Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT).
Dwyane Wade is eating Chlorophyll as part of his new diet. Seriously.
Is Zach Randolph’s knee injury worse than the Grizzlies first let on? We may know Wednesday.
Andrew Bogut left the Bucks and missed their game last night (a loss to the Jazz) due to personal reasons.
The Clippers expect to get Chauncey Billups back for Wednesday’s game.
Kyle Lowry led the Rockets in rebounding against the Lakers Tuesday. Six-foot flat point guard Kyle Lowry. That’s a problem.
C.J. Watson’s elbow is going to keep him out the next three or four games for the Bulls.
Mike Conely returned to the Grizzlies lineup Tuesday in a surprise, coming off the bench.
Josh McRoberts is out of the Lakers lineup with a sore toe. (Hard to run on those.)
Patty Mills has been cut from his Chinese team, which said he faked an injury. This is the same team Kenyon Martin was on, however, like Martin Mills cannot sign with an NBA team until the Chinese team’s season ends.
The Hawks Jeff Teague is still trying to find the balance between when to attack and when to defer and pass to teammates. He’s been working on that since he came into the league.
Kris Humphries‘ shoulder is only sprained and you will be able to resume booing him in just a game or two.
Antawn Jamison hopes to finish his career a Bobcat. You read that right.
Notice that the guys leading the Magic are all home-grown, not the free agents brought in to boost the squad.
Will Bynum is out of the Pistons rotation.
The Chicago Bulls are running a lot this season, which is a good thing.
Luol Deng talks about all things Bulls.
The Spurs sent Gary Neal down to the D-League on a rehab assignment after an appendectomy. Apparently he is doing well because he’s been called back up.
The Clippers made it official and signed Solomon Jones, looking to bulk up a little up front.
The Clippers did not sign D.J. Mbenga, who now is reportedly close to signing with Olympiacos in Greece.
Cory Joseph has been sent to Austin of the D-League by the Spurs.
Mikki Moore is headed to the D-League as well.
ESPN just made a great hire with Kate Fagen (most recently a 76ers beat writer), and Henry Abbott passes along a great story about her playing one-on-one against her dad.
