  1. UPDATE: Utah’s Trey Burke out 8-12 weeks after finger surgery

    Oct 14, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    trey burke finger

    Trey Burke is still going to get the chance to run the Utah Jazz offense, but it likely will be 2014 before he gets the opportunity now. We got an update Monday on Burke’s broken finger from Saturday’s preseason game — he is going to need surgery to put pins in said finger. That was…

  2. Andrew Bogut cautious about believing the hype surrounding Warriors

    Oct 12, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    The Warriors overachieved last year by reaching the second round of the playoffs, and did so without a full complement of healthy players. The expectations are even higher entering this season, with the addition of Andre Iguodala in free agency and most of the key pieces anticipated to be 100 percent by the time the…

  3. Harrison Barnes likely to miss Warriors’ next two preseason games in China due to foot injury

    Oct 12, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    barnes white sleeved

    Harrison Barnes started 81 games as a rookie for the Warriors last season, and his explosiveness and athleticism on both ends of the floor were among the reasons the team exceeded expectations by getting to the second round of the playoffs. Health has been an ongoing concern in Golden State in recent years, so with…

  4. Harrison Barnes, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala competing for two starting spots

    Oct 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Ever since the Warriors signed Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes has been pegged as Golden State’s sixth man. To his credit, Barnes said he’d be fine with that role. Barnes had an up-and-down rookie year, but he broke out in the playoffs by averaging 16.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. That’s the type of performance…

  5. Harrison Barnes likely out Wednesday with foot issue

    Oct 8, 2013, 6:50 PM EDT

    barnes white sleeved

    Harrison Barnes put together a good rookie season then burst on the scene with the fan favorite, bombs-away Warriors during the playoffs (when he averaged 16.1 points a game). For his next trick this season all he has to do is show improvement to his game while meshing with newcomer Andre Iguodala who largely plays…

  6. Stephen Curry’s new post-three dance (okay, not really)

    Oct 8, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Isaiah Thomas

    Stephen Curry is not going to actually break this out in a game, because if he did even injured Mo Williams could beat him down the court. But this new ad made my chuckle, so I pass it along. Also, nice to see Curry getting some endorsements — the guy is poised for a breakout…

  7. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Oct 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Last season: The Nuggets finished the regular season with the best home record in the league, and a franchise best 57 wins, good for the three seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Then, they were bounced out of the first round by the Golden State Warriors in six games. George Karl won Coach of the…

  8. Andre Iguodala was throwing down alley-oops Monday

    Oct 8, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Andre Iguodala is a good fit on the wing for Golden State. For one, they need someone who actually defend on the perimeter (no offense Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson) and Iguodala brings that. Plus, he can finish in transition — and the Warriors love to run. Look at how that worked out here. We’ll…

  9. Mark Jackson’s challenge to Stephen Curry: Commit fewer turnovers

    Oct 7, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson, Stephen Curry

    Stephen Curry is coming off of a breakout season for the Warriors, one in which he averaged career-bests in points, assists, and minutes played. But Warriors head coach Mark Jackson is a master motivator, and he wants Curry to continue to improve. So he provided him with a little project. The challenge he posed to…

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Durant reacts during NBA Global Game against Fenerbahce Ulker in Istanbul

    Last season: The Thunder finished the regular season with a record of 60-22, which was good for the number one playoff seed in the Western Conference. Thanks to the unfortunate knee injury that occurred in Game 2 of the team’s first round playoff series against the Rockets, however, OKC quite literally limped to the finish…

  11. Lakers’ Xavier Henry’s half court buzzer beater (VIDEO)

    Xavier Henry, Dewayne Dedmon

    Kobe Bryant is in Germany (he was going to get around to telling Mike D’Antoni he was going but it slipped his mind). Pau Gasol and Steve Nash were watching in suits. So the Lakers had to turn to some of the guys fighting to make the team/get minutes to step up against Golden State…

