  • Lonzo Ball playing 'for sure' in Lakers' opener

    Lawrence Murray El Segundo, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball practiced in full Monday and declared himself ready to play in the team's season opener Thursday against the LA Clippers. When asked what made the regular-season opener special after his experiences in the summer league and preseason, Ball downplayed it a bit, saying, "It's the opener. That's all there is to it. Gotta get a win." But Ball also shot down any chance he'd miss the game Thursday: "No, I'm playing. For sure." Ball has been restricted since injuring his ankle in an Oct. 2 preseason home loss to the Denver Nuggets and was held out of the last four preseason games. With the season opener days away,

  • Nuggets Hone in on Utah as Season Opener Draws Near

    If it was football, Monday at the Pepsi Center would be called Installation Day, the practice in which the plan for the next game started to be put in. The Nuggets could still call Monday Installation Day, because this morning’s practice was the first time coaches introduced Utah-specific information to the players. Getting a handle on Utah won’t be as easy. The Jazz are a different bunch from the team that won 51 games last season and advanced to the second round of the NBA playoffs. Gone from that team is their All-Star, Gordon Hayward, and their starting point guard, George Hill, who now plays for Sacramento. Ricky Rubio is now Utah’s starting point guard, coming in a trade with Minnesota

  • Answering 24 Deep Questions As 2017-18 NBA Season Approaches

    I say Markelle Fultz. What, you thought I was gonna pick against a DeMatha Catholic man? (Actual unretouched photo of me as a sophomore at the most successful high school in the history of the United States may or may not be here). Playing off of Joel Embiid, J.J. Redick, Robert Covington … it’s hard to see Fultz not looking really good when he should have all kinds of room to operate. Lonzo Ball will put up bigger numbers, and Tatum will be on a better team. But Boston was good last year, and Jayson Tatum will likely not play as much as the others. The Sixers are poised for a big jump up in the standings, and that’s always a narrative that voters like and get behind — which is what will hurt
