Michael Singer: Malone on Murray, Barton or Harris’ availability: “Keep hope alive … Maybe one of those guys, but very very questionable.” Hell of an answer.
Michael Singer: According to Malone, Gary Harris is a game-time decision. Based on observations and conversations, I’m skeptical. I wouldn’t be shocked if he’s playing in his home state.
Harrison Wind: Even though the Nuggets will likely have their opening night starting five active in Dallas on Friday, Michael Malone said today that he’ll ease Gary Harris back into the rotation. Don’t be surprised if Malik Beasley continues to start for now.

Harrison Wind: Another note from Nuggets practice: Michael Malone said keeping Gary Harris out until after the All-Star break is “probably the most prudent decision to make.” Harris has missed Denver’s last 5 games with an adductor strain. He’s already been ruled out of Monday’s game vs. Miami.
Harrison Wind: Nuggets will only have two of their regular starters (Barton, Jokic) for tonight’s game vs Pistons. Gary Harris, Jamal Murray, Paul Millsap are all out. I’d expect Monte Morris and Malik Beasley to continue to start while minutes are available for reserve guard Brandon Goodwin.

Neither will be available for Friday’s home game against the Spurs.
“To have them slowly integrating back into practice is great,” said Nuggets coach Michael Malone. “When they’re able to return, I want those guys to know, it’s not like I expect Gary, who I think will be back before anybody, to come in and save the day. Maybe it’s easier for me to bring him off the bench, ease him back into it. These guys have been out for a while.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Denver guard Gary Harris is expected to need three-to-four weeks to rehab his right hip injury, league sources tell ESPN.
Chris Dempsey: The #Nuggets have announced that Paul Millsap has a fracture in his right big toe. He was injured last night’s in Charlotte. Gary Harris (hip), meanwhile, will be evaluated on a week to week basis. The Nuggets are now down 3 of their 5 starters going into tonight’s game at ATL.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens was hesitant to praise Hayward for his sacrifice partly because he learned about the revelation through the media instead of directly. “If he wants to go back for the birth of his child, that takes priority,” Stevens said. “That’s his decision and it’s, you know, I want to leave it at that. That’s his decision.”
Rachel Nichols: Hayward told me his wife Robyn isn’t in active labor yet, but she’s progressed thru enough pre-labor stages that the baby could come at any time, from tonight to the next few days. He doesn’t have his phone on the bench with him (per NBA rules) but will be checking it at the half
A source confirmed to The Athletic that free agents Tristan Thompson and Matthew Dellavedova will not be in attendance during Cleveland’s training camp. Andre Drummond will also not be participating, missing the in-market bubble for personal reasons.
“The reality is, though, I think winning teams argue way more than losing teams,” Green said. “Because losing teams, they bicker. So if I’m on a losing team, I’m gonna come to you, Ernie, and say, ‘Hey man, Shaq ain’t pass me the ball and he’s freezing me out.’ And then you partner up with me, and me and you look at Shaq like he’s crazy. A winning team is gonna say, ‘Jayson, your body language was terrible in the first quarter,’ because that’s what I saw when I was watching the game. Their offense is on the run, they’re up a couple points, and he’s not touching the ball and he’s dropping his shoulders, but you’re the best player on the team. So yes, I am going to say something about that. “Winning teams will always argue more than losing teams,” Green continued. “And in fact, the media can love losing teams if they want, if they don’t want any arguing, and those teams will just lose, and that’s that.”
T.O. Souryal, the Mavericks’ former longtime team doctor, isn’t ready to decry the 25-year-old Porzingis’ durability, longevity or potential. Instead, Porzingis’ latest setback might be a product of the evolution of the center position and his touch-heavy, versatile fit in the Mavericks’ scheme. “Anytime you have a star player with multiple injuries, especially to both knees, it’s a little troubling,” Souryal said. “But he seems to have come back from his ACL stronger than ever, so that injury’s behind us now. Each one of these injuries should be taken on its own merit.”
The play of centers more often looks like that of guards, so it’s no coincidence, Souryal said, that their list of injuries — such as ankle sprains and knee ligament tears — can, too. “[Porzingis] plays more similar to a Luka than the traditional center, [who were] not so agile, not very quick, not very fast,” Souryal said. “Physics really comes into play now. You know, the velocity of the movement, it does make you susceptible to injury, and it’s not so much Kristaps. It’s anyone who moves that fast, plants that quick, jumps that rapidly.”

Rachel Nichols: Gordon Hayward was originally supposed to leave the Bubble for the birth of his fourth child, but since he just got a bunch of unexpected time with his family due to his injury, he told me the current plan is to stay with the Celtics for as far as they go.
