Andrew Bynum is considering sitting out the entire 14-15 NBA season in order to undergo the Regenokine knee therapy procedure.

The non-surgical procedure uses injections to help grow new cartilage, and requires an extra-long rehab.

If Bynum successfully completes the program, he could return in 2015-16, according to his agent David Lee, who said the Knicks potentially would be interested in Bynum.

"If he's healthy, Phil (Jackson) will be interested," Lee told the Post, referring to the Knicks team president who coached Bynum while with the Lakers. "Phil knew how to tap into Andrew. They got along famously."

Joel Embiid Expected To Miss 5-8 Months

Joel Embiid could miss his entire rookie season with the Philadelphia 76ers following surgery on his foot.

"I've seen reported by some 4 to 6 months [for Embiid to be sidelined]," Sam Hinkie said. "I don't know where they came from. That's not the number that I heard from the surgeon himself; it's 5 to 8 months. Guess what our approach will be? We will focus on the health of the player. We've had this discussion before. I don't want that to sound glib, because it's not. It is all that matters, the long-term health of the player. Will we be smart about that? Of course. Will we be thoughtful about that? I hope so. Will we be patient? Yes, yes. We will focus on giving him a chance to be as healthy as he can be, to have the kind of career that he can have. If he can be healthy - and we think there is a very, very good chance - if he can be healthy he can have a very productive NBA career."
