Just when the Philadelphia 76ers had some sort of timetable for Andrew Bynum’s return, he suffers — yet again — another setback. This time, though, it could have been avoided, as ESPN reports it was suffered during a recent bowling adventure.
The Philadelphia 76ers fear All-Star center Andrew Bynum might have done additional damage to his knees while bowling, according to sources close to the situation.
Multiple sources told ESPN on Saturday that Bynum suffered an unspecified injury this month while bowling. On Friday, Bynum revealed that — on top of the issues with his right knee that could keep him sidelined until January — he also had suffered a “setback” with his left knee.
“I had a little bit of a setback, and we’re just working through some issues with the right knee,” Bynum said before the Sixers beat the Utah Jazz on Friday night. “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.”
Bynum has yet to practice, let alone play, with his team, and this news — I’m sure — isn’t something that Sixers fans will want to hear.
My only question is, how did he sustain further injury with his knee while bowling? I mean, bowling, really?
