Andrew Bynum still expected to play for 76ers this season
When Collins mentions getting healthy, he is referring to center Andrew Bynum, who has been sidelined all season. Bynum is expected to make his debut with the team in the final 31 games, 19 of which will be played away from the Wells Fargo Center.

Bynum, recovering from bone bruises and what he calls weakened cartilage in both knees, has said he would play for the team after the all-star break. On Monday, when reporters were permitted to watch the Sixers practice, Bynum was on the floor participating in non-contact drills with his teammates.

Still, Collins spoke cautiously about Bynum's return.

"He's s still where he's been, so there's nothing that's changed with that," Collins said of Bynum, whom all-star Jrue Holiday described as looking like "a beast."

Re: Andrew Bynum still expected to play for 76ers this season
Bynum is ramping up his activity. On Wednesday, while the Sixers play at Minnesota (19-31), he's headed to see orthopedic surgeon Jonathan Glashow in New York.

Bynum is going to play this season, but the Sixers have to be looking at this from a big-picture standpoint. This is one of those seasons often described as taking a step backward to move forward.

Can they move forward with Bynum, an unrestricted free agent this summer, who Tuesday said he wants to play for the Sixers?

Those questions have to be answered emphatically and resoundingly - yay or nay - by team orthopedist and medical director Jack McPhilemy and his staff. If the Sixers are going to recommit to Bynum, there can be no equivocation on his prognosis. Either he can play and will, or he can't play and won't.
