  1. Andrew Bynum = slow healer

    Apr 6, 2010, 8:10 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum has never met a healing timetable he liked. Last season the Lakers waited and waited and waited on their big man to return from a serious knee injury and got about 50 percent of his game back for the playoffs. That turned out to be enough. Not going to be enough this time…

  2. Shannon Brown hand injured, may need surgery after season

    Apr 6, 2010, 7:16 PM EDT

    You can add this line to the scouting report for the Lakers in the playoffs: “Give Shannon Brown room to shoot from the perimeter.” Back on March 2 Brown tried to block a Dahntay Jones dunk and in the process got a bone bruise and a torn thumb ligament in his right hand, he told…

  3. Charlie Villanueva misses team flight Monday, but it's all good now, isn't it?

    Apr 6, 2010, 6:51 PM EDT

    This probably should have happened 50 games ago, but the Pistons are a slow pot to boil. Monday afternoon, the frustration of losing — and losing a lot — finally boiled over at Pistons practice. There was the coach kicking a ball. Plenty of finger pointing. Arguments. Angry tweets after the fact. To top it…

  4. Bogut undergoes successful surgery

    Apr 6, 2010, 4:46 PM EDT

    The Associated Press is reporting that Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut underwent successful on Monday afternoon to repair his injured right hand. Bogut injured his hand, wrist, and elbow on the same gruesome fall during a game against the Phoenix Suns on Saturday. Bogut is expected to begin rehab in six weeks, which makes the…

  5. Looking at Dwight Howard's technical fouls

    Apr 6, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard is known as one of the nicest superstars in the NBA. At times, he’s even been accused of being too nice. So why is Howard one technical foul away from an automatic one-game suspension?  Orlando Pinstriped Post decided to try to answer that very question today. Commenter “magicfaninTN” put together an obsessive analysis…

  6. James Johnson to be a game-time decision

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    According to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, Bulls rookie James Johnson will be a game-time decision for Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Johnson participated in a Tuesday morning shootaround, but has been hampered by a partially torn fascia.  The game against the Bucks will be an important one for the Bulls. Chicago is…

  7. Tony Parker returns to Spurs tonight

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:45 PM EDT

    Yesterday, Gregg Popovich didn’t have an idea who would play the point for the Spurs tonight. Suddenly, they found someone. Someone really, really, really good. Tony Parker has been cleared to play and will suit up tonight for the Spurs when they take on the Kings, according to a release from the Spurs themselves. So…

  8. Hoopsworld: NBA draft has a seedy side

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:32 PM EDT

    On Monday night, the NCAA Tournament ended. On Tuesday morning, Hoopsworld reminded us how much more complicated life can get for college players once they’ve finished their amateur careers and test the NBA draft waters.  Steve Kyler wrote an article that details the various ways agents reach out to amateur players around the time of…

  9. 2010 Free Agency, from LeBron James to Will Bynum

    Apr 6, 2010, 2:11 PM EDT

    So many teams have amassed cap space for the 2010 free agent frenzy, but not everyone can end up with LeBron James. Some team will end up with Josh Howard and Channing Frye instead. I mean, that cap space wasn’t going to spend itself, am I right? For all the fans out there that know…

  10. Don Nelson has no use for your little Hall of Fame

    Apr 6, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    Yesterday our own Ira Winderman said shame on the Hall of Fame for not having Don Nelson in it. Today, Nelson said pretty much the same thing to ESPN’s Marc Stein (in a fantastic and wide-ranging interview). Particularly if they vote him in next year just for getting the all-time coaching wins record after skipping…

  11. Maybe Real Madrid wants to buy out Rudy Fernandez

    Apr 6, 2010, 1:37 PM EDT

    There is nothing new in Rudy Fernandez not being happy in Portland. He wasn’t happy when our own Matt Moore was writing about him in February. He’s not happy now when Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune is talking to him now. Fernandez is an athletic two guard who should be allowed to run free,…

  12. Rockets make D-League's Alexander Johnson latest call up

    Apr 6, 2010, 12:54 PM EDT

    Alexander Johnson was flat out beasting in the D-League — 23 points per game while shooting 57 percent and adding 11 rebounds while playing in Sioux Falls. That will get you noticed. The Rockets need some depth along the front line, so they are going to give him a look through the end of the…

  13. LeBron James may follow Shaq to the silver screen

    Apr 6, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Did Kazaam teach us nothing? Apparently not, because LeBron James is attached (to use the industry lingo) to a Malcolm D. Lee (“Undercover Brother,” “Soul Men”) comedy called “Fantasy Basketball Camp.” The Hollywood Reporter has the details (hat tip to Ben Maller). Originally written by Babaloo Mandel and Lowell Ganz, the story centers on five…

  14. Do you want to play point guard for the Spurs?

    Apr 6, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Second year man George Hill — out of that little college with like the 18-letter acronym — had been looking like a vet running the point for the Spurs while Tony Parker lounges around with Eva Longoria does his physical therapy on his broken hand. Then Hill went down with a sprained ankle against the…

  15. LeBron James deserves a break today

    Apr 6, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    It’s the fairy tale they teach us about the American dream in our youth — work extra hard, be good and you get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. It’s a load of crap — you telling me the office janitor isn’t working harder than a lot of guys in suits? — but we…

  16. Quote of the day: Losing sucks

    Apr 6, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    “They say losing builds character. ‘I say losing sucks. That’s what I think.” –Ben Wallace, on the Pistons season. (Via and TrueHoop)

  17. Twitter mystery: What happened at Pistons practice yesterday?

    Apr 6, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    Finally, something interesting happened with the Pistons. But we don’t know what. Instead, we have a “twitter mystery” thanks to two player tweets yesterday. The first was Charlie Villanueva. This has been a very fustrating year, it just only got worse 2day, I have never experienced, in my 5 years, what I have experience this…

  18. Shawn Marion's injury could be problematic

    Apr 6, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    The Dallas Mavericks’ defense is in trouble, and their inability to get stops is a big reason why they’ve faded since their 13-game winning streak. Brendan Haywood and Erick Dampier have been a bit more up-and-down than Rick Carlisle would like, the rotations have been a step slow, and giving up open shots on the…

  19. Michael Sweetney's fall from Knicks savior to Puerto Rico

    Apr 6, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    There was a time when some of the Knicks fan base — some smart parts of the Knicks fan base — were high on Michael Sweetney. He looked good in limited minutes, he needed more burn. He got his chance. And… Now he’s in Puerto Rico, having left the D-League. Sweetney has signed with Cangrejeros…

  20. Nate Robinson's spark not in the Celtics rotation

    Apr 6, 2010, 9:22 AM EDT

    Remember the cries: Nate Robinson is the answer. He is going to give the Celtics bench the spark it was lacking. The man can score in bunches. Defense and offensive system be damned. This was the man the Celtics needed. Celtics nation rejoiced when he was pried out of New York. Today’s reality is that…
