    Oct 20, 2012, 10:44 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut

    As the Warriors shut down Stephen Curry for the preseason, they have another concern on their hands. Andrew Bogut has not played. He has not scrimmaged. He has not participated in a basketball game since surgery. And while he’s spoken of making it back for the regular season opener, the Warriors have not given a…

  2. Still no timetable for Nene’s return

    Oct 20, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Nene Hilario

    Nene was traded from Denver for a number of reasons. Among them, his injuries which held him out constantly, and a perceived lack of effort. In Washington, he’s a huge part of what the Wizards want to do. They’re banking on him, especially with John Wall out two months. Problem is, there’s no telling when…

    Sep 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat Introduce Ray Allen

    For some reason, this just skated on through media day on Friday, and no one really picked up on it. From our own Ira Winderman at the South Florida Sun-Sentinel: Ray Allen said ankle issue likely will be ongoing throughout the season, something he will have to manage. He said he never wanted to let…

    Sep 29, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Say what you want about Chauncey Billups, but do not question the man’s dedication. The Clippers guard immediately got word out after his devastating Achilles injury that he would not be retiring. He’s kept that word up the entire way. He’s vowed to return this season. And at media day for the Clippers Friday, Billups…

  5. Iman Shumpert could be back in December

    Sep 23, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Iman Shumpert,  Ryan Anderson, Dwight Howard,  J.J. Redick

    The Knicks are going to miss Iman Shumpert early this season. Of that there can be no doubt. He’s got too much athleticism and defensive ability, and they need some youth on a roster with a world full of older guys. Shumpert’s out following ACL surgery and his prognosis has put in a wide variety…

  6. Mike Miller is (surprisingly) ready for training camp

    Sep 16, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's Miller shoots over Oklahoma City Thunder's Westbrook during the first quarter in Game 5 of the NBA basketball finals in Miami

    I’ll admit it, I was convinced that Mike Miller‘s three-point barrage against the Thunder in last year’s Finals was his way of blazing into glory, as in, off into the sunset. For two years, we’d watched Miller drag a body around that wasn’t just suffering in one part of his body, it was all of…

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    Really, New Orleans’ luck had been going too well. They draft Austin Rivers, he has surgery. They trade for Robin Lopez, now he has knee surgery. It’s fine, it’s just not the kind of thing you want right off the bat as the rebuilding project gets underway. From the team’s presser: The New Orleans Hornets…

    Jul 21, 2012, 9:08 AM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, Al Harrington

    Nuggets F Al Harrington was a huge part of the Nuggets’ success last season. He was the stretch forward they needed to space the floor, did some attacking on the offensive glass, and played surprisingly good defense, interrupting passing lanes and contesting in the post. But the Nuggets will be missing him for he beginning…

    May 5, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Avery-Bradley

    Avery Bradley has been a huge contributor for the Celtics this season, filling in for both Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen who have missed time with injuries. He’s a dogged defender and can attack the rim with his athleticism. He’s fought a shoulder injury all season, however, and on Friday, re-injured it against the Hawks.…

    May 4, 2012, 11:35 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The Bulls had everything going for them. They were the number one seed, they had beaten all the contenders, they had homecourt advantage, the best defense, one of the best coaches, a superstar. And then it all went wrong. In Game 3, they had a 14-point lead, had everything going for them. They had gotten…
