Friday, the Eastern Conference-leading
Indiana Pacers visit Wells Fargo Center. Andrew Bynum, however, won’t be among
those taking the floor.
Bynum will not play against
the Sixers, Indiana coach Frank Vogel told reporters Thursday at the Pacers’
practice in Indianapolis. The 7-footer will be available for the Pacers
Saturday at Detroit, Vogel said.
The center, who missed all of
last season for the Sixers, was expected to play in Philly given that he’s had
two days of recovery. He made his debut for Indiana Tuesday with eight points
