Andrew Bynum finally has had surgery on the knee he dragged through the NBA playoffs last season.
The surgery took place on Wednesday and the team termed it the standard “successful.” As Hoopsworld’s Eric Pincus notes, any surgery you wake up from is successful, so Bynum passed that test.
Bynum had a torn meniscus, suffered against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round. He played through it the rest of the way, having his knee drained several times. But he was never right. Still, he got a ring.
He’s supposed to be ready to go by training camp at the end of September. It’s a deadline even the traditionally slow-healing Bynum should hit easily, this was not a major operation. And hopefully his knees and body will hold up for a full season this time around.
