Default Bynum is still recovering?

Where is this guy? I know he was injured, but he was supposed to be back near the end of the regular season. Is he still recovering?

LA Times reported last week that he was considering more surgery on the knee.

He won't be back this year.

He did not have surgery for this injury, so he is considering an exporatory surgery to see what is up, not more surgery.

My bad.


Either way it appears he won't be back this season... unless it's just a smokescreen.

The doctors said they were recomending exploratory surgery in 2-3 weeks if pain and swelling were still present. The current prognosis is for him to be ready for camp in the fall.

No it would disrupt chemistry. I expect him to be a nice 6th man next year though. I doubt they take Vlad out of the starting lineup and move Odom and Gasol around. I bet he just turns into a high quality bench big who plays 25+ a night.

I actually believe it will help Gasol fit even better than now, considering he prefers PF.
I don't think he disrupts chemistry because Bynum just rebounds, defends and gets passes near the basket to score. That's all theoretical talk anyways

If he comes back full strength next year, then the odds of him being a 6th man are about the same as Kobe's.

Default Re: Bynum is still recovering?

I believe the Lakers figured that they are title contenders right now and rushing Bynum back could hurt more than it could help for 2 reasons.

1.It's be very difficult to add another big man into the lineup during the middle of the playoffs. That mgiht hurt the team right now.
2.Bynum could make his injury worse

If the Lakers win a title or even make it to the finals then I think Phil consider bringing him off the bench. Many people forget that Vlad's main purpose is spacing so the offense can run smooth as hell. With Bynum, Gasol, and Odom the spacing would suffer but the defense would improve depending on who the lakers play.
