Philadelphia 76ers center, Andrew Bynum, has predicted that he will return by the NBA’s All-Star break. He’s currently on a rehabilitation program that is helping him work his way into the lineup.
Bynum’s workouts have been including weights and running. According to the Associated Press, Bynum said in an interview that his knees have gotten much better, "They're the best I've had in a long time, so they look really, really good to me." He still has a lot of work to do, but he’s moving in a positive direction.
Bynum has yet to play in a single game since he played for his former team in the western conference playoffs.
The 76ers have lost 13 games after playing 17. Bynum is working very hard to get back to work and help his new team start winning again. Philly.com reports that Bynum said, "I'm coming along well, up to running on the Alter G [antigravity treadmill], a steady 8 mph an hour clip for 20 minutes, so that's good. I'm incorporating weights, so it's time to get ready, get ready to play. [The weightlifting includes] more explosive stuff, stuff for my legs, my upper body."
Patience will be key for Bynum so he’s at less risk for reinjuring his fragile knees. The 76ers' next game is against the New Orleans Hornets.
