INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Bynum joined the Indiana Pacers for the first time since signing a week ago.

Bynum participated in the team’s shootaround at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Friday morning as the Pacers prepared for their game against Portland on Friday night.

A snowstorm kept the 7-foot center from landing in Indianapolis sooner, and Pacers coach Frank Vogel expects to take “a few weeks” to get Bynum ready to play in a game.

Bynum played in 24 games this season with the Cleveland Cavaliers before being suspended indefinitely by the team in December.
