Will Bynum has been one of the few bright spots for the Pistons this long season.
Coming off the bench the guard has averaged 9.3 points a game but also has 15 games in which he’s scored more than 15 points per game. This also includes a 23 point output the other night against Portland.
Bynum’s performance and contributions however may be halted due to a hand injury something that may his shutdown for the remainder of the season. (via the Detroit News)
“Every time I get hit, it stings for 30 seconds,” said Bynum, who’s been playing with the pain since January but never missed a game.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see the soon-to-be free agent shut it down if the MRI reveals ligament damage. From his perspective, he’s got to be healthy for the summer when he’s looking for a new contract.
Bynum will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and should receive a nice pay day from whoever chooses to sign him. Obviously that number would suffer a big if he can’t continue playing for the remainder of the year.
