Portland Trail Blazers

  1. Camby surgery expected to cost him about three weeks

    Jan 20, 2011, 2:16 PM EDT

    Camby_Nash

    This was about the best possible outcome when the words “Blazers” and “knee surgery” are in the same sentence. Marcus Camby’s knee surgery was deemed a success by the doctors and he is expected to miss about three weeks, the Blazers have announced. “We’re pleased with the outcome of today’s surgery, and look forward to…

  2. Second MRI review shows Marcus Camby with meniscus tear, surgery next

    Jan 19, 2011, 12:27 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns, Game 5

    When the official report came back on Marcus Camby’s MRI saying it was clean, we told you that the Blazers were wary and wanted their own team doctor to take a look at the films. Turns out, with good reason. A second review revealed partial medial meniscus tear in Camby’s left knee, and he will…

  3. Shocking: Blazers get good injury news. Marcus Camby’s MRI negative. But hold on…

    Jan 18, 2011, 3:33 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Things you thought you’d never see have come to pass — good injury-related news for the Trail Blazers. What’s next? Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria! Marcus Camby…

  4. Rudy Fernandez loves Portland and doesn’t want to be traded. Why would you think that?

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez

    Rudy Fernandez loves Portland. Loves playing basketball there. He told the Oregonian he doesn’t want to be traded he just wants to keep on being a Blazers. Why would you think otherwise? Oh yea, this summer when his agent demanded a trade and even threatened a holdout at one point. Fernandez’s people demanding a trade…

  5. Brandon Roy to have arthroscopic surgery on both knees

    Jan 13, 2011, 4:46 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Portland’s Brandon Roy — whose knees were already described as “bone on bone” — will go back under the knife for arthroscopic surgery, the team announced (via Blazers Edge). The surgery will happen next week but there is no official timetable for his return. “I’m trying to do the best thing I can to get…

  6. Brandon Roy still looking for answers for knee

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Brandon Roy is getting rest for his knee. Which is nice. But he also is meeting with doctors as he continues to look for long-term answers for the knee pain that has slowed him to average this season and has sidelined him for weeks. The Portland Tribune said one of the more radical plans is…

  7. Carmelo Anthony trade delay holding up other deals

    Jan 11, 2011, 8:38 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    There are 15 players — and maybe more — who would be changing teams if the proposed Carmelo Anthony trade moves out of its current state of limbo and becomes reality. That’s a lot of players, and the Anthony trade has become a dam, holding up a number of other smaller trades, according to multiple…

  8. LeBron James at center? Get used to it.

    Jan 11, 2011, 12:01 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

    LeBron James has played plenty of power forward over the years. He’s played point guard (or de facto point guard, anyway), shooting guard and small forward, too. He’s done everything. Except play center. That was until Sunday, when he played it late in the Heat’s overtime victory against the Trail Blazers — and Miami outscored…

  9. LeBron James: “I’ve kind of accepted this villain role”

    Jan 10, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Portland Trail Blazers

    LeBron James was the dominant force on the court as the Heat beat the Trail Blazers Sunday in Portland. It was the kind of performance — 44 points total, 19 in the final three minutes of regulation and overtime, plus 13 rebounds — that we saw a lot of when James was a Cavalier. Except…

  10. Caron Butler out for season, underwent knee surgery Tuesday

    Jan 4, 2011, 3:41 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Mavericks have been keeping this under wraps officially, but it was expected. Caron Butler underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday to repair a ruptured right patellar tendon, according to Art Garcia of NBA.com. It’s a sad thing to see happen to one of the better people in the NBA. And it’s going to be tough for…

  11. Brandon Roy considers knee operation, chance to be next Tommy John

    Jan 3, 2011, 5:32 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    It’s called the Tommy John surgery because the long-time pitcher was the first to have a ligament from somewhere else in his body put in his elbow then return to be a quality major league starting pitcher. How about the Brandon Roy surgery? According to the Portland Tribune (via CBS Facts & Rumors), Roy is…

