Andrew Bynum Practices 3-on-3, Pacers Hope He Can Play “Soon”



It’s easy to forget Andrew Bynum plays for the heavily favorite Indiana Pacers.

Bynum will play when he’s in shape and healthy enough to provide some quality minutes.  Pacers head coach Frank Vogel told the Indy Star, that Bynum has been practicing some 3-on-3, and they are “hopeful he’ll play soon.”

Andrew Bynum practiced three-on-three Thursday, and Vogel said he was optimistic the 7-foot center would be ready to play soon. Soon doesn’t mean a week from now, the coach said.

“The goal is to get him to the point where he’s able to play every night,” Vogel said. “We don’t want him to play one game and sit three games….

“We know what we can expect from him when he’s healthy and in shape. He’s one of the best centers in the NBA,” Vogel said. “We’ve seen flashes of that in practice that he’s shown here.”

I guess all the Pacers can do now is hope that the bright lights of the playoffs will inspire Bynum to want to be great.
