Head-coach Phil Jackson stated the other day that Bynum could miss the first three to four games of the season, but today's news reports otherwise.
Doctors have given Bynum a four-week timetable before he can get back onto the court for full workouts.
At the age of 23, the young center has already partially dislocated his kneecap, torn his medial collateral ligament in his right knee, and is now rehabbing his right knee after having surgery due to a tear in his meniscus.
Bynum is a top center in the league when healthy, but has failed to prove durable throughout his five year career.
