  1. Beaubois finally beginning to heal

    Dec 20, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    Beaubois

    After an extremely promising rookie campaign, Rodrigue Beaubois had a rough summer. First, he struggled with his shot in Las Vegas as he tried to turn himself into more of a two-guard. That wasn’t great. Then he broke his foot, which was much worse. The hyper-athletic combo guard hasn’t played a minute this season, and…

  2. Kobe Bryant has sprained pinkie, X-rays negative

    Dec 18, 2010, 6:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Philadelphia 76ers

    This will not affect Kobe Bryant. These injuries just don’t bother him. I don’t know if it’s because he just blocks out the pain or if his body just doesn’t react to damage like a Terminator. But this sprained pinkie for Kobe Bryant? Won’t bother him. Because he’s not human. But a sprained pinkie it…

  3. Flip Saunders says Wall may never be “painfree”

    Dec 14, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    John Wall Practice Dance

    Here’s the bad news for Wizards fans, and NBA fans in general, courtesy of The Washington Post’s Michael Lee: Saunders was more definitive about ruling out Wall, who has been kept out of practice and held back from running since finishing with just eight points, six assists and five rebounds against the Knicks. The Wizards…

  5. On Brandon Roy and the loss of control

    Dec 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    “I don’t think any of us can speak frankly about pain until we are no longer enduring it.” -Arthur Golden. My wife’s biggest problem with being pregnant has nothing to do with the nausea. She’s not bothered by her increasing lack of balance, nor the fact that she now craves fried food as if she…

  6. Not so much with the Mike Miller and the returning by Christmas

    Dec 11, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    Mike Miller had hopes of returning by Christmas in order to try and help the Heat with the Lakers. Even with the Heat playing better, there’s a significant need for Miller to get back on the floor. He’s a more reliable shooter, ball-handler, and defender than James Jones or Eddie House, and when the Heat…

  7. MRI negative for Tyreke Evans’ foot, Kings still can’t be happy

    Dec 11, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyreke Evans was scheduled for an MRI Friday, and the fear being whispered about was the dreaded “stress fracture.” A tiny crack in the bone is extremely painful, hard to heal, and could keep him out for months. Kings fans waited with baited breath to find out if their franchise player was done for a…

  8. We sure hope the Blazers have hit rock bottom

    Dec 4, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Portland Trail Blazers

    You know, when you think about it “Hey, it could always be worse” is kind of a cruel thing to say to someone.  Because if things go badly enough to justify you saying that to them? They likely haven’t just started going bad, or had one bad thing happen. Most bad things tend to happen…

    Nov 29, 2010, 7:11 PM EDT

    John Wall Practice Dance

    According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, both John Wall and Yi Jianlian will miss tonight’s Heat-Wizards tilt due to knee injuries.

    According to ESPN Chicago’s Nick Friedell, Bulls forward Carlos Boozer practiced for the first time in two months on Monday and may be ready to play against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau liked what he saw of Boozer in practice. “He looked fine.

  12. David Lee returns from gross elbow injury

    Nov 28, 2010, 3:00 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    David Lee had a scary injury when he was accidentally bitten by Wilson Chandler (Chandler lost a bunch of teeth in the collision). It was was also a really gross injury. You see, the human mouth has a ton of bacteria in it and getting sharp pieces of tooth stuck in your elbow tends to…

  13. Andrew Bynum back soon. Rinse, lather, repeat.

    Nov 27, 2010, 10:55 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers

    No, for real this time, guys! No, it’s different from last time. And the time before that. And that business about Thanksgiving. And the “progressing” stuff.  This is for real, this time. Bynum said Saturday after practice that he’s three weeks out from returning. That’s his projection, not that of the coaching staff, who are…

    NBA Draft Basketball

    Toronto forward Ed Davis, who was the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, has been assigned to the Erie Bayhawks of the D-League for what the Raptors are calling a “short-term rehabilitation and conditioning stint.” A knee injury has prevented the UNC product from making his NBA debut.

  15. Wall practices, still questionable for Tuesday’s game

    Nov 22, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    John Wall Practice Dance

    According to Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner, Wizards rookie guard John Wall practiced today with the team, but coach Flip Saunders says he wants to “see how his foot reacts to practice” before playing him against the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.

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

    UPDATE 10:43 pm: The recovery time on this is a lot worse than we first thought — depending on the surgery or other options, Haslem could be out until the All-Star break in February, if not longer. If you want an idea of how this impacts the Heat: Memphis outrebounded the Heat 16-5 after Haslem…

  17. Saturday Starting 5: Injury Damage

    Nov 20, 2010, 8:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Hey, so, you’re stuck with me on the weekends, so I thought we’d put together something you can count on. Every weekend here at PBT we’ll have the Saturday Starting Five. Five elements, chosen thematically (so I’m not just basically vomiting words onto a screen for you) and brought for discussion about the NBA. Today’s…

    Nov 18, 2010, 7:33 PM EDT

    greg_oden

    Blazers president Larry Miller is going to have to make some tough decisions regarding perennially injured center Greg Oden’s future over the next couple of years. On the one hand, it can’t be fun to devote resources to a player when you don’t know when he’ll actually be playing NBA basketball, let alone if he’ll…

    Nov 15, 2010, 9:45 PM EDT

    NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Phoenix Suns

    The Suns might as well just accept they won’t be rebounding ever again. Coming into their first season without Amar’e Stoudemire, Robin Lopez was supposed to be the pre-eminent big man for the Suns. Now he’s out “several weeks” according to a Suns press release with sprains of both his MCL and PCL in his…

  23. Heat’s Mike Miller wants to be back for the Lakers on Christmas

    Nov 12, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    MMiller_heat

    While the rest of us are filled with a slight dread thinking about Christmas — unless you’re one of those organized a—— who has finished their shopping already — Mike Miller is counting down the days like a six-year-old. He’s set that day as the new goal for his return to the Heat lineup. The…

  24. Sixers Lou Williams has separated shoulder, now day-to-day

    Nov 11, 2010, 3:48 PM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    Lou Williams has been the Sixers scoring spark off the bench, giving the Sixers 16.4 points per game with a true shooting percentage of 56.4 and a PER of 20. He has filled the role very well. But he has had a setback now, a dislocated AC joint shoulder that has him listed as day-to-day,…

    Nov 10, 2010, 11:59 PM EDT

    Joel Przybilla Yao Ming

    Yao Ming played physical basketball, the only way he really knows how. And the results seemed sadly familiar, if not that serious Yao played 6:14 of the first quarter — having a couple run ins with JaVale McGee of the Washington Wizards — and he left at that point with a tendon injury.  The run…
