Re: UPDATE: Bynum could be out until early January

Can they terminate the contract because he was injured playing another sport?

Andrew Bynum not close to return
Updated: December 10, 2012, 8:02 PM ET
Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Andrew Bynum still has pain in his left knee that has kept him from making his debut with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Bynum is in pain when he walks or attempts even light physical activity, except for swimming. He had been recovering from a bone bruise in his right knee and injured his left knee while bowling last month.


The 7-foot center will have his knees examined again Dec. 20th and did not know if he'd need an MRI.

"Worst case scenario, it's another month," he said Monday night. "Best case scenario, I can ramp it up."

Bynum has not or practiced or played for the Sixers since he was acquired in the offseason from the Los Angeles Lakers. Bynum said his right knee has improved to the point where he might have been able to play. He was again listed as inactive for Philadelphia's game against Detroit with "bilateral bone bruises."

"There's nothing I can do about it," he said. "It's arthritis in the knees. Cartilage is missing. That's not going to regrow itself. Maybe in the future, next three to five years, there may be something out there that really does help. Right now, it's kind of a waiting game."

No more cartilage? Arthritis? I think dude's career is over.

Sad shit.

Well, technically they can grow cartilage, but the operation requires a rigorous rehab program.

It's microfracture that does that, right?

Microfracture = Amare/Kidd/Grant Hill. No cartilage = Brandon Roy's knee/Rip Hamilton's face.

Never heard of an athlete coming back from no cartilage. Except Hamilton.

It ended Jon Benders career. And a little bit of me died when that happened.

Re: UPDATE: Bynum could be out until early January

I don't think Bynum gets it though. I would go out and play this season even if it destroyed my knees for the rest of my life. With his shitty injury history, this is his last shot at a big contract. And if he can be anywhere around 20 and 10 some dumb team will max him out. Yet hes so dumb hes going to sit on the sidelines and still expect someone to pay him.


Hes an idiot.

Microfracture surgery is supposed to replace cartilage with scar tissue. It's not always successful with really big/tall men, Lafrentz and Oden, for example (Amar'e is 2"-3" smaller than those guys). However they can also clone cartilage these days. So if there's any left they can, in essence, reconstruct his knee (Olympic swimmer Dara Torres, for example, underwent this procedure) using cloned cartilage and muscle fiber. But the rehab is really grueling and it takes a lot of self-discipline.

Not a max. It will be a 1-2 year deal.

If he would have just kept quiet and said he had an injury that would be different, but to come out and basically say "Well, both knees are ****ed. And its not something that can get much better with time." hes really been ****ing himself over.

GM's were already leery about his knees, now hes made it 10x worse.


Of course some team will take a shot at him, but its not going to be the max year, max money deal he could get if he just sucked it up and went on the court for the rest of the season and pretended everything was ok.

Oh who am I kidding I'm just remaining skeptical because he's on my fantasy team.
