Gustavo Ayon (right shoulder) was not at practice, the first since the team announced he would miss 4 to 8 weeks. Lou Williams (torn ACL) continued his non-contact work. John Jenkins (lower back spasms) remains day-to-day. He received treatment Thursday. The shooting guard confirmed that the spasms are related to the back injury that caused him to miss two months this summer. "I’m taking it slow," Jenkins said. "I'm not trying to rush back. I was good in training camp. I just made a false step and re-aggravated it a little bit. I’m in a rush to get back personally, but I know it takes time to heal so I’m going to be patient with it."

Horford, who is from the Dominican Republic, prefers to read books in Spanish and said that Garcia Marquez is much better in Spanish. (John Jenkins, Georgia's 358-pound nose tackle, just sacked McCarron for a 15-yard loss!) He listed Garcia Marquez books I hadn't heard of, and warned me not to bother with Memories of My Melancholy Whores. I wrote that down and then lowered the discourse: What did he think of Houston Rockets guard James Harden's 1970s beard? (Crazy catch by Amari Cooper ... then Lacy runs it up the middle. 'Bama closing in on its first score.) He told me that he didn't approve. Nor did his wife, which was why he keeps his facial hair close to his face. Creative Loafing Atlanta

Not coincidentally on Monday, the Bobcats auditioned two of the best shooters in college basketball last season – guards Kim English from Missouri and John Jenkins from Vanderbilt. English (6-foot-6 and 192 pounds) raised his 3-point percentage from 37 percent as a junior to 46 percent as a senior. Jenkins (6-4, 212 pounds) was the best 3-point shooter in Vanderbilt history, averaging 44 percent over three college seasons. Charlotte Observer

The Bobcats could use the No. 2 overall pick on a shooter, such as North Carolina’s Harrison Barnes or Florida’s Bradley Beal. But if they go with a big man at No. 2, such as Kansas’ Thomas Robinson, the logical use of the 31st pick is a player like English or Jenkins. Charlotte Observer

The first time Larry Drew saw John Jenkins play live, during a workout in Santa Barbara, the Vanderbilt guard didn’t shoot well. The second time Drew saw him, at the Chicago pre-draft camp, Jenkins was “just OK” shooting it. That changed during Jenkins’ workout at Philips Arena. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“He came here and he shot the hell out of it,” Drew said. “He has an NBA skill. He’s a guy that, watching him play and the way teams play him, it’s kind of that J.J. Redick feel. If he’s on the court, you better be with him at all times. It would be great to have a guy like that.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Vanderbilt marksman John Jenkins, Kentucky's Doron Lamb and Oregon State's Jared Cunningham are among the shooting guards receiving high marks from Griz personnel. Scouts also seem impressed by point guard prospects Marquis Teague of Kentucky and Tony Wroten of Washington. However, Griz brass entertained swingmen Draymond Green (Michigan State) and Jae Crowder (Marquette) on Saturday with great interest because of a desire to also add more versatile, high basketball IQ players to the roster.

The Bulls are reportedly seriously considering not picking up options on C.J. Watson and Ronnie Brewer for next season, and if neither is brought back and Korver is let go, too, Chicago will need to find some backcourt depth. Jenkins is one strong possibility to be precisely that, and his maturity and work ethic could make him a good fit for the Bulls and Tom Thibodeau’s system. Plus, he really wants to be there.
