The 76ers reportedly want a payment from the Lakers for misinformation during their 2012 trade for Andrew Bynum.
"They are saying the Lakers didn't disclose all of the information about Bynum's knees," a source told beat writer Keith Pompey. Bynum never played for Philly due to chronic knee injuries. This report came simultaneously with news that Philly allegedly paid the Pelicans $3 million for failing to disclose Jrue Holiday's preexisting leg injury, so the Sixers may be trying to balance their books by going after L.A. For what it's worth, both the 76ers and Pelicans have refused to comment on the report. Jun 28 - 7:35 PM

Andrew Bynum will go through a workout with the Los Angeles Clippers this week.

Bynum is coming off a disaster off a 2014-15 season, during which he averaged 8.7 points, 5.6 boards, and 1.1 blocks in just 26 games. The Clippers could provide a safe landing spot for the 26-year-old, but his balky knees have only allowed him to play 26 games over the past two seasons, so fantasy owners would be wise to erase their memories of Bynum's glory days for now.

Andrew Bynum (knee) could sit out all of the 2014-15 season.

He is looking into the Regenokine Program made famous by guys like Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez. Bynum was completely out of shape last season and his career obviously wouldn't last with the way it's going right now. If the rest goes well, he could wind up back with Phil Jackson for the 2015-16 season.

The Knicks could go after Andrew Bynum (knee) this offseason, according to ESPN NY.

The reasoning is that Phil Jackson coached Bynum while his knees actually were able to move him up and down a basketball court. The Knicks need a big man behind Tyson Chandler, but this is probably not the solution.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will miss the remainder of the playoffs.

"We want to thank Andrew and our medical staff for trying to get the issues with his knee resolved," said Pacers president Larry Bird. "We wish him the best in the future." Injuries continue to decimate Bynum, who appeared in only two games for the Pacers after playing in 24 games for the Cavaliers. He may have a hard time finding guaranteed money as a free agent this summer.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will not play against the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs.

This isn't a surprise and he hasn't seen game action since Mar. 15. Bynum played in just two games since the Pacers brought him on board and they've obviously swung and missed here. The team hasn't been getting much out of their center spot, so Ian Mahinmi could be an X-factor for their success in the postseason.

Andrew Bynum (right knee) remains out indefinitely.

Bynum played two games with the Pacers before swelling and soreness in his knee shut him down, and it's possible that he won't step on the court until the playoffs. "We do hope he’s going to be back," said coach Frank Vogel. "He’s a heck of a basketball player. He’s not only a big man, but a talented, physical presence." Ian Mahinmi's role backing up Roy Hibbert is safe for now.

The Pacers confirmed on Friday that Andrew Bynum (right knee) will be out indefinitely.

He has continued swelling and soreness in his knee, which comes as no surprise. Coach Frank Vogel said he knew what his team signed up for when they picked up Bynum and chances are they had their expectations very low. Ian Mahinmi will continue to serve as the backup center. There's a good chance we won't see Bynum on the court the rest of the season.

Andrew Bynum (knee) is expected to be out "a while" according to coach Frank Vogel.

Bynum experienced some swelling in his surgically-repaired right knee over the weekend and had to have his knee drained on Monday. "He played in the Detroit game, aggravated a previous condition and had some swelling in there," Vogel said. "He’s going to be out for a little while." Bynum has looked good in the two games that he's played for the Pacers, but he can't stay healthy enough to be worth owning in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues at the moment.

Andrew Bynum had his right knee drained on Monday and is concerned at how much fluid was removed.

Things are not going well with Bynum's knee right now and we're still awaiting the results of an MRI. He won't travel to New York for Wednesday's game, and it would be a surprise to see him play at any time in the next week.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will not play against the Sixers on Monday night and had an MRI on his knee.

There's no word in the severity of the swelling and he should be considered questionable for Wednesday vs. the Knicks. This doesn't sound like the Pacers are just resting him and coach Frank Vogel said the team will have more info in the future. Bynum isn't going to be 100 percent any time soon and he has basically no fantasy value.

Andrew Bynum played 20 minutes and hit 6-of-18 shots for 15 points, nine rebounds and a block in Saturday's win.

Wow. Bynum was firing at will tonight and while there's plenty to be excited about after two games with the Pacers, it's important to note that they're going to rest him often to keep him ready for the playoffs. Consider him day-to-day for the rest of the season and start him at your own risk, paying close attention to our news page to find out when he'll be in or out of the lineup. He took Friday off, but looked good on Saturday, despite the poor shooting.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will miss Friday's game against the 76ers.

Even though Bynum will miss Friday's game against the Sixers, the team did add that he will be active for Saturday's game against Detroit. Ian Mahinmi is listed as a game-time decision for Friday, so Bynum may have to take a backseat at the third-string center if Mahinmi is able to suit up on Saturday. The 26-year-old managed to put up eight points and 10 boards in 16 minutes of action on Tuesday, but his fantasy value is still limited to the deepest of leagues.

Andrew Bynum did not practice on Wednesday.

Coach Frank Vogel said he doesn't how if Bynum can play in back-to-back sets, which is not a surprise at all after countless conditioning issues and knee problems over the past couple seasons. He played 16 minutes on Tuesday and looked a little better than expected, but there's no way fantasy owners should take any sort of chance on Bynum.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 03:44:00 PM

Andrew Bynum (knees) isn't sure whether he'll play in both of Indiana's back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday.

The Pacers initial plan was to rest him for a game, but that could change if his body responds well after his 16-minute debut on Tuesday. He scored eight points with 10 rebounds in his first stint of the season, and looked surprisingly good while doing so, but fantasy owners should view him skeptically in standard leagues.
