Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia 76ers general manager Tony DiLeo said Friday that Andrew Bynum has been cleared to increase activity with his rehab plan, but there is still no timetable for his return.
Bynum, acquired by the Sixers from the Lakers in August as part of the four- team, 12-player blockbuster trade that sent Dwight Howard from Orlando to Los Angeles, has yet to play for Philadelphia this season due to problems with both of his knees.
The 25-year-old Bynum, who has a history of troubles with both knees, was diagnosed with a bone bruise of the right knee in September. It was then reported in November that Bynum hurt his left knee while bowling.
The Sixers said in late November that Bynum would be out indefinitely, but they were hoping for him to return in January.
"His knees are healing. He is improving," DiLeo said on Friday.
