Report: PF Jason Maxiell earns roster spot with Hornets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:30 pm ET) Steve Clifford has confirmed that power forward Jason Maxiell has secured a roster spot for the Hornets, the Charlotte Observer is reporting.

The 31-year-old Maxiell suffered through a poor 2013-14 season with Orlando, which waived him in July. But he had been a stalwart for Detroit in previous seasons.


Report: Varejao beats out Thompson as Cavs starting center


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:24 pm ET) What was speculated has become official -- Anderson Varejao is the starting center for the Cavaliers and Tristan Thompson will come off the bench, according to the Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Both players performed well in exhibition play, but Varejao provides more of an interior defensive presence and has improved his offensive game markedly. Thompson has also become a greater offensive threat, but is considered more of a power forward on defense.


Report: PF Jason Smith earns starting job for Knicks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:41 pm ET) Jason Smith will serve as the starting power forward for the Knicks to open the season, according to the New York Post. He has emerged with the job ahead of Quincy Acy and Amar'e Stoudemire, who will be used as a super sub.

The former Pelican who is coming off knee surgery has performed well in the preseason. He is set to start the Friday exhibition finale against Toronto, then will likely maintain the spot when the team opens the regular season with back-to-back games against Eastern Conference studs Chicago and Cleveland.

The Knicks signed Smith for the mid-level exception of $3.2 million in the offseason.


Nets exercise options for Mason Plumlee, Sergey Karasev


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:18 am ET) The Nets exercised third-year options on center Mason Plumlee and forward Sergey Karasev Friday, the team announced. The decision will keep both players in Brooklyn through the 2015-16 season, and both players have team options for their fourth seasons in 2016-17.

Plumlee appeared in 70 games as a rookie and was surprisingly effective, averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in just 18.2 minutes per game. He shot 65.9 percent from the field and road his success to an appearance on Team USA's gold medal-winning FIBA World Cup appearance.

Karasev appeared in just 22 games after the Cavaliers made him the 19th overall pick in last year's draft. Karasev was acquired by the Nets in a three-team deal in July. 


Magic guard Victor Oladipo out indefinitely with facial fracture


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:44 am ET) Magic guard Victor Oladipo has been making progress in his recovery from a knee sprain, but was already uncertain for the team's season opener Tuesday. Friday he received more bad news, as the team announced he is out indefinitely with a facial fracture and will almost certainly miss the start of the regular season.

The injury occurred during practice Thursday, when he took an elbow to the face. He will undergo surgery Saturday, the team announced, and at this point it is not clear how long the injury is expected to keep Oladipo out or who might step into the starting lineup for him. Evan Fournier and Maurice Harkless have both filled in at shooting guard in the preseason, and seem to be the top contenders.

Oladipo managed to avoid injury almost entirely last season, as he averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 80 games en route to a second place finish in Rookie of the Year. 


Pelicans F Anthony Davis returns from wrist injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12:43 am ET) Pelicans forward Anthony Davis was back from a wrist injury in Thursday's preseason game against the Mavericks.

Davis, who was three days removed from the injury, scored 13 points on 4 of 9 shooting, including 5 of 8 from the charity stripe. He added six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 21 minutes of work.


Report: Cavs likely to start Varejao over Thompson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Early speculation that Tristan Thompson would start at center for the Cavaliers and energetic teammate Anderson Varejao would come off the bench has been refuted by the News Herald, which is claiming that the latter is all but set to start.

Both players have performed well in the preseason. Varejao however, is a favorite of LeBron James, who praised the Brazilian upon his return to Cleveland from Miami.

"He's the same Andy," James said. "If you ask him to run through six walls, he'll run through seven. He'll fight for every loose ball. He'll dive on the floor. He'll set screens. He'll help you out when you get knocked down. If any altercation happens, Andy will be right there. We just need him to stay healthy."

There's the rub. Varejao has lost 166 games to injury over the last four years. That constitutes more than half the games during that stretch.


Celtics waive PF Erik Murphy


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) What had been anticipated is now official - the Celtics have waived power forward Erik Murphy.

Murphy played 62 minutes in 24 games for Chicago and Utah last season. He scored six points and blocked four shots.


Heat send three rookies packing


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) The Heat has waived rookie guards Tyler Johnson and Larry Drew, as well as rookie forward and Miami native Shawn Jones.

Bryce Cotton, Josh Davis let go by Spurs


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) The Spurs have waived a pair of rookies - point guard Bryce Cotton and small forward Josh Davis.

Thunder F Kevin Durant out of cast, into walking boot


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Thunder star forward Kevin Durant has shed his cast in favor or a walking boot, per The Oklahoman.

The reigning NBA Most Valuable Player underwent foot surgery last week and is expected to be sidelined until at least early December.


PF Josh Powell waived by Rockets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) The Rockets have waived veteran power forward Josh Powell, who played one game for the team at the end of last season and scored four points in 19 minutes.

The 31-year-old Powell has played with seven different teams in his NBA career, which was launched in 2005. He has dealt with legal issues and has also played in China.


Cavaliers PG Kevin Love seeks more post-up opportunities


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love believes he needs more touches closer to the basket than he has received recently to maximize his contributions to his new team.

"My entire life I've played the game from inside-out," Love told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "So the more touches I can get inside to get myself going, the better. I'm not accustomed to starting out a game shooting a three, so it's just something that I see.

"I'm 26 years old and I've been playing basketball for quite a long time. Just finding ways to mix it up. If anything, keeping it around the basket a little bit more and the offense will allow me to get offensive rebounds. That will be tough for teams with Andy [Varejao] and myself and Tristan [Thompson] in there."

Love has been parking himself beyond the arc more often in the preseason and has struggled with his shot in recent games. His shooting ability creates space for such offensive talents as LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters, but David Blatt has expressed his understanding that Love also thrives in post-up situations that result in higher-percentage shots.


Report: Suns SF Warren out indefinitely with fractured thumb


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) The Suns have learned that the thumb injury sustained by rookie small forward and top draft pick T.J. Warren is a fracture, azcentralsports.com is reporting.

It marks the third hand injury sustained by a Phoenix player this preseason - Alex Len has a fractured finger and Anthony Tolliver required stitches for a hand gash.

Warren had played in every preseason game until Wednesday night. He was averaging 4.4 points on 50 percent shooting and 2.4 rebounds per game before going down. He appeared destined for some playing time in the regular season, but now he's out indefinitely.


Rockets bring G Geron Johnson in, send F Akil Mitchell out


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) The Rockets have signed guard Geron Johnson and requested waivers on forward Akil Mitchel.

The former is a rookie who averaged 9.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 28 minutes per game as a senior for the University of Memphis. The latter participated on Houston's Las Vegas and Orlando Summer League teams, but did not earn any minutes in preseason action.


Report: Clippers star Griffin investigated in battery complaint


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) The police are investigating a man's complaint that Clippers star power forward Blake Griffin attacked him during an argument over a camera at a Las Vegas strip club, per Yahoo Sports.

No arrests were made and Doc Rivers has stated that the issue should not be a distraction to the team as it prepares for its preseason finale Friday against Portland.
