  1. Dwyane Wade ruled out, LeBron James a game time decision against Suns

    Nov 17, 2012, 3:01 PM EDT

    Dwayne Wade, LeBron James

    UPDATE 8:05 p.m. ET: LeBron James will be in the starting lineup tonight in Phoenix, though Erik Spoelstra did say before the game that they’ll be monitoring his vitals very closely. The schedule-makers didn’t do the Suns any favors, but some injury concerns from their next opponent may give them a bit of a break…

  2. Kobe Bryant is NBA’s leading scorer and D’Antoni could keep him there

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant had a pretty standard night for himself Friday against the Suns compared to his past couple seasons — 31 points on a not terribly efficient 10-of-24 shooting but getting to the line a lot (10-of-11 from the stripe). With that night, Kobe has averaged 26.9 points per game and moved past James Harden…

  3. J.R. Smith says Jerryd Bayless may have ‘little man’s complex’ after altercation

    Nov 17, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    J R Smith, Tony Allen

    Late in the second quarter of the Grizzlies’ win over the Knicks on Friday, J.R. Smith and Jerryd Bayless got into it briefly, and received double technicals for the extracurricular activity. Smith appeared to catch Bayless with an elbow after curling around a Rasheed Wallace screen, and Bayless retaliated with a shot to the face.…

  4. Royce White says he’s prepared to walk away from NBA over dispute with Rockets

    Nov 17, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Royce White

    The situation between Royce White and the Houston Rockets appears to getting worse before it gets better. And that’s if it gets better at all, a prospect that’s becoming less likely with each passing tweet and interview that White stubbornly continues to put out there. The short version of what’s going on is this: White…

  5. Lakers coaching search gets the Taiwanese animation treatment, and it’s spectacular (VIDEO)

    Nov 17, 2012, 10:28 AM EDT

    New Los Angeles Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni smiles during a media conference after practice at the Lakers' training facility in El Segundo, California

    The Taiwanese animation studio NMA likes to have some fun at the expense of the NBA from time to time, so it’s no surprise the folks there took on the biggest story of the early 2012-13 season: the Lakers search for a new head coach. L.A. definitely could have handled things better, from the timing…

  6. Video: Pistons dunk all over Orlando Magic (and still lose)

    Nov 17, 2012, 8:15 AM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Greg Monroe

    It’s the NBA, it’s all about the wins. That’s what matters. So for the record Orlando ended the game on a 5-0 run to win 110-106. But the Pistons still dunked all over them. Above you’ve got my favorite from Tayshaun Prince, plus a quality throw down from Jason Maxiell. Then below you can see some…

  7. Grizzlies knock Knicks from ranks of undefeated

    Nov 17, 2012, 2:32 AM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Rasheed Wallace

    Here’s a good one for your friends who think they know basketball, but maybe don’t follow the day-to-day happenings of the NBA all that closely. The best record in basketball now belongs to the Memphis Grizzlies, as they had no trouble taking care of the previously undefeated Knicks by a final of 105-95. New York…

  8. Steve Nash to miss at least another week with injury

    Nov 17, 2012, 1:38 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    The Lakers announced on Friday that Steve Nash would be out at least another week as he continues to recover from the non-displaced leg fracture that has sidelined him for the last seven games. Nash will miss new head coach Mike D’Antoni’s expected debut this Sunday at home against the Rockets, and will likely miss…

  9. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar immortalized with statue outside of Staples Center

    Nov 16, 2012, 11:01 PM EDT

    NBA Hall of Famer Abdul-Jabbar smiles as he is interviewed after a bronze statue of himself was unveiled in Los Angeles

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer, and he played on five championship teams as a member of the Lakers. He isn’t the first to be given a statue outside of the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but he is the latest to receive this honor. The statue was unveiled in a ceremony on…

  10. Kevin Martin receives warning for flopping (VIDEO)

    Nov 16, 2012, 10:04 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin, Kyle Singler

