Andrew Bynum is still unsure of his return.credit: delcotimes.com There has been a lot of bad news surrounding the two players that many consider to be the best two centers in the league, Andrew Bynum and Dwight Howard. Howard has battled injuries while his Lakers have struggled, and Bynum has yet to see the floor for the 76ers. Here we are in February, and Andrew Bynum is still unsure about when he will be able to return. And it doesn’t look good. Via Philly.com: Bynum seemed optimistic about the fact that he had been on the court Saturday and Sunday, getting in workouts up to 2 hours. He said in those sessions he was able to do some defensive slides, dunk the ball, run up and down the court and perform post up moves. Then a bit later, he admitted that the pain was too severe in the left knee to allow any optimism or a time frame as to when he may be back. “I started to do basketball work,” he said. “I think I worked out for 2 days on the court and then I had a lot of pain so we backed down a little bit (Monday). Probably get on the Alter G (anti gravity machine) tomorrow (Tuesday) and we’ll just progress as much as we can. I’m not sure (about debuting this month), it’s all going to depend on if we get a setback or not. Right now things are going well, I’m losing weight and I’m staying on the court as long as I can, so that’s good.” And then came the bad. “I’m not very optimistic,” Bynum admitted. “When I get on the court, that’s when I want to be ready. I’m trying as hard as I can. It would suck to play through pain but sometimes you have to. Not actually (going through) contact. I went through some drills with teammates and stuff but no contact.” If you’re a 76ers fan, you have to start  thinking about the possibility of never seeing Andrew Bynum in a 76ers uniform. He has not stepped on the floor yet this season, and is on schedule to be a free agent at the end of the year. Bynum has not given assurance that he will re-sign, and it’s possible that the 76ers might not even want him back at the price that he’ll demand. When healthy, Andrew Bynum is widely regarded as one of the top two centers in the league. Between his injuries and maturity issues, however, Philadelphia knew they were taking a risk when they acquired him from Los Angeles. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Andrew Bynum Still Not Sure About Return appeared first on Pass The Pill.
