Gerald Wallace, who brought a declining game but genuine nightly effort to the Celtics, has a torn meniscus and is likely done for the season. That is what coach Brad Stevens announced Friday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Stevens said Wallace had been playing through pain for some time and an MRI discovered the…

With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

Josh Smith is having the worst season of his career. Playing far too much small forward, a position he can handle only in select matchups, his defense has really fallen off. Though Smith defends power forwards well, his his lack of speed on the perimeter kills his ability to chase wings around screens. He’s also…

Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

With the game tied 111-111 and 10 seconds left in overtime, we didn’t really expect Boston’s Gerald Wallace to be the guy bringing the ball up the court. And when he did, we expected he would start to drive and pass it off. If not, he would settle for a pull-up jumper. But Wallace kept going,…

Paul George reportedly said he he doesn’t want to participate in the dunk contest, but he’s at least leaving the door open, if just a crack. George, via Scott Agness of Pacers.com (hat tip: Zach Harper of Eye on Basketball): When asked whether he had declined the offers, George said, “No, I haven’t declined. I’m…

It looked like things were not good when Ryan Anderson had to be carried off the court on a stretcher. We knew things were bad when the Pelicans said he would be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back. Now comes the news that Anderson will be out at least two months, and…

I’m feeling a little prophetic. It was late in the fourth quarter Friday night and Boston’s Jeff Green had just made a nice play, driving toward the rim and hitting the little five-foot running jumper to tie the game against Golden State at 97-97. But that left 11 seconds for the Warriors and I had…

You knew it wasn’t good when he had to be taken off the court in a stretcher, you just wonder now if the Pelicans playoff hopes were carted off with him. The Pelicans’ leading scorer Ryan Anderson will be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back, the team announced Tuesday. The injury occurred…

Scary moment in Boston on Friday, when the Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson was carted off the floor on a stretcher after a collision with Gerald Wallace of the Celtics. Anderson appeared to be talkative and moving all limbs throughout the process, and gave a thumbs up as he left the floor which we hope is a…

After this play, you just thought it was the Celtics’ night. Turns out not so much (the Pistons came back to win). Still, this was a fantastic execution by the Celtics. With o.2 seconds left on the clock the only way to score was a tip in, and Jared Sullinger rolls to the basket (without…

If you tried to use the words “moral victory” in the Knicks locker room Wednesday night the players’ reactions would have ranged from icy glares to a rant that would have earned them the same fine for swearing Boston’s Gerald Wallace was just given by the league. There are no moral victories in the NBA.…
