The 76ers officially ruled out Andrew Bynum’s participation in Wednesday’s home opener against Denver during an evening practice at Wells Fargo Center on the eve of their season. Additionally, the Sixers said there is no timeframe for Bynum’s return.

“While Andrew and the 76ers are both eager for him to resume game play as soon as possible, given the long regular season and the playoffs, the team intends to act with caution as to the date of his return,” read a statement issued by the team.

“Andrew has already commenced low-impact conditioning,” the statement continued, “and will be re-evaluated by medical personnel on a continuous basis.”