  12. Randy Foye’s internal organs are all in the wrong place. Yes, seriously.

    Oct 4, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    Randy Foye

    Randy Foye is a veteran sharpshooter, last season in Utah he was taking 5.3 shots from beyond the arc a game and hitting 41 percent of them. He is entering his eighth NBA season, can play a little point in a pinch but mostly he is there to space the floor and knock down bombs…

  13. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    0515_wiggins_0

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

  14. Battier says it will take time for Sports VU camera info to trickle down to players

    Oct 3, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Shane Battier

    We’ve talked about this a few times recently — new high-tech Sports VU cameras are going into all 29 NBA arenas this year. These cameras track every movement on the court by every player and send them to a computer for processing that opens up a world of potential data. You can measure and compare…

  15. Andrea Bargnani playing a lot of small forward? Bad. Idea. Jeans.

    Oct 3, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Andrea Bargnani

    Carmelo Anthony thrived last season on offense for the Knicks playing the four, the power forward spot — he could take bigger guys outside and beat them off the dribble, if teams went small against him he could post up. But that creates some roster challenges for Mike Woodson this season because Andrea Bargnani, Amar’e…

  16. Sixers’ managing owner defends decision to trade for Andrew Bynum

    Sep 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    When the Sixers traded for Andrew Bynum before the beginning of last season, it appeared to be a calculated risk worth taking at the time. Bynum was coming off of an All-Star season where he averaged a career-best 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds, and despite his history of injury, the team wasn’t going anywhere with…

  17. Harrison Barnes hopes to participate in this year’s dunk contest

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes had more than his fair share of amazing slam dunk highlights during his rookie season with the Warriors — just check out the clip above, or this collection of the team’s best plays from last year for visual confirmation. It’s rare that we get the best in-game dunkers wanting to participate in All-Star…

  18. Report: Stephen Curry leaving Nike for Under Armour endorsement deal

    Sep 27, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    Under Armour has been trying to break bigger into the NBA market for a while and they lined up some nice stars — Brandon Jennings, DeAndre Jordan — who fans know but who have never really broken into the big time. That has changed. Stephen Curry is leaving Nike for a new Under Armour deal,…

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Kyrie Irving became the youngest All-Star since LeBron James, but the Cavaliers were decidedly awful throughout the year, finishing 24-58. Only the Bobcats were worse both offensively and defensively, Injuries took a major toll (more on that below), but the season never looked promising at any point, regardless. On the bright side, Dion…

  22. Danilo Gallinari says he could be back around Thanksgiving

    Sep 25, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari, Zach Randolph

    Most pundits (myself included) expect a big drop off in Denver this year. Gone is the glue of Andre Iguodala to hold the defense together, gone is the veteran coach George Karl (replaced by the capable but untested Brian Shaw), and they are without Danilo Gallinari, who is key to their offense. It was obvious…

  23. Stephen Curry beat at P.I.G. by his father Dell (VIDEO)

    Sep 23, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors guard Curry catches a break against the San Antonio Spurs in the second overtime period during Game 1 of their NBA Western Conference Semifinals basketball playoff series in San Antonio

    You can bet this is going to come up around the Thanksgiving dinner table. Stephen Curry — the guy generally considered the single best shooter in the NBA today — played a fast-paced game of P.I.G. with his father Dell at the #SplashBrothers Clinic at Warriors training facility (Klay Thompson and his dad, former No. 1…

  24. Shaq doesn’t care for the Pelicans name, might not know what a pelican is

    Sep 22, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Basketball star Shaquille O'Neal of the

    Shaquille O’Neal is not overly fond of the Pelicans nickname. This is not an uncommon opinion. Shaq’s reasoning for not liking the new name, though? Pretty spectacular. “It’s a terrible name. I told Charles on TNT, I don’t think I’ve seen a Pelican before. Pelicans, are they that big white bird? I would had named…

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    This summer Danilo Gallinari has been doing his knee rehab in Italy, because… well, if you could choose where to do your knee rehab work wouldn’t you choose Italy? Gallinari partially tore his ACL back on April 4, and on that day the Denver Nuggets playoff dreams tore as well. When he returns he will…
