    Nov 13, 2013, 4:47 PM EST

    Diante Garrett

    We told you yesterday when the news broke that Utah was cutting lose Jamaal Tinsley that the Jazz could turn to the D-League for his replacement. They have.

  14. Report: ‘Mutual interest’ between Jazz and Jamaal Tinsley following Trey Burke’s injury

    Oct 16, 2013, 12:17 AM EST

    Jamaal Tinsley, Robert Sacre

    Jazz rookie Trey Burke was supposed to get the bulk of the minutes at the point guard position this season, but that was before he fractured a finger in a preseason game that required surgery and will sideline him for the next 4-12 weeks. (Burke says 4-6; his agent said 8-12) Utah is now pretty…

  15. UPDATE: Utah’s Trey Burke out 8-12 weeks after finger surgery

    Oct 14, 2013, 12:57 PM EST

    trey burke finger

    Trey Burke is still going to get the chance to run the Utah Jazz offense, but it likely will be 2014 before he gets the opportunity now. We got an update Monday on Burke’s broken finger from Saturday’s preseason game — he is going to need surgery to put pins in said finger. That was…

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    No sooner than I had picked Utah’s Trey Burke as my Rookie of the Year prediction, he goes and breaks a finger. Burke could be out 3-6 weeks, according to his father, but we don’t have anything official yet. Bottom line is he is missing the start of the season and could be out for…

    Jul 15, 2013, 6:25 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey talks with guard John Lucas III during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills

    If the Jazz are Riggin’ for Wiggins – and by letting two of their top players (Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson) leave in free agency and trading for hefty contracts (Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and, to a lesser degree, Brandon Rush) just to get draft picks, it sure seems like they are – they’ll still…

  19. Terrence Ross finishes half-court alley-oop (VIDEO)

    Apr 17, 2013, 1:39 AM EST

    Raptors guard Ross goes high for a dunk over Atlanta Hawks guards in Atlanta

    You remember Terrence Ross, right? The guy who won the dunk contest at the All-Star Game? The contest we all panned after the fact? Well, we may not have liked the exhibition but he won it because he can throw it down, something he got to show off against a porous Hawks transition defense on…

    LeBron James;  Jonas Valanciunas

    Toronto Raptors v New York Knicks

    The Raptors found themselves trailing by eight entering the fourth quarter in Milwaukee on Saturday, but some hot three-point shooting from John Lucas III got them back in it, and the game was tight the rest of the way.

    Feb 15, 2013, 1:30 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Boozer reacts after being called for a foul in their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    The Bulls have been an over-performing, scrappy team this year. Though Derrick Rose has missed every game rehabilitating his surgically repaired knee and the team has suffered other injuries to key players like Luol Deng and Joakim Noah that’s forced them out of action for stretches, the Bulls currently possess the East’s 5th best record…
