    Feb 4, 2011, 6:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    According to Ira Winderman of the Flordia Sun-Sentinel, Dwyane Wade will start against the Charlotte Bobcats tonight. Wade suffered a lower back contusion after colliding with Dwight Howard during Thursday’s Heat-Magic game, and his status for the game against the Bobcats had been questionable. The last time the Heat played the Bobcats, Wade scored 31…

  2. MRI reveals elbow bruise for Dwyane Wade, Wade listed as day-to-day

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:50 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    UPDATE SATURDAY 4:50 p.m. EST: Heat fans, you can exhale. An MRI came back negative for Wade’s elbow, and he’s listed as day-to-day. What that means for the Heat’s game against the Thunder Sunday is anyone’s guess, but at least it’s not time for abject panic.   So Dwyane Wade was ruled out of Friday…

  3. Amar’e sprains knee, questionable Sunday versus Detroit

    Jan 29, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Atlanta Hawks

    In last night’s fracas-filled loss to the Hawks, Amar’e Stoudemire had a pretty scary moment. Marvin Williams, who would later be the culprit in the fight, accidentally landed and rolled up under his knee. In case you hadn’t heard, any time you hear the words Amar’e and “knee,” Knicks fans start spasming uncontrollably. Amar’e walked…

  4. Wade to miss game with wrist sprain

    Jan 28, 2011, 7:24 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Miami Heat

    According to Ira Winderman of the Flordia Sun-Sentinel, Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat will miss tonight’s game against the Detroit Pistons due to a right wrist sprain he suffered in the second half of the Heat’s loss to the New York Knicks on Thursday.

  5. Brandon Roy thinks his knees will never be 100% again

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:02 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy was well on his way to NBA superstardom after an 08-09 campaign that saw him average 22.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game with an impressive PER of 24.08. Then the knee injuries came. Roy still averaged 21.5 points per game last season, but missed 17 regular-season games, saw his efficiency…

  6. Greg Oden still wants to “dominate”

    Jan 23, 2011, 2:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    You’re going to read a lot more positive pieces about Greg Oden in the coming months. The poor guy’s a restricted free agent this summer and he and his agent have to try and put as positive a spin on his situation as possible. So while Oden in his two previous season-ending knee surgeries (geez,…

  7. Brandon Roy wants to come back this season. Please, Brandon, no.

    Jan 22, 2011, 10:24 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Brandon Roy hopes to return this season, as he told press before their game Saturday night. Brandon, we love you. Brandon, no. Brandon Roy is not going to be 100%, probably ever again, but he’s not going to be anywhere close to it this season. It makes sense that he wants to come back. After…

  8. Bosh out, Wade questionable as Miami tries to stop skid

    Jan 22, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Denver Nuggets

    The Heat are now on a four game losing streak, and the easy answer is injury, which has kept at least one of the Triad out since their first loss of this streak against the… ahem… Clippers. And against Toronto in Miami this evening, it would appear they’re going to be short at least one…

  9. Mo Williams out 2-3 weeks

    Jan 19, 2011, 6:28 PM EDT

    Mo Williams

    Somehow “when it rains, it pours” doesn’t quite do justice to the season the 2010-11 Cavaliers are having. The Cavaliers were the worst team in basketball when they were healthy and starting Mo Williams, Daniel Gibson, Anthony Parker, Antawn Jamison, and Anderson Varejao. Now Varejao is out for the year, Gibson is set to return…

  10. With only seven players, things somehow get worse for Cavaliers

    Jan 15, 2011, 10:37 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Cavaliers only had eight players available tonight for their game in Denver. Daniel Gibson, Christian Eyenga, Anthony Parker, Anderson Varejao, Joey Graham, and Leon Powe are all out with injuries. The Cavs lost by 50 to the Lakers the other night. Things can’t get worse, right? Mo Williams left the game and went to…

  11. LeBron sits out against Bulls Saturday night

    Jan 15, 2011, 7:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    UPDATE 7:35 pm: It’s official, LeBron is out for a second straight game due to his sprained ankle suffered against the Clippers last Wednesday night. This really shouldn’t be a surprise, Miami is expected to be cautious during the regular season when it comes to injuries with its big three. It just puts more on…

