'Andrew Bynum' photo (c) 2012, Keith Allison - license: biggest question surrounding Andrew Bynum's signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers was would he be able to stay healthy.

At this point the question is getting him healthy enough to find out.

After Bynum missed all of the 2012-13 season with the Philadelphia 76ers due to knee problems, the 7-footer will not be ready to go when training camp opens and may miss the entire preseason according to Fox Sports Ohio's Sam Amico.

This is not big news to anyone who has been paying attention to the Cavaliers or Bynum's injury. Cleveland have expressed that they will not rush their big offseason signing back too quickly and want to make sure he is 100% before he steps on the court. They do not want him to miss more time later in the season because things were not handled properly now.

Training camp starts October 1 for the Cavaliers and they have their first preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks on October 8.

Ideally, the Cavs would like to get Bynum back before the season starts, in order for him to begin to build a trust and understanding with his new teammates, but again they want him to be fully healthy.

Bynum's injury history dates back to the beginning of his career. Coming out of high school in 2005-06, Bynum has played all 82 games of an NBA season just once – 06-07 – and has had issues in both knees.

It is smart of the Cavaliers to make sure he is healthy before he suits up, but they also don't want to see their investment ride the pine like the 76ers did last season.
