ANDREW BYNUM ON INJURED LEFT KNEE: "THIS IS SOMETHING I HAVE TO GET USED TO"
The injured center said Tuesday, after the team's practice at PCOM, that the pain he's experiencing in his left knee did not keep him from an intense, 80-minute workout. He said it's something he'll just have to learn how to deal with.
Also, Bynum said he has not considered missing the entire season.
“After you play in this league for quite some time, I think you just wind up getting used to things and this is something I have to get used to,” Bynum said. “It's been worse than now, but it's getting better. I was able to do my entire workout today. It was painful, but I could push through it. It didn't linger like it did in the past.”
Bynum said returning to the court is more to do with tolerating pain than removing it. He said he has an appointment Wednesday with Dr. Jonathan Glashow, the orthopaedic surgeon in New York City who operated on Jason Richardson.
“I'll see Glashow tomorrow,” Bynum said. “Dr. Glashow, who's working with J-Rich right now. Hopefully – he says he's got some new software or something. It shows what's going on. Just waiting to see what he says.”
