Andrew received a fresh MRI and was seen again by Dr. Altchek this past week on Monday, November 5.

At that evaluation, Dr. Altcheck extended Andrew's return date for a second time by an additional three weeks. However, in what the Sixers believe is an optimistic sign, Dr. Altchek also indicated that Andrew could immediately resume low impact exercise. Low impact exercise for a period of two weeks is to be followed by three weeks of conditioning on an anti-gravity treadmill. The doctors and the team will be closely watching how Bynum's knee responds during this five week regimen. Upon successful completion, Bynum is expected to be able to resume normal basketball activity.

If the current prognosis holds unchanged, Bynum would be cleared to resume normal basketball activity by approximately December 10. In addition, the team estimates that Bynum in turn will need an additional 1-4 weeks thereafter for conditioning, training and practice before being able to resume game play with significant minutes.

they basically traded iggy for someone that could end up being a 3 month rental.

More like Iggy, Nikolas, Harkless and a 1st rounder.

Yeah at the time I was pretty frustrated that we weren't getting Bynum back, but ever since he's been traded it's all been bad news for him.

I'm so glad this injury prone moron is not a Laker anymore. I feel bad for Philly fans. First the Eagles now this.

Big bummer no doubt. Hoping we can stay above water until he's ready. Not too optimistic however that he'll be able to remain healthy. :sigh:

Nothing changes for the Sixers. We keep plugging along until he comes back. I'm glad they're committed to keeping him out until he is absolutely 100% healthy with no question about it.

Is this a bit of a bummer? Yes, of course. It'd be awesome to see Bynum out there sooner. I'm dying to see him play! It's just good to have some clarity on the situation with some real target dates now, rather then the FO keeping it a secret the whole time.

I would still do the trade 10 times out of 10 times...I would also do the trade if I know he would miss 2 months. Not even Joking either

Bynum will never be fully healthy. Sucks for Philly.

This is sad to hear.. I'm pulling for him though, I hope he comes back and shows his strengths to the Sixers..

Tough break for Bynum and the 6ers. I honestly can't say he's a max player for sure now? It seems like Bynum is so high maintenance physically?

Whoever signs this guy to a long term deal need to have a top class training staff in place and also make sure they get him on some sort of plan to keep this guy's knees healthy. And, with Bynum, I think he hasn't been quite as discliplined as far as being in shape and healthy. He has to realize that, in order to play, he needs to do more than the average player to stay healthy.

hes not seriously injured. its more precautionary then anything. we want to extend him so why rush him when its better for him to be 100%. Schedule is soft right now and we are winning games so its not that big of an issue right now.

Lakers are blessed Bynum had 1 healthy season to showcase him for.

Sixers fans are going to love Bynum when he plays at full strength, he just needs to learn to anticipate the double team and pass out quickly..

WTF happened? Jeez... I thought he knee was fine... I mean, he didn't even get an injury.... I feel so bad for Philly fans right now... and for Bynum too...

6ers should get ample time to evaluate him and his health this year. If he shows up and does well he's guaranteed a max deal.

Personally, I see big men and knee problems, and I dont even bother. His position and talent land him a max deal somewhere.

The overreaction in this thread is beyond hilarious. Philly giving up Iggy, big deal at this point. They haven't and won't miss him. Bynum will play this season, some of you are acting like he will never play again. Bynum is in a contract year so anything they get out of him will be a bonus and the Sixers aren't obligated to sign him or even sign him to a big contract. It's not like the Sixers signed him to a 8 year contract and are stuck with him.

I agree completely with the bolded.

I feel bad for Philly fans, but as a Wolves fan, I am struggling to find any serious sympathy for injuries any team might be having. It sucks being machine gunned by injuries, and hopefully Philly, like Minny, can stay afloat until their star player(s) come back.

Just sucks how things have turned out for him. Jimbaco finally made the right choice to get rid of him from LA though.

Hopefully for Bynum and Philly it's a precautionary thing. Philly's doing pretty fine without him too.

injury issues aside, Dwight has already shown me that he's a far more effective big man, on offense and on defense, than Bynum ever was.

Dwight is far more reliable and athletic, and scores automatically and with authority when he gets the ball down low.

Everyone who was arguing that Bynum was a better offensive player, a better scorer with better "touch" was just flat out wrong.

Hey, I liked Bynum on the Lakers, but having Dwight on the team is soooooooo much better.

Bynum is still worth the risk for most teams, including the sixers.

:yawn:

Come on, everybody and their mothers knew he is been a problem with this matter since frigging high school days.
NO surprise at all.


mmmm Dont the SUNS have capspace this summer? maybe their magical training staff can have him been afloat of injuries for a while, they did a great job on Hill.

All that matters is being in the playoffs fully healthy. The sixers will be in the playoffs, now all they need is the healthy part.

I could see why this would matter if they weren't a lock for the playoffs, but they are, and Bynum missing games now won't mean much come playoffs.

Did he go to Germany this summer and get the same surgery as Kobe?

It sucks because two freak injuries caused by his teammates cost him the chance to be one of the best big man in his generation. Bynum has all the tools, skills, and talent, but lacks the drive and determination to be great.

Sssmush
11-13-2012, 06:27 AM
Honestly, it would be great to see Bynum rise up and play at a high level, maybe lead the Sixers past the Heat into the Finals or something. I'd be rooting for him.

Just saying that... all those who were comparing him to Dwight were so wrong. Dwight is just so much more reliable athletic and skillwise