  12. Jermaine O’Neal seeks second opinion before deciding on surgery

    Jan 15, 2011, 6:35 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    I’ve had three family members go through cancer in the last few years. So the fear of an athlete when he goes to a doctor to find out if his season is over or not doesn’t exactly pull as much on my heartstrings as it used to. But just because it pales in comparison to…

  13. Dirk may return against Grizzlies Saturday

    Jan 15, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavericks need Dirk Nowitzki back, like for real, like now. And on Saturday, if CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger is on point, they could get him back. Berger reports that Rick Carlisle admitted Saturday they could see the Big German Machine back in action after the Mavericks have lost seven of nine without him, tumbling from…

  16. Anderson Varejao out for season as Cleveland’s year gets worse somehow

    Jan 9, 2011, 7:26 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics- Game Three

    The Cleveland Cavaliers today announced that Anderson Varejao has torn a ligament in his ankle and will miss the rest of the season. The Cleveland Plain-Dealer Varejao will undergo surgery to repair the ligament. Which begs the question: Can the fates hate this franchise more? They suffer through all of their history, get LeBron James, suffer…

  17. Lakers’ Matt Barnes to have knee surgery

    Jan 8, 2011, 7:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    UPDATE 7:21 pm: Barnes will undergo surgery early next week for a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee. He is expected to be out at least two months, which means a March return (before the playoffs). This will mean more minutes for Ron Artest and likely Luke Walton behind him. The Lakers may also…

  18. Haslem targeting late March return

    Jan 4, 2011, 6:50 PM EDT

    Image (1) haslem_sad-thumb-250x140-18298.jpg for post 3694

    According to the Associated Press’ Tim Reynolds, Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem‘s rehab from a torn ligament in his left foot is “on schedule,” and Haslem is hoping to return to the team in late March. Haslem’s injury took place on November 20th. The Heat lost the game he was injured in, lost three of…

  19. Brandon Bass considering surgery

    Jan 2, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Orlando Magic

    Brandon Bass has been one of the stronger parts of the Orlando offense this season. Having a legit power forward next to Dwight Howard and someone who could score in the low-post and shallow mid-range fit in really well with the Magic. Now it’s possible that he could be out for several months as he…

  20. Mavs fear serious injury for Caron Butler

    Jan 2, 2011, 9:59 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    Caron Butler went down with the scariest of all injuries last night, clutching his knee before he even landed. An MRI Sunday will reveal what exactly Butler suffered, but the truth is, these things very rarely work out well. A calf like Kevin Garnett and you know it immediately. A shoulder can be bad, but…

  21. Big surprise, Kendrick Perkins wants to return earlier than expected

    Dec 26, 2010, 10:46 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Media Availability

    Kendrick Perkins doesn’t strike me as a patient type guy. He seems pretty insistent in what he wants and thinks. So you can expect a pretty severe clash between he and the coaching staff in the next few weeks. You see, Perkins’ expected return date was late January, early February, somewhere in there. Perkins, though,…

  22. Rick Carlisle to miss game after knee injury

    Dec 25, 2010, 7:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    The Mavs have announced that Rick Carlisle will miss Monday night’s Mavericks game in Oklahoma City after knee surgery over the Christmas holiday. Carlisle’s having a rough year, health wise. He missed a game in preseason after fainting in practice. He actually spent some time in the hospital during that episode, and now will miss…

  23. Dwyane Wade will play against Lakers

    Dec 25, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat

    After some question as to whether Dwyane Wade would be good to go with his knee hurting. Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that coach Erik Spoelstra says Wade is “fine” and will play versus the Lakers Saturday afternoon. The Lakers will likely look to go at Wade on the offensive end, as…

  24. Chris Webber: Brandon Roy should sit the rest of the season

    Dec 22, 2010, 3:35 PM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    Brandon Roy’s knees are not good. He may well think playing alongside Andre Miller is the issue with his slipping performance but his knees and lack of explosiveness are the bigger problems. He is sitting out the next week, but NBA TV analyst and former player Chris Webber (speaking with Art Garcia) said he thinks…

  25. Kendrick Perkins getting closer to return

    Dec 21, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins

    The good news just keeps on coming for the 22-4 Boston Celtics. According to Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston, Celtics starting center and defensive specialist Kendrick Perkins is participating in on-court activity and may be able to return to full-contact practice by January: Center Kendrick Perkins participated in his most heightened on-court activity since undergoing…
