Andrew Bynum not expected to play for the Cavs in preseason


Shocking news here, Andrew Bynum is not expected to be ready to take the court in preseason for the Cleveland Cavaliers due to lingering knee issues.

The Cavs haven’t set a specific timetable for Bynum’s return to actual game action — but they do have a plan. It’s to make sure Bynum is completely healthy before he ever puts on a uniform. In other words, the Cavs won’t rush him back just to quash any sort of fan anxiety. Training camp begins Oct. 1, with the Cavs’ first preseason game a week later (vs. the Milwaukee Bucks). One source familiar with Bynum’s progress told FOX Sports Ohio that Bynum is nowhere near ready and is likely to miss the entire preseason. He could, however, give it a go early in the regular season

Bynum has a one year deal that was structured with various milestones based off his actual play this season. Should the Cavs frontline get healthy, they could be a problem in the East.
