Jonas Jerebko not looking to go back overseas to play next year
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2:38 pm ET) Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko is set to become a free agent during the upcoming offseason, but he is not looking to head back across the Atlantic to play in 2015.

"No I’m in the NBA,” Jerebko told Basketball Insiders. "That’s it. I’m not even considering going overseas right now. The NBA is where I want to be. I want to stay in this league."

Jerebko is averaging 5.6 points and 3.2 rebounds in 42 games this season.

"Every year in the league has been up and down for me," Jerebko said. "But I’m trying to approach it the same way. I’m just trying to work hard and give it 100 percent every time I have a chance to get on the court. Now, it’s starting to pay off."

Raptors' Casey: James Johnson 'understands' playing time situation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12:25 pm ET) Raptors forward James Johnson has seen his playing time rapidly decline since mid-January, as coach Dwane Casey has opted to start Greivis Vasquez alongside DeMar DeRozan and work to keep Terrence Ross' confidence up, according to the Toronto Sun.

Johnson hasn't played more than 9 minutes in the last six games and logged zero minutes in two of those contests. Still, the Raptors have won five of the last six games, and Casey said Johnson will eventually see his minutes increase again.

“He’s been great. He understands. I spoke to him briefly earlier, he understands that when DeMar came back, somebody’s minutes was going to decrease,” Casey said. “And it wouldn’t be fair to throw him out there for a few minutes just to say: ‘Hey, we got him in the game.’ His time is going to come. I don’t know when it’s going to come, but it’s going to come because we need his physicality on both ends of the floor. He gives teams matchup problems offensively. Defensively, he gives us that size and toughness that we need in the paint, rebounding that we need.”
