NY, NY, United States (4E Sports) – Injury-plagued big man, Andrew Bynum, will undergo Regenokine knee therapy procedure and is likely to miss the 2014-2015 season.

Bynum’s agent, David Lee, released the information about the medical procedure with the New York Post.

According to Lee, the Regenokine Program is not legal in the United States and the 26-year-old center must go to Germany for the therapy.

The procedure uses injections to help grow new cartilage and requires a long rehab period that will wipe out next season for Bynum.

Bynum will be under the care of German doctor Peter Wehling, who has worked with the likes of athletes Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez.

The former all-star is a two-time champion with the Los Angeles Lakers before joining the Philadelphia 76ers, for whom he did not play a single game.

Last season he played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, averaging 8.4 points and 5.3 rebounds.

After a 24-game stint with the Cavaliers, Bynum got traded to the Chicago Bulls but was released immediately.

The Indiana Pacers signed Bynum but he played just two games before sitting out the remainder of the season with knee woes.

According Lee, Phil Jackson is interested on making Bynum a part of the New York Knicks once the big man recovers from the injury.
