According to Sixers GM Tony DiLeo, newly acquired Andrew Bynum will be out for the rest of the 2012-13 season and possibly beyond. Andrew Bynum having series of surgeries and knee problems will throw in the towel this season.
As DiLeo states, “Bottom line Andrew is out indefinitely.” (via ESPN.com)
This leaves the Philadelphia front office with questions on whether to sign him next summer as he is in his final year of his contact that grants him $16.5 million. This shakes up the Philadelphia 76ers expectations on Bynum now that the seven-year center will be on the sidelines.
Doug Collins’ team has a 7-5 record thus far. They will look to keep the ball rolling without their top superstar in which hasn’t played a single game in the 2012-13 season.
