Bynum out three weeks due to knee discomfort

The 76ers announced Monday that center Andrew Bynum will not participate in basketball activities for the next three weeks to "maximize the therapeutic effects" of the non-invasive procedure he underwent on his knees last month.

 Bynum said that he "felt some discomfort" on his knees -- both of which received Orkathine therapy -- and that the team had decided that rest, as a precautionary measure, was required.

Bynum was examined by team physician Jack McPhilemy and was also diagnosed with a bone bruise to his right knee.

Bynum said that the two issues are not related. Asked if he should have opted to have had the procedure done earlier, Bynum said he was told by the physician who performed the procedure, Peter Wehling, that it was best to have the procedure done right before training camp.
