Bynum, who is yet to play this season due to knee issues, will have an MRI done on December 20. He said he still feels pain simply walking around and doesn't expect to start playing right away even when he receives medical clearance. Still, despite the prolonged knee issues, he said he hasn't considered the possibility that he won't play at all this season.
With knee pain limiting what he can do, Bynum said he's staying in shape by swimming laps. While he is yet to help Philadelphia on the court this season, he said he still thinks he can help the 76ers win. Bynum said if the Finals were going on now, he could "potentially" be helping the team.
Without Bynum, the 76ers are off to an 11-9 start and are currently sixth in the Eastern Conference.
