Bynum Considers Another Knee Procedure
Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum made it through the season healthy for the first time in years and has scheduled his offseason plans around making sure he stays that way.
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.
“He just told me it helped him out,” Bynum said of Bryant’s advice after his exit interview with Lakers coach Mike Brown and general manager Mitch Kupchak.
Bynum said he could undergo the treatment on both of his knees, depending on the results of an MRI he will have done in the coming months.
“Nothing feels wrong,” Bynum said. “It’s supposed to regenerate tissue and stuff like that, so I want to check that out.”
