Ryan Anderson has been out of the Pelicans’ lineup since January 3 due to a herniated disc in his neck, an injury suffered in a game against the Celtics. Conventional treatments were not getting the injury to heal, so he will undergo surgery next month to fix the problem, the team announced Tuesday. As you…

The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.
Feb 28, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT
The Pelicans’ new look roster had potential — if all the new pieces could meld and Anthony Davis could start to blossom they would be a very interesting team the second half of the season. Injuries undid that dream — Ryan Anderson led a list of key Pelicans who have had to miss significant time…

As the Lakers continue to look at ways to shed salary and potentially get under the luxury tax threshold this season, Jordan Hill is a player that many expect to be dealt before Thursday’s trade deadline passes. L.A. was in talks with Brooklyn a couple of days ago, mainly because the Nets have a $5.25…

More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now. 1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

Jason Smith has not been the ideal complement to Anthony Davis along the front line in New Orleans this season — when the two were on the court together this season the Pelicans were -1 point per 100 possessions (and both the team’s offensive and defensive ratings were pretty close to the season averages overall…

We told you a couple days ago the Pelicans wanted to bring in Luke Babbitt for the rest of the season, but there was one big hurdle in the way — agreeing to a buyout with his Russian team. That hurdle has been cleared. And soon Babbitt will be playing in New Orleans, reports Chris…

To answer your first question, Luke Babbitt has been playing for BC Nizhny Novgorod in central Russia. A city where the high temperature Thursday is predicted to be zero. You might imagine he’d like to get back stateside. And the Pelicans want to bring him back for the rest of the season, but the question…

The Memphis Grizzlies traded Rudy Gay and reached the Western Conference Finals. The Toronto Raptors traded Gay and are streaking toward home-court advantage in the first-round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Regardless of anything Gay did, his perceived value dropped considerably in the last two years. But might Gay be taking control of his own…

It looked like things were not good when Ryan Anderson had to be carried off the court on a stretcher. We knew things were bad when the Pelicans said he would be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back. Now comes the news that Anderson will be out at least two months, and…

Stephen Curry gets most of the headlines, and he earns them. Just remove Andre Iguodala from the rotation and the Warriors become pedestrian (as we have seen). Andrew Bogut anchors it all down. However we shouldn’t leave Klay Thompson off the list. When you start to look at the Sports VU camera data from the…
