andrew bynumAndrew Bynum has been suspended indefinitely by the Cleveland Cavaliers for detrimental conduct, the team reported early Saturday:

Bynum did not travel with the team to Boston last night for the team’s game this afternoon at 1:00 p.m. vs. the Celtics and has been excused from all team activities indefinitely. His status will be updated as appropriate.

Bynum’s play has been up and down this season with the Cavs after missing the entire 2012-2013 season as a member of the Sixers. He has frequently been benched in fourth quarters by Cavs head coach Mike Brown, who Bynum had conduct issues with when both were with the Los Angeles Lakers for the 2011-2012 season.

Yahoo Sports Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Bynum has lost interest in basketball, echoing sentiments that were reported by LTSB late in 2012.

Bynum himself, now 26, even hinted that he has had thoughts of retiring due to the constant pain he experiences in his surgically repaired knees.

For the season, Bynum has averaged 8.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks in 20 minutes per game. Bynum signed an incentive-laced, two-year deal worth up to $24 million with the Cavs that past summer.
