76ers Hope Andrew Bynum Is The Answer
They do, of course, but for now Andrew Bynum is a fantasy, a dream of what could be. Bynum has not played a minute for Philly this season, his ailing knees keeping him in street clothes. Bynum met with reporters again on Monday night, offering few specifics on when he will return. He won’t be back before the All-Star break. He said he is making “baby steps” and “gradually increasing” his workload, but can’t say when he expects to return to practice.
“I talked about [coming back before the All-Star break], but to me it doesn’t really matter when I come back,” Bynum said. “I think giving myself the extra week of training would be better than trying to come back before that.”
Said Thaddeus Young, “We’re very anxious. We have been waiting all season long for the big fella to show us what he has got. We feel once he gets back it’s going to be much easier for us to win games. We’re just going to have to hold the fort down until he comes back.”
