When's he getting it? He gonna' hold it off till later so he can miss some of training camp and potentially some games? Any updates on this? I hope desperately it improves his mobility some or lack-thereof rather.

UPDATE:
Credit to Kobe Bryant 24.

He's not having it till September.

Bynum told reporters Wednesday he will travel to Germany in September to undergo Orthokine therapy, the same procedure Kobe Bryant underwent last offseason from the innovator of the treatment, Dr. Peter Wehling.

^ If it gains him at least slightly more mobility then yes. Perhaps he will move ever slightly more quicker.

I was wondering the same thing. I would hope he does it early enough to be ready for camp.

Hopefully he is responsible about it this time.

With how much time he's already missed because of his knees throughout his career, I hope not missing more time is a priority for him.

^ I think we all wonder that, but unfortunately I have a bad feeling he's gonna' miss some time. Why September? Why so late? Why not now? Why didn't he do it as soon as the season ended?

Because the Dr probably has a lot of athletes and clients and you need to get on a list to receive the procedure and September is the earliest time?

^ Wow, no offense, but I'm not buying that at all. That seems like way too much of reach to me. I know you're a huge Bynum fan & all, but c'mon now. September? Seriously? Didn't do it earlier? Can't do it now? Can't even do it August? That's too much for me.

You're gonna give people a heart attack with the sub-title.

It doesn't mention anywhere that he may miss time. Until it does, I don't think you should mention it, even with a question mark.

^ Until someone ('source'/'report') outright comes out and confirms that won't be the case, it remains a grand possibility scary and as frustrating as it might sound.

Surgery's not a joke and you usually don't recover from it in such a quick amount of time, especially something as delicate as your knees. I could be wrong and I could be right. It could go either way. Of course, as all Laker fans, I hope for the former, but until we get some concrete confirmation on all of this as far as potential or estimated recovery time, again, question mark stands.

You are aware that the doctor is pretty much seeked out professionally right now and Bynum talked to him about the procedure months ago. If September is the earliest the doctor could get him then it's the earliest the doctor could get him.

It's not as simple as calling the doctor and going "Hey I want the procedure" and the doctor going "ok I can fit you in tomorrow!"

It's more like "Hey, I would like to schedule the knee procedure, when can you get me in?" and the doctor going "Well I have many other clients and patients, but the earliest I could fit you in would probably be September"

THAT is more realistic.

It's misleading because it seems like that's what's being reported before I read the topic/article.
