This year’s Nuggets will be much better than last year’s version just by being healthy, but are they a playoff team?

Half his salary the first year is guaranteed, a sign he is expected to make the final roster.

There are not a lot of minutes at the guard spots in Chicago left to be had.

Good pickup for a third point guard.

One sounds more serious than the other.

The Denver Nuggets were 24-24 and hanging in the outside range of the playoff race when Ty Lawson broke his rib. The good news: Lawson is returning. Chris Dempsey of The Denver Post: Ty Lawson (rib) says he will return to action tonight be Minnesota. #Nuggets — Chris Dempsey (@dempseypost) March 3, 2014 He has…

It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

Ever since Andre Miller was banished by coach Brian Shaw, Denver has been looking for a solid point guard to play behind Ty Lawson. They finally found one on the Houston Rockets. Houston will send Aaron Brooks to Denver in exchange for Jordan Hamilton, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Hamilton, a 6-foot-7 wing player,…

Patrick Beverley was thriving as a member of the Rockets this season, starting in 24 of his 25 appearances and providing an energetic spark on both ends of the floor that positively impacted his team’s lineup. Beverley suffered a fractured hand injury in late December that was expected to sideline him for up to six…
J.R. Smith continues Knicks pattern of late-game mistakes with ill-advised three in loss to Rockets (VIDEO)
Jan 4, 2014, 8:00 AM EST
The Knicks had an opportunity to win their second straight game against a team that has performed much better than New York has to this point, but another bone-headed mistake in a season that’s been full of them derailed that chance. Tied with the Rockets with under a minute remaining, New York inbounded the ball…

Patrick Beverley, relative to an average starting point guard, is not crucial to his team. He can run a decent offense, but James Harden handles the ball more for the Rockets. He can hawk the ball on defense, but Dwight Howard drive Houston on that end. So, this news isn’t the end of the world,…

Jeremy Lin was playing his best basketball — at least since a couple weeks in New York a couple years ago — to start the season, having shown off a new-and-improved jumper (39 percent from three). He was a great spark plug sixth man. But he tweaked his knee back on Nov. 27 and has…

Our nightly look around the NBA, or what you missed while figuring out how to use lasers to mark the first down line in the a football game…. LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers. For my money right now he is the best power forward in the game. I’d rather have him over Kevin Love or…

First James Harden missed time with a foot injury, but he is likely to return Friday night as the Rockets host the Brooklyn Nets. Which is good because his replacement Jeremy Lin is going to miss a little time. Lin expected to miss two weeks with a Grade 1 sprain of his right knee, as…

NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

When the Houston Rockets tip off the season Wednesday night, Patrick Beverley will be out on the court as the starting point guard. Jeremy Lin will be in his warm-ups on the bench, waiting for his name to be called by coach Kevin McHale — Lin will be the sixth man for the Rockets, at…

Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Which player do you expect to have a breakout season? Kurt Helin: After spending an entire summer pumping up Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas, I’ll go with……

Now that the Rockets have Dwight Howard, the goal is to surround him and the rest of the team’s core with enough talent and depth to build a contending team. With that goal in mind, the Rockets have officially added two perimeter threats that should be able to take advantage of the space Howard creates…

Looking up and down the roster of the Houston Rockets, there are a lot of guys there with smaller deals or team options. That’s by design, of course, in order to maintain maximum financial flexibility with the hopes of landing a top-level free agent — like Dwight Howard, for example. The latest moves, announced by…
