Were you excited to see Andrew Bynum return to the court last week for the Indiana Pacers? If so, you better hold onto those memories, as Bynum is out again with more knee issues.
Andrew Bynum won’t join the Pacers on their trip to New York, but instead will stay in town to treat swelling in his knees that are causing him pain — and to miss games.
“The knees are still swollen so he’s going to stay behind to get some work in here and some treatment here,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel said following Tuesday’s practice.
Bynum has experienced significant swelling in his right knee and underwent an MRI and had it drained Monday afternoon.
Can’t be mad at him for collecting a check, but like I said last season when Bynum was with the Sixers, he’s a wrap. I know you can’t teach height, and when healthy and focused, Bynum is a tremendous talent. But, his best days are long behind him.
In his only game with the Pacers this season, Bynum scored eight points and grabbed 10 rebounds in 16 minutes...

Andrew Bynum back in a Lakers uniform? Really?
The two-time NBA champion says that he was considering a return to the Los Angeles Lakers after he was waived by the Chicago Bulls earlier this season.
Bynum was traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers after he was suspended indefinitely “for conduct detrimental to the team.” The Bulls then immediately waived Bynum as...
It was just a matter of when, not if.
The question begs how long will Bynum be out for?

Bynum has swelling in knee, had MRI according to Vogel. Doesn't sound like planned rest, but as Vogel said, what we signed up for.

The swelling started in Bynum’s knee after he had his best game as a Pacers dropping 15 points and grabbing 9 rebounds against the Pistons.
Now, the Pacers aren’t sure when Bynum will return to action. Here are the details from Pacers.com.

Chief among the obstacles tasked to a team chasing the top seed in its conference — not to mention much greater heights in the ensuing months — remains surviving the homestretch of the long grind of the regular season. With the playoffs lurking, it's tempting to look ahead.
These days, it's pretty simple: Win 'em easy, win 'em hard, win 'em ugly. For the...
A pig was the undisputed star of the halftime show during the mid-game break of the Philadelphia 76ers-Indiana Pacers tilt at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Monday. Why was the pig the undisputed star? Because it was on the court during a halftime show, that’s why. That’s all it takes. Not only that, said pig was cruising […] The post Pig cruises around court in wagon during halftime...
Paul George is not having a great shooting night as the Pacers struggle at home against the 76ers.
George took a whole month’s worth of frustration out on the 76ers Henry Sims with this filthy posterization for an and-1.
Today, in Oft-Injured Centers Attempting To Resurrect Their Careers news, the Miami Heat announced that Greg Oden will remain the starting center for the remainder of the regular season — with the caveat that he likely still won’t play in back-to-backs. Still, for everyone hoping Oden could make it through one season without falling apart, the fact he’s now starting for a defending...
The New York Knicks played host to the Indiana Pacers Wednesday in what would turn out to be the best game in Madison Square Garden this season. Phil Jackson was introduced to Knicks fans and the team was able to hold on to defeat the first-seed Indiana Pacers. Throw in the standing ovation the Knicks got from the fans for their performance and the “MVP” chants for Carmelo Anthony...
Andrew Bynum didn’t make the trip to New York for Wednesday night’s game against the Knicks, and the move to hold him out wasn’t simply precautionary the way it was on the first night of a back-to-back when Indiana played the Sixers on Friday.
Bynum is injured at the moment, and after experiencing some swelling which required him to have his knee drained, Pacers head coach...
Despite the repeated emphasis of coach Frank Vogel before the game, the Indiana Pacers don't have their swagger back. At least not yet. The Knicks have struggled all year but came into the game at Madison Square Garden on a 6-game winning streak. The Pacers had won 4-straight but they were all hard-fought battles against cellar dwellers. But with an added emotional boost from...
Andrew Bynum has been back on an NBA court for all of a week, playing in two games, he has averaged 11.5 points and 9.5 rebounds a game. He played 20 minutes Saturday night in Detroit.
That was enough to lead to swelling in his knee, which will keep him out Monday night against the Sixers, coach Frank Vogel announced.
