Hard to get any conditioning work done when you are having procedures done on your knees every other week.
Mix that in with the fact Bynum isn’t the hardest worker in the world and it is looking less and less likely that Bynum will be making his debut in the Sixers’ season opener.
Here is what the Sixers are saying courtesy of Pro Basketball Talk.
Bynum’s conditioning will be a concern. While he is able to do some cardiovascular work on what (76ers coach Doug) Collins has described as an “antigravity machine,” there is nothing Bynum can do to prepare him for games.
“A lot of that is going to be how he responds to increased activity,” Collins said when asked if Bynum would be ready for the start of the season. “I know how important the home opener is, but we’re not going to do anything silly and have another setback where it costs you and now you have to miss those kinds of games.”
When they have to put you on an anti-gravity treadmill, that is all you really need to know.
