Celtics guard James Young begins some basketball activities
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:37 pm ET) Celtics guard James Young said his separated right shoulder is improving with treatment and he has begun some basketball activities, according to The Boston Globe

Bulls center Joakim Noah returning to lineup Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:33 pm ET) Bulls center Joakim Noah, who has missed the last four games due to an ankle injury, went through shootaround Thursday and said he is returning to the lineup against the Knicks, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Report: Lance Stephenson (pelvic) doubtful for next two games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:26 pm ET) Hornets guard Lance Stephenson was unable to practice Thursday against the Suns and is considered highly doubtful for the team's next two games, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Stephenson left Wednesday's game against the Suns due to a groin contusion, but the team listed his injury as a pelvic sprain Thursday.

The Hornets play the 76ers on Friday and the Jazz on Saturday.


Vaughn preparing Magic SF Harkless for all roles
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:14 pm ET) Magic small forward Maurice Harkless has played 25 minutes in the last two games combined. That might not seem like much until one considers he was a DNP in eight of the previous nine.

Harkless was just 1 of 3 from the field in the two recent efforts, but that will not prevent him from earning more extended playing time, according to Jacque Vaughn.

Vaughn said he has talked to Harkless in conversations "geared towards accepting your responsibility of your profession," per the Orlando Sentinel. "This is what you signed up for, and there's no guarantee there's minutes for you. You earn those minutes. You produce those minutes.

"And when you're not in the rotaion, there's still a responsibility that you have to have: of having yourself ready, whether that's extra running, whether that's extra film work, whether that's having the mindset that, 'I'm a backup quarterback and the starter could go down on one play and I need to be prepared just as if I was the starter."


Rose (illness), Gibson (ankle) questionable for Thursday's game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:09 pm ET) Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said guard Derrick Rose missed shootaround Thursday because an illness and is being listed as questionable for the game against the Knicks.

He added forward Taj Gibson also missed the shootaround because of an ankle injury and is also questionable to play Thursday.


Celtics guard Marcus Smart expected to practice Thursday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11:52 am ET) Celtics coach Brad Stevens said guard Marcus Smart is slated to practice Thursday after missing the last two games due to an Achilles injury. Smart, who missed time earlier this season due to an ankle injury, has appeared in just 10 games, averaging 5.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.

Knicks star forwards might both be sidelined Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:36 am ET) Derek Fisher has announced that Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire will likely sit Thursday night at Chicago per Newsday. His absence would be simply to give him rest with the team scheduled for back-to-back games Saturday and Sunday.

Fisher added that star small forward Carmelo Anthony is questionable for the game against the Bulls with knee soreness.


Source: Rajon Rondo open to re-signing with Mavs or Rockets
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Lawson played 47 minutes in the overtime affair and was the only member of his team to see at least 40 minutes of action. He's managed six double-doubles in nine December games. Lawson is set to square off with the Clippers Friday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
