However, he could be close to returning.
“He's been practicing 5-on-5 the last week-and-a-half,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said, via The News-Herald. “When it gets to the point where we all feel he's (ready to play), we'll clear him.”
Bynum, 25, hasn't played in a game since May 2012 when he was with the Lakers. He was traded to the 76ers where he didn't appear once, and in free agency signed a $24 million deal with the Cavs, with only about a quarter of it guaranteed.
Bynum resumed basketball activities about a week ago and him progressing to 5-on-5 drills is a positive sign for a return. No setbacks, no swelling, no issues. A big part of his return will be conditioning since again, it's been a while since he's played.
