On the injury front:
- Brandon Rush went down with what appears be a serious knee injury - a season ending type.
- As if Austin Rivers doesn't have anything better to do with his elbows, he decided to place one perfectly across Anthony Davis' temple. Hornets have listed him day to day and he'll already miss tonight's game against the Bulls.
- Andrew Bogut doesn't appear to be 100% as he was caught limping around in last night's game. Imagine that, the Warriors rushing someone back from ankle issues.
- Hedo Turkoglu broke his hand and will be out at least 4 weeks.
- Gustavo Ayon practiced today and has a decent chance on appearing in tomorrow's game.

Did I miss anyone else?

Obviously the Houston-Portland game should be interesting. Have to assume Boston finally gets a win tonight. Denver's got a good chance of joining the Lakers at 0-3. I think that Chi-NO game would have been interesting, if Davis had been able to play. That Hornets team has looked much better. Utah I think is going to get smoked. SNOABTB. Plus the Hornets exposed Al Jefferson in the pick and roll mercilessly last night. I fully expect more of the same from San Antonio until the Jazz figure out how to hide him. Anxious to see how Brooklyn looks in a real game.

Sullinger drawing the start for my Celtics tonight and couldn't agree more. Doc didn't play him at all in the 2nd half against Miami on Tuesday and that was a mistake. Nobody played well for us last night but Sullinger is probably our best rebounding big right now.

I guess James Harden and the Rockets are human afterall. I think a safe estimate for Harden's line this year would be somewhere along the lines of 24 ppg, 5 rebounds, 5 assists with about 2+ treys and 1.5 steals. I think as teams begin to adjust to Houston's offense, they are going to make life much harder for him going forward. Harden owners -> trade him now =)

A lot of nice games. Denver finally came to play and still lost. Gallinari had a bad shooting night for the ages. Fareid finally had a really nice game, but I'm wondering if he was the one that was supposed to be guarding Bosh when he went off for 40 points.
