CLEVELAND, Ohio — After watching centerAndrew Bynum work out hard in three-on-three competition the past few days, Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said Thursday night he thinks Bynum is close to being able to practice.

However, asked if Bynum might be able to play in one of the Cavs' four remaining preseason games, Brown said: "I don't know. We're not going to rush him.''

Bynum missed all of last season with knee issues after being traded from the Los Angeles Lakers to the Philadelphia 76ers. He signed a two-year free-agent contract with the Cavs this summer and although he has worked diligently since then, he has not yet been cleared to practice five-on-five full court.

"He looks good,'' Brown said of the workouts he has seen. "We just want to make sure that we're cautious with this thing and we're handling it the right way. Andrew has done a great job. We're excited about his progress and where he's at.''

The Cavs have been careful not to put any sort of timetable on Bynum's return, but the coach delivered what is no doubt good news to the team and its fans on Thursday when he said, "This is just my opinion: I think he's close.''

I'm sure a lot of us are. It's been such a long time that you can't help, but be somewhat curious. Same with Oden, though perhaps not as much since he was never a Laker.

Hopefully Bynum comes back back strong... I could care less for that bum Oden.

It was with Mike Brown that Bynum had his all-star season so obviously he knows how to use him.

Bynum's problems are always said to be between his ears, it is, but not to the extent that people think it is.

Not as bad as someone like Cousins.

 

I think Bynum will do fine.  If he's healthy, as a second option he's a potential 20/12 guy, that's the thing IF he's healthy. 

And with a point guard like Kyrie if Bynum is healthy the Cavs WILL make the playoffs and will be a dark horse..

Between Bynum's uncertainty and now reports of Bennett's conditioning due to unknown sleep apnea and asthma, well not a good set up before the actual season begins.

Ha! Impossible to recover from. He was a 20/10 guy. 20 minutes icing down after 10 minutes playing

^ Well considering he's in the East now, sadly, he'll only get a very few couple opportunities.

Andrew Bynum Down To 285 Pounds
 
Bynum is down to his “game weight,” a league source said Thursday, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to do so. Bynum has hit every milestone the team has set before him without any setbacks, including participating in three-on-three half-court scrimmages with teammates during Wednesday’s abbreviated practice…

Again if Bynum stays healthy, as well as Kyrie and Varajeao and Clark the Cavs are gonna be a problem for any team in the East.

How weird is it to read that a source reporting on an athlete being paid 12 mill is at his playing weight after recently fleecing philly of 16 mill cant be quoted.

Bynum checked out way too often in the 2012 playoffs, particularly on D.  If he was the so called best C what happened to him when he was most needed?
