There are a lot of changes in Philadelphia, but Andrew Bynum is at the hub of them all.

But so far this season, while the Sixers have spirited practices with players fighting for positions and minutes, Bynum has been on the sideline. He ended up with a bone bruise from the knee procedure he had done in Germany (the Orthokine/Kobe treatment) and the Sixers are being cautious bringing him in.

But he says he’s getting better. From

“I feel pretty good and I am definitely getting better,” Bynum said. “I just really have been trying to get down the offense because it is brand new….

“I think if all the beans were on the table, I would be out there,” Bynum said, to help define the status of his injury.”

Bynum said all the right things about wanting to be on the floor with his teammates. Expect to see him in practice and a couple of preseason games the final weeks before the season. Which has always been the schedule.

The Sixers have big plans this season and they do not really involve games in mid-October. So they can be patient.

    He’s always been a slow starter anyway. Better to have him as close to 100% as possible before burdening him with the minutes he’ll have to play to be “the man,” like he wants.

    Ah yes, the enigma that is Andrew Bynum. Enjoy sixer fans. This is merely the first of what is certain to be many times you ask yourself “how the hell do you get hurt doing that”? We loved him here in L.A., don’t get me wrong. It’s just that the guy is all over the board. You hold your breath every time he sneezes that he won’t pull a muscle.

    Dude can’t even get treatment without being injured.
