Rudy Gay missed his third game Saturday night because of back problems. Now his season could be over, as the Toronto Raptors are considering shutting Gay down.
Gay received therapy Saturday, and the way his back responds could determine if his season is over, according to Raptors coach Dwane Casey.
"I would say that it's something that will be talked about sooner rather than later," Casey told
Since being traded to Toronto Raptors in January, Gay has averaged 20 points, six rebounds and three assists per game.

--Miami earned its 26th consecutive win Sunday night, beating the Charlotte Bobcats, but the Heat did so without All-Star guard Dwyane Wade.
Wade missed the game because of a sore right knee. He is listed as day-to-day.

--Golden State guard Stephen Curry left Saturday's game after re-injuring his right ankle, but on Sunday he said he would play in Monday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
"I'm fine. Don't worry about my ankle, I'll get through it like I usually do," he said, according to multiple media reports. "I have to get my treatment and get ready for Monday."

--The Bobcats signed guard Jannero Pargo to a second 10-day contract, the team announced.
Pargo had scored in double figures each of the previous four games before Sunday and was averaging 11.2 points and 3.2 assists for the Bobcats. He added five points and one assist in the loss to the Heat.