    Kevin Martin of the Oklahoma City Thunder became the third player to receive a warning for flopping under the NBA’s new policy, but his infraction was a little bit different than those who have been warned earlier this season. While J.J. Barea and Donald Sloan received similar warnings for infractions that occurred on the defensive…

  11. Andrew Bynum says he has setback with knee, timetable unchanged

    Nov 16, 2012, 7:36 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Ugh. Watch the video above and you can see Andrew Bynum no longer has his hair straitened. That’s almost the biggest news. He also talks about a setback with his knee rehab. Which is scarier than his hair for Sixers fans. Well, probably scarier. Earlier this week it was announced he would not return to…

  12. Raptors GM Colangelo talks about not drafting Andre Drummond

    Nov 16, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    How much does raw talent versus personality and concerns about work ethic when drafting someone? We all are great at looking back at a draft three or five years later and saying “how did we pass on player X” when at the time it’s not that simple. To use an easy example, any GM that…

  13. Kawhi Leonard out up to two weeks due to tendinitis in his left knee

    Nov 16, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    This is potentially a big blow to the San Antonio Spurs, though it’s one that is expected to only impact them for a relatively short time. Kawhi Leonard will be out 10-14 days due to quadriceps tendinitis in his left knee, the team announced in an official release. He won’t travel with the team on…

  14. Timberwolves say Brandon Roy’s injury issues this season were to be expected

    Nov 16, 2012, 4:59 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    The Timberwolves have been completely ravaged by injuries recently, perhaps more than any other team can claim less than three weeks into the season. But for at least one of their players, some missed time was to be expected. That’s the word from David Kahn and Rick Adelman, at least as far as Brandon Roy…

  15. Video: John Wall’s new commercial for Reebok

    Nov 16, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

    John Wall

    Go ahead and make your joke about John Wall joining Derrick Rose as the guy not on the court making ads for basketball shoes if you must. We’ll wait. Get it out of your system. Thing is, Reebok is in big with Wall and so you can’t blame them for putting out an ad. And…

  16. Report: 76ers near deal to buy Utah Flash as D-League affiliate

    Nov 16, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    A number of NBA teams have been buying D-League franchises, turning them into more of a true minor league — it’s never going to be like baseball because only a guy or two at a time might benefit from D-League style seasoning. But it makes sense if you are building a team to have that…

  17. Video: LeBron James leaves fan hanging after game

    Nov 16, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Ouch. You’ve got these insane court side seats to watch the Miami Heat knock off the Denver Nuggets, then after the game LeBron James high-fiving guys around you, comes over and… he’s talking to that guy next to you and then he’s gone. Then TNT and a bunch of blogs like this one replay your…

  18. Cavs Zeller cleared to play; Harangody out six weeks after surgery

    Nov 16, 2012, 2:17 PM EDT

    Tyler Zeller Cavaliers

    Tyler Zeller — who had been playing well off the bench for Cleveland until his face ran into the elbow of the Clippers D’Andre Jordan — has been cleared to return to the court, the team announced. Zeller suffered a concussion and a non-displaced fracture of his left orbital bone (the eye socket) from Jordan’s…

  19. Thunder likely to tweak Durant’s substitution pattern

    Nov 16, 2012, 1:57 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Scott Brooks

    In the Thunder’s loss to the Grizzlies on Wednesday, Kevin Durant played 44 minutes, and Russell Westbrook played 42. That’s some pretty heavy usage for the team’s two All-Stars, and it’s something that’s not likely to be sustainable over the course of an 82-game season. With James Harden‘s playmaking ability gone from the second unit,…

  20. The Knicks are legit. If they can keep this up is another question.

    Nov 16, 2012, 1:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are 6-0, the last undefeated team in the NBA — and it’s not a fluke. They are defending better than anyone in the league, giving up just 93.6 points per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata. (Anyone who says they just started defending this year wasn’t watching last year.) Their offense with Carmelo Anthony at…
