Andrew Bynum is still visiting doctors and considering how to best attempt to resolve his knee troubles, according to a Philadelphia 76ers team spokesperson, who said there was no official update on the one-time All-Star center's condition.
The 7-foot, 300-pound Bynum has been sidelined by bone bruises and damaged cartilage in his knees since September. The Sixers acquired him from the Los Angeles Lakers in a four-team trade in August.
On March 3, Sixers general manager Tony DiLeo said that Bynum was considering arthroscopic surgery on his ailing knees. Bynum met with doctors, including longtime personal orthopedist David Altchek, early last week.
The last time Bynum spoke to the media, on March 1, he said that his right knee continued to swell a week after taking part in his first practice of the season and that he's no longer confident he'll play for the Sixers this season.
Bynum has said there's no surgical procedure available guaranteed to repair his knees to the level where he could return to the court and that he doesn't want to play in pain.
