its probably his knees just aren't right.
The 76ers claim they're keeping Bynum out for 3 weeks as a "precautionary measure". If they keep him out longer, then I'll agree with you.
still not worried? its been almost 5 weeks now...
I agree. It's definitely not "precautionary" anymore. The 76ers have since changed their tune to "well we aren't going to let him play until he's pain-free". Which is pretty confusing to me. How many players who have played professional basketball for 7 years can claim to be pain free? Much less a player who had two knee surgeries? The newspapers are claiming that he has "knee discomfort". What's that exactly? Can he play on it without making it worse? It's hard to tell what the hell they're talking about. Bynum himself has told reporters that he could play if the team really needed him. No real straight answers coming forth.
Judging from the quotes from Bynum and the rest of the 76ers players and staff it looks like they are trying to prevent a Derek Rose situation from happening. The whole league seems to be ultra-conservative this year with their high-value players. From Granger, Ginobli, the two Denver players who missed the 76ers Nuggets game, etc, etc. Makes me wonder if the owners got together and had a secret handshake meeting and said "if you don't play your guy when he's hurt, I won't play mine".
