It’s a pattern that just feels all too familiar for him — the timetable for Andrew Bynum’s debut with the 76ers has been pushed back as he recovers from knee issues.
After a fresh MRI, the Philadelphia 76ers announced Monday that Bynum would not be cleared to be involved with “normal basketball activity” — what you and I call practice — until about December 10. If he can stick to that timetable, it would be at least another week or two (maybe more) before he is ready to enter a game.
So the Sixers could have Bynum back around Christmas
Bynum had gone to Germany this summer to have Orthokine treatment — the blood-spinning knee treatment that Kobe Bryant made famous (Bynum had that done previous years as well). He returned to Philadelphia with a bone bruise in his knee and he did not participate at the start of camp. He had an injection of a synthetic lubricant to help his knee. Then one day he went trough one drill at camp, said he felt “discomfort He has been shut down ever since.
After a strong preseason, the Sixers are 4-2 to start the season without Bynum.
Bynum is a free agent at the end of this season. The Sixers have wanted to re-signed him, but that negotiation is getting more interesting by the day.
