Bynum has reportedly hired new representation and will attempt an NBA comeback, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bynum has been out of the league for five years now, but is still only 30 years old, so there's certainly a chance he fields some interest across the NBA. The big man played more than 60 games just twice across eight seasons in the league due to injuries, so that will likely still be a concern despite the time off. Look for Bynum to potentially find a landing spot during training camp, but he's far from guaranteed a roster spot to open the 2018-19 campaign. In his best season in 2011-12 with the Lakers, Bynum averaged 18.7 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks across 35.2 minutes.

Andrew Bynum (knee) could sit out all of the 2014-15 season.

He is looking into the Regenokine Program made famous by guys like Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez. Bynum was completely out of shape last season and his career obviously wouldn't last with the way it's going right now. If the rest goes well, he could wind up back with Phil Jackson for the 2015-16 season.

The Knicks could go after Andrew Bynum (knee) this offseason, according to ESPN NY.

The reasoning is that Phil Jackson coached Bynum while his knees actually were able to move him up and down a basketball court. The Knicks need a big man behind Tyson Chandler, but this is probably not the solution.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will miss the remainder of the playoffs.

"We want to thank Andrew and our medical staff for trying to get the issues with his knee resolved," said Pacers president Larry Bird. "We wish him the best in the future." Injuries continue to decimate Bynum, who appeared in only two games for the Pacers after playing in 24 games for the Cavaliers. He may have a hard time finding guaranteed money as a free agent this summer.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will not play against the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs.

This isn't a surprise and he hasn't seen game action since Mar. 15. Bynum played in just two games since the Pacers brought him on board and they've obviously swung and missed here. The team hasn't been getting much out of their center spot, so Ian Mahinmi could be an X-factor for their success in the postseason.

Andrew Bynum (right knee) remains out indefinitely.

Bynum played two games with the Pacers before swelling and soreness in his knee shut him down, and it's possible that he won't step on the court until the playoffs. "We do hope he's going to be back," said coach Frank Vogel. "He's a heck of a basketball player. He's not only a big man, but a talented, physical presence." Ian Mahinmi's role backing up Roy Hibbert is safe for now.

The Pacers confirmed on Friday that Andrew Bynum (right knee) will be out indefinitely.

He has continued swelling and soreness in his knee, which comes as no surprise. Coach Frank Vogel said he knew what his team signed up for when they picked up Bynum and chances are they had their expectations very low. Ian Mahinmi will continue to serve as the backup center. There's a good chance we won't see Bynum on the court the rest of the season.

Andrew Bynum (knee) is expected to be out "a while" according to coach Frank Vogel.

Bynum experienced some swelling in his surgically-repaired right knee over the weekend and had to have his knee drained on Monday. "He played in the Detroit game, aggravated a previous condition and had some swelling in there," Vogel said. "He's going to be out for a little while." Bynum has looked good in the two games that he's played for the Pacers, but he can't stay healthy enough to be worth owning in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues at the moment.

Andrew Bynum had his right knee drained on Monday and is concerned at how much fluid was removed.

Things are not going well with Bynum's knee right now and we're still awaiting the results of an MRI. He won't travel to New York for Wednesday's game, and it would be a surprise to see him play at any time in the next week.

Andrew Bynum (knee) will not play against the Sixers on Monday night.

There's no word in the severity of the swelling and he should be considered questionable for Wednesday vs. the Knicks. Bynum isn't going to be 100 percent any time soon and he has basically no fantasy value.
