PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia 76ers center Andrew Bynum is scheduled for another injection on his injured right knee.
Bynum on Monday will receive an injection of Synvisc - a gel-like substance that sometimes provides relief for inflamed tissue. The natural substance is designed to lubricate and cushion the joint. The Sixers say the shot has been a routine procedure for Bynum during the previous two seasons and is unrelated to the bone bruise on his right knee.
Bynum will continue with conditioning drills. He has been held out of all basketball activity this preseason as a precaution after receiving knee treatment in Germany. They still expect him to be ready for the Oct. 31 season opener.
The Sixers acquired Bynum from the Lakers in a four-team deal that saw them ship Andre Iguodala to Denver.
