For the first time since being traded to the Philadelphia 76’ers last summer, Andrew Bynum practiced with the team on Friday. Saturday night prior to the Sixers loss at home to the Miami Heat, head coach Doug Collins gave an update on Bynum’s 5-on-5 practice and the news doesn’t sound promising.
“It’s amazing seeing him standing out there; he distorted the whole practice,” Collins said. “You get visions of what might’ve been … He’s said that he’s going to play, but this season is slipping away. We’ve got 24 games after (this weekend). We’re eight (games) under .500, and we’ve got to play the Miami Heat four times.”
Collins said Bynum would inform them of any future updates, as he has during the entire process.
“You should talk to him,” Collins said. “I don’t want to be the messenger because they shoot messengers.”
“I’ll definitely be back sometime this year,” Bynum said earlier this week. “I’m focused on getting back and being right versus trying to rush.”
I don’t see how Bynum makes it back to the court this season. Sixers have already indicated they want to resign Bynum but for how much is the question.
Until then, we’ll have to get our entertainment from Drew’s wide array of hairstyles. The latest, box braids.
