    Apr 9, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Just like after the Mavericks last game, coach Rick Carlisle was not going to talk about Lamar Odom on Monday. All he said is they wouldn’t have trouble filling his playing time, which was all of 4 minutes last game and 34 over the last four. So reporters turned to ask veteran Jason Terry if…

    Apr 9, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    Baylor Bears' Jones drives into Kentucky Wildcats' Miller during the second half of their men's NCAA South Regional basketball game in Atlanta

    This was another expected announcement — Baylor’s Perry Jones III is headed to the NBA, according to CollegeBasketballTalk (via CBSSport.com’s Jeff Goodman). But this is the kind of player that scares NBA general managers because he feels boom or bust. ESPN’s Chad Ford put it well once: “A” game and a “C” motor. That said…

    Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson, Gary Neal

    Can you picture a San Antonio vs. Miami finals? It’s not that hard, if you try. 1. Spurs (40-14, last week ranked number 2). Eleven wins in a row and they are percentage points ahead of the Thunder (and one ahead of them in the loss column). Are they title contenders? They have four rings…

  11. Dwight Howard out for Magic Monday, maybe Tuesday

    Apr 9, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    This has nothing to do with his ongoing issues with coach Stan Van Gundy and everything to do with his ongoing problem with back spasms.

  13. Collins calls 76ers, young players “sensitive,” “fragile”

    Apr 9, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    Doug Collins, Kevin Fehr

    Well, this should help his standing in the locker room… Old school, hard-a** coach Doug Collins had lifted the 76ers up last season and this season had them on top of the Atlantic Division and playing great defense with a fast 20-9 start. Then that defense slipped, the offense tanked, there was a losing streak…

  14. Hornets’ Jarrett Jack out rest of season with foot injury

    Apr 9, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    This isn’t the Hornets tanking… but it doesn’t hurt. Point guard Jarrett Jack — the one bright spot in a pretty dismal Hornets year on the court — is out for the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot, the team announced (hat tip to Marc Spears of Yahoo). It’s…

    Apr 9, 2012, 10:06 AM EDT

    Ray Allen

    Ray Allen has played in 1,147 NBA games and started in all but six of those. But he came off the bench Sunday for the Celtics and may be doing so for the rest of the season — Allen even volunteered to do so after starting one game following his return from injury. Doc Rivers…

    Kevin Garnett, Marquis Daniels

    With just more than two weeks left in the regular season, the NBA’s playoff picture is starting to come into focus. Sort of. Here is where things stand as of Monday morning.

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin said a couple days ago that he was hopeful he would be back for the round of the payoffs. But he is a Harvard guy — there is a logic in his brain that can see through the emotion of when he wants to be to the reality of where…
