If it's bad, Drew really has to be kicking himself for turning down 80 mil to try and get 100 mil, ouch.

Crap, that sounds like surgery vs no surgery or trade vs no trade or extension vs no extension.....I picked him up in 2 leagues this week just in case the news was GOOD and he was suddenly good to play....really hoping the news is good not only for fantasy purposes but also for Bynum and the Sixers....need more competition for the Heat in the East!!!!

Press conference set for 5:30PM EST/2:30PM PST.

Bynum told reporters on December 10th, that "Worst cast scenerio. Another month. Best case scenerio. I can ramp it up."

According to the press conference, he's been cleared for increased activity. Still no timetable for return.

Drew Optimistic About Progress Toward Returning

Drew Optimistic About Progress Toward Returning

Image

POSTED: Monday, January 7, 2013, 3:03 PM

Sixers center Andrew Bynum seemed more optimistic today about his ailing knees than at any other time since it was first announced by the 76ers that he would not participate with the team during training camp.

Here are some of the things he said following practice today regarding the state of his knees:

“It’s definitely moving in a positive direction,” Bynum, who has been out with bone bruises and swelling cartilage, said. “I’m feeling better every day. I’m back to the weights and on the treadmill and I should be running here soon.”

That’s key – that he says he ‘should be running soon. That’s really what this is all about, Bynum getting on the floor. Not riding treadmills or swimming. The next crucial step is getting him on the floor, experiencing impact and playing basketball.

Bynum said of number of positive things. He said that his doctor, David Altchek, told him that ‘whatever is going on with the cartilage is going to wind itself up and I should be back at it pretty soon.’

That might be the most important thing. The swelling is gone in both knees and the cartilage, which was introduced as part of the whole equation right around the time that he injured the left knee bowling, is not bothering him.

Bynum said his right knee is not an issue at all. And he described his left knee as feeling ‘much, much better.’

He didn’t give a timeline. However, both he and the Sixers have backed away from timelines. Remember, we are quickly approaching the middle of Jan. If you recall, this is when both Bynum and the Sixers said – the last time they gave a timeline – that they expected him to return to the floor.

What we also know about Bynum is that the inactivity has him feeling rested. He said that his body feels fresh (as well it should), sort of the way he feels during the summer following a season when his body has recuperated from the rigors of the season.

“I feel the way I feel when the summer comes and my legs are fresh. I feel like that right now,” said Bynum.

He remains leery of a possible setback, nonetheless. Here’s what he said about that:

“It’s possible but right now the doctor has said that it will resolve itself. It’s going to be either 100 percent fine or your knee will swell up and give us signals that there is a problem. But as of right now my knee is fine and I think we are out of the woods with that.”

Oh thank gawd for that photo.....really I was getting too depressed in LD and honestly came here looking for something in Bynum's thread to pick me up. Like he could still be on Lakers and we could be waiting for yet another knee issue return. Or a funny hair shot. :man10: :man10:

Again? When did he ever prove us wrong? Shouldn't he be playing to be able to prove us wrong in the first place? He also has a lot of maturing left to do.

Depending upon who you are...

1) When he became an all-star and a 2nd team all-nba player last season.

2) Oh, and my favorite one...when he became an all-star and a 2nd team All-NBA player, people were making the excuse that Pau "sacrificed his game" so that Bynum could achieve those goals. Nevermind that it was Pau who played like crap during the 2011 playoffs, forcing Bynum into the 2nd option role by necessity. Pau continues his course of horrible play even when Bynum is gone.

3) Our defense continues to suck eggs despite our "slow lazy center" not being here anymore. Our 3x DPOY center was supposed to kiss it and make it better. It appears that some PF "throw in" Mitch acquired in the Howard deal is actually making it better while our "slow lazy PF" is out.

4) The "D12 is a franchise player" crowd. Oops. Looks like we'll be looking for #1 to pair with #2 when Kobe and Nash leave.
