    Marc Gasol says he nearly played in Olympics, his foot seems fine

    Marc Gasol missed the final two months of last season and Olympics with a foot injury. When will the Grizzlies center return? Gasol in L’Esportiu, as translated by Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype: On his foot injury: “I’m really well and looking forward to starting (the season).

    51Q: Will returning home to Atlanta rejuvenate Dwight Howard?

    We continue PBT’s 2016-17 NBA preview series, 51 Questions. Between now and the start of the NBA season we will tackle 51 questions we cannot wait to see answered during the upcoming NBA season. We will delve into one almost every day between now and the start of the season (we’re taking some weekends off). Today: It’s hard to remember an NBA star whose perception has changed as much in five years as Dwight Howard’s has. He hasn’t really helped matters — his messy exits from the Magic and Lakers, as well as his rumored feud with James Harden in Houston and declining production due to injuries have clearly lowered his standing. It’s easy to forget that five years ago, he was a three-time reigning
