  1. Marvin Williams and Shawne Williams receive suspensions for rough housing

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:49 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    So like we said, that fracas last night in the Knicks-Hawks game was was severe enough to land a few suspensions. The NBA has suspended Marvin Williams of the Hawks two games and Shawne Williams of the Knicks one game for ‘scuffling and tuffling’ as I like to imagine Clyde Frazier would say. The two…

  2. The Trail Blazers have plans to start over

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    It was inevitable, really. The promise held in the 2008 and 2009 seasons for the Portland Trail Blazers have vanished in a blur of surgical knives, press releases featuring the words “out for the season” and a crowd of players in tailored suits on the bench.  Joel Przybilla was the lucky one. He only hurt…

  3. Amar’e sprains knee, questionable Sunday versus Detroit

    Jan 29, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Atlanta Hawks

    In last night’s fracas-filled loss to the Hawks, Amar’e Stoudemire had a pretty scary moment. Marvin Williams, who would later be the culprit in the fight, accidentally landed and rolled up under his knee. In case you hadn’t heard, any time you hear the words Amar’e and “knee,” Knicks fans start spasming uncontrollably. Amar’e walked…

  4. No trade interest in Rip Hamilton, so he lives in limbo

    Jan 29, 2011, 1:30 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Rip Hamilton is living in basketball limbo. He hasn’t been playing, sat down by his coach. The Pistons are trying to find someone to trade for him but Hamilton but he is owed $25 million over the next two seasons. Guaranteed. At that price nobody is interested in making a trade, reports Ken Berger at…

  5. Hawks and Knicks have a throwdown

    Jan 29, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Atlanta Hawks

    Well, no one hit anyone in their junk, but turns out Celtics-Suns wasn’t the only dust-up Friday night. In the fourth quarter of the Hawks’ comfortable win over the Knicks, two players got tangled up, and punches were thrown. Now, having known that, what two players would you guess were involved? Wilson Chandler? Zaza Pachulia?…

  6. Kobe Bryant moves to 8th all-time scorer, hits 21 in 1st, 1-5 clutch in loss

    Jan 29, 2011, 10:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Last night was just a big night for Kobe Bryant in general. You might even say it was a rollercoaster of emotions for him. Perhaps a rollercoaster of love. Maybe not. By the end of the night he’d hit another amazing career milestone, had an insane first quarter display, a disappointing end, and a loss.…

  7. KG hits Channing Frye in the junk, gets ejected

    Jan 29, 2011, 8:00 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    So, in the midst of the Celtics’ abominable debacle against the Suns last night (hello, back-to-backs), things kind of got out of hand. Doc Rivers was tossed for continually arguing calls. The Celtics were getting rolled by the Suns, and then, well, this happened. As to whether or not this was a foul, I only…

  8. Carmelo trade could give the West another All-Star spot

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:15 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    Carmelo Anthony trade rumors may have temporarily ceded their control of basketball fans the world over, but the possibility of an Anthony trade still looms. It’s not imminent. The relative seriousness of trade talks isn’t worthy of an hourly update. But the foundation of what would cause Anthony to be moved in the first place…

  9. Rose will play through ulcers against Orlando

    Jan 28, 2011, 8:05 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, Charlie Villanueva

    According to the Associated Press, Derrick Rose will play against the Magic tonight, despite two painful ulcers in his stomach: All-Star point guard Derrick Rose will play for the Chicago Bulls against the Orlando Magic on Friday despite two painful stomach ulcers.

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

  11. These should be your All-Star Game reserves

    Jan 28, 2011, 5:20 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The fans have spoken — the 10 NBA All-Star Game starters have been chosen. And as we said before, good on ya. The fans did well this time around. The way this works is the fans pick the five starters, then the coaches (or more likely an assistant coach, or the video guy, or the…

  12. Chris Paul thinks Hornets should be on national television. At least once.

    Jan 28, 2011, 3:13 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    Voters — wise folks that you are — swept Chris Paul into a starting spot on the Western Conference NBA All-Stars. When asked about it by Art Garcia at NBA.com and the Hang Time blog he spit out the usual clichés — then he took a little swing at those setting the television schedule. “I…

  13. Kobe isn’t as clutch as you think, but he’s not as bad as some think

    Jan 28, 2011, 2:35 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    There is no middle ground when it comes to Kobe Bryant — you either worship him or you hate him. The shades of gray have been washed away and he exists only as the guy in the white hat or the black hat. Of course, reality is never that clean and simple. One think Kobe…

  14. Deron Williams out for Jazz Friday against Minnesota

    Jan 28, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    The good news is Deron Williams sore wrist has no structural damage — an MRI came back negative, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. The bad news is his wrist was too sore to grip a basketball at shootaround Friday and he said he would not play against Minnesota, according to a tweet from Steve…

  15. Trail Blazers Batum’s MRI negative, he’s day-to-day

    Jan 28, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    At this point, shouldn’t the Trail Blazers just invest in their own MRI machine? The Blazers got some good news in their latest MRI results that show Nicolas Batum has a bone bruise on his knee but nothing more serious, the team announced Friday morning. He is listed as day-to-day. Batum was injured in the…

  16. ‘Melo isn’t original — Kareem forced his way to Lakers the same way

    Jan 28, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with Bucks

    It’s a new era. NBA players are taking control of their careers in a way they never have before. Did you see Miami? Now we have Carmelo Anthony trying to manuever his way out of Denver to New York like no player has ever done before. Wrong. Players have done it before. More than once.…

  17. Pistons without Stuckey, Wallace and Hamilton Friday against Heat

    Jan 28, 2011, 12:48 PM EST

    Rodney Stuckey injured

    We knew Rip Hamilton was not going to play Friday night for the Pistons against the Heat. He’s officially out with the stomach flu but even if he were officially at the arena and ready to play he’d be benched by coach John Kuester because… we don’t know. But he would be. However it’s much…

  18. Report: Damien Wilkins signed by Hawks for rest of season

    Jan 28, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    Damien Wilkins

    The Hawks didn’t bring in Damien Wilkins as a legacy, they brought him in because they thought he could play. And they liked what they have seen. The Hawks have signed Wilkins through the end of the season, according to a tweet from Marc Spears of Yahoo. Wilkins is the nephew of Hawks legend Dominique…

  19. Suns owner says Nash not being traded, expects team to come together

    Jan 28, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Suns Robert Sarver

    Suns owner Robert Sarver is optimistic. Or delusional if you want. Your pick. He told the Arizona Republic that this team is not that far removed from last season’s version that rode a hot streak to the Western Conference finals. That’s pretty darn optimistic (or delusional) — this year’s version is five games back of…

  20. Paul Pierce suffers knee bruise, game-time decision against Suns

    Jan 28, 2011, 10:12 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic, Game 4

    At some point in the third quarter of Boston’s win in Portland Thursday, Paul Pierce hurt his knee. It’s not that serious — he played seven minutes of the fourth quarter after the injury — and he thinks it’s just a bruise, but if there is swelling Pierce could miss the Celtics game against the…
