After the Sixers released a statement earlier this week projecting Andrew Bynum to resume basketball activities by December 10th, the All-Star center told reporters Friday that that he has now suffered a “setback” with his left knee which he says has “cartilage damage“.
Bynum announces “setback” with swelling in both knees. Still targeting mid-December to return to practice. Then 1-4 weeks until [he can play in a] game. Bynum says it’s an issue w cartilage in both knees, but not degradation. Says no procedure will help. Just time.
GM Tony DiLeo says timetable for Bynum’s return won’t change, but team will reevaluate his knees mid-Dec. Was expected back mid-December.
