Will Bynum ‘was basically playing with one hand’


Will Bynum played just six minutes against the Bobcats on Saturday and missed the Timberwolves game Tuesday due to a right hand injury. Bynum, via Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

""I was basically playing with one hand. I get hit on it, I basically can’t move," said Bynum, who averages 9.3 points and 3.4 assists in 18.4 minutes."I can’t shoot for 40 seconds. I have to take a shot during the timeouts just to get the feel back. It was tough, just adjusting to it."He re-injured it in Saturday’s win, diving for a loose ball out of bounds in the first half, and didn’t return. Bynum isn’t sure of the long-term prognosis, saying it could be "one week or two, depending on how long it takes to heal," but certainly must face the prospect of having played his last game of the season."

Bynum playing “basically playing with one hand” is so in-character for him (NC,W.NC). Frankly, I’m surprised he’s missing games for this injury – but that must mean it’s really serious.
