Chauncey Billups says @Anfernee Simons, who is questionable with an upper-respiratory illness, has been feeling under the weather for the last few days and that he’s a game-time decision versus Kings. – 8:36 PM

Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Kings coach Alvin Gentry is really emphasizing pace, saying “we want to be a running team” and “we can’t become a halfcourt team, especially in the fourth quarter.” – 8:33 PM

Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
Alvin Gentry said Richaun Holmes is questionable and probably won’t play after getting poked in the eye in the loss to Philly. – 8:30 PM

James Ham @James_HamNBA
According to Alvin Gentry, Richaun Holmes is questionable with an eye issue and it’s very likely he does not play tonight. – 8:30 PM

Dave Mason @DeuceMason
Richaun Holmes is unlikely to play tonight after getting poked in the eye, according to interim coach Alvin Gentry. – 8:30 PM

Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
Kings coach Alvin Gentry says Richaun Holmes is questionable for tonight’s game after taking a shot to the eye in Monday’s game. “I would say he’s probably not going to play tonight.” – 8:30 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Kerr says Iguodala (knee soreness) is unlikely for Friday’s game vs. Blazers. He still hasn’t been able to get back on the court yet. – 8:24 PM

Davis had yet to miss a game this season, though he did leave the Portland game after 7 minutes (stomach illness).
Vogel said that they will play some zone, and that both centers (DJ, DH) will be needed. LeBron is also capable of “doing all of it” on defense. – 5:39 PM

Portland’s downtown has its issues, but at least, as far as I know, you can still buy beer in convenience stores, unlike here in Sacramento – 4:51 PM

Just finished the recently released “Jerome Kersey: Overcoming the Odds.” Kerry Eggers (@Kerry Eggers) wrote the book Kersey deserved, full of emotion and insight on the unlikely path from Longwood College to 11 yrs as a #Blazers favorite and a title with the #Spurs. Really good. pic.twitter.com/sGAuiVzia14:40 PM
