76ers GM Tony DiLeo says Bynum's knees are healing and can increase his activity level.— Dan Gelston (@APgelston) December 21, 2012
Bynum was acquired in a trade over the summer from the Los Angeles Lakers and has yet to play since joining the team while he deals with a right knee injury. Although the team is optimistic, Dan Gelston with the Associated Press also reports they're still taking things carefully even though the MRI results continue to improve.
The 7-footer is a free agent at the end of the season, and it's unclear whether he would re-sign with the 76ers once his contract is finished. Bynum has played a full 82 games just once in his career during the 2006-2007 season with the Los Angeles Lakers. He has played no more than 65 games in a season since then.
Last season, Bynum averaged a double-double, 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per contest for the Lakers.
