injuries

  1. Corey Maggette may miss entire preseason

    Sep 28, 2010, 8:30 AM EST

    While everyone was looking at Andrew Boguts’ elbow, another Bucks injury slipped under the radar. Corey Maggette, who is counted on to be the scoring punch off the bench for Milwaukee (if not the starting small forward) underwent ankle surgery in July and may miss the entire preseason recovering, according to the Journal Times. “I…

  2. Andrew Bynum could miss the first month of the season

    Sep 26, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    Everyone had talked about Andrew Bynum missing the start of the season. And he will. Plus more — like maybe the first month. That’s what he said at media day, as reported by Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register. “I see it more towards the end of November,” Bynum said of his return. Bynum’s…

  3. Five years in, we still don't have a lock on Andrew Bynum

    Sep 25, 2010, 12:00 PM EST

    We need divisive figures in the NBA. There are so many players that simply are what they are. Lou Amundson, for example. Tim Duncan. Andrei Kirilenko. It’s those other players that make debates fun, and Andrew Bynum is certainly one of them. We’re entering our sixth season of Bynumite, and we still have little way…

  4. Mo Williams injures groin, slowed up for next several weeks

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:00 PM EST

    It has just not been Mo Williams best summer. On top of all the drama around the Cavaliers comes this news: Williams injured his groin in workouts Friday and will be slowed for a couple of weeks, according to the Associated Press. He’s already had an MRI and there is no tear, this is just…

  5. Kobe Bryant hasn't got time for the finger pain

    Sep 24, 2010, 11:10 AM EST

    It’s pretty easy to predict what Kobe Bryant is going to say about his index finger Saturday at media day: “It’s fine, it doesn’t affect what I do.” Ask a second question and he’ll laugh and say he answered that. A third and he glares at the reporter. But the finger is an issue —…

  6. Brad Miller sprains ankle, out a couple of weeks

    Sep 24, 2010, 8:55 AM EST

    Veterans will do anything to get out of training camp… Okay, that is not what happened here, although it is the result. Brad Miller suffered a sprained ankle during workouts and will be out for a few weeks, missing the start of Rockets training camp, according to at tweet from Jason Friedman of Rockets.com. It’s…

  7. Limit Yao's minutes, sure, but limit his games, too?

    Sep 18, 2010, 4:28 PM EST

    When news came out that the Rockets would be limiting Yao Ming’s minutes to 24 per game this season, it wasn’t a huge surprise, but it was worth discussing. Specifically, the rigid nature of the limitation was lauded because it avoids the kind of vague constructs that can lead to things like your president of…

  8. Raptors draftee Ed Davis has knee meniscus injury. That's not good.

    Sep 17, 2010, 7:14 PM EST

    This is the kind of thing you hate to hear right before camp, what the concern was when word leaked yesterday that Toronto draft pick Ed Davis injured his knee in a workout. The Raptors announced late today that it was a meniscus injury and that they are looking at treatment options. A torn meniscus…

  9. Bucks pick Darington Hobson may miss much of season

    Sep 10, 2010, 10:41 AM EST

    Darington Hobson is a crafty player — not an explosive athlete by NBA standards, but a guy who just makes the right pass, the right decision. Kind of a poor man’s James Harden. It’s why the Bucks drafted him in the second round. It’s why they are disappointed that a lingering groin issue that kept…

  10. Greg Oden is "on schedule to heal"

    Aug 21, 2010, 10:07 PM EST

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one. The Oregonian spoke with Greg Oden at a charity event this weekend. And after a season lost to a knee injury, Oden says that he is “on schedule to heal” and be ready for the start of the new season. John Canzano notes that the Blazers aren’t pushing…

  11. Joel Przybilla aims to be back for opening night

    Aug 8, 2010, 3:34 PM EST

    Joel Przybilla was part of the horrific wave of injuries the Blazers faced last year. After he broke his patella, the same injury that felled Greg Oden, he slipped in the shower and re-injured it. Most thought he would be out until at least the beginning of the new year. But in an interview with…

  12. NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics: Can Bynum make a difference?

    Jun 1, 2010, 6:04 PM EST

    For all the differences between the 2007-08 Lakers, the 08-09 Lakers, and this year’s Laker squad, one thing remains the same: The Lakers are hoping that they can get a significant contribution from Andrew Bynum, but aren’t sure he’ll be healthy enough to make one.  Bynum missed the 2008 NBA Finals due to knee surgery,…

  13. Derrick Rose a game time decision, but expect him to play

    Apr 26, 2010, 4:04 PM EST

    Derrick Rose sprained his ankle during game four, landing on Shaquille O’Neal’s foot. Loul Deng’s still fighting his way though a sore knee. Both are expected to play Sunday, but both are considered a game time decision officially. Rose missed practice Monday to have an MRI done. My guess as to what they were looking…

  14. Butler out for Mavs against Lakers

    Feb 24, 2010, 9:15 PM EST

    Via the Dallas Morning News, Caron Butler will miss tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers with a bad reaction to medication, causing illness. It’s an unfortunate miss for Butler, as one of the advantages of the trade for Butler and Haywood were the matchups against the Lakers. Butler provides a long two-guard to put…

  15. Ronnie Brewer out indefinitely with torn hamstring

    Feb 20, 2010, 5:59 PM EST

    Ronnie Brewer’s not having the best week. He gets traded from a stable, top-seed contending team in Utah to a Grizzlies team that, while improved, is still trying to stay above .500. But at least he’ll get more playing time, as Memphis is wafer-thin and needs a player of exactly his caliber and mold, right?…

  16. Kevin Garnett: "Brandon (Roy) looks hurt"

    Feb 20, 2010, 9:30 AM EST

    Brandon Roy gave his hamstring a go last night, the same hamstring that he said may keep him out the rest of the season. Roy knew his team needed him last night against the Celtics, and is trying to power through the injury. Indeed, in post-game comments, both Roy and head coach Nate McMillan tried…
