The Philadelphia 76ers announced Tuesday there is no timetable for the return of center Andrew Bynum.
Bynum has been suffering from a bone bruise in his right knee since before training camp began.
"With the team's intriguing play in the pre-season leading to a 6-1 pre-season record, we are confident that the 76ers will be an exciting, talented and highly competitive team from day one," 76ers General Manager Tony DiLeo said in a statement. "When Andrew Bynum rejoins for game play, that will take an already strong team to an even higher level."
The team said Bynum has started "low-impact conditioning," and will be re-evaluated by team's doctors on a regular basis.
He received Orthokine therapy for his bruised right knee in September.
Bynum came to Philadelphia as part of the four-team trade that sent Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers in August. He averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds in 60 games last season for the Lakers.
