Indiana Pacers big man injured again

Published Add your comment

The Indiana Pacers brought in Andrew Bynum as basically in preparation for when they face the Miami Heat in the playoffs.

But things haven't gone anywhere near as smoothly as the Pacers would have hoped.

Since being acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers on the 1st of February, the big man has played a mammoth two games out of a possible 23.

And after finally making his debut against the Boston Celtics 10 days ago, the 26-year old is out again.

After not playing against the 76ers, many just assumed its because Philly are so bad, it turns out Bynum’s knee continues to bother him.

According to the Pacers’ head coach Frank Vogel, he will be out “a little while.”

“He played in the Detroit game, aggravated a previous condition and had some swelling in there,” Vogel said according to Pro Basketball Talk. “He’s going to be out for a little while.”

Bynum has looked good in the two occasions he has actually appeared on the hardwood for Indiana.

In his debut against the Celtics he played 16 minutes and was 3 of 4 shooting for eight points and 10 rebounds.

Four days later against the Pistons he was even better and started looking like the former all-star he can be when putting up 15 points and nine rebounds in a big victory on the road.

Whilst they are struggling at the moment and in a bit of the slump, all of the Pacers focus right now will be on the playoffs where they hope Bynum can make a big impact.

They'll have to get him healthy first.
