    Oregon Live: Blazers-Jazz: Utah comes into Rose Garden less healthy than it was a few days ago
    "On Wednesday, the Jazz beat the Clippers 103-95 in Los Angeles despite missing its top two small forwards, Andrei Kirilenko and C.J. Miles. Because the Jazz are playing a back-to-back and aren't having a shootaround this morning, it won't be clear until game time tonight if either will be available against Portland."

    CBS: Post-Ups
    "Exploratory trade talks the Trail Blazers are involved in on multiple fronts hinge on what decision is made with regard to Brandon Roy's short- and long-term health. Team officials already have engaged in internal discussions about trading older players such as Marcus Camby, Andre Miller and Joel Przybilla. Such an avenue would seem to be more likely if it's decided that Roy will miss significantly more than the six games he just sat out due to a bone-on-bone condition in both knees. One scenario involved Miller going to the Bobcats, but those talks took place prior to Charlotte's recent coaching change. The Bobcats now are entering a new evaluation period under coach Paul Silas and have no current interest in straight salary-dump trades. "That's the furthest thing from the truth," one source said. "We want to do basketball deals if we can."

    Hang Time Blog: KG Injury Changes The Game
    "If Garnett’s injury causes him to miss a significant amount of time that changes the games for all of the contenders in the Eastern Conference. Miami started their chase shortly after Thanksgiving, so they were going to have something to say about the Eastern Conference representative in the NBA Finals anyway. But a vulnerable Celtics team raises the stakes dramatically for our friends in Orlando, Chicago and even Atlanta (depending on the playoff matchups)."

    Ball Don't Lie: Video: Tyreke Evans hits a 50-footer to win at the buzzer
    "A short time ago, the Kings' Tyreke Evans had his prayer answered to give his team a 100-98 victory over the Grizzlies in Sacramento. Just so we're clear, this is a 50-foot shot at the buzzer right after a tough fadeaway by O.J. Mayo to give Memphis the lead with only 1.5 seconds remaining. Without a timeout, the Kings couldn't advance it, but it turns out Evans wouldn't need an easier look to win this one."

    ESPN: Turner struggles to find his place
    "This is rock bottom,'' he said. "It can't be any worse, in my mind. I've just got to keep working. I feel like it can't get any worse. The only way it can go is up."

    ESPN Daily Dime
    "Earning this honor for a second straight night, D-Wade bled for his Heat, dropping in 45 points on 17-for-24 shooting, along with hitting all 10 of his free throws in Miami's 125-119 road victory over the Rockets."
