Andrew Bynum injury: 76ers C practices, hopes for All-Star break return

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum said he hopes to return from his knee troubles at the NBA All-Star break.

Andrew Bynum told Philadelphia 76ers beat writer Tom Moore that he hopes to return from continuing knee issues by the All-Star break. The 7' center added that he was back to working out on a treadmill, and he was witnessed shooting short jumpers with 76ers assistant coach Michael Curry.

Bynum told Moore that he was hovering around 300 pounds but appeared upbeat about a return in about a month. The NBA All-Star weekend is Feb. 15-17 in Houston.

The news is all gravy in Sixers land. Liberty Ballers posted a photo of Bynum working out with the Philadelphia staff on Monday in what was his first recorded court action after most recently injuring his left knee while bowling. That setback lingered until about a week ago, when Bynum met with the media to say he was feeling good and would return soon.

However, there was no timetable for a return until Monday. And now there is visible evidence that Bynum is indeed recovering.
