NBA Rumors

A few weeks ago, Andrew Bynum was thinking of taking an entire year off from the NBA in order to get his knees right.

Now, well he’s lining up a workout with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to reports. Former Brooklyn Net Andray Blatche, former Portland Trail Blazer and Miami Heat Greg Oden will be joining him in workouts this week for the Clippers.

The New York Post reported earlier this offseason that Bynum was “considering” taking a year off in order to fix his knees with “The Regenokine Program” therapy.

The 7-foot Bynum may not be reuniting with Phil Jackson‘s Knicks or any other team next season because he is seriously contemplating sitting out 2014-15 to undergo the Germany-based knee therapy called “The Regenokine Program” that would require an extra long rehab, according to his agent David Lee. But he could be in play for the following season.

Regenokine is a non-surgical program that promotes new cartilage growth through a series of injections. The FDA still hasn’t approved it in the United States. Bynum is considering doing the program with well-known doctor German doctor Peter Wehling, who worked with Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez. It is similar but not identical to the PRP procedure.

Bynum played 24 games with the Cavaliers before getting released, then signed with the Indiana Pacers before getting released again. He averaged a modest 8.7 points and 5.6 rebounds per game last year in very limited duty.
