According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, 76ers center Andrew Bynum will not be available to suit up for the team until January 2013. Bynum’s career has been plagued by knee injuries, which made him a liability for the Lakers who decided to trade the young center.
Ever since he officially became the franchise centerpiece for the Philadelphia 76ers, he has not practiced with the team at all. The injury hindering Andrew Bynum’s first appearance for the team is a bone bruise in his knee. On the other hand, the young center remained optimistic and looked forward to his return and said,
Obviously I’m missing games, but I think I’ll make a full recovery and come back.
The Lakers were hesitant to let go of Andrew Bynum because he can be a dominant force in the paint. On the other hand, his glass knees was one of many factors that the Lakers management probably considered when shipping him out.
When Andrew Bynum does return and plays for the Sixers, he will definitely be a force in the Eastern Conference. There is no true center in the East that could shoot the most ridiculous 3-pointers like Bynum does.
