Marvin Williams walked through the hallways at EnergySolutions Arena on with a white sneaker on his left foot and a medical boot on his right. After having surgery on his right Achilles over the summer, the Jazz forward expected some setbacks along the way, but the soreness that kept him out of Wednesday’s game against the Pacers came at a particularly inopportune time. “We’re kind of getting on a roll right here,” he said. “Obviously, I have to sit out so it kind of messes things up a little bi...

SALT LAKE CITY — With Derrick Rose done for the season after surgery on his right knee Monday morning, it’s time for the Bulls’ front office to look in the mirror and ask itself some tough questions. Is grinding out the rest of the season with a roster that talent-wise can’t go toe-to-toe with the Heat and Pacers worth passing up a chance to get better for the future? By moving some pieces, the Bulls can go from a possible fourth or fifth seed in the Eastern...
WALTHAM, Mass. -- Boston Celtics rookie forward/center Kelly Olynyk, who suffered a sprained ankle during Friday's visit from the Indiana Pacers, did not participate in Tuesday's practice session while receiving treatment for the injury. "Nothing new; same as before," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said when asked for an update. "When he did it against Indiana, I was told approximately two weeks, whatever that means. I don’t know if that’s give or take a week, or give or take a couple days.
Boston Celtics rookie Kelly Olynyk (right ankle sprain) and veteran swingman Keith Bogans (ill) did not travel with the team to Atlanta for Saturday's tilt with the Hawks. Olynyk sprained the ankle in the first half if Friday's loss to the Pacers. He downplayed the severity of the injury while meeting with reporters after the game, but limped noticeably leaving the arena.
CHICAGO -- Tom Thibodeau offered a simple explanation on Saturday when asked why he decided to put Derrick Rose back into Saturday night's win over the Indiana Pacers in the fourth quarter with the Bulls leading by 20 points. "We needed him," he said. On most nights, Thibodeau's explanation would be understandable. The veteran coach didn't want to let a solid Pacers team back into a game the Bulls controlled all night. But the rules for Rose are different given his injury history, especially since Rose missed practice all week -- and Friday's game -- because of a right hamstring injury.
CHICAGO -- Derrick Rose went through all of morning shootaround and is expected to play Monday night against the Charlotte Bobcats, according to Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. Rose had his best game of the season against the Indiana Pacers on Saturday, scoring 20 points, including six three-pointers, and shooting 43.8 percent from the floor (7 of 16) for his highest percentage of the season. The Bulls hope the right hamstring injury that kept him out most of last week and forced him to miss Friday's game against the Toronto Raptors is behind him.
CHICAGO -- Carlos Boozer can't believe what he has heard over the past few months. He knows Derrick Rose is getting crushed from all angles for his lackluster start after sitting out the last year and a half while recovering knee surgery -- he just can't figure out why. That's why the veteran forward took so much pride in the fact that Rose had his best game in over 18 months in Saturday night's 110-94 drubbing of the previously undefeated Indiana Pacers.
Who knows if it was the plan all along, but once injuries got in the way, a vision for a starting backcourt became a puzzle for Maurice Cheeks. He put the pieces together before the Pistons' 99-91 loss to the Pacers, keeping Billups in the starting lineup and inserting Jennings as point guard, one game after his return from a fractured jaw.
INDIANAPOLIS -- Chicago Bulls center Joakim Noah is confident his game will come around after missing most of the preseason because of a groin injury. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said recently that Noah's conditioning is a "work in progress," but the All-Star center believes he will bounce back soon. "I feel pretty good," Noah said. "I'm grinding every day. That's all I can do. I'm working hard every day trying to get better, and I'll be ready for [Wednesday night against the Indiana Pacers].
INDIANAPOLIS: Some quick pregame notes as Cavs and Pacers inch close to tip-off… * No Andrew Bynum tonight. That was to be expected after he played last night. There was an erroneous report on NBA.com that Bynum had a stress fracture in his foot. It’s pretty bad when the league’s reporters can’t even get the story straight, but there is no truth to it. His feet are fine. The error has since been corrected. * Kyrie Irving’s elbow is fine. His right arm was numb after he banged his elbow last night, but x-rays were negative and he said the feeling started to return by the end of...

CHICAGO -- As Brian Shaw watched Derrick Rose work his way back from knee surgery last season, the former player and current Denver Nuggets head coach couldn't help but remember an old teammate of his -- Penny Hardaway. Shaw, who played with Hardaway in Orlando, said Friday night that he talked to Rose about his decision to return to the floor and mentioned what happened to Hardaway as an example. "I had a conversation with him about Penny Hardaway," said Shaw, who was an assistant coach for the Indiana Pacers at the time.
When it comes to injuries, few NBA coaches use as much sleight of hand as Tom Thibodeau. He announced Thursday that guard Kirk Hinrich passed the NBA protocol for head injuries but was dealing with a shoulder injury he suffered when he hit the floor last Friday against the Indiana Pacers. Out with the concussion, in with the latest setback. “I took a shot in the shoulder blade, as well,’’ Hinrich said. “It’s been giving me some trouble doing basketball...

CHICAGO -- After watching Derrick Rose torch his team to the tune of 32 points in 31 minutes Friday night, Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel spoke for all 21,783 people in attendance at the United Center when the topic of the former MVP came up during his postgame remarks. "Same old Derrick Rose that I remember before the injury," Vogel said. "He's special." That might be the best word to sum up Rose's performance given the circumstances.
