Cleveland Cavaliers’ Andrew Bynum has ‘little, sharp pains’


Cleveland Cavaliers’ Andrew Bynum appeared in a game for the first time since 2011 on October 30 when he scored three points, grabbed three rebounds and blocked two shots while shooting one-of-five from the field in  a 98-94 victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

Bynum scored five points and pulled down three rebounds in a 90-84 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats two days later.

After sitting out of Cleveland’s 89-74 loss to the Indiana Pacers Saturday, the second night of a back-to-back, Bynum had his best game on Monday. He scored 10 points, grabbed four rebounds and blocked three shots in 19 minutes as the Cavaliers held off the Minnesota Timberwolves for a 93-92 victory.

After the game, Bynum said he felt “little, sharp pains” his knee and wasn’t sure if his explosiveness would ever return.

Bynum went on to tell Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the pain was “nothing too bad” and if his explosiveness did not return, he’d rely on footwork and skills instead of athleticism instead.

Bynum and the Cavaliers will be back in action Wednesday when they travel to Milwaukee to take on the Bucks at 8:00 pm EST.
