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.
