Pacers F Paul George 'practicing full-out,' said Frank Vogel
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6:34 pm ET) The Pacers remain hopeful forward Paul George (leg) will be able to play this season. 

Via Vigilant Sports, Pacers coach Frank Vogel said George has progressed to the point where he can fully participate in practice

“He’s practicing full-out now,” Vogel said.”I think he’s done three or four practices now; he’s not at full-strength yet so he’s still got some hurdles to get past before he’s able to get out on to the court and play in games. We’re hopeful that that happens this year. We’ll see how the next few weeks progress.”

There is still no timetable for George's return. 

George suffered a compound fracture to his right tibia and fibula during a Team USA scrimmage on Aug. 1.

G Bradley Beal: Wizards need to stop playing selfish basketball
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5:11 pm ET) Wizards guard Bradley Beal had some strong words for the way his team has played over the past month. 

Since Jan. 28, the Wizards have lost 12 of their past 15 games. Beal, via the Monumental Network, said Washington hasn't been playing team basketball, which is the reason for the recent skid. 

"We have to get back to playing the way we did earlier in the year," Beal said. "We're taking a lot of shortcuts. We're taking the easy way out instead of working and doing everything we need to do to win. I think sometimes we're just trying to get by in a lot of areas of the game instead of just doing the hard things. I think once we get back to that and start sacrificing ourselves, and once we're more of an unselfish team, defensively, then I think we'll be fine."

Though Beal noted the Wizards aren't playing cohesively, he said it's not anything players are doing on purpose. It appears to be a case of players pressing and trying to figure out a way to stop the recent losing trend the Wizards have been on. 

"Individually we're trying to make up for it and we're trying to do things on our own," Beal said. "It's not necessarily bad, but it is bad. You're getting out of the team concept. [But] the intentions aren't bad."


Ray Allen announces he won't play in 2014-15 season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4:57 pm ET) Guard Ray Allen will not play during the 2014-15 season, his agent announced Wednesday.

"Over the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me," Allen said in a statement. "I’ve ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season. I’m going to take the remainder of this season, as well as the upcoming off-season, to reassess my situation, spend time with my family and determine if I will play in the 2015-16 season."

Allen made 73 appearances with the Heat in 2013-14, averaing a career-low 9.6 points and 26.5 minutes per game.
