Andrew Bynum's career in Philadelphia has yet to take off.  After being involved in the massive blockbuster trade that sent him to the 76ers and Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic to the Los Angeles Lakers, Bynum has yet to play a game for the Sixers.  He has been rehabbing a bone bruise and swelling in his right knee.  Now, he has the same issue with his left knee.Bynum will have to take a step back in his conditioning.  He will need to stay off the eliptical and move back to the pool for conditioning to lower the impact on his knees says Dei Lynam of CSN Philly.  Bynum wants to keep on the timetable of returning to practice December 10th, but that does not seem possible now.  He went from one bad knee to two.  Both need rehab.“I'm doing alright, I had a little bit of a setback just working through some issues with the right knee, kind of mirroring my left knee,” Bynum said. “I don't know what's going on. The doctors are saying to wait, I guess because of the cartilage. They're not giving me anything real definite. I just have to wait for the cartilage to get stronger. It's in both knees. Same spot, both knees."Bynum's injury history is well-documented.  However, in his final season with the Lakers last year, he played in all 60 of the team's games.  He also saw increased productions.  Unfortunately, the healthy version of Bynum has yet to show up in Philly.Bynum has averaged 11.7 points per game in his career and 7.8 rebound per game.  Last season, while healthy, Bynum averaged 18.7 points per game and 11.8 rebounds per game.  Philadelphia is hoping to get that level of production from him when Bynum returns to the court.  They just don't know when that will be.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 ?
