PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Andrew Bynum says his knees are better and he still plans on playing this season for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Bynum refused to offer a possible return date. He says he should be running and shooting by the end of the week. Bynum has started working out on a treadmill.
Bynum has missed all 35 games this season because of bone bruises in both knees. He says there's nothing he can do, ``but wait.''
He's hopeful he'll avoid another setback. Bynum says his right knee feels fine and the pain is going away in his left.
The 25-year-old center is in the final year of his contract and he could sign a five-year deal worth more than $100 million in the offseason, if he's healthy. But his uncertain status could be costing the All-Star millions.
The Sixers acquired the 7-foot center from the Los Angeles Lakers in the offseason.
