Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum will receive a Synvisc injection into his right knee Friday, according to the Los Angeles Lakers’ official blog.
The injection, described as a “normal and continuing treatment to maintain (his) knee’s health,” is intended to lubricate his knee.
Bynum has suffered multiple knee injuries throughout his career and has been forced to undergo multiple surgeries. As a result, the seven-footer has not played more than 65 games in a season cine 2006-07 when he was 19-years-old.
In 30 games this season, Bynum is averaging career highs in points, rebounds, and minutes played.
