Pacers Links: Pacers to face surging Knicks, Andrew Bynum stays home with 'concerning' knee issues

The Pacers will be without reserve center Andrew Bynum and point guard C.J. Watson when they take on the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night.

The Pacers took to the Fieldhouse rook yesterday for an updated team picture. The good news was that Andrew Bynum was standing upright in the picture.

Bynum was also present at practice and even discussed his latest knee problems which didn't paint a pretty picture.

"This one is a little concerning for me because it caused a lot more fluid," Bynum said. "I haven't had that much fluid in there since like the (2010) Boston Finals in L.A."

So the big fella will stayed in Indy to keep working through his issues and await further information on the MRI test performed on Monday. Meanwhile, the rest of the team is in New York to take on Phil Jackson (I think he's playing, might be confused though) and the Knicks.

Since the mere mention of PJax joining the NYK organization the Knicks have been on a tear, winning six straight games over Milwaukee, Boston, Philly, Cleveland, Utah...wait a minute, well the win at Minnesota is pretty impressive. Actually, those wins are as impressive as any the Pacers have logged of late.

So something's gotta give at MSG tonight!

Along with Bynum missing the game, C.J. Watson isn't expected to play due to the right hamstring tweak he suffered last Friday in Philly.
