When rating activities based on participants' potential for injury, bowling lands somewhere between chess and badminton. The odds were long that Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum would re-injure his knees while bowling, but ESPN.com reported that's what occurred earlier this month. Bynum, who has missed Philadelphia's first nine games due to a bruised right knee, announced Friday that he experienced a setback in which his left knee sustained a similar injury. ESPN.com cited multiple sources saying that the left knee problem followed a trip to the bowling alley. "I don't know what's going on, but the doctors are saying pretty much that it's a weakened cartilage state," Bynum said Friday. According to ESPN.com, bowling is not one of the activities banned from standard NBA contracts. Bynum, 25, spent the previous seven seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers. He enjoyed his best year in 2011-12, averaging 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game, both career highs. The 7-footer moved to Philadelphia in the offseason as part of the four-team trade that sent center Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic to the Lakers. Bynum has yet to practice with his new team. Sixers general manager Tony DiLeo told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Friday he had no more information available concerning the results of Bynum's latest medical examination. DiLeo said Bynum would be re-evaluated in mid-December and that MRIs would be done on both knees at that time. The team is hoping Bynum will be ready to play by mid-January.
