Sixers fear Andrew Bynum has done additional damage to his knees by bowling recently, multiple sources told ESPN.
The Complex Business of Taxing (And Advising) Athletes For athletes, the challenge of choosing a team that gives them the best opportunity to win championships while maximizing their earnings potential continues to be a delicate balance filled with unknowns. Basketball reasons aside, Dwight Howard's decision to leave Los Angeles was hardly a disastrous one from a financial perspective.
A prominent, highly respected orthopedic surgeon who is not involved in Bynum’s treatment and has not seen his MRIs, told The News Journal that Bynum has likely been diagnosed with osteochondral lesions. The condition may heal on its own, but will likely keep Bynum from practicing until March or April, at the earliest. If it doesn’t heal, Bynum will require surgery that could sideline him for up to a year. He should find out if he needs surgery by as early as December, the surgeon said.
“I started investigating [the bowling] a little bit,” Twersky said. “And one of the people that I hit, a guy who has played with him before, he texted me back and said ‘I don’t know if that’s true [the bowling], but I do know that I’ve never met another player in the league who likes basketball less [than Bynum].”
