Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum has yet to play in a game this season after undergoing surgery. That may change, as Bynum seems to be doing well during his rehab. Christopher from the Sixers Dish reports on a conversation with the center.Still targeting the All-Star break for debut?“I think right after the All-Star break, in my mind.” Practice by the end of the week?“I have no idea. It'll be up to the doctors at that point.”How are you feeling?“Baby steps. Still no slides, but I dunked yesterday. I was happy to know I could still do that, which is good. Just taking it really, really slow.” Been elevating much?“Gradually increasing. We did sprints today. That's the next step – doing sprints, next slides.” Are you where you thought you'd be at this point?“I'm a little bit farther ahead. I honestly believe that. Earlier, before I started getting better, I thought I'd have to play through a lot of pain, but the pain is subsiding a bit, which is good.”The above were just some of the questions asked to Bynum with his respective responses. His Sixers debut looks to be something fans will be able to witness soon according to what Bynum has said. The All-Star Weekend is on February 16th - 17th, so he has around three weeks before he plays in his potential debut. When asked if he might come back earlier and then use the All-Star week as a break, Bynum said that it would be better to take the extra week of training rather than return earlier than he had too.Bynum's return will play a big role. With his interior dominance, he could help the Sixers in rebounding (23rd in the NBA) and scoring in the paint (25th in the NBA).Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
