Andrew Bynum was an All-Star center for the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2011-2012 season. He missed all last season with knee injuries and has struggled to get a lot of time on the court this season with the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Bynum will now miss at least the next two games due to personal matters.

Last baseball season saw more than a few--but what about basketball? @SBNationGIF/Twitter NBA games don't tend to be life threatening for fans (as long as they don't get too close to the rail on one of the upper decks)...

Irving and Cavs stall in Chicago despite start from Bynum, lose 96-81
