  1. Carmelo Anthony trade delay holding up other deals

    Jan 11, 2011, 8:38 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 11, 2011, 12:01 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 10, 2011, 9:37 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 4, 2011, 3:41 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jan 3, 2011, 5:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 31, 2010, 8:46 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 31, 2010, 8:46 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 30, 2010, 10:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 30, 2010, 3:22 PM EST

    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…

  10. Could Nate McMillan end up coaching Charlotte?

    Dec 27, 2010, 9:56 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 23, 2010, 11:55 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 22, 2010, 3:35 PM EST

    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…

  13. Brandon Roy to sit out another week

    Dec 22, 2010, 12:46 AM EST

    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).…

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

    Dec 18, 2010, 5:20 PM EST

    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…

  15. LaMarcus Aldridge makes a Michael Beasley poster

    Dec 18, 2010, 12:12 PM EST

    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…

  16. Portland shuts down Brandon Roy for next three games

    Dec 17, 2010, 3:18 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 17, 2010, 10:49 AM EST

    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…

  18. Report: Knicks have asked about Joel Przybilla

    Dec 16, 2010, 2:57 PM EST

    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…

  19. On Brandon Roy and the loss of control

    Dec 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EST

    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…

  20. Andre Miller calls league “soft” after suspension

    Dec 8, 2010, 10:22 PM EST

    Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, Andre Miller

    Andre Miller did not play Tuesday night for the Portland Trail Blazers — the first time in 632 regular season games, or since the Matrix Reloaded. The reason is a blindside check on Blake Griffin. If he could have, he would have had his stick up on that one and slammed him into the boards.…

  21. Portland sends Luke Babbitt to the D-League

    Dec 8, 2010, 9:30 AM EST

    2010 NBA Draft

    Another NBA first round pick is headed to the D-League for some seasoning, a trend that is becoming more and more common. Portland’s Luke Babbitt is the latest, according to Sam Amick of FanHouse. The reasoning is simple — you get better at basketball by playing basketball and right now Babbitt is out of the…

  22. Blazers Andre Miller, Clippers Brian Cook get suspensions

    Dec 6, 2010, 6:44 PM EST

    millertrade

    For a game that wasn’t all that close, there was some chippy play in the Clippers and Blazers Sunday tilt. Chippy enough for the league to take notice and hand out its form of justice — Los Angeles’ Brian Cook has been suspended two games for a harsh flagrant two on Joel Pryzbilla (he flattened…

  23. Blazers president, players back Nate McMillan

    Dec 6, 2010, 9:38 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Portland Trail Blazers

    It doesn’t sound like Nate McMillan is going anywhere. After a weekend of speculation that Nate McMillan’s seat was getting warm after a slow start for the Trail Blazers and a recent six-game losing streak, team president Larry Miller threw water on that fire. Miller went on 95.5 FM in Portland’s pregame show and sounded…

  24. Nate McMillan admits he may not be reaching Blazers, a step on the road to unemployment

    Dec 5, 2010, 10:55 PM EST

    Phoenix Suns v Portland Trail Blazers - Game 6

    Sunday night the Blazers are getting healthy at the expense of the Los Angeles Clippers, which is a good team to get healthy against. It will snap a six-game losing streak that has seen some ugly play out a Blazers team many thought would rebound this season. There are injury issues in Portland — Gregg…

  25. We sure hope the Blazers have hit rock bottom

    Dec 4, 2010, 12:05 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Portland Trail Blazers

    You know, when you think about it “Hey, it could always be worse” is kind of a cruel thing to say to someone.  Because if things go badly enough to justify you saying that to them? They likely haven’t just started going bad, or had one bad thing happen. Most bad things tend to happen…
