Sixers Balls: Make that “Lube Job” number two for Bynum. Or is it the third time?


I am trying to remember. I am pretty sure this is the second time for Bynum. Just in case you missed it, Bynum had another procedure done today. He went up to the NYC to have Synvisc injections in each knee. The Sixers say it’s not a set back and that he will return to basketball activity next week.

What are Synvisc injections? Since I love pictures so much here are pictures of what Synvisc actually does…

In knees with osteoarthritis, the joint fluid (called synovial fluid) can break down and not provide the cushioning your knee needs.

Synvisc-One supplements your knee joint fluid to relieve the pain and improve the knee joint’s natural shock absorbing abilities. So in regular terms, LUBE JOB! The lube is basically a cushion. Man, lube works for just about everything.
So what does Evan Turner have to say about Bynum coming back? This is what he said in an interview with WIP’s Michael Barkann and Ike Reese…

“[Bynum coming back is] going to be cool. Definitely, once he gets back, he’s definitely going to help,” “Obviously the best big in the game right now and it’s going to definitely help us a lot. Hopefully we make the playoffs, it’s going to help us even more in the playoffs.” via CBSPHILLY

Sounds like Turner thinks he will be back very soon. Turner:

“I don’t think [he’s coming back] tomorrow. It’s like the groundhog. You see his shadow and then Spring is coming, you know” via CBSPHILLY

Forget it. I guess he won’t be back until March. This dude…
