The Philadelphia 76ers say prized offseason acquisition Andrew Bynum will be out at least another five weeks and probably longer because of continuing complications with his right knee.

It is the third time since September the Sixers have pushed back Bynum's return date.



Bynum had a fresh MRI and a saw his personal knee specialist in New York last week. The Sixers are now hoping he will be cleared to return to basketball activities by Dec. 10.

But the team said Bynum would then need an additional one to four weeks of training and conditioning, which means his anticipated Sixers debut may be on hold until January.

The Sixers are off to a 4-2 start without Bynum and have also been without Jason Richardson because of an ankle injury for the past five games. Richardson was the other player Philadelphia received in the Bynum trade.

"We know the Sixers fans are eager to see Andrew Bynum play and shine," Sixers general manager Tony DiLeo said in a statement. "We also know no one is more eager to see Andrew play for the Sixers than Andrew himself. He fully realizes the key contribution he can make to the team. Hopefully, that day is coming soon."

The "hopefully" part is telling. It has become clear that while the team has been publicly optimistic and patient, it simply is not sure when the franchise center will get into a game.

The Sixers have already faced some criticism for trading away All-Star Andre Iguodala, young prospects Nikola Vucevic and Moe Harkless and a future first-round pick to get Bynum.
The decision is further complicated because Bynum, who's had surgeries on both knees and just turned 25, is in the final year of his contract.

The team was hoping Bynum would continue to play at an All-Star level and prove he was healthy enough to be worth a long-term deal. With what the Sixers gave up to acquire Bynum, the team is already deeply invested in him.

Bynum announced last May, while he was still a member of the Los Angeles Lakers, that he was going to Germany in September for the popular Orthokine blood-spinning treatment. He waited until then, so the plan went, so the effects of the treatment could be maximized for the start of training camp in October.
Instead, however, the Sixers announced before training camp that Bynum needed to delay his return to allow the effects of the Orthokine treatment to work.


The bone bruise has since further complicated matters, causing the team to push the return date from training camp to the regular season and now possibly to midseason.


The Sixers did say they were optimistic because Bynum has been cleared for low-impact exercise and that by next week he may be able to start work on an underwater treadmill.

That is great news for 76ers fans, they must be jumping for joy, AB4SURE aka pointguard11 must of explained to 76er fans on their forums that its all good because Bynum will come back stronger than ever and way better than Howard because Howard has no post moves and doesn't play well in the post like Bynum even though Bynum hasn't played since last year.

The most irritating Laker fans were Bynum homers, which probably made me dislike Bynum more than I really did. But, this is just sad.

Hopefully he gets to a point in which he can manage his knees without missing any time. We thought that was the case last season, but it apparently wasn't.

Like I said before, I'm really starting to wonder if him delaying his knee procedure until September is causing him not to be back by now. If so, he really needs to be more proactive when he knee treatments. I still remember back in 2010 when he delayed his knee surgery and it caused him to miss more time than if he had gotten it earlier.

That happened to a lot of us, I mean, wasn't a fan of Bynum but I still rooted for him, after criticizing him a couple
times I picked up this crab of a troll like an std, his name was AB4SURE, and he made me hate Bynum and
wish nothing but the worst for him.

Constantly bashing Kobe anytime he could and praising Bynum for everything.

I hope Bynum gets traded to Portland, we all know what happens to bigs with talent there.

Sixers fans are so mad on another site, they are making up the most ignorant names you can imagine for him.

Andrew Bye Dumb
Andrew Broke'um
Andrew Cry Bum
Andrew CANSUCKITnum

LOL, I was cracking up. The blogger keeps deleting their posts, though...probably doesn't want all of the negativity out there, haha.

Not really surprised. So far so good we are doing when it came to the Howard trade.

Kind of feel bad for him, but in the same time, I was really never a big fan of his.
