    Feb 1, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless tries to defend against against Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    It was a perfect storm of bad for Memphis — they trade their leading scorer Rudy Gay, who is out shopping for a much more extensive winter wardrobe, but his replacements (Tayshaun Prince, Ed Davis and Austin Daye) have yet to arrive. Then you are on the road against a rested Oklahoma City team who…

    Jan 28, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Golden State finally had some good news on the ankle front — Andrew Bogut returned from ankle surgery and looked pretty good with 12 points and 8 rebounds in 23 minutes — then this happened. Stephen Curry rolled his surgically-repaired right ankle during the third quarter. It was described as a mild sprain at first,…

    Jan 25, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Denver Nuggets

    Raptors fans, you could be getting Andreas Bargnani back soon. You feel good about that? Toronto was 4-17 when he played and 12-10 since he went down. It’s not hard to guess how Toronto fans feel about him and his return. Nonetheless, Bargnani is getting closer to a return from the elbow injury that has…

    Jan 9, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Thunder on top, but it’s close

    Jan 7, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Atlanta Hawks

    To be honest, you could have ranked the top three in this week’s PBT NBA Power Rankings and been fine. I’m giving the top spot to the Thunder this week because I think they’d beat the Clippers or Spurs in a seven game series right now. But not easily. 1. Thunder (26-7, Last week ranked…

    Toronto Raptors Andrea Bargnani reacts after hitting a shot during their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    If Andrea Bargnani takes his time coming back from an elbow and wrist injury will anyone in Toronto care? Probably not after this.

    Sep 6, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Jamaal Magloire thanks the fans before their last home game against the New Jersey Nets in their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    The Toronto Raptors don’t really need another big man. They already have Andrea Bargnani, Amir Johnson, Ed Davis, Jonas Valanciunas, Quincy Acy. Bargnani is the scorer, the young guys are going to get minutes because they need to develop. But the Raptors think Jamaal Magloire might be a good veteran presence in the locker room, an…

    Toronto has some players in place, a coach, but they also have a distinct need — they want an established front line wing player. They have set their sights high. And they will give up their No. 8 overall pick to get it. So reports Marc Stein at ESPN. And that’s why the Raptors have…
