New Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum may have hurt his knees bowling.

The team fears that the center, who was acquired this summer in the Dwight Howard mega deal, has done additional damage to his knees bowling recently. The 76ers hoped he was their franchise center, but he hasn’t played a game since the summer trade.

He recently told reporters that he suffered a setback and added that he had “weakened cartilage” in both of his knees. The 76ers have linked the setback to his bowling.

“I had a little bit of a setback, and we’re just working through some issues with the right knee,” Bynum said before the Sixers beat the Utah Jazz on Friday night. “I kind of have a mirror thing going on with my left knee. I don’t know what’s going on, but the doctors are saying pretty much that it’s a weakened cartilage state.”

This story is still developing, so more details are forthcoming.
