BYNUM STILL FAR FROM RETURNING TO THE COURTS
Wed, 12 Dec 2012 01:30 AM EST

Andrew Bynum still has pain in his left knee which has kept him from making his debut with the 76ers.

Bynum is in pain when he walks or attempts even light physical activity, excepting swimming. He had been recovering from a bone bruise in his right knee and injured his left knee while bowling last month.

The 7-foot center will have his knees examined again Dec. 20th and didn’t know if he’d need an MRI.

“Worst case scenario, it’s another month,” he revealed Monday night. “Best case scenario, I can ramp it up.”

Bynum hasn’t or practiced or played for the Sixers since he was acquired in the offseason from the L.A Lakers. Bynum announced his right knee has improved to the point at he could been able to play. He was again listed as inactive for Philadelphia’s game against Detroit with “bilateral bone bruises.”
“There’s nothing I’m able to do about it,” he revealed. “It’s arthritis arthritis in the knees. Cartilage is missing. That’s not going to regrow itself. Maybe in the future, next 3 to 5 years, there could be something out there that really does help. At the moment, it’s kind of a waiting game.”

Bynum, 25, is in the last year of his contract and could sign a 5-year deal worth a bit more than $100 million in the offseason, if he’s healthy. But his doubtful standing may be costing the All-Star millions. Baseball scores

Bynum won two NBA titles in 7 seasons with the Lakers. The 76ers were hoping he could help them become one of the league’s elite teams.

He has tried not to think about the fact he would never play for the Sixers.

“I actually think I will be fine,” he revealed. “If my left knee gets better, and feels like my right, I could be playing.”

Bynum declared in May, while still a member of the Lakers, that he was going to Germany in September for the Orthokine blood-spinning treatment in his knees that other pro athletes have sought. The Sixers pronounced before training camp that Bynum wanted to delay his return to allow the effects of the Orthokine treatment to work.

The bone bruise in his right knee caused the Philadelphia 76ers to push the return date from training camp to the regular season and now possibly to midseason.

But the Sixers are still looking long-term with Bynum, who’s in the last year of his agreement.

Bynum said the 76ers haven’t really put pressure on him to return.

“I think initially,” he said, “but then I realized more of the pressure was coming from myself. I just had to kind of relax a little bit and let this time pass.”

If Bynum is cleared to resume basketball activity on the 20th, he announced he wouldn’t require much time before he played in a game. He’s become a devoted swimmer and credited that to keeping him in shape. It is one of the few activities that doesn’t cause Bynum discomfort.

“It’s not worsening. It’s just continuous pain,” he claimed. “I just think the bone bruise has to fix. It’s a mirror image of my right knee. My right knee took 4 months. I think we’re a bit ahead of the curve.”
