76ers center Andrew Bynum underwent arthroscopic surgery on both knees Tuesday, the team announced.

Bynum is scheduled to begin physical therapy on March 22 and will remain on crutches for six weeks.

The Sixers announced Monday the surgery would occur and it would end any chance Bynum had to play this season.

More to come.
