Andrew Bynum Out Indefinitely

Sixers center Andrew Bynum has officially been ruled out for an indefinite amount of time, and there's no timetable for his return, according to a tweet from the team's public relations director, Michael Preston. 

Tony DiLeo, Philadelphia's general manager, said trading for Bynum in the offseason was a "calculated risk" and that "his knees are worse now. His condition is different." DiLeo also said that whenever Bynum returns is up to him.

Judging from these comments, it's safe to say that the Sixers might be willing to move on this offseason, chalking this trade up as a mistake. 

While it isn't difficult to imagine at least one of the league's 30 general managers offering a player with Bynum's skill set a maximum contract offer this summer, the Sixers might be too burned by their experience this season to lock themselves in financially with their would-be franchise center.
