At the end of the morning session at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, 76ers center Andrew Bynum, who has been watching his teammates practice from the sidelines, said that if the team were actually playing meaningful games he would be out there with them.

“I feel pretty good,” Bynum said. “I’m definitely getting better.”

The Sixers decided to rest Bynum at the start of the training camp and through the seven preseason games the team will play. Bynum received injections of plasma-rich platelets that supposedly stimulate healing in arthritis-affected areas in both of his knees last month in Germany.

Bynum said that he was anxious to get on the floor with his new teammates, and he indicated that watching them prepare for the upcoming season had been difficult. In an effort to get a better understanding of the offense, Bynum said he has been taking videos home with him and watching them at night.

Bynum said he expected to be ready for the season opener on Oct. 31 against Denver.

 “I think right now it’s about my pain threshold,” Bynum said. “I’m doing better but I can’t really get out there and get up and down with my teammates.”
