Sixers’ Andrew Bynum unsure if he’ll play this season

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum has faced another setback involving his ailing knee, and he told reporters, including John Gonzalez of CSN Philly, that he’s unsure if he’ll play this season.

The setback became apparent after Bynum participated in five-on-five drills last Friday. He said his right knee swelled up and remains swollen. Since then he’s been shut down by the team as far as any baseball-related activity goes. Instead, the center has returned to focusing on his “rehab stuff,” including icing and stretching to attempt to recover and get the fluid out of his knee.

Bynum said just a few weeks ago that he was sure he would play this season, but now he admitted that he’s not as confident. He told reporters that it’s getting late into the campaign and he can no longer say for sure if he’ll get on the court.

This has been beyond frustrating for Philadelphia and its fans. Bynum’s long-term future is in question, but he’ll be a free agent after the season. For this reason, teams, including the 76ers, will have to decide if they want to invest in a potentially broken player.
