    Feb 16, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Teams are talking trades. Not really seriously, however. We told you the other day that meaningful trade chatter was down this season and tried to present a few reasons — fear of the unknown of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and teams not taking on any new salary because of it for one. All the…

  2. Consulting surgeon on Brandon Roy says he has 1-2 years left

    Feb 15, 2011, 12:35 PM EST

    Brandon Roy

    It’s that bad. Brandon Roy wants back in — he’s had both knees operated on one month ago and now gotten the go ahead to practice with the team. Because he is as competitive as anyone in the league he wants to play and push the Trail Blazers into the playoffs. But the Blazers have…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Force was not with the Suns on Star Wars night

    Feb 14, 2011, 12:51 AM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    What you missed while watching the story of Oedipus acted out by vegetables and voiced by Billy Dee Williams…. The Celtics holding on for a win over Miami and a Magic win over the Lakers were the games of the night. We threw is a bonus Wizards win over the Cavs story at no extra…

  4. Nate McMillan isn’t as sold on Roy’s speedy return

    Feb 9, 2011, 2:20 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Portland Trail Blazers - Game 6

    Brandon Roy is ready to come back and play this weekend. He has been cleared to practice and if there is one thing we know from Brandon Roy’s history it’s that he wants back on the court. Yesterday. Blazers coach Nate McMillan is a more patient man. And he may force Roy (and Marcus Camby)…

  5. Video: Rudy Fernandez with the best assist you’ll see this week

    Feb 8, 2011, 3:35 PM EST

    Rudy Fernandez

    For a guy that spent all summer trying to land somewhere else, Rudy Fernandez looks like a guy having some fun in Portland. Along those lines, we bring you Fernandez’s circus assist from last night. It was another thing that went right for the Blazers on a night when they could seem to do no…

  6. Nicolas Batum denies saying Derrick Rose can’t play defense

    Feb 8, 2011, 3:16 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Talking to the media Thursday night after the Trail Blazers knocked off the Bulls, Portland’s Nicolas Batum said the game plan was to have Andre Miller go right at Derrick Rose because he can’t play defense — except now he says he didn’t say that at all. A couple people reported last Monday night, including…

  7. Derrick Rose shows off his crossover, dunking skills

    Feb 8, 2011, 8:47 AM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Is there a better crossover in the NBA than Derrick Rose‘s? There are some other wicked ones out there, but none better for me. This little highlight clip shows off both the crossover and the dunking skills of Rose during the Bulls upset loss to the Trail Blazers Monday. Rose’s crossover is one move that…

  8. Portland’s Brandon Roy will return to games this week

    Feb 7, 2011, 10:14 PM EST

    Brandon Roy

    So much for taking the remainder of the season off to rest. Brandon Roy has been cleared by Doctors to return to practice just three weeks after double knee surgery and he should be back playing with the Trail Blazers by this weekend, according to Jason Quick of the Oregonian. “For sure against Detroit (Sunday),…

  9. Another Blazer big man was injured. We’re out of jokes.

    Feb 6, 2011, 9:06 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    There shouldn’t be anyway this is true, but sadly, for Blazer fans, it is.  In the course of sending the Cavaliers to the worst single-season losing streak in NBA history, Samardo Samuels‘ elbow made contact with Blazer center Dante Cunningham‘s face. He started bleeding and was taken back to the locker room for examination. He…

  10. Andre Miller would be fine if Portland wants to trade him

    Feb 3, 2011, 11:41 AM EST

    millertrade

    Andre Miller is a little tired of living in the 1990s. Which is really what living in Portland is like. With the Trail Blazers realizing it’s time to rethink and restart the team building process everyone is on the trade block. That includes Miller, a quality veteran point guard who could help a lot of…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another Wizards road loss sets up a “showdown” in Cleveland

    Feb 2, 2011, 7:34 AM EST

    John Wall

    What you missed while wondering why you were watching highlights of Super Bowl media day…. Hornets 97, Wizards 89: For the first time in 306 games Emeka Okafor has to sit one out, and Jason Smith steps in and tries to Wally Pip him. Smith had 20 points on 11 shots, established himself early (10…

  12. The Trail Blazers have plans to start over

    Jan 29, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    It was inevitable, really. The promise held in the 2008 and 2009 seasons for the Portland Trail Blazers have vanished in a blur of surgical knives, press releases featuring the words “out for the season” and a crowd of players in tailored suits on the bench.  Joel Przybilla was the lucky one. He only hurt…

  13. Trail Blazers Batum’s MRI negative, he’s day-to-day

    Jan 28, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    At this point, shouldn’t the Trail Blazers just invest in their own MRI machine? The Blazers got some good news in their latest MRI results that show Nicolas Batum has a bone bruise on his knee but nothing more serious, the team announced Friday morning. He is listed as day-to-day. Batum was injured in the…

  14. Brandon Roy thinks his knees will never be 100% again

    Jan 26, 2011, 7:02 PM EST

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy was well on his way to NBA superstardom after an 08-09 campaign that saw him average 22.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game with an impressive PER of 24.08. Then the knee injuries came. Roy still averaged 21.5 points per game last season, but missed 17 regular-season games, saw his efficiency…

  15. Knicks look to add big man such as Joel Przybilla or Marc Gasol

    Jan 26, 2011, 12:58 PM EST

    Image (1) marc-gasol-thumb-250x210-17949.jpg for post 3610

    Okay, sure, the Knicks would love to trade for Carmelo Anthony. We’re sick of talking about it, too, but we are legally obligated to throw that in any time the Knicks and trades are mentioned in the same paragraph. But that’s not the only trade the Knicks are considering, according to Mitch Lawrence at the…

  16. LaMarcus Aldridge’s X-rays, MRI negative, just a hip bruise

    Jan 25, 2011, 9:48 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    UPDATE 9:48 pm: The results of LaMarcus Aldridge‘s MRI are in and it was negative, too. This is just a hip bruise. I can say “just,” those things hurt. But in the world of Trail Blazers injuries, that isn’t one. Not really. Good news that Aldridge will keep going and will not miss time. 1:43…

  17. Greg Oden still wants to “dominate”

    Jan 23, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

    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,…

  18. Brandon Roy wants to come back this season. Please, Brandon, no.

    Jan 22, 2011, 10:24 PM EST

    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…

  19. Video: Rudy Fernandez and the running hook shot

    Jan 21, 2011, 10:28 AM EST

    0920-rudy-fernandez-300

    There are some shots that guys have spent countless hours in the gym perfecting. Ray Allen‘s shooting stroke. Kobe Bryant‘s stop-and-pop jumper from the elbow. Then there are the improvised circus shots where a guy just throws it up and it’s like Christmas when it drops. Which brings us to Rudy Fernandez last night, who…

  20. Camby surgery expected to cost him about three weeks

    Jan 20, 2011, 2:16 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 19, 2011, 12:27 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 18, 2011, 3:33 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:14 AM EST

    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…

  24. Brandon Roy to have arthroscopic surgery on both knees

    Jan 13, 2011, 4:46 PM EST

    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…

  25. Brandon Roy still looking for answers for knee

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    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…
