Maybe this is why Roy Hibbert flourished last night in game 2 against the Washington Wizards.

Andrew Bynum, who appeared in just 2 games for the Pacers after being acquired mid-season, has left the team due to his chronic knee issues. He will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

According to the Indiana Pacers:

The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday center Andrew Bynum will miss the remainder of the NBA Playoffs and will not be with the team.

“We want to thank Andrew and our medical staff for trying to get the issues with his knee resolved,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. “We wish him the best in the future.”
