    Apr 28, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    The injury news for the league keeps getting worse. After Derrick Rose‘s injury against the Sixers, Knicks guard Iman Shumpert went down with a nasty looking injury in the third quarter of Game 1 vs. the Heat. Shumpert’s knee appeared to buckle off of no contact on a routine jump landing, and he immediately crumpled…

    Derrick Rose

    Update: Via Bulls PR: “Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and he is out for the remainder of the season.” If you want more details, Aggrey Sam has them at CSNChicago.com.

    Feb 17, 2012, 6:34 PM EDT

    Casey Smith, Delonte West

    From the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn: #mavericks announce Delonte West has surgery to repair fractured right ring finger. No timetable for his return. Another bad break for him West, a tough, versatile player who was a key piece of the 66-win 08-09 Cavaliers, has had his career go through some extreme ups and downs since he…

    Jan 8, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Eric Maynor

    UPDATE 5:26 pm: The Thunder have announced that Eric Maynor is out for the season with a torn anterior cruciate that will require surgery. After watching the video below, that should not seem like a huge shock. It was nasty. This is a blow to the Thunder. Sure, Russell Westbrook is young and can play…

  7. Beasley out three games with foot sprain

    Jan 7, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    The AP reports that Michael Beasley will miss three games with a foot sprain he sustained in Minnesota’s Friday night loss to the Cavaliers. Presumably, Derrick Williams will start in his place. Beasley has taken a huge step backwards this season after a promising 2011 campaign. He’s shooting just 39 percent from the field and…

  8. The Imperative: Kobe Bryant and the variance of injury

    Jan 7, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant chews on his jersey during NBA game in Los Angeles

    The imperative is an element of urgency based off of observation with some evidence to back it up. But like most anything in the NBA, the imperative is rarely black and white, cut and dried. Basically I’m hedging in case Bryant averages 35 points per game over the next seven games.  Kobe Bryant scored 39…

  9. Blazers were aware of Roy’s knee issues when they signed him to a max contract

    Jul 2, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Former GM Kevin Pritchard went on John Canzano’s radio show in Portland to talk about his time and experience with the Blazers before he was (randomly) fired, and his thoughts on the league going forward. During the interview, Pritchard left an interesting bit of information out there regarding the decision to grant Brandon Roy his…

  10. Shaq comes back! Then gets hurt.

    Apr 3, 2011, 8:57 PM EDT

    balance bracelets Shaquille O'Neal

    Hey, so remember earlier when we told you Shaq might play Sunday night? Yeah, good news, he did play! Looked good to start out, too, making a layup and swatting away a layup. Things looked great. You know how this ends, right? Shaq came up limping against the Pistons in the first half, and did…

  11. Shaq will definitely maybe try to play tonight. Perhaps.

    Apr 3, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    shaquille o'neal Celtics

    The Celtics could use Shaquille O’Neal back. Anytime. Really, whenever you feel up to it, big guy. Danny Ainge said maybe Sunday. Some estimates were for April 1st, which of course didn’t work out.  They need him with Nenad Krstic out with  bone bruise and Jermaine O’Neal trying to find his legs and the team…

  12. Joe Johnson day-to-day with thumb injury

    Mar 27, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks

    Joe Johnson suffered a sprained thumb in the Hawks’ playoff-clinching win over the Nets Saturday night and will miss Sunday’s game in Cleveland at least while being evaluated. Afterwards, Johnson was pretty clear on the fact he wouldn’t be rushing back from injury this late in the season, especially after clinching the playoffs. “Maybe if…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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,…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. Report: Brandon Roy considering shutting it down for season

    Dec 30, 2010, 3:22 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Brandon Roy will not suit up Thursday night for the Trail Blazers. The team is expected to release more information on him sometime on Thursday. That’s all we know officially. But the rumors are swirling. Roy is considering shutting it down for the rest of the season, one of several options on the table right…

  22. Kevin Garnett leaves game with right calf injury

    Dec 29, 2010, 11:18 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett

    UPDATE #3 11:18 pm: Here is a post-game quote from Doc Rivers on Garnett, via the Associated Press: “It is a muscle injury, not a knee,” Boston coach Doc Rivers said. “You always worry when a guy goes down without anyone around him, because those always seem to be severe injuries, so that was the…

  23. Brandon Jennings out 4-6 weeks with foot fracture, surgery

    Dec 20, 2010, 2:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) Jennings_celebrate-thumb-250x260-10187-thumb-250x260-10188.jpg for post 3511

    We tried to warn you something bad was afoot, so to speak, but this was worse news than expected. And very bad news for a Bucks team that finally got Andrew Bogut back and was trying to get back into the playoff chase. Brandon Jennings will be out four to six weeks when an MRI…

  24. Brandon Jennings gets MRI on sore foot, will miss at least one game

    Dec 19, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings injured his foot on Wednesday night against San Antonio. He played through it that game and was on the court Saturday even though it still hurt. The injury robbed him of his usual burst. Which is particularly bad when you are matched up against Deron Williams. Jennings told the Journal-Sentinel he is going…

  25. Rajon Rondo out a couple of weeks with ankle injury

    Dec 16, 2010, 4:04 PM EDT

    Rondo_injured

    It looked bad when it happened Wednesday night — Rajon Rondo wanted to drive the lane against the Knicks, went right and tried to plant for a cut and his ankle just rolled. About as far as an ankle can roll. He came back in and played, but those things are often worse the next…
