Andrew Bynum, Nazr Mohammed

BOSTON (AFP) – Cleveland have suspended center Andrew Bynum indefinitely for conduct detrimental to the team, Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant announced Saturday.

Bynum has averaged 8.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.2 blocked shots over 24 games in his first season with the Cavaliers. The team did not reveal details of what Bynum had done to incur the punishment, but he did not travel with the Cavaliers to their Saturday game at Boston and has been banished from all team activities, not just games.

Bynum, 26, missed the 2012-13 season due to knee problems. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on both knees last March, seven months after Philadelphia obtained Bynum from the Lakers.