  12. Deron Williams thinks the Jazz have a lot of work to do

    Dec 31, 2010, 8:46 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    There was a lot of frustration in the Jazz locker room Thursday night after Utah lost to Portland for the second time in a week. They feel like things are slipping away. The Jazz are not bad (22-11, four seed in the West), but they are clearly not elite in the way the Spurs, Lakers…

  13. Video: Did Deron Williams call bank on this?

    Dec 31, 2010, 8:46 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    After Tyreke Evans dramatic game winner Wednesday, our own Matt Moore started a debate on twitter about should that shot be better defended? Should you put up at least a token defense on those long end of quarter or end of game shots? Sometimes it doesn’t matter. The Trail Blazers did more than just put…

  14. Blazers say Brandon Roy out “indefinitely” with sore knees

    Dec 30, 2010, 10:32 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 10:32 pm: Before the Blazers game against the Jazz Thursday night, Roy spoke with reporters. Below are some of his quotes, via the amazing Ben Golliver of Blazers Edge: “Right now there’s no timetable. It’s just until we can find a solution for this problem.” “(Sitting out the season is) a possibility. That is…

  15. 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…

  16. Could Nate McMillan end up coaching Charlotte?

    Dec 27, 2010, 9:56 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Portland Trail Blazers - Game 6

    Paul Silas will have his first game as the interim head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats Monday, replacing Larry Brown. But already there is speculation about who will replace Silas next season (Silas does not want to give up the job so easily). Marc Stein of ESPN threw out an interesting name. Look for Blazers…

  17. Roy tries to be patient, admits he may never be pain free

    Dec 23, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Brandon Roy has never been patient with his body and injuries. He pushes to get back — maybe faster than doctors want. But not this time. He is out for a while (at least a week) resting his left knee. Roy admitted the Oregonian he may never be pain free but this time he is…

  18. Chris Webber: Brandon Roy should sit the rest of the season

    Dec 22, 2010, 3:35 PM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    Brandon Roy’s knees are not good. He may well think playing alongside Andre Miller is the issue with his slipping performance but his knees and lack of explosiveness are the bigger problems. He is sitting out the next week, but NBA TV analyst and former player Chris Webber (speaking with Art Garcia) said he thinks…

  19. Brandon Roy to sit out another week

    Dec 22, 2010, 12:46 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Remember how Brandon Roy was going to be shut down for three games and then come back… well, if the vacation is going well why not extend it? During a video live-streaming pregame event for the Trail Blazers game Tuesday, team General Manager Rich Cho said Roy was taking another week off (via Blazers Edge).…

  20. Rudy Gay suspended for Saturday; George Karl, Andre Miller each get fined

    Dec 18, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    NBA VP of basketball operations and official Scrooge Stu Jackson was a busy man Saturday handing out lumps of coal to players and coaches he thought had been naughty. Rudy Gay has been suspended one game for his body check from behind of Luis Scola in the Grizzlies loss Friday night to the Rockets. The…

  21. LaMarcus Aldridge makes a Michael Beasley poster

    Dec 18, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Think of this as just a fun little time killer while we wait for the Orlando Magic to hammer out a deal that brings them two aging, very expensive players with long term deals as a way to improve their title chances… Lamarcus Aldridge and Rudy Fernandez ran a pretty little wing pick-and-roll where both…

  22. Portland shuts down Brandon Roy for next three games

    Dec 17, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Roy’s now chronically sore knees — the left one is flaring up this time — has now caused him to be shut him down for the next three games, the team announced today. Roy will be re-evaluated next week. Roy has been in and out of the lineup with knee issues this season, and…

  23. Report: Brandon Roy doesn’t like fit with Andre Miller

    Dec 17, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    Andre Miller is a classic point guard — a guy who wants the ball in his hands to create shots for himself and others, to set up the offense. Brandon Roy is part of a new breed of elite two guards — a guy who wants the ball in his hands to create shots for…

  24. Report: Knicks have asked about Joel Przybilla

    Dec 16, 2010, 2:57 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Depth is clearly an issue for the Knicks — they went with an eight-man rotation technically against the Celtics, but it was really six as that is how many played 10 minutes or more. Every starter played at least 36 minutes. Big minutes will mean wear and tear on guys like Raymond Felton and Amar’e…

  25. 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…
