Pistons' Brandon Jennings undergoes surgery for ruptured Achilles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:51 am ET) Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said guard Brandon Jennings underwent surgery Monday night for a ruptured Achilles. He will miss the rest of the 2014-15 season.

Jennings was averaging a season-best 20.9 points per game in January before suffering the injury. He also had 26 rebounds, 94 assists and 17 steals in 13 January games.


Pacers will be without forward C.J. Miles on Tuesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:26 am ET) The Pacers announced forward C.J. Miles will not play Tuesday against the Raptors due to a left groin strain. It will be the second straight game he misses.

Miles, who has been averaging 12.4 points per game in 2014-15, is averaging 14.1 points in January after averaging 14.9 points in December.

The Pacers are considered 3 1/2-point underdogs for Tuesday's game.


Cavs already send Joe Harris back to the D-League
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:17 am ET) The Cavaliers announced Tuesday they reassigned guard Joe Harris to the NBA Development League, just a few days after recalling him from the D-League on Sunday.

Harris has played in 35 games (one start) for the Cavs this season, averaging 2.8 points in 11.1 minutes per game.


Heat's Andersen questionable, Deng doubtful for Tuesday's game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:07 am ET) Heat forward Chris Andersen (elbow, back) did not participate in shootaround Tuesday and is listed as a game-time decision against the Bucks. Forward Luol Deng also missed shootaround due to a sore calf, but he is being listed as doubtful to play Tuesday.

Report: Hawks guard Shelvin Mack out again Wednesday

Lakers' Scott calls Nick Young's benching a 'one-game thing'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:38 am ET) If guard Nick Young was calling the shots for the Lakers, his solution would be simple to Kobe Bryant likely missing the rest of the season due to a shoulder injury.

“Pretty much just give me the ball and get out of the way,” Young said, per the Los Angeles Daily News.

It could make sense since Young is averaging 14.4 points per game, which trails only Bryant's team-leading 22.3 points per game. However, Young isn't calling the shots. That's coach Byron Scott's job, and Young needs to worry about getting on Scott's good side after be played only nine minutes in Sunday's loss against Houston because Scott was frustrated with Young's body language.

“The message I was sending (Sunday) night was, ‘You basically didn’t look like you wanted to play,’” Scott said. “‘You weren’t defending. You were just standing around.’ He was throwing the ball all over the place. So I chose not to play him, because if you look disinterested, with body language and things like that, to me you don’t want to play.”

Young chose not to speak to reporters after Sunday's game and didn't get too much into the benching Monday by saying, "He’s the coach and he’s seeing what he’s seeing. It’s not my place to get into that.”

Scott called the benching a “one-game thing” and reported Young being “energetic” during Monday’s practice. Young seems eager to put Sunday's benching behind him.

“There’s never a day that goes by that I don’t want to be out on the court,” Young said. “I love being here and love playing basketball. I get a joy out of playing and seeing the fans and hearing them chant ‘Swaggy P.’”


Clippers' Barnes drops 18 points before aggravating abdominal injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10:05 am ET) Clippers forward Matt Barnes was great from the field Monday against the Nuggets, going 7 of 11 and finishing with 18 points. Unfortunately, it was not all good news for Barnes, who aggravated a strained abdominal muscle in the fourth quarter, according to the Associated Press.

Barnes scored in double figures Monday for the first time in four games. Although, he is averaging a season-best 12.5 points per game in 12 January appearances.


Hornets' Brian Roberts ready to fill in for injured Kemba Walker
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:59 am ET) With Hornets guard Kemba Walker out indefinitely due to knee surgery, Brian Roberts is ready to step up in his absence. It's a role that is not unfamiliar to Roberts, who started 42 games last season for the Pelicans after Jrue Holiday suffered a tibia fracture.

“Here’s another opportunity for me to step up and help this team win games,” Roberts said Monday, per the Charlotte Observer. “It’s a challenge and everybody has to step up and take a little bit more ownership. Filling that void will be a group effort.”

Hornets coach Steve Clifford has praised Roberts for his play in limited action this season. He averages 6.8 points and 2.1 assists and 17.4 minutes. He also shoots 37 percent from 3-point range.

“Organize and score,” Clifford said of Roberts' strengths. “We play with a purpose when he’s in there. And with the pick-and-roll and the catch-and-shoot, he puts pressure on the defense.”


Rookie Joe Ingles settling in with Jazz, encouraged to shoot more
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:52 am ET) Jazz forward Joe Ingles poured in a career-best 16 points during Saturday's 108-73 win against the Nets. All four of his baskets were from 3-point range.

Saturday's performance has been something Jazz coaches and players have been waiting for from the 6-8 rookie, who said he is often encouraged to shoot more often, per the Deseret News

“When every guy on the team and the coaching staff is telling you, ‘shoot it, shoot it,’ obviously I’ve always known I could shoot it, but it was more of a trying to get the guys involved and being that middle man,” Ingles said. “I don’t mind doing it, and I’m not out there to get my own stats or anything like that.”

While Ingles is not a big-time offensive contributor yet, he has begun to earn more playing time. He has already logged a season-best 347 minutes in 13 January games. He is also averaging a season-best 6.0 points per game in January and is proving to have good court vision by averaging 4.0 assists per game this month.

“I don’t want him to get carried away,” Snyder said “He still needs to take good shots. I thought he was confident, and the shots he took were good shots.”


Jazz's Snyder impressed by Elijah Millsap's 'defensive mindset'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9:41 am ET) Jazz shooting guard Elijah Millsap has his strong defensive play to thank for landing a multiyear deal after originally signing a pair of 10-day contracts.

“He’s got a defensive mindset, for one thing,” Jazz coach Quin Snyder said of Millsap, per the Deseret News. “We’re thin at the wing obviously with Alec’s injury and Rodney (Hood) being out, so he had an opportunity to play right away, which is good. It gave us a really good look at what he can do.”

Snyder was particularly impressed with how well Millsap played in matchups against Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant and James Harden during a road trip in January.

“That’s a heck of a 10-day right there, right?” Snyder said. “The way he took those challenges --  and he’s unselfish.”
