  1. Piston's Jonas Jerebko injures Achilles, surgery will keep him out 5 to 6 months

    Oct 6, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:45 pm: The news is bad — a torn Achilles, which means surgery and 5 to 6 months of recovery, according to a tweet from the official Detroit Pistons account. That will have the second year forward back sometime after the All-Star break. 8:40 am: Jonas Jerebko got the start for the Pistons at…

  2. Detroit rookie Terrico White breaks foot, needs surgery

    Oct 6, 2010, 5:37 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:37 pm: Just a bad outcome for White — he needs to have surgery to repair his broken foot and will go under the knife on Friday, according to the official Detroit Piston twitter account. How long he will be out will be determined after the surgery. However the basic rule of “foot surgery…

  3. Dwight Howard seeks to expand his post game, learns from the best

    Oct 6, 2010, 4:30 PM EDT

    To the casual fan, Dwight Howard’s post game is a crime against humanity. A man with his physical gifts should be dropping 30 a night, they say. Dropping sky hooks on a whim, they say. Calling to mind the centers of old, they say. To hell with that, I say. Howard’s moves on the block…

  4. Shaun Livingston experiencing some pain in his repaired knee

    Oct 6, 2010, 3:53 PM EDT

    Shaun Livingston’s career is in his knees. Or in his knee, really. Until the day he retires from the game for good, there will always be questions (from fans, teammates, trainers, coaches, and managers alike) about the stability of that joint, and as much as I wish we could scrub The Snap Heard ‘Round the…

  5. Mike D'Antoni's vote of confidence in Timofey Mozgov's basketball ability, if not his language skills

    Oct 6, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

    All basketball coaches play favorites, but Mike D’Antoni — no stranger to wearing his opinion on his press scrum sleeve — is a bit more forthcoming with that information than most NBA types. It’s still something short of explicit, but deciphering Pringles’ player-specific quotes doesn’t take much imagination. Plenty of this year’s Knicks have D’Antoni…

  6. Byron Scott is not evil, just needs fashion advice

    Oct 6, 2010, 2:44 PM EDT

    If you don’t hang out on NBA message boards… good for you. You have a life, please go enjoy it. Don’t change. But you may have missed this photo making the rounds. It’s the Cavaliers coaching staff from media day. Now take a good look at Byron Scott’s tie… yup, that’s a swastika in the…

  7. TJ Ford out at least a week with hamstring injury

    Oct 6, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

    Suddenly, guards getting preseason hamstring injuries is the trend. Guys — just because they are doing it in Miami doesn’t mean you have to. T.J Ford will be out at least a week with a hamstring injury, according to the Indianapolis Star.He will not suit up in the team’s preseason opener against the Grizzlies tonight.…

  8. NBA Season Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder

    Oct 6, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Last season: 50-32, which tied them three ways for the sixth seed, but due to tiebreakers they got the eighth spot — and the Lakers in the first round. The athleticism of the Thunder pushed it six games, but you have to learn to win in the NBA and the Thunder are still learning. Head…

  9. Round one to JJ Hickson over Antawn Jamison, barely

    Oct 6, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Byron Scott’s biggest challenge… let me rephrase that because Scott has a multitude of challenges taking over the post-LeBron Cavaliers. One of Scott’s biggest challenges is the four spot — the proven veteran Antawn Jamison or the future of the team at the position, JJ Hickson? While it is not a totally either/or situation, the…

  10. See Heat vs. Knicks in 3D (without going to the game)

    Oct 6, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    A year ago I was at a fundraiser event where Panasonic was a major sponsor, and as part of the event they set up a special tent to show off what 3D television really meant. As part of the demonstration, they showed a couple minutes of a Beijing Olympics soccer game shot in 3D (NBC…

  11. General Managers predict Durant as MVP over LeBron, Lakers three-peat

    Oct 6, 2010, 11:50 AM EDT

    You’re not the only one who thinks there will be voter fatigue — or backlash, if you wish — against LeBron James when it comes time for MVP voting. General managers around the NBA seem to think so, according to the results published at TrueHoop. In its annual survey of GMs, NBA.com found one just…

  12. Rudy Fernandez to the Knicks, not totally dead yet

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:56 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez went out Tuesday night and reminded everyone he can play — 15 points on 5 of 6 from three, plus five rebounds and three assists. Happy or not in Portland, he can contribute. Word comes out of New York that the Knicks still have some interest in Fernandez, according to Frank Isola of…

  13. Is Andrew Bynum one more injury away from Yao Ming territory?

    Oct 6, 2010, 10:05 AM EDT

    How injury prone is Andrew Bynum? Is it a glass half full and this was just a series of flukes? Or is the parade of injuries a pattern that will continue through his career? Phil Jackson was pretty honest about it when asked by the Los Angeles Times while in Barcelona with the team on…

  14. Notes from a night of watching preseason hoops

    Oct 6, 2010, 9:20 AM EDT

    Turns out more than just the Miami Heat played last night. There were eight games on the docket and while results don’t matter things like how players looked and took advantage of opportunities do. Here are a few notes from a night of flipping through League Pass: * There was a time just a few…

  15. For Gilbert Arenas, the thrill is gone baby, it's gone away for good

    Oct 6, 2010, 2:44 AM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas looked pretty good in his first game back considering he was suspended most of last season and missed part of training camp with a sprained ankle. He finished with 12 points on 5 of 9 shooting . But the happy-go-lucky, passionate Gilbert Arenas was nowhere to be seen Wednesday, apparently disappearing after being…

  16. Winderman: Without Wade in the lineup, Heat learn nothing from first game

    Oct 5, 2010, 11:32 PM EDT

    So what did the Heat learn Tuesday night, as they unveiled their Big Three in their 105-89 exhibition victory over Detroit? What they already knew. And what Erik Spoelstra’s team knows can’t be the rule. With Dwyane Wade sidelined by a strained right hamstring that could keep him out for two weeks, the Heat had…

  17. Dwyane Wade strains hamstring, taken out of first preseason game

    Oct 5, 2010, 10:42 PM EDT

    UPDATE 10:42 pm: Wade spoke to the media after the game and confirmed it is a pulled hamstring. He is going to rest and get treatment and be re-evaluated in a week. It likely will be a couple of weeks before Wade is running at full speed again and put back in any games. Wade…

  18. NBA Jam will let you have Obama dunking on LeBron. Or Sarah Palin. Your call.

    Oct 5, 2010, 6:06 PM EDT

    I know that today is NBA2K11 day, and I know that this version kills it. Don’t believe me? Then believe Kobe. But I still am more pumped to sit down and play NBA Jam — the throwback/updated video game of 2-on-2 where the ball catches on fire and the boom-shaka-laka rains down. The one video…

  19. English Premiere League made $155 million from ads on jerseys. How long until NBA follows?

    Oct 5, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    Next summer, rather than talking about Carmelo Anthony, Tayshaun Prince, Tony Paker and the free agent class (or those just pushing for trades anyway) we’re going to be talking about “percentage of basketball related income” and figuring out salary cap structures.  We’ll be talking Collective Bargaining Agreement. Next summer the players and the owners are…

  20. Jannero Pargo let go by Hornets

    Oct 5, 2010, 5:06 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:06 pm: Pargo is going to back to Chicago to rehab his knee and hopes to be ready and on a roster by the start of the season, his agent Mark Bartelstien told Marc Spears of Yahoo. Both the Warriors and Hornets have concerns about his knee, but if he can get it healthy…
