One can only imagine how painful a bruised heel can be, and no one knows that better than Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick. He spoke about his bruised left heel, an injury sustained April 12 against Memphis in the second-to-last game of the regular season, after Wednesday’s 102-81 victory over Portland in Game 2 of the first round of the playoffs. “It’s something that I have to continue to monitor and take care of,” Redick said. “To be honest, it’s very sore. And after Sunday’s game it was pretty sore the last few days. So it’s just something that, hopefully, will heal. But it’s going to take time.”

Former Italian national team head coach and San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Ettore Messina is also being interviewed. A complicating factor? Financial challenges at Canada Basketball mean that the money being offered for the role is minimal or perhaps not even more than an honorarium covering expenses.
Meanwhile, a number of Canadian coaches are not impressed that Triano has been put in a situation where he has to effectively re-apply for his own job. “I know he was under the impression last summer that he was the head coach and hadn’t heard anything differently until recently,” said one source. “The way this has played out is disrespectful. He’s either your coach or he’s not.”

Players, coaches and management all have insisted on how important center Robin Lopez has been to the rebuild, so much so that the Bulls didn’t want to buy him out the last month for the stretch run.
