Andrew Bynum Could Miss Start of Regular Season reports that Andrew Bynum could miss the start of the regular season as he recovers from offseason knee surgery.

The Breakdown
The Lakers plan to limit Bynum in training camp. With their deep line up, they can afford to let Bynum sit until he's fully ready. If Bynum were to miss time, Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom would likely see extended minutes, with someone like Theo Ratliff or rookie Derrick Caracter getting some time off the bench.

Due to his injury history, it is going to be a real gamble selecting Bynum on draft day. He's likely going to enter the season injured and it'll be hard to tell when he'll be back. If you do indeed grab him, make sure you have reliable centers on your roster in case Bynum goes down with another long term injury.
