    Monta Ellis

    Here’s the latest on the injured Monta Ellis, courtesy of the Contra Costa Times’ Marcus Thompson: Warriors guard Monta Ellis is expecting to play tonight.

    UPDATE 3:14 pm: The reports are in from the specialist Ridnour saw and it is just a strained hamstring, nothing torn or more severely injured, according to a tweet from Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Hamstrings can linger if not fully rested, which seems to be the case here. Ridnour is with the team…

    Jermaine O’Neal played 21 minutes for the Celtics in their win over the Thunder. He pulled down nine boards but shot just 1-for-5. He has not moved well this season and admitted to Sherrod Blakely of Comcast Sports New England that he had a “minor procedure” done on his sore left knee. During the season.…

  4. Stan Van Gundy has a hard position on a wet spot

    Nov 7, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    I imagine having Stan Van Gundy yell a you must be one of the most uncomfortable situations you can find yourself in. The high-pitched, hoarse wail, the effusive finger-pointing, the incredulous glare, all of it must be pretty unpleasant to deal with after a long night. To that end, let’s hope the operations crew at…

    Andre Iguodala’s 252-game starting streak is in jepoardy. Iguodala strained his right Achilles tendon during the first half of the Sixers loss to the Cavaliers Friday night and did not play in the second half. After the game coach Doug Collins said that the injury was not serious. However, Iguodala’s status for Sunday at the…

    Nov 4, 2010, 9:32 PM EST

    marvin_williams

    UPDATE 9:32 pm: Tests showed Williams has just a bone bruise. We say “just” but those things hurt. Still, no structural damage and while he will sit out Friday he could be back as soon as Sunday. 4:33 pm: The undefeated Atlanta Hawks will be without starting forward Marvin Williams for Friday’s game against the…

    Nov 4, 2010, 6:06 PM EST

    elliot_williams

    We haven’t seen much of Portland Trail Blazers rookie Elliot Williams, and not we will not until next season. Williams dislocated his right patella during drills at the team practice facility, according to the Trail Blazers. He will have surgery and miss the rest of the season, according to the team. Portland took Williams out…

    Nov 4, 2010, 2:58 PM EST

    LeBron James

    According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, Heat forward LeBron James did not participate in Thursday’s practice because of a shin bruise James suffered while the Heat were playing the Nets last Sunday: LeBron James sat out the Miami Heat’s practice Thursday with what he calls a deep right shin bruise. But coach Erik Spoelstra plans…

    When Carlos Boozer fractured his hand — he just tripped over a bag, stop asking! — it was expected he would be out until the end of November. Today he got his cast off, which means he should be back… about the end of November. Sometimes those predictions are pretty accurate (unless Andrew Bynum or…

  10. Antawn Jamison’s knee becoming a bigger issue

    Nov 3, 2010, 11:03 AM EST

    Image (1) Jamison_Game_Bulls-thumb-250x177-9668.jpg for post 1435

    Antawn Jamison did not play for the Cavaliers Tuesday night in a loss to Atlanta, resting a gimpy left knee that has bothered him since the start of training camp. That’s not good on a few levels. It’s not good for a Cavaliers team that has now fallen to 1-3 on the young season. The…

  11. Josh Childress channeling his inner Kobe, playing with splint on finger

    Nov 2, 2010, 10:40 AM EST

    Childress_layup

    Josh Childress is out on the court for the Suns, he’s trying. He’s struggling, really only taking shots right at the rim (2.7 per game) and ignoring jumpers or threes (0.6 per game) unless he has to take them. It’s a far cry from the Childress who was a solid outside shooter in Atlanta before…

  12. Beaubois may be out until December, so says Nowitzki

    Oct 30, 2010, 9:55 AM EST

    roddybeaubois

    Dirk Nowitzki is not a doctor. He does not even play one on television. But we’re not getting a lot of reports from Dallas doctors on the recovery of Roddy Beaubois, so when Nowitzki says something, we listen. And he said something to Art Garcia of NBA.com. “Obviously, we’re all waiting on Roddy,” Nowitzki said.…

  13. Gilbert Arenas out first two Wizards games. At least.

    Oct 27, 2010, 2:44 PM EST

    Gilbert Arenas’ sprained ankle is not getting better — he was walking around in a protective boot Wednesday — and he will miss the first two Wizards games. At least. That according to a tweet from Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Arenas is going to see a doctor to see if anything more serious…

