Good chance Marvin Williams plays Monday in Washington.
Marvin Williams (concussion) will not play tonight vs. Nuggets. P.J. Hairston (sprained ankle) likely will play.
So Heat and Nets both lose in the race to see who can be vaporized by the Hawks first round.
The final score of Heat-Mavs is remarkable. Miami might as well have gone to the showers fourth quarter.
Mavs are so dangerous offensively. Spread a 7-point lead to 15 so fast.
Hornets were about to lose ground to both Nets and Heat and still might. But Heat down 7 and Nets in OT.
I suspect the Hornets will play well Saturday. You could sense an energy at practice today.
The 76ers sweep a season series the same night the Hawks have a legit sellout...The NBA, where amazing happens.
It took a long time for Hassan Whiteside to get his act together. But, man, is he gonna get paid.
Marvin Williams is such a gracious person. I waited 1/2 hour after practice to ask about his concussion. He was articulate and detailed.
I had an interesting chat with Marvin Williams today about his concussion. Turns out it was his third. Story posting later.
Sounds like a good chance Marvin Williams (concussion) will be cleared to play Saturday vs. Nuggets.
PJ Hairston sprained his left ankle at practice. Does not appear serious.
Kings' DeMarcus Cousins gets the nod to replace Kobe Bryant in All-Star Game.
I'm watching Bulls-Lakers on non-HD in Denver hotel. Feel like it's Boston-Phoenix with Rick Robey.
Eastern head coaches did right thing voting in Hawks' Horford, Teague and Millsap as All-Star reserves.
So based on Dwyane Wade's comments to South Florida media, he could be out nearly as long as Kemba Walker.
Steve Clifford said Marvin Williams' headaches have abated, so he can start the concussion protocol as soon as tomorrow.
Final: Spurs 95, Hornets 86
Gerald Henderson draws a T, his fifth this season.
Al Jefferson has matched his season high with 14 rebounds.
Spurs get out in transition; a two-point lead expands to 12 with just under nine minutes left.
Lance Stephenson is 0-of-5 from the field tonight.
End of third: Spurs 69, Hornets 64. Quite a quarter of defense for the Hornets to get back in the game.
Brian Roberts sure thought that was a flop by Patty Mills.
Spurs lead down to two now on Al Jefferson's layup.
Hornets have trimmed what was an 18-point deficit to six.
That Brian Roberts bucket was the Hornets' first made 3 of the night, four minutes into the second half.
Gerald Henderson playing quite well tonight. He's pushing the tempo and finding Al Jefferson in the post.
Third foul on Big Al early in second half.
Halftime: Spurs 55, Hornets 38. Hornets have taken three 3s, missed them all.
Hornets certainly have no answer for Tony Parker, no matter who has guarded him.
Two sloppy Hornets possessions set up back-to-back 3s from the Spurs, who lead 33-19 with 10:39 left in the half.
Tony Parker already has nine points on 4-of-6 shooting. Spurs big men such good passers the guards get lots of layups off cutters.
P.J. Hairston coming in next dead ball.
Clifford said Hornets making a concerted effort to run more of their offense through Lance Stephenson in Kemba Walker's absence.
Second foul on Al Jefferson. Here comes Jason Maxiell.
Al Jefferson not settling tonight for mid-range jumpers. Much more aggressive posting up.
AT&T Center is pretty empty 12 minutes before tip-off. Guess the Hornets on a Wednesday night isn't much of a draw.
Steve Clifford said pre-game no team in the NBA is better than the Spurs at exploiting opponent mistakes.
Veteran a group as the Spurs are, Pop might have a point regarding his own team.
The Spurs didn't have shootaround this morning. Gregg Popovich said pre-game a lot of times shootarounds are a waste of time.
How long has it been since Bobcats/Hornets won in San Antonio? Last victory Adam Morrison went off for 27 points in November of 2006.
Spurs just signed former Charlotte Bobcat Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract. He'd been in the D-League of late.
Last time Hornets beat the Spurs: Jan. 15, 2010. Last victory in San Antonio: Nov. 15, 2006.
Shelby's Alvin Gentry, lead assistant for the Golden State Warriors, will coach the USA team in the rising stars game.
Format for that game, involving rookies and second-year players, will be USA vs. the World this time.
Hornets' Cody Zeller will play in the rising stars game at All-Star Weekend in New York.
Hornets announce Kemba Walker had successful knee surgery. He'll be out a minimum of six weeks.
I was told tonight David Lee is the solution to the Hornets' problems. Ummmm. He makes $15,4 million next season.
I'm staying up to watch Chicago-Golden State despite a 9:17 flight to SA. This is terrific basketball.
Here is what bothers me about @nbatv highlights: They talked about the Heat throughout. And, incidentally, the Bucks won.
Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Replacements both on tonight. Decisions, decisions.
Dwyane Wade has left the Heat game with more hamstring troubles. You sense Heat, Hornets and Nets will stagger to finish line this season.
Had a chat with Cho today. Story coming later on-line. Will send out a link.
Rich Cho and Steve Clifford told me they'll see how things go (Pargo's recovery, Neal as the backup point) before any possible roster move.
Based on Clifford's comments, it sounds like Hornets won't immediately try to add a point guard.
Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Jannero Pargo is still at least a week away from playing.
We used to have an expression for Superstorm Juno in Syracuse; May.
I mean this kindly: I got many Seth Curry questions on Twitter today. Anyone who thinks Seth would help the Hornets short-term at PG...
I keep getting asked about Seth Curry. If the Hornets make a roster move, I'd think it would be for a more experienced point guard.
Jannero Pargo (sore back) has participated some in practice. Steve Clifford said Pargo will up his load this week, then be re-evaluated.
One of what I'm sure will be numerous guards who'll be connected to the Hornets: A.J. Price.
If Hornets add another point guard, they would have to cut another player unless the league gave them a 16th roster-spot exception.
The Hornets have had a single game this season when all 15 players were available to be activated. This Kemba surgery is the latest hit.
Hornets coach Steve Clifford said this morning the team could add another point guard if Kemba Walker is out long.
