Andrew Bynum will be out indefinitely, the Indiana Pacers have confirmed.
Bynum has been out since early February with knee issues and has sought treatment.
His knee injuries are nothing new and since January he has been passed around with a large salary and the hope he'll recover.
Since January he was traded to the Bulls from Cleveland for only one day then sent to the Pacers so Chicago could save salary money.
His current contract for the rest of the year is for $1 million and, despite the Pacers leading the conference and destined for a good playoff run, it is unlikely he will return this season.
Knee injuries are a common occurrence for Bynum who has been working with specialist trainers to strengthen them but has so far only made two appearances, both in March, but hasn't played at all this week.
If you can sense retirement then you're probably on to a trick although with the playoffs looming, he has time to get some strength back and make some impact appearances.
