Andrew Bynum says he plans on making his season debut for the Philadelphia 76ers this year, though he's still a week or two away from practicing with the team.

The 7-foot center has been sidelined by knee injuries since the Sixers acquired him from the Los Angeles Lakers last summer. He worked out for 80 minutes on Tuesday and said afterward his knees are feeling better, but he doesn't expect to ever be pain-free.

Bynum's timetable for a return has been pushed back numerous times since training camp opened with him off the court. He says he won't rush his return just to help Philadelphia make a playoff push or to improve his status with his pending free agency.
