    Mar 9, 2011, 12:20 PM EDT

    andrew bogut

    Andrew Bogut’s shot has not been right this season. He shot 57.7 percent two years ago, 52 percent last season, then 48.3 percent this season. It’s all about his elbow, the one that bent in a way god never intended late last season. Bogut is still finishing at the rim at a very good 62.2…

  2. Brandon Roy has knee operations, called successful

    Jan 17, 2011, 9:46 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Doctors will tell you any surgery you wake up from is a successful surgery. So, on multiple levels Brandon Roy’s double knee operation today was a success. Operations on both knees took place on Monday, cleaning up issues as best they can, and now the recovery and rehabilitation begins. There is no set timetable for…

  4. 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…

  5. No surgery for Brandon Bass. For now.

    Brandon Bass has seen the doctors, and the doctors have seen him. And his films. And for now… nothing is happening, according to the Orlando Sentinel. Coach Stan Van Gundy said team physician Craig Mintzer and another doctor have reviewed the scans of Bass’ knee, and the doctors aren’t convinced that the burly power forward has a…

  6. Tyreke Evans considering laser procedure for foot, would sideline him three months

    Dec 28, 2010, 2:29 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, John Salmons

    Tyreke Evans has been battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot all season, a painful condition that is slowing his game and frustrating him. Not that it really showed on Monday when he dropped 32 on the Clippers, but he has missed games and seen a foot specialist due to the pain. Pain that has…

    Vince Carter’s knee still isn’t good, but it isn’t so bad as to need surgery either. That’s the good news from the doctors in Phoenix who looked at an MRI and decided what Carter needs is some rest and rehab, according to a tweet from Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Having his knee scoped…

  8. Vince Carter considering knee surgery, would miss month

    Dec 21, 2010, 9:05 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Orlando Magic

    Vince Carter has yet to suit up for the Phoenix Suns — and it could be a while before he does. Carter is considering having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, according to Paul Coro in the Arizona Republic. His left knee has bothered him all season and this would, in theory, clean up the…

  9. David Lee’s elbow still gross, still hurting

    Dec 15, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    When David Lee’s elbow collided with Wilson Chandler’s face, we thought Chandler got the worst of it — and he didn’t get off lightly, unless you’re a masochist and four hours of dental work sounds like fun to you. But that’s a whole lot better than what Lee has gone through, as Lee detailed in…

  10. Toronto’s Reggie Evans has foot surgery, to miss 8 weeks

    Dec 1, 2010, 9:52 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Reggie Evans

    That could have been much worse. Toronto Raptor Reggie Evans has surgery on his broken foot Wednesday and is expected to miss just two months, the Raptors announced Wednesday night. That would bring him back in mid-January. Evans had a non-displaced fracture of the fifth metatarsal on his right foot. He has surgery on his…

    Joe Johnson, the Atlanta Hawks leading scorer and go-to guy in the clutch, will miss 4-6 weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow, according to a tweet by Hawks public relations guy Arthur Triche.

  12. David Lee is out of the hospital, still out a couple weeks

    Nov 18, 2010, 8:16 PM EDT

    David Lee

    Thursday morning, eight days after the initial injury, David Lee walked out of a Bay Area hospital. Which is strange because when Golden State’s Lee’s elbow collided with the face of the New York Knicks Wilson Chandler going for a rebound, it looked like Chandler got the worst of it. By far. Chandler lost a…

  13. Lakers’ Theo Ratliff has knee surgery, out 4-6 weeks

    Nov 16, 2010, 2:05 PM EDT

    Ratliff_Laker

    Theo Ratliff was supposed to be some insurance for the Lakers, a veteran big man they could use a few minutes a game until Andrew Bynum returned, a guy who could get rebounds and body up (read: foul) opposing bigs in some matchups. But not for the next month or so. Ratliff had his knee…

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

    Nov 13, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    BRoy_Celebrates

    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.…

    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…

    Oct 27, 2010, 9:34 AM EDT

    barbosa_shoes

    Leandro Barbosa wanted Toronto to be a new start for him. And on the court it kind of has been, he has been one of the bright spots for Toronto this preseason. But the past keeps haunting him. Last season he missed a couple months with a wrist surgery. Doctors took another look at that…

  17. Chris Douglas-Roberts out for a month after eye surgery

    Oct 26, 2010, 5:32 PM EDT

    Douglas_roberts

    Chris Douglas-Roberts will miss the first month of the Bucks’ season after having to undergo eye surgery Tuesday. CDR was poked in the eye during a Sunday practice, causing the eye to swell nearly shut by Monday. The damage was severe enough to warrant surgery, noted HoopsWorld’s Alex Kennedy on twitter. It’s a setback for…

  18. Tracy McGrady still concerned about his knees

    Sep 29, 2010, 8:05 PM EDT

    You may want to believe, but until we see evidence on the court that Tracy McGrady is right you have to think of him as still damage goods. Tracy McGrady likes to push himself pretty hard (all the great ones do) but has had to pull back at Pistons camp and made the following comment…

  19. Magic guard Jason Williams to have knee surgery

    Sep 29, 2010, 6:01 PM EDT

    The Magic brought Jason Williams back to provide some extra depth at point guard, but he won’t be doing that for a while. Williams is going to have arthroscopic left knee surgery tomorrow and will be out until right around the start of the season, Stan Van Gundy told the media today (as tweeted by…

  20. Corey Maggette may miss entire preseason

    Sep 28, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    While everyone was looking at Andrew Boguts’ elbow, another Bucks injury slipped under the radar. Corey Maggette, who is counted on to be the scoring punch off the bench for Milwaukee (if not the starting small forward) underwent ankle surgery in July and may miss the entire preseason recovering, according to the Journal Times. “I…

  21. Andrew Bynum put off surgery, now will miss training camp recovering. He's maturing?

    Sep 23, 2010, 12:43 PM EDT

    We told you yesterday that the Los Angeles Lakers were “hopeful” Andrew Bynum would be ready to go by the start of the season. Kevin Ding of the Orange Country Register put another spin on that today. Bynum put off having offseason surgery on his right knee so he could play – and we’re not…

  22. Clippers Craig Smith has knee surgery

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:14 AM EDT

    Even rhinos need to have their knees scoped out now and again. Craig Smith — the rhino, as he is known — had arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday the Clippers announced. The surgery was a success and a minor operation with a four to six week recovery time. Which will have him back in time for…

  23. Mo Evans has minor knee surgery

    Aug 3, 2010, 3:16 PM EDT

    Summer, ’tis the season for knee surgery. Add Atlanta’s Mo Evans to the long list of players getting some knee work done this summer. He had arthroscopic surgery to repair knee cartilage damage last week, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. It was minor surgery, one that should have the Hawks guard back in plenty…

  24. Andrew Bynum has "successful" knee surgery

    Jul 28, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum finally has had surgery on the knee he dragged through the NBA playoffs last season. The surgery took place on Wednesday and the team termed it the standard “successful.” As Hoopsworld’s Eric Pincus notes, any surgery you wake up from is successful, so Bynum passed that test. Bynum had a torn meniscus, suffered…

  25. Minnesota's Jonny Flynn has hip surgery, will miss start of the season

    Jul 27, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    Bet you didn’t see this coming: the Minnesota Timberwolves could be short point guards to start the season. Jonny Flynn, who started 81 games for the Timberwolves last season at the point, will likely miss the start of this season after having hip surgery, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo.