  14. Randolph out, Mozgov questionable for Knicks opener

    Oct 26, 2010, 5:49 PM EST

    arandolph_klove

    It’s just not a good day for the Knicks. The latest news is that Anthony Randolph will not be coming off the bench for them opening night (Wednesday) after spraining an ankle, and that starting center Timofey Mozgov is questionable after injuring his hip in practice. (Both notes via the twitter account of Howard Beck…

  15. Chris Paul to spend the season in a knee brace

    Oct 25, 2010, 5:15 PM EST

    When Chris Paul was healthy at the beginning of last season, he was all but unstoppable. In the month of November, Paul averaged 22.6 points, 9.9 assists, and 2.1 steals per game while shooting 58.4% from the field and 61.5% from beyond the arc. Even though the Hornets weren’t exactly lighting the league on fire…

    Mwebster_wolves

    UPDATE 3:21 pm: He had it — Webster went under the knife Monday to remove part of a herniated disc in his back that had been giving him problems, according to the Star Tribune. No word on a recovery timetable, but four to six weeks sounds likely. Someone on the Timberwolves needs to pick up…

  17. Thanksgiving return target for Andrew Bynum return to Lakers

    Oct 25, 2010, 9:17 AM EST

    Image (1) bynum-thumb-250x176-5609.jpg for post 96

    The Lakers have a soft start to the schedule — 20 of their first 28 are against teams that did not make the playoffs last season. No Thunder until January. Same with the Celtics. Miami isn’t a concern until Christmas. So if they are going to be banged up, now is the time. Andrew Bynum…

  18. Nick Collison will miss three weeks

    Oct 24, 2010, 4:33 PM EST

    collison

    Oklahoma City has put together one of the deepest frontcourts in the league with the draft and free agency. Over the summer they added Cole Aldrich to a lineup that already features Jeff Green, Nenad Krstic, Nick Collison, and super-energy block machine Serge Ibaka. And it’s a good thing they did. The Daily Oklahoman reports…

  19. DeMar DeRozan dislocates finger, it is gross

    Oct 23, 2010, 3:49 PM EST

    demar-derozan-finger

    In last night’s Raptors preseason finale, DeMar DeRozan dislocated his finger. I’m not talking like “oh, it got bent out of shape” like your cranky boss gets bents out of shape. I’m saying his finger was placed in a position to which it is not natural to point. I’m not kidding. It was gross. Seriously…

  20. Blazers will sign Fabricio Oberto

    Oct 23, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    fab

    The Portland Trail Blazers, as you may have heard, kind of have a problem with healthy bigs. Greg Oden, still out. Joel Przybilla, still out. Jeff Pendergraph, now out for the year. Basically, if I’m Marcus Camby, I’m investing in tape. Lots and lots of tape. And the Blazers, apparently, are investing in a new…

  21. Heat’s Mike Miller out until January

    Oct 22, 2010, 7:27 PM EST

    MMiller_heat

    Bad news on the thumb injury Miami Heat sharpshooter Mike Miller suffered in practice — he will be out until January, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. The injury was a fluke — Miller’s thumb just got caught in another player’s jersey and got pulled. He underwent a 45-minute procedure Friday to repair…

  22. Warriors Stephen Curry joins league’s long list of walking wounded

    Oct 22, 2010, 8:14 AM EST

    Image (1) NBA_curry.jpg for post 108

    The only day an NBA player is healthy is the first day of training camp. It seems especially true this season. Is there a team that does not have a couple guys already banged up and starting the season with a nagging injury? Add the Warriors and Stephen Curry to the list. He had to…

  23. Jermaine O’Neal’s many nagging injuries may delay his start to the season

    Oct 21, 2010, 10:32 AM EST

    JOneal_block

    Jermaine O’Neal was brought in to help carry the Celtics through the first months of the season, while Kendrick Perkins is still recovering from knee surgery. Fortunately, the Celtics brought in Shaquille O’Neal to back up the other O’Neal. Shaq got the start, put up 12 and 9 in 24 minutes, on 4 of 5…

    Dallas center Tyson Chandler may be limited the rest of training camp after injuring his hand in Wednesday night’s preseason game. But expect him to be ready to go when the Mavericks open the season next Wednesday against Chandler’s old team, the Charlotte Bobcats. Chandler cut his hand trying to block a Dwight Howard layup…

  25. Chuck Hayes to miss final two preseason games with sprained right ankle

    Oct 20, 2010, 7:22 PM EST

    Chuck Hayes

    Here’s the report, courtesy of FanHouse’s Sam Amick: Houston forward Chuck Hayes has a sprained right ankle and will miss the Rockets final two preseason games. Even though Hayes is extremely undersized for the center position and completely lacking anything resembling offensive skills, he’s carved out a successful niche for himself in the NBA thanks…
