When 76ers coach Doug Collins and his team centerpiece, Andrew Bynum, had a recent conversation, the center told Collins that if they were in the regular season, he would be able to play right now.
But the reality is that they are not in the regular season and Bynum is scheduled to have further injections in both knees Monday to help lubricate the joints and better prepare them for the regular season.
Bynum will receive an injection of Synvisc-One. Used for the treatment of osteoarthritis, it is a natural substance that lubricates and cushions the joints. It is believed to provide up to six months of protection. According to his agent, Bynum will receive another injection at the all-star break.
The plan for Bynum’s return to the court is for three days of practice beginning Oct. 24. Collins plans on a break for the Sixers on Oct. 27 and then practice the next three days before the team opens the season at home against Denver on Oct. 31.
