His two minutes on the floor at the end of the West Coast trip last month only reaggravated it because he wasn’t really ready to return. The team shut him down completely for a week after that failed attempt. Miles said the bruising around the ankle has slowed his return. His aggressive rehab worsened the bruising, he said, because he was pushing it three or four days ahead of schedule. “I’ve got a certain amount of time before it fatigues because it’s not strong enough yet,” Miles said. “Now that the swelling is down, I’m getting the motion back. But I don’t have the strength to do what I need to do on a basketball court, especially as a guy who moves around a lot. It’s not like I’m standing around. I wouldn’t be able to help my team unless they told me to just stand in the corner all the time and play four-on-five.” Akron Beacon Journal

Derrick Rose, who hasn't played since tearing the medial meniscus in his right knee in November, remains a wild card. Rose told USA Basketball he would like to come to training camp July 28-31 in Las Vegas, and the Chicago Bulls — coach Tom Thibodeau is a U.S. assistant coach — would like Rose to participate if he's ready. "As far as we're concerned, we want him to come if he's capable of doing so. If that's the case, then everyone will know where he is in terms of his status," Colangelo said. "It's just an unknown. He's on our roster. If he's prepared and equipped to go, then great. Since that's not until the end of July, there's plenty of time here for him." USA Today Sports

The Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade will not play against the Indiana Pacers Friday. Wade hasn't played since March 26, and this will be his ninth consecutive game missed with an injured left hamstring. "But he is getting better. He did a workout today," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. USA Today Sports

The timing could not be worse. The bad timing is not even that the Suns have to play here with their season in the balance against the Spurs, the NBA's best team, and in an AT&T Center full of ghastly Suns postseason flashbacks from 2003 to 2008. It is the timing of Suns scoring and playmaking leader Goran Dragic going into a limp on his sprained left ankle and how it puts him in question for Friday's game at San Antonio. The game already was a quandary for the Suns (47-31) because, as much as every win can help the playoff chase, the more important game is on the tail end of this back-to-back set Saturday night at Dallas. The Suns are 8-9 this season on the second night of back-to-back sets. Arizona Republic
