Portland Trail Blazers

  1. Brandon Roy leaves Blazers game, does not return

    Nov 14, 2010, 2:27 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    If the Portland Trail Blazers and Brandon Roy believe in signs, the universe has not exactly been warm and fuzzy towards them in the past 24 hours. A day after word came out that Roy would never really be the same player due to his cartilage being completely gone in both knees, Roy was forced…

  2. Brandon Roy doesn’t need surgery because his knees have no cartilage

    Well, good news Blazers fans — Brandon Roy doesn’t need surgery on his sore knees. The bad news is, well, the reason he doesn’t need surgery, as reported by Jason Quick at the Oregonian. There’s no meniscus left to operate on in Roy’s left knee. “Nah. None. Not in my right, either,” Roy said Friday.…

  3. Knee pain has robbed him of explosiveness, but Brandon Roy still starting

    Nov 11, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    Brandon Roy played just 20 minutes against Detroit Tuesday night. Roy the explosive athlete and game changer is missing, his left knee is bothering him to the point the Trail Blazers are having everything reviewed by a specialist in Los Angeles, with an answer expected maybe early next week. But when the Blazers hit the…

  4. Brandon Roy has fluid drained from knee, to see specialist

    Nov 10, 2010, 9:08 AM EDT

    Tayshaun Prince, Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy is not right. Ron Artest called it after defending him the other night. Roy conceded he had not been attacking as much, one of the best players in the Association at getting in the lane and drawing contact has been settling for more jumpers. He tried to play it off as part of…

  5. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where the basketball shooting gods smile on Indiana

    Nov 10, 2010, 2:57 AM EDT

    Shelden Williams, Brandon Rush

    What you missed while you were wondering if you could get fired for what you put on Facebook… Our game of the night had to be Paul Millsap looking like the best player in the league and the Utah upsetting the Heat in Miami. Read more about that here. Pacers 144, Nugget 113: Indiana won…

  6. Lakers prove they can showboat, too

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/yhYZU-pNJOs?version=3" height="205" width="320" /]

    Yesterday it was LeBron James and Dwyane Wade showing off for the Heat with a spectacular ally-oop dunk. The Lakers looked around and said, “We can do that” and sent out their two best athletes to prove it — Steve Blake and Pau Gasol. Okay, maybe not their two best, but they still put on…

  7. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Lazy Sunday

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while you were burning Wayne Rooney in effigy…. Lakers 121 Blazers 96: I was going to give you a great big recap of this game. I was going to do slide shows and video and show the intricacies of this matchup. I was going to give you something really enjoyable to read.…

  8. Blazers sign Sean Marks, so he’ll probably be injured soon

    Nov 6, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    marks

    Greg Oden. Joel Przybilla. Jeff Pendergraph. Fabricio Oberto. The list of Portland bigs on the shelf just gets bigger by the day. And now, they’ll add another player and hope he doesn’t go down inside of a month. CBSSports.com reports that the Blazers will sign Sean Marks to a non-guaranteed contract for the veteran minimum…

  9. Portland needs another center, bringing in everyone tall for workouts

    Nov 5, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Image (1) blazers_logo-thumb-250x275-12376.png for post 2181

    Fabricio Oberto has joined the long and storied tradition of Portland Trail Blazer big men who can’t play for them right now — Greg Oden, Joel Pryzbilla, Jeff Pendergraph. It’s not really funny, but if you can’t laugh about this run of luck you’d just be curled up on a corner of your bed crying.…

  10. Portland’s Fabrico Oberto retires due to heart condition

    Nov 4, 2010, 8:35 PM EDT

    Fabricio Oberto

    Two nights ago Fabricio Oberto left Portland’s game against Milwaukee due to dizziness. That led to tests to see what was the cause. It was a heart condition, recurrent palpitations, that Thursday forced him to retire, according to the team. “I made this decision to put my health and my family in front of basketball,”…

  11. Trail Blazers rookie Elliot Williams out for season with knee surgery

    Nov 4, 2010, 6:06 PM EDT

    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…

  12. Former stiff NBA centers find politics no easier than basketball

    UPDATE 11:26 pm: It was close, but the red tide was not enough to help out Chris Dudley in a blue state. He conceded the race tonight. 1:04 pm: Two former NBA centers were on the ballot last night, trying to win elected office. One lost, one had gone into overtime and is still waiting…

  13. The good, and the so bad it’s ugly surprises of the NBA season

    Nov 3, 2010, 12:31 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    We’re a week into the NBA season and some things are what we expected — the Lakers, Heat and Celtics are good; the Sixers are not; John Wall is dynamic; Kobe won’t talk about his injuries; and the Grizzles are making bad contract decisions. But there are surprises, and not to go all Forest Gump…

