No, no, silly rabbit. The promising young center who perpetually is sidelined by concerning test results is Greg Oden! Andrew Bynum is the one who comes back with a clean bill of health, then gets nicked up and is expected out three weeks and misses an entire paleolithic era.
Anyway, Bynum's MRI came back this afternoon, and good news: it's negative. Which is the bizarre way of the medical field of telling you something good. Great news! It's negative! Nowhere else does this phenomenon occur. Not like my boss is going to come to me and say "Hey, we checked out a review of all your comments and scored them, great news: it's negative!"
Sorry, got off-track. From ESPN :
Lakers spokesman John Black said the exam -- the first on Bynum's knee since before training camp and scheduled in order to compare how the knee looked then versus now -- showed nothing "abnormal" or "unexpected."
That's good. The last time I had an MRI on my knee they found an entire race of beings living inside who considered me an evil wizard and wouldn't stop with the incessant puns and that was really abnormal.
Phil Jackson finally came up with a possible return date for Bynum, saying he could be available for the December 10th game against the Bulls in Chicago. Which means Bynum will actually be available for the February 27th game against the Thunder. If he feels right.
