As we all know, the Philadelphia 76ers want to take every precautionary step possible for their newest Sixer Andrew Bynum. The young center has a bone bruise on his right knee, and will take his time getting back into the lineup.
The Sixers have announced, per a press release that Bynum has started light condition. The conditioning is considered low impact condition, which he will then be re-evaluated on a regular basis by the medical personnel.
General manager Tony DiLeo had this to say about Andrew Byum and the new look Sixers:
“With the team’s intriguing play in the pre-season leading to a 6-1 pre-season record, we are confident that the 76ers will be an exciting, talented and highly competitive team from day one. When Andrew Bynum rejoins for game play, that will take an already strong team to an even higher level.”
The Sixers start their regular season tomorrow night at the Wells Fargo Center as they tip-off against Andre Iguodala and the Denver Nuggets at 7:00pm.
