After damaging both his knees more while bowling, according to RealGM a renowned surgeon says it would take 4-6 months of rest for the injuries to heal on their own and if he opted for surgery he would be out for the entire year. Bynum’s surgeon was told not to speak to the media.
The Sixers have been silent on the issue, besides saying that there is no timetable on Bynum’s return.
