Bynum Frustrated; ‘Got to bide my time’
76ers center Andrew Bynum never thought going bowling, one of his favorite pastimes, could do damage to his knees. But he believes that’s exactly what happened and it’s added frustration in his struggle to get healthy.
The Sixers aren’t changing the timetable set for Bynum’s return than before learning of the new injury. The plan remains to have him re-evaluated in three weeks and hope that he’ll be cleared to return to the court. But clearly there is concern that Bynum seems to be getting worse and not better.
“It sucks; I just don’t know what to expect,” Bynum said. “I have an issue with my knees and we’re trying to resolve it. There’s no surgical procedures that will really help or are safe to do at the moment. I’ve just got to bide my time.”
“They’re being supportive,” Bynum said of his team. “Obviously in hindsight you shouldn’t go bowling, but it’s not more than anything I’ve done in my rehab.”
