Pelicans' Monty Williams sasys re-signing Omer Asik is an issue
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2:45 pm ET) Pelicans coach Monty Williams indicated re-signing center Omer Asik is a big priority for the team in the offseason, reports the New Orleans Advocate.

Asik, 28, will become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. In 76 games this season, he averaged 7.3 points and 9.8 rebounds.


Wizards' Garrett Temple (hamstring) starting to increase workouts
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2:22 pm ET) Although Wizards guard Garrett Temple has not been able to practice since March because of a hamstring injury, he will increase his physical activity at Wednesday's practice, the team announced.

Temple has not played since March 9 after sustaining a hamstring injury, but coach Randy Wittman said he is making good progress.


Pelicans' Gordon played most of season with shoulder injury
(2:15 pm ET) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon played through much of the 2014-2015 season with a shoulder injury and could have opted for season-ending surgery, coach Monty Williams told reporters Tuesday, per NOLA.com. 

Gordon did miss 21 games this season due to a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He returned on Jan. 5 and did not miss a game the rest of the season, including the team's four playoff games.

He scored a total of 74 points during the Pelicans' Western Conference first-round series loss to the Warriors. 

For the season, Gordon scored 13.4 points per game and averaged about 33 minutes played per game. 


Mavericks F Chandler Parsons still deciding on knee procedures
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:12 pm ET) Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons said he wants to wait until after the Mavericks season to decide how he will proceed with his injured knee, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"I still haven't decided when," Parsons said. "Hopefully, we keep winning. I want to keep being with the team. There's no way I want to go and do something and miss time and not be with these guys. I've been with them all year long. It's not what I want to do."

Parsons said there are various options that could fix his knee, but they won't know exactly what is needed until doctors can perform the surgery.

"There's a lot of opinions and a lot of different things out there, but really the doctors won't know anything until they open me up," Parsons said. "So I'm not going to say something is going to happen or not happen and then be wrong. I really won't know until they open me up."

Parsons options include an arthroscopic procedure, but a league source reportedly indicated microfracture surgery is also a possibility.

"I'm well aware of every scenario," Parsons said. "Obviously, some take more time and longer to recover than others. But even the doctor won't know until he gets in there."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:31 pm ET) Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said it's highly unlikely forward Kevin Love will be able to return during the playoffs, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.

Love sustained a dislocated shoulder during the Game 4 win over the Celtics on Sunday when he got tangled with Kelly Olynyk. Love has already been ruled out of the Eastern Conference Semifinals and Griffin said he would be surprised if Love was able to return at any point in the playoffs. He also did not rule out surgery for Love.

With Love likely out for the remainder of the playoffs, forward LeBron James said the team remains confident that someone will fill Love's role, reports Fox Sports.

"We're a confident bunch," he said. "We have guys who can step up. No excuses."


Hawks' Brand interested in playing for Knicks, if he doesn't retire
(11:38 am ET) Hawks forward Elton Brand, a free agent this offseason, is reportedly interested in signing with the Knicks, according to the New York Post. That's if he decides to play at all in 2015-2016.

Brand, 36, started just four games in his second season with the Hawks, and scored a career-low 96 points. He could be leaning towards retiring, rather than continuing his career.

"I got to make a decision if I’m going to play and come back,’’ Brand said. "[The Knicks] are definitely on the radar for sure. Yeah, I’m thinking about it. Moving on to something else, but I still also love to play and still feel good. I’m going to look at both options."

Brand is a 16-year veteran and has averaged 16.1 points-per-game during his career.
