Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: USA Basketball sent out approximately 60 invitations to players expressing interest in being part of 2021 Olympic team player pool, including all the league’s big names. Team USA could be without players advancing to NBA Finals, based on timing of July Olympics in Tokyo.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Selection process at center will be interesting for this team, a problem-area for Team USA in 2019 World Cup. Miami’s Bam Adebayo and Houston’s Christian Wood – one of the league’s success stories in 2020-2021 – are among invitees to fill those roles, sources said.
Mirjam Swanson: Ty Lue on the six-game winning streak: “The guys understand that we gotta continue to get better, each practice, each game, each shootaround.” Right now, that means an improvement in pace.
Mike McGraw: Otto Porter listed out tonight vs Lakers. Donovan talked this week about possibly resting him on back-to-backs to keep his back healthy. Could open up minutes for Hutchison’s return. Wendell Carter (quad) also out. #Bulls
The last time the Hawks had a full-on practice, they were in Phoenix and had the opportunity to do so only because their game against the Suns on Jan. 13 was canceled because of contact tracing. It’s one of the many adjustments the Hawks have had to make this season, with the NBA’s schedule upended because of the coronavirus and the many new rules and limitations in place. “You have to adapt, and you have to try and figure out what’s best with the bulk of the schedule,” coach Lloyd Pierce said.
With nine new players on the roster and largely a young roster, at that, the Hawks could use more practice time to build up chemistry and simply iron out any kinks. But, because of the new schedule, they’ve probably had only four full-on, live-contact practice since their season started Dec. 23, Pierce estimated.
“We’re all adjusting. I’ve never done this in the NBA, fly to a city and go straight to the gym, and so it does give us some getting used to the arena floor because we won’t have a shootaround (the next day), so it is a different norm and we use it as our way to break the ice a little bit, get some rhythm, and then we have a ton of rest heading into tomorrow’s game.”
