Andrew Bynum continues to report progress with his injured knees, but a significant hurdle awaits.

“I still haven’t done lateral movement, and that will be the biggest test,” the 76ers center said before Monday’s game against the San Antonio Spurs at the Wells Fargo Center. “Cutting is the last thing to do, and I think I am building up to that slowly but surely.”

Bynum said he still hopes to make his first appearance this season after the all-star break. He said the most positive development is that he is not feeling pain in his knees.

Bynum, whose only running has come on a treadmill, has been working on shooting and post moves.
