Amare Stoudemire (knee) said it's possible he can be ready for the season opener.

It's not exactly a ringing endorsement that it's "possible" he will be ready. Stoudemire still doesn't even have a timetable to start running, so it's hard to imagine he'll be ready for game action in three weeks. Andrea Bargnani and Kenyon Martin figure to help fill the void while STAT is on the mend. We're steering clear of Stoudemire in drafts this year.

Goran Dragic was named the NBA's Most Improved Player for 2013-14 on Wednesday.

Dragic averaged numerous career-highs with 20.3 points, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game, though his brilliant season wasn't enough for the Suns to make the playoffs. He posted a True Shooting percentage of 60.4 percent which trailed only Stephen Curry among players averaging at least 20 minutes per game, and he's poised for another huge season with the Suns before likely opting for free agency in 2015. Lance Stephenson finished second in MIP voting, while Anthony Davis finished third.

Mario Chalmers (bruised knee) participated in the walkthrough portion of Wednesday's shootaround and he remains a game-time decision for Game 2.

"We're trying to keep him off his feet as much as possible," said coach Erik Spoelstra. He played through the injury during Game 1, finishing with seven points in 25 minutes, but if he can't suit up the Heat will deploy either Norris Cole or Toney Douglas as a fill-in starting PG.

Al Jefferson (plantar fascia) said that he "should be good" to play in Wednesday's Game 2.

"I can't say there won't be some kind of pain," Jefferson said. "But I feel like every hour it's getting better and better." We'll confirm his status before tip-off but it sounds like he'll be in uniform. The bigger question is how effective he'll be, especially since the Heat will test his mobility with Chris Bosh at center and what's sure to be an endless stream of pick-and-rolls.

Bradley Beal bounced back from an off game and hit 9-of-20 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to 26 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block as the Wizards beat the Bulls again in Chicago on Tuesday, taking an improbable 2-0 lead as the series shifts to Washington for Game 3.

If you had the Wizards up 2-0 at this point, congratulations are in order. This one went to overtime as the Wizards pulled off a nice, late comeback, and then saw Kirk Hinrich miss a pair of free throws at the end of overtime to give the Wizards the win. Beal was just 3-of-11 for 13 points in Game 1 and the Bulls have already been backed into a corner against the upstart Wizards.

DeMar DeRozan hit 9-of-21 shots and 12-of-14 free throws for 30 points, three rebounds, two assists, six turnovers and five personal fouls in Tuesday's 100-95 win over the Nets in Game 2 to tie their series 1-1.

DeRozan was seen pouting at the end of the bench, ignoring his team's huddle after he picked up his fifth foul, but came back strong to hit some big buckets and help the Raptors get the win. This game was back and forth all night, and the Raptors got a game they needed to have as the series heads to Brooklyn for the next two games. DeRozan had 17 in the fourth quarter tonight.

Paul George hit 9-of-16 shots and five 3-pointers for 27 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, four steals, a block and just one turnover in Tuesday's easy 101-85 Game 2 win over the Hawks to tie their series at 1-1.

George was great tonight and the Pacers dominated the third quarter after being down four at halftime. They went on a 17-0 run and won the game easily, despite not getting much from Roy Hibbert (1-of-7 shooting) and Lance Stephenson (seven points). The series heads to Atlanta for Game 3 on Thursday.

Jeremy Lin (illness) did not practice with the Rockets on Tuesday.

Lin played 34 minutes in the Rockets' Game 1 loss to the Blazers on Sunday, scoring 14 points and grabbing six rebounds. The Rockets need Lin's scoring off the bench, and his ability to be the third ball-handler behind James Harden and Patrick Beverley. If the Rockets want to even the series, they will need a productive Lin in Game 2 on Wednesday.

Julius Randle officially declared for the 2014 NBA Draft on Tuesday.

Randle had already alluded to this decision, but his decision became formal on Tuesday as he became the last of the big-name college players to enter the draft. Randle helped his Kentucky Wildcats reach the finals and put up solid numbers during the regular season with averages of 15.0 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 0.8 blocks. He is expected to be a lottery pick in June's draft and could go as high as the Top 5.
Apr 22 - 1:52 PM

Bobcats coach Steve Clifford is unsure if Al Jefferson (foot) will be able to participate in Wednesday's shootaround.

Clifford seemed "less than certain" that Jefferson will play in Game 2 and it sounds like he may be a game-time decision for Wednesday's rematch vs. the Heat. The Bobcats desperately need Jefferson if they have any hope of stealing this series, but a strained plantar fascia is a painful injury and Big Al has been getting around in a walking boot since hurting himself on Sunday. If Jefferson is unable to play, Bismack Biyombo would be in line for a minutes bump.

Gregg Popovich has been named the 2013-14 NBA Coach of the Year.

The win comes as no surprise as Popovich was able to navigate the veteran Spurs to the NBA's best record this season. This is the second Red Auerbach Trophy in three years for Pop and his third overall since taking over as the Spurs' head coach in 1996. Popovich is a big reason that the Spurs' assistant coaches keep popping up as head coaching candidates and it's nice to see him get the recognition he deserves from the media.

Kobe Bryant (knee) is frustrated with the Lakers according to sources close to Bryant.

Bryant missed an appearance to thank fans due to a migraine and was in Paris while the rest of his team was conducting exit interviews, so Bryant's frustration is becoming more apparent. There is no word on exactly who Kobe's people are, but said people acknowledged the 35-year-old is "frustrated" with the Lakers and the prospect of rebuilding for two more seasons. The bad news for Bryant is that he's committed to the Lakers for two more seasons, but there is a silver lining as the Lakers will have a lottery pick and plenty of cap space to work with this offseason.
