Turns out that the injections that Andrew Bynum will have in his knees in the coming days are the same injections he’s been having every year for the past “three or four years,” according to his agent, and there is no need to be worried.
“He’s been getting them for quite some time now,” agent David Lee, reached Sunday afternoon, said. “Look at it as being nothing more than, like, a WD-40 for his knees.”
Bynum will receive injections of Synvisc-One, or SYNVISC, Lee said.
“The best way I can describe it is it greases up the joint and that’s a good thing,” Lee said. “They did it last year. It’s routine. It’s non-invasive.”
Lee also said that to the best of his knowledge Bynum “is on schedule to be ready” for the team’s season-opener on Oct. 31.
