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. Jul 19 - 9:13 AM

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.
Mar 21 - 5:51 PM

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.
Mar 20 - 11:36 AM

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.
Mar 18 - 2:05 PM

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.
Mar 17 - 5:29 PM

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.
Mar 15 - 10:50 PM

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.
Mar 13 - 1:33 PM

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.
Mar 12 - 3:44 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.
Mar 12 - 9:37 AM

Andrew Bynum made his Pacers debut on Tuesday and hit 3-of-4 shots for eight points and 10 rebounds in 16 minutes on Tuesday.

Yes, he looked good against the Celtics and had a spring in his step, which he acknowledged in a post-game interview, but he's far from a lock to stay healthy for very long. We'll have to see how his knees feel in the morning and his return to Philadelphia on Friday should be interesting, to say the least. We're still not sold on Bynum being worth owning over the rest of the season, but if his knees can stay healthy, anything is possible. If you're desperate at center and have someone to cut, feel free to take a flier on him.
Mar 11 - 10:15 PM

Andrew Bynum (knee) is expected to play roughly 15 minutes in his season debut on Tuesday, according to coach Frank Vogel

This is consistent with expectations since Bynum will be assuming Ian Mahinmi's 15-minute role off the bench while Mahinmi recovers from a rib injury. Vogel wants Bynum to "just to fit in and play his game" as the Pacers look to snap their four-game losing skid, and there's no reason to approach him in standard fantasy leagues.
