Aside from getting out of the gates to a slow 5-4 start, the Sixers are still playing without Andrew Bynum.
To make matters worse, the news broke over the weekend that Andrew Bynum aggravated his knee injury while bowling.
Bynum said, “I had a little bit of a setback, and we’re just working through some issues with the right knee. 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.”
As if there weren’t enough concerns about his maturity, this may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
Bynum has yet to set foot on the court for Philadelphia and may not be back, barring further “setbacks,” until January.
The Los Angeles Lakers won’t have to wait until January for Mike D’Antoni, but they will have to wait at least one more game.
