But those already tender knees are failing him, they have not responded to the 'precautionary' (I can't even say that with a straight face) injections, and it has prevented him from joining his team and bonding with his new teammates on the court. Now I suppose if it were a dire situation like say the playoffs, he'd suck it up and drag those 'sore' knees out there. But he's getting bi-annual silicon injections, plasma therapy which is also injected, AND he's wearing braces on both knees. Now he needs these injections in order to play and keep the knees from discenigrating to dust. But he got the plasma in Sept, and the silicon in October. It's November...and he's still 'sore.' That's a rather extensive recovery curve.
1) The injections aren't "precautionary". He's been having them on a regular basis since 2010. They are a maintenance procedure.
2) The plasma therapy was scheduled in May. Way before Bynum even had the bone bruise. Bynum talks about it in his exit interview.
3) What's keeping him from joining the team is a bone bruise that he developed while doing something on the practice court. It has nothing to do with the injections.
4) He's not wearing braces on both knees. Only the right knee. Which he's been doing since 2009.
It sounds to me like you're not properly informed on what's going on.
