Yesterday Bynum spoke for the first time in nearly a month regarding his knees. John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that he will have another doctor’s appointment on December 20th that will be telling to when Bynum could make his Sixers debut.
“Bynum is scheduled to see his personal orthopedist, David W. Altchek, on Dec. 20 as he recovers from bone bruises and weakened cartilage in both knees. The center has not practiced or played for the Sixers since they acquired him in August.
For Bynum and the Sixers, the next appointment is crucial.
"Worst-case scenario, it's another month," Bynum said. "Best-case scenario, I can ramp it up."
For now, Bynum does not feel that playing is worth the risk.”
