Scott Agness, who covers the Pacers for Pacers.com, tweeted the following, confirming Bynum's status.
Andrew Bynum ruled out for Round 1 pic.twitter.com/BWJe70TLqtThe Pacers took a chance on Bynum to add some quality minutes in the middle behind Roy Hibbert. Since Bynum has played in only two games since acquired by the Pacers, they obviously struck out on his signing. Expect Ian Mahinmi, who averaged 3.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game during the regular season, to see more significant time in the playoffs backing up Hibbert.
