UPDATE: According to John Mitchell of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Andrew Bynum and the Sixers are discussing the possibility that the center will have arthroscopic surgery to clean out loose cartilage around the right knee. Bynum's seasons will be over if that is the best path to take for the knee.
Bynum was having issue with both knees early in the seaon, however the left knee "feels good", according to Bynum.
Every so often we get teased by the notion that we might actually see Andrew Bynum dressed in a Philadelphia 76ers uniform banging in the paint during game action, but then yet another piece of information comes out of their camp about his troublesome knees keeping him sidelined. That's the case again Friday, as John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported on Bynum's latest setback.
"According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Andrew Bynum has experienced some swelling in the knee since practice last Friday," Mitchell tweeted.
With just seven weeks remaining in the season, it seems clear that seeing Bynum balling for the Sixers will be a major surprise. He will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end, but he may need to ink a one-year deal -- be it with the 76ers or another team -- in order to prove that he can overcome his troublesome knee issues if he wants to sign a lucrative long-term contract.
