NBA Playoffs 2014: Andrew Bynum ruled out of Round 1 against Hawks

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Indiana Pacers center Andrew Bynum has been declared out for Round 1 of the playoffs by head coach Frank Vogel.

When the Atlanta Hawks take on the Indiana Pacers in Round 1 of the NBA Playoffs they won't have to contend with center Andrew Bynum who was declared out for the series today by head coach Frank Vogel. He went on to say that there is still a chance that Bynum plays if the Pacers advance in the playoffs.

Bynum initially signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers prior to the season after being pursued by several teams including the Atlanta Hawks. His time in Cleveland was short as the Cavaliers grew tired of him quickly and shipped him to Chicago in the Luol Deng trade. The Bulls waived Bynum upon arrival and he ended up signing with the Pacers for whom he played two games before going on the shelf with more knee issues.

At this point we can't be sure what Bynum even has left in the tank but its good news for the Hawks that they won't have to contend with another big 7-footer off the bench. Ian Mahinmi figures to get the majority of back up minutes behind starter Roy Hibbert.
