Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum has reportedly done more damage to his knee while bowling, according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. Bynum revealed on Friday night that he had suffered a setback in his left knee, but didn’t say what it was related to.

Bynum received Orthokine therapy injections in both of his knees in September, a procedure he had to travel to Germany to have. He’s since received lubricant injections. He was originally slated to return to the court in January, but this new development may throw his schedule off.

Bynum, who was traded to the 76ers in the offseason from the Los Angeles Lakers, has yet to practice with the team, let alone play in a game. Over his seven-year NBA career, he has averaged 11.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. However, last year he averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game, causing many to think that he was finally beginning to reach his potential.
