Andrew Bynum has been cleared to start a six-step rehabilitation process but there is still no timetable when he can return to play for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 7-foot center hasn’t practiced or played for the Sixers this season because of bone bruises in his knees…

Bynum says ”I’m confident I’ll be on the court this season.” He was acquired in the offseason from the Los Angeles Lakers as part of a four-team trade.
