Andrew Bynum will not play Friday against Sixers, says Pacers coach Frank Vogel


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 and 10 rebounds in 16 minutes of the Pacers’ win over Boston. It was his first game action since Dec. 26, when Bynum was with Cleveland.

Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen, who were traded from the Sixers to Indiana in a deadline deal, will be available for the game.

Turner is averaging 9.1 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists in nearly 23 minutes per game. Allen has played in only three of nine games since the trade, and is averaging 4.3 minutes per appearance.
