by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:26 am ET) Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday was able to participate in full-contact offseason drills last week, the first time he has done so since undergoing season-ending surgery last January.

"Getting out playing has been a joy," Holiday told The Times-Picayune. "I've been running and jumping and stuff, but getting my rhythm back on the court is definitely a big thing right now for me."

The Pelicans open training camp Sept. 30, and Holiday is not expected to have any limitations as the team prepares for the start of the season. Holiday averaged 14.3 points, 7.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game last season prior to the injury.


Kent Bazemore focused on conditioning in recovery
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:18 am ET) Newly signed Hawks guard Kent Bazemore did not pick up a basketball until August, preferring to focus on conditioning in his recovery from foot surgery in April.

"I think the injury was definitely a blessing," he told the Daily Press, "because I was able to step away from the game of basketball. I took myself out of my element all summer. I did stuff I'm not used to doing."

Bazemore signed a two-year deal with the Hawks this offseason, and is expected to compete for playing time on the wing immediately, as he is fully recovered from the surgery.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"I haven't seen him do much on the court," Scott said. "It's going to be close on if he's ready for camp."

Henry has been able to take part in basketball activities, but has still not been cleared for contact. Still, he is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, after appeared in 43 games a year ago.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:09 am ET) Bucks assistant general manager David Morway told HoopsHype.com in September center Larry Sanders is still a part of the team's future plans, despite a troubled 2013-14 season.

"Absolutely," Morway said. "Yeah, yeah. Larry is in our future plans. We are hopeful that this year Larry gets back to being the basketball player that he was two years ago."

Sanders had a long list of issues follow him last season, including a drug suspension served at the end of the season, as well as a thumb injury suffered during a bar fight. Sanders was limited to just 23 games, during which he averaged 7.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game before his season ended in February with a fractured eye socket.

Sanders is expected to open the season as the team's starting center.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:55 am ET) Cavaliers center Brendan Haywood might be able to play during the first half of the 2014-15 season according to The Plain Dealer, as he is in better shape than expected ahead of the start of training camp.

According to the report, the team was concerned their recently-acquired big man might not be able to play until January, if at all, due to foot surgery last season. Haywood missed all of last season as a result of the surgery, but might be able to provide some depth in the backcourt shortly.  


Brook Lopez sheds weight in order to stay healthy
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:46 am ET) Nets center Brook Lopez lost 15 pounds this offseason, in hopes that he can stay healthy following a second season lost due to foot issues.

Lopez told The New York Post in August he is down to 275 pounds, after entering training camp at 290 pounds a year ago. Lopez's season ended in January after foot surgery, and he also underwent a procedure to clean up his ankle during the season.

Lopez is not expected to be on a minutes limit for the Nets this season, despite his injury history. He averaged 20.7 points and 6.0 rebounds per game in 17 appearances before the injury a year ago.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:29 am ET) Hawks guard John Jenkins was able to play a few games during the team's Las Vegas Summer League run, a sign that he has recovered from a lower back issue that derailed his 2013-14 season.

Jenkins appeared in just 13 games a year ago before finally having back surgery in January, but is expected to be at full health for the start of training camp. He appeared in two Summer League games, and is expected to compete for a backup role in the backcourt.

Jenkins has averaged just 5.6 points in 74 games over two seasons since the Hawks selected him 23rd overall in the 2012 draft.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
