Celtics' Wilcox sits out practice; Sixers' Bynum to miss time

WALTHAM -- News surfaced out of Philadelphia 76ers camp today that their new big man Andrew Bynum is going to be shut down for three weeks as he is still feeling some discomfort after offseason knee surgery.

The Celtics have been fortunate to not have any serious injury news like this already in camp.

Aside from Avery Bradley's offseason surgery, and the expected news that he would miss some time in the beginning of the season, the Celtics appear relatively healthy going forward.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers did say that Chris Wilcox would sit out Monday's practice, although he didn't sound concerned.

"Chris is going to sit out today; took a pretty good hit," Rivers said. "Theres no other reason than that."

It's unclear what exactly is bothering Wilcox, but we'll keep an eye on him this week.

As for Bynum, here's a brief report from the Sixers official website:
Today, the Sixers announced that center Andrew Bynum will be withheld from basketball activities for the next 21 days in order to maximize the therapeutic effects of the non-invasive Orthokine therapy that both of his knees underwent last month.He was recently examined by Dr. Jack McPhilemy of Main Line Health and diagnosed with a bone bruise of the medial femoral chondyle on his right knee.

Crowder, who isn't shy on social media, liked the series of tweets, perhaps saving them as motivation for later.

Crowder had a couple noteworthy moments on Twitter this past season. The first was when he fired back at Celtics fans after the TD Garden cheered for Jazz forward Gordon Hayward. He also exchanged comments with Devin Booker after the Suns guard's 70-point game against the Celtics
