Andrew Bynum on Whether He’ll Play This Year: ‘I Don’t Know’ and ‘It’s My Life’

The tweets out of Friday’s Sixers practice are beginning to point to what many fans have thought for a long time.

That Andrew Bynum will not play for the Philadelphia 76ers — at least not this year.

Although there’s still 26 games to play and Bynum’s statement to reporters was not definitive, it’s the first time he’s suggested anything other than his intention to play this season.

Update: video added

As first tweeted by the Delco Times’ Chris Vito:

That quote followed this report from the Inquirer’s John Mitchell:

Speaking with reporters, Bynum confirmed the swelling and said he has not participated in any basketball activity since last Friday.

Then came the real damning stuff:

There has to be a prop bet out there about whether Bynum will see the floor this year. And, right now, you should all be running to your bookie and/or online oddsmaker.

UPDATE: Science is looking at it:

I assume he means this Science.
