09:50 AM ET 11.18 | 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. There are several activities that are prohibited in standard NBA player contracts, but bowling is not one of them. Bynum is known to enjoy bowling.

If it happened during bowling then his knee is not stable enough to play in the NBA.

Another mindless act by Bynum, it simply never stops with him. The Lakers are breathing a sigh of relief when they unloaded this immature moron. Whats next Andrew should be the question.

If I were the sixers GM, I would let him walk and cut my losses rather than double-whamming myself with a large contract.
AI wasn't panning out, but Bynum is not your man either. I'm not sure if they also gave up draft picks in that trade.
Whatever it is, bad move, close the chapter and move on, rather than trying to justify a bad move with another bad move.

+1, with all of this going down, it appears the Lakers reallygot the better deal.

The only option I see for 76ers is to see if there is any interest in a trade with a local bowling team.

True.

Has been ever since he punk'd Barea.

Best move the Lakers have made in the last two tears was ridding themselves of that POC.

He's a beast!!! He's going to average 25 points and 15 rebounds!!!! HOF baby!!!


Hey, I don't wish the guy any harm, but WtheF was everybody thinking when they were losing their crap over this guy. He has played the grand total of one full season in the NBA. How could anyone think we would not be living this exact scenario when they were saying he was better and more important than Dwight Howard?

Honestly, he's missed more than half his career with injuries, acts like a punk, and then 'shows up' about half the time when he does play...and now everyone is surprised he's on the shelf?
