Without even seeing the MRI, the preliminary word is that Andrew Bynum will be out until March:
The preliminary diagnosis is that Bynum suffered a sprained right knee against Memphis Saturday and will miss the next six weeks. But it could be longer, and the damage could be more serious, pending results of an MRI taken yesterday.
We've heard the excuses a million times before. And if the Celtics beat the Lakers without Bynum, then we'll hear them again. But if you really have the best TEAM… you'll be able to overcome injuries. The Celtics overcame no KG to beat the hottest team in the league and withstand a low-post barrage from Al Jefferson. That's because Paul Pierce stepped up.
I hope Bynum comes back sooner rather than later. I don't want to hear that excuse when I get back from the parade.