  14. Former NBA All-Star Maurice Lucas dead at 58

    Nov 1, 2010, 1:34 AM EDT

    mlucas

    Maurice Lucas, the five-time All-Star and a prototypical power forward in the NBA, has died at the age of 58. Lucas succumbed to bladder cancer he had been battling for years. He had been an assistant coach with the Trail Blazers — the team Lucas is best remembered for playing for — when the cancer…

  15. Greg Oden does not get extension, now playing in contract year

    Oct 31, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    greg_oden

    This isn’t really a surprise to anyone, but it is of note and makes this year interesting for him: Greg Oden will not get a contract extension from the Portland Trail Blazers, a team official confirmed to the Associated Press (and the Oregonian). He is the first No. 1 overall pick not to be offered…

  16. Rudy Fernandez to play in Madison Square Garden… but not as a Knick

    Oct 30, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    RFernandez-Jumper

    Rudy Fernandez finally gets to play a game in Madison Square Garden tonight. He’s wanted that, his agents have pushed for that all summer (pushed hard enough to get him fined, twice). Of course, they pushed for him to be a Knick, instead he comes in as part of the visiting Portland Trail Blazers. The…

  17. Rudy Fernandez tired of writing checks for things his agents say, appeals fine

    Oct 29, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    Rudy Fernandez has two agents: Andy Miller for his NBA deals and Gerard Darnes for European deals. Or does he? During the summer of his discontent, both Miller and Darnes said things about Fernandez wanting to get out of Portland that led Fernandez to be fined. In September it was Darnes, going on a Portland…

  18. Wolves have little hope of getting more compensation for Webster

    Oct 29, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Mwebster_wolves

    Caveat emptor. It’s the first rule of being a consumer, and the Minnesota Timberwolves ignored it. Now they stand little chance of getting any extra compensation from the Portland Trail Blazers in the Martell Webster trade. For those of you need to brush up on our Latin, caveat emptor means “let the buyer beware.” The…

  19. Minnesota asks league to investigate if Portland knowingly traded injured player

    Oct 28, 2010, 9:50 AM EDT

    Mwebster_wolves

    Martell Webster will be out the next six weeks, give or take, after having undergone surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back this week. If you recall, Webster was moved out of Portland to Minnesota this summer in a trade for the draft rights to No. 16 pick Luke Babbitt. Now Minnesota is…

  20. Portland looks pretty good, Phoenix… they should get better. Right?

    Oct 27, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    The Phoenix Suns scored just one point in the final 5:43 of this game. That’s why the Blazers won 106-92 and the final score belies how close this game was for three-and-a-half quarters. What happened? Well, for the last half decade, when the game got tight and the defenses serious, Phoenix had one of the…

  21. There is basketball outside of South Beach and L.A.: 10 things worth watching

    Oct 26, 2010, 9:17 AM EDT

    Wall_dunk

    Yes, the Heat have the three biggest stars we have seen on a team since the 1980s. Yes the Lakers are the two-time defending champs and may have more talent than any team in the league. We get it. You love them. We’ll talk about them plenty this season. But there is so much more…

  22. Blazers waive Jeff Pendergraph, keep Patty Mills on roster

    Oct 25, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

    2009 NBA Rookie Portraits

    The ying and the yang, the sorrow and joy of the NBA roster cuts…. Just 18 days ago Jeff Pendergraph was a sure thing for the Portland Trail Blazers, a second year center who may not have had a guaranteed deal but a guy the team liked and was getting minutes. With Greg Oden and…

  23. Training camps is almost over, time for Erick Dampier to make a decision

    Oct 20, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Image (1) dampier_layup-thumb-250x375-20442-thumb-250x375-20443.jpg for post 4245

    If one were cynical, one might think that free agent center Erick Dampier has taken his sweet time making a decision on where he will play this season just to avoid training camp. We are that cynical. But training camp is almost over, so it’s time and Dampier is about to choose a team. Probably…

  24. Fabricio Oberto talking with Portland, Turkish club about deal

    Oct 18, 2010, 8:09 PM EDT

    Fabricio Oberto

    Fabricio Oberto is a man who can get things done. That despite being a little to slow, not great on the boards and not quite good enough a shot. He plays a smart game — which is why he was a starter for the 2007 title-winning Spurs, his interior passing was a great fit with…

  25. Brandon Roy as Keyshawn Johnson: “I want the ball a lot more.”

    Oct 14, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    BRoy_post

    Two seasons ago, when Brandon Roy exploded onto the NBA scene the way those of us who watch a lot of Pac-10 ball expected he would, the ball was in his hands. You could define the positions however you want, Steve Blake was out there with him and may be the true point guard, but…
