Celtics injury updates: Kelly Olynyk out till All Star break at least

Hair today, gone tomorrow. The Celtics have picked up a couple of wins recently but they've just lost one of their young weapons for a little while.  Looks like Kelly Olynyk will be sidelined for at least a few weeks. Bass Finally Gets a Chance to Improve Trade Value with Olynyk Sidelined - Celtics Blog - Boston.com The Celtics frontcourt took a bit of a hit Thursday night in Portland when Kelly Olynyk went down with a sprained right ankle. The second-year big man is back in Boston now undergoing tests on the injury, but Brad Stevens told reporters in Denver on Friday night that Olynyk...

Elijah Millsap signs 3-year contract with the Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz front office has appeared to be making some nice loyal moves to the beloved Millsap family. According to Millsap's agent, Daniel Hazan (as reported by RealGM), "Elijah Millsap has reached an agreement to sign a three-year contract with the Utah Jazz." No exact salary numbers of the contract have been anounced yet but I would expect it to be around the league minimum up to about $1-1.5 MM per year. His contract is guaranteed for the rest of the 2015 NBA season and is reported to be team options for the following two seasons. Excellent flexible move here made by the Jazz! This...

Mason Plumlee, in a bit of a slump, but still the Nets bright light

Mason Plumlee is in a bit of a slump.  In the last four games, he's averaged 11 points and three rebounds.  He has been in foul trouble, averaging 3.5 personals in only 22 minutes of play.  He does continue to shoot well, going 18-of-25 over that stretch. Still, the seven-footer is the Nets brightest light, a low first round pick in a bad draft who's taken off, both literally and figuratively.  As Howard Megdal of USA Today writes, "Plumlee has emerged." In an interview with Megdal, Plumlee talks about how he has capitalized on his athleticism. "People talk about athleticism. It's a...

Avery Bradley has been one of the NBA's best three-point shooters since mid-December

After Avery Bradley got off to an excruciatingly slow start this season, Boston Celtics fans began to question whether or not the front office should've signed him to a four-year, $32 million extension last summer. Now the 24-year-old shooting guard is putting the sleeper hold on those doubters with his recent play. In Bradley's last 16 games, he's hitting a ridiculous 48.3 percent of his threes, which is third in the league since December 23. After starting off the year at an underwhelming 29 percent from downtown, I wrote that it was important for fans to relax: Avery Bradley is off to...

Thunder vs. Cavaliers: Oklahoma City Can't Come Together In Loss Against Cleveland

The Thunder fall back to .500 with their second road loss in a row, this time to the Cleveland Cavaliers, 108-98. Box Score | Fear The Sword After an ugly loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night, the Oklahoma City Thunder were looking to come into Sunday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers with a big win on ABC's first national showcase game of the season.  Unfortunately they fell apart as the game went along and fell to the Cavs, 108-98. What is your initial reaction to todays's result? The dual between the last two league MVP's did not disappoint.  Kevin Durant was the second...

Bulls vs. Heat recap: Hassan Whiteside triple double gives Bulls another bad home loss

Though the Heat do have some residual talent from their championship runs, they were still another below-.500 team that the Bulls should've taken care of easily. But in their last home game before a 6-game stretch on the road (the Disney trip, the Circus-trip's little sister), it was another stinker of a performance ending in a 96-84 loss. This harkened back to those halcyon days of...um...earlier in the week, when the Bulls were listless and requiring of a team meeting. The team followed with very impressive back-to-back wins over the Spurs and Mavericks, but this probably should've been...

A Reunion in Name Only: Lakers vs. Rockets Preview

With no Dwight Howard or Kobe Bryant, the main story line going into games between these two franchises is absent as well. Dwight Howard returns to Los Angeles to face the team he spurned, and the man who has led them for 19 years. That would have been the main narrative tonight when the Houston Rockets visit Los Angeles to take on the Lakers. This is (again) not to be however, because Howard was once again injured in the Rocket's previous game. The last time the Rockets played against LA, the center formerly known as Superman missed the contest with an injured knee, and an undrafted rookie...

Sixers face big test in Pelicans with Davis

NEW ORLEANS - We will find out Monday if the 76ers can do it again. The Sixers dominated the New Orleans Pelicans from start to finish in a 96-81 victory on Jan. 16. Some may argue that the victory came with an asterisk because the Pelicans were without their two best players in Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday.
