Well if that's the case then Philly fans should expect more "smart moves" from their team. When healthy and has his mind on the game, Bynum is a force. Question is, how often will those two elements come together?

This I'm a lakers fan and I agree lots of people will say well thank god the lakers got rid of him but that's just because we got Dwight now, but Philly is smart resting and keeping Bynum out for most of the pre-season

I don't see Bynum as a franchise player. He's 24 and they are already "protecting" him before he even plays a game?

Fact is Bynum is entering his 8th season now and has missed significant time in 5 of his previous 7 years.

They're protecting him because there is no reason for him to play in preseason games when he just had a procedure done on his knee. He'll be fine.

Here come all the "I told you so" and overreactioners out in full force. Bynum will be fine.This is a smart decision. Sixers don't need him for preseason. The only thing would be from a chemistry standpoint but Bynum will be ready when it counts.

is this really "breaking news" or is it just "news", the media seems to throw out that word so freely these days, maybe if he were out for the YEAR but 3 weeks? during training camp? C'MON SON

Why did Bynum take so long to have the procedure? He's been off all summer long and should have had it done when his season ended so that he could be ready for the start of training camp.

Because he was on a fishing trip in Canada. Or some BS.

Actually no...

The doctor who performed the procedure recommended he get it done right before the season starts in order to maximize the effects of the procedure for the long term. Bynum has said this himself.

He's a professional athlete, following the recommendation of a world-renowned doctor. He's not just messing around all summer like an idiot. He's got family, doctors, trainers, agents, etc all telling him what his best course of action is, and this was it.

The "magical" German cure....is less magical than they want to sell.

Their Top Notch well known patient has been Rafa Nadal.

It worked very good at first.

Right now? not so much.

The team said Monday that Bynum also had a bone bruise on his right knee. He will continue to participate in low-impact conditioning drills.

Bynum said he felt some discomfort in the knee over the weekend and the team decided to shut down their new franchise player. He said the bone bruise was unrelated to the knee treatment.

Basically, its just as the title says, precautionary. The team isn't going to take any chances with the kid since they hope he will be the present and the future of the franchise.

He is still going to be working out, participating in walk-throughs, and some team drills.

Apparently, it is working well.


He said this current knee ailment isn’t as bad as the issues that have dogged him in the past.

“I feel a lot better,” he said. “The (treatment) is definitely working.”

Bynum said doctors advised he have the knee treatment — called Orthokine — closer to the season for maximum effectiveness. Bynum said he had the injections during the third week in September.

They got the same treatment. Nadal has a more serious injury problem though. He tore his patella tendon, whereas Bynum has a bone bruise. A bone bruise can heal with rest.

Bynum hasn't had invasive surgery for anything in a couple of years, so that is a good sign.

Overall, I'm not too worried now that he and the team spoke on it. Unless something else happens, he should be fine before the season, which is most important.

So what if Nadal and Bynum had the same procedure?

Did they have the exact same knee problem beforehand? Do they use their knees in the exact same way when they play sports? Do they have the same bodies, genetically? Are they the same age? There are an infinite amount of possibilities that will affect their knees, both related and unrelated to the procedure before and after it occurs.

Everyone reacts to medical procedures differently. They are in totally different situations. If you're not a doctor, Crooner, then maybe you don't really know what you're talking about... Using Nadal as an example for how Bynum's knees will hold up is pretty much random babble at this point.

And this is why I tempered my expectations with him in Philly. He just had work done on his knee, now a bone bruise on the same one is scary.

After the Lakers beat the Celtics in the Finals Bynum waited to have a knee operation so he could go to the world cup, had it a month late and wasn't ready for the start of the season. His agent is a dumb *** and Bynum isn't into using team doctors. He has his doctor out of NY and what he says goes.

Kobe also had it before the team USA training camp in Vegas and didn't miss any practice time or games.

Dont worry Bynum is fine. Bynum dont put mileage on his knee if it is not the real deal. Those are million dollar knees.
