But, but, but I thought Bynum's knee injuries were only caused by him not knowing how to plant properly?

We did dodge a HUGE bullet, but you can't help but feel for the guy. He's a tremendous talent and only deserves to play. He must have injured his knees on a three point shot.

I feel bad for Bynum, but I still don't see how or why he's missed so much time. Last season he played all, but one game and didn't suffer a serious injury obviously.

i also feel bad for him, but last season made the trade possible, he´s performance

PHILADELPHIA -- Injured Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Andrew Bynum said Friday he has suffered a "setback" in his return from a knee injury.


Bynum, acquired by Philadelphia in a four-team trade before the season, has yet to play for the Sixers and spoke before a game against Utah.

He has been recovering from a bone bruise on his right knee, and his return has been pushed back three times since the beginning of training camp. The Sixers were hoping Bynum would be cleared to return to basketball activities by Dec. 10.

That date is now in question because of issues with his left knee. Bynum says he now has swelling and a bone bruise on both knees.

"I had a little bit of a setback," Bynum said. "Just working through some issues with the right knee, I kind of have a mirror thing going on with the left knee. I don't know what's going on. The doctors are saying it's a weakened cartilage state, so we kind of wait, I guess. We can't do anything. I just have to wait for the cartilage to get strong."

Bynum did say he targeted Dec. 10 as a possibility, with one to four weeks of basketball-related activity to follow, pushing his much-anticipated debut to anywhere from mid-to-late December to as late as mid-January.

"It's the same exact spot (as the right knee) with the cartilage," Bynum said. "Just doing routine things and it started swelling up. No blunt-force injury or anything like that. It's the same timetable still."

The Sixers entered Friday 4-4 without Bynum, including three straight losses at home.

Bynum announced in May, while still a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, that he was going to Germany in September for the
Orthokine blood-spinning treatment in his knees that other professional athletes have sought. The Sixers announced before training camp that Bynum needed to delay his return to allow the effects of the Orthokine treatment to work.

The bone bruise in his right knee caused the Sixers to push the return date from training camp to the regular season and now possibly to midseason.

But the Sixers are still looking long term with Bynum, who's in the last year of his contract.

"My main concern is Andrew's health," Sixers general manager Tony DiLeo said. "My main concern is big picture. We want to have a long relationship with him."

It's not dodging a bullet when you knew the gun was loaded the whole time.

The Lakers were patient, groomed him enough to sell and waited for the right deal.

That's called a quality organization that put it over yet another team in another great trade.

I dont know how to feel about this...mixed emotions. I feel bad that hes hurt because he went bowling, which is nothing, I know NBA players who bowl a lot....is he that brittle?

At the same time I feel extremely fortunate about our club, wow did we dodge a huge bullet or what?

My guess is he went over the limit line and slipped.

That is the only way I see him getting hurt by bowling

The Philadelphia 76ers fear All-Star center Andrew Bynum might have done additional damage to his knees while bowling, according to sources close to the situation.

Multiple sources told ESPN on Saturday that Bynum suffered an unspecified injury this month while bowling. On Friday, Bynum revealed that -- on top of the issues with his right knee that could keep him sidelined until January -- he also had suffered a "setback" with his left knee.


"I had a little bit of a setback, and we're just working through some issues with the right knee," Bynum said before the Sixers beat the Utah Jazz on Friday night. "I kind of have a mirror thing going on with my left knee. I don't know what's going on, but the doctors are saying pretty much that it's a weakened cartilage state."

There are several activities that are prohibited in standard NBA player contracts, but bowling is not one of them. Bynum is known to enjoy bowling.

Multiple calls to Bynum's agent, David Lee, were not returned.

Bynum, who has yet to play or practice with the team, was acquired in the blockbuster four-team trade in August that also sent Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic to the Los Angeles Lakers.

In September Bynum went to Germany to receive Orthokine therapy injections in both knees. In October he received preventative lubricating injections. The reason those procedures were done so close to the season, the team said, was to maximize their effects. At some point, however, Bynum developed a bone bruise that has sidetracked his rehabilitation and recovery.

The Sixers have pushed back Bynum's hoped return date three different times and have released a series of detailed statements on the matter. But before Bynum's comments there was never any mention of left knee pain or weakened cartilage.

"I've just got to wait for the cartilage to get stronger, and that's pretty much what's going on," Bynum said. "The pain is about the same, but there is swelling in both knees that we have under control. It's the same spot, bone bruise on both sides."
