From today's daily dime:

Andrew Bynum's knee tear was discovered to be more serious than expected.

I smell BS.

He can't go into ANY detail? Fake (or just informed wrongly??)...hopefully.

I don't think he knows more than the rest of the press or even us, I think he just threw that in there.

I think he's just basing that off the fact that most people didn't think he'd be out 8-12 weeks since Bynum himself said he felt it wasn't as bad as last year's injury. I don't think it's anything we should look more deeply into.

I think he just means it was worse than originally thought. At first, it was believed to just be a hyperextension, but ended up being a tear.

to be honest.. i'd rather us win the championship without him... rather than him rush back.. after TWO BAD [expletive] injuries... and hurt himself again, but even worse. let him come back pure next season. plus we need to see more of that odom we saw the other night... that had me inspired.

From the OC Register:

Injured Lakers center Andrew Bynum will begin riding a stationary bike Thursday, signaling the beginning of his rehabilitation from a torn medial collateral ligament of the right knee. The prognosis is that Bynum will miss 8-12 weeks.

Lakers spokeman John Black said Monday that Bynum would remain in Los Angeles during the All-Star break, rather than travel back home to New Jersey.

What a shocker. Glad it isn't anything chronic (sarcasm). I hope this is wrong, but I just think Bynum has bad knees and this will be an every season occurence. As I said this is nothing more than my opinion and I hope I am wrong.

Exactly MDI. We all want him to come back, but I will be honest, I don't doubt this one bit and last year we kept hearing he was coming back from local media too. Ding wrote recently that Bynum was more apt to be injured, but Lakers seemed to shoot that down. I think Ding was right and he is an injury waiting to happen when it comes to his knees.

not discounting your view, its valid but c'mon man...ANY big man who gets he knee rolled on like that would have gotten injured...its not like he injured himself on a harmless play

As I said just my opinion. God knows I hope I am wrong and you are right. I am not basing it on anything other than just my gut feeling on this and a few reports saying his knees aren't that great.

As long as its not completely torn, he'll likely return. If it's torn, he's out for the season.

Every sprain is a tear of the fibers. It can range from a simple sprain to a complete tear. As long as it's not too severe, it will repair itself. Complete tears require surgery and an extended rehab time.


The key is getting the timing right. Balance the time it takes to heal to a certain percentage of integrity (of the tendon/ligament) so the person can start to strengthen the muscles surrounding the joint to assist in protecting the tendon/ligament from further injury.


I seriously doubt a radiologist (or an orthoped) missed a complete tear on the MRI. That said, even if it's worse, its not much worse. It was already listed as a moderate to severe tear. There isn't much room to get worse than that without it being almost complete torn, requiring surgery.

So yes, it can be worse...no, worse doesn't mean season ending (necessarily), based on the previous reports.
