10/22/2014 Blake Griffin, F-C Police are investigating a man's allegation that Griffin attacked him in a Las Vegas nightclub during the weekend. Officer Jesse Roybal, a department spokesman, said Wednesday that a battery complaint was filed Sunday stemming from an altercation involving the NBA player. No arrest was made. Roybal says the case remains open.

Analysis: Team spokesman Seth Burton says the Clippers are aware of the complaint, but have no immediate comment. The celebrity news website TMZ quoted a man who said Griffin grabbed his neck, took his cellphone and slapped him after he took a photo early Sunday at Tao nightclub at the Venetian resort.
10/21/2014 Jarell Eddie, SG The Atlanta Hawks have trimmed their roster to 15 players by waiving Eddie and center Dexter Pittman.

Analysis: Eddie and Pittman didn't play in the Hawks' 117-114 overtime preseason win over Charlotte on Monday night. Eddie, a rookie from Virginia Tech, averaged 2.8 points in three preseason games.
10/21/2014 Dexter Pittman, C The Atlanta Hawks have trimmed their roster to 15 players by waiving Pittman and forward Jarell Eddie.

Analysis: Eddie and Pittman didn't play in the Hawks' 117-114 overtime preseason win over Charlotte on Monday night. Pittman has played with Miami, Memphis and Atlanta in four NBA seasons.
10/21/2014 Kevin Durant, F Durant says he has been antsy since finding out he will miss the early part of the season with a broken bone in his right foot. The reigning MVP spoke to the media Tuesday for the first time since the injury. He had surgery on Oct. 16 and will be re-evaluated in about five weeks. He rolled into the media session on a scooter with the lower half of his right leg in a cast.

Analysis: Durant says he's never had surgery, so he doesn't know how he will respond to it, but he won't rush his return. He said the situation presents an opportunity for his teammates to grow, and he feels that the team will be better off in the long run as a result.
10/21/2014 John Lucas III, PG The Washington Wizards have signed Lucas. The Wizards made the move Tuesday.

Analysis: Lucas has played in six NBA seasons with Houston, Chicago, Toronto and Utah, appearing in 216 regular-season games with eight starts. Last season, Lucas played in 42 games with Utah, averaging 3.8 points.
10/20/2014 Hasheem Thabeet, C The Detroit Pistons waived Thabeet, announcing the move Monday.

Analysis: Thabeet was the No. 2 pick in the 2009 draft by Memphis, but the 7-foot-3 center has never averaged more than 3.1 points per game. He played 23 games for Oklahoma City last season.
10/20/2014 Kyrylo Fesenko, C The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived Fesenko. The Timberwolves announced the move on Monday. Fesenko played in one preseason game and only managed three minutes. He was hoping to earn a spot with the Wolves or another team so he could bring his family over to the United States from Ukraine, where the government has been clashing with pro-Russian separatists for months.

Analysis: The 7-foot-1 Fesenko averaged 8.4 points and 5.2 rebounds with the Timberwolves in summer league play. But the Wolves already have Nikola Pekovic, Gorgui Dieng and Ronny Turiaf in the post, which left no room for Fesenko.
10/20/2014 Keith Appling, PG The Los Angeles Lakers have waived guard Keith Appling and forward Jeremy Tyler, reducing their training camp roster to 17 players.

Analysis: Appling is a rookie from Michigan State. He played 20 minutes in two preseason games for the Lakers.
10/20/2014 Jeremy Tyler, C The Los Angeles Lakers have waived guard Keith Appling and forward Jeremy Tyler, reducing their training camp roster to 17 players.

Analysis: Tyler has played for Golden State, Atlanta and New York. He averaged 2.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in three preseason games with the Lakers.
10/19/2014 Xavier Henry, G-F Henry is expected to miss the rest of the preseason with a bruised knee.

Analysis: Henry could be back for the Lakers' season opener against Houston on Oct. 28.
10/19/2014 Ben McLemore, SG The Sacramento Kings have picked up the 2015-16 option on guard Ben McLemore's contract. General manager Pete D'Alessandro announced the move Sunday.

Analysis: McLemore averaged 8.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 26.7 minutes last season as a rookie. McLemore was picked seventh overall by Sacramento in the 2013 draft.
10/17/2014 Kyrie Irving, G Irving is coming back to the court after missing three games with a sprained right ankle. Irving had his ankle stepped on by teammate Anderson Varejao in practice early last week and didn't play in Brazil when Cleveland faced the Miami Heat.

Analysis: Cavs coach David Blatt says Irving will play in Friday's exhibition against Dallas. Blatt says Irving "is raring to go, and that's good." Blatt isn't worried about Irving's conditioning because he played this summer with USA basketball.
10/17/2014 Kevin Love, F-C Love will not play in Friday's preseason tilt against Dallas.

Analysis: Coach David Blatt wants to rest Love, who has played in all four preseason games but was bothered by a stiff neck after a collision in Wednesday night's game in Cincinnati.
10/17/2014 Joel Anthony, F-C The Boston Celtics have traded Anthony to the Detroit Pistons for guard Will Bynum.

Analysis: Anthony has averaged 2.3 points and 3 rebounds in his seven years in the league. He spent the first six years with the Miami Heat before he was traded to the Celtics in January. He scored 22 points in 21 games after coming to Boston.
10/17/2014 Will Bynum, PG The Boston Celtics have traded center Joel Anthony to the Detroit Pistons for Bynum.

Analysis: Bynum averaged 8.7 points and 3.9 assists over 56 games last season, his seventh in the NBA.
10/17/2014 Larry Sanders, F-C Sanders will miss the rest of the preseason after minor surgery. General manager John Hammond said Friday that Sanders had an outpatient procedure. Sanders is expected to be ready when the regular season begins Oct. 29 against the Charlotte Hornets. Details of Sanders' surgery were not disclosed.

Analysis: The Bucks had already announced that Sanders would miss Friday night's preseason game in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, against Minnesota because of an illness. Sanders played well in three preseason games, averaging 10.7 points and 10.0 rebounds. The 6-foot-11 shot-blocking center hopes to bounce back from a season marred by an orbital bone fracture and a thumb injury. Sanders also had off-court issues after signing a four-year, $44 million contract extension.
10/16/2014 Joel Embiid, C Arthur Embiid, the younger brother of Philadelphia 76ers rookie center Joel Embiid, died Thursday in Africa. The cause of death wasn't immediately available.

Analysis: Embiid, a 7-footer from the University of Kansas, has yet to practice or play in the preseason after having surgery on his right foot in June, shortly before the team made him the third overall pick in the draft. He's expected to at least miss a large portion of the regular season. Coach Brett Brown, general manager Sam Hinkie and forward Luc Mbah a Moute - also a native of Cameroon - skipped the team's exhibition game Thursday night against Boston to be with Embiid.
10/16/2014 Brook Lopez, C Lopez is expected to be sidelined for 10 days to two weeks after mildly spraining his right mid-foot Wednesday night in the Nets' exhibition game against Sacramento in China.

Analysis: The Nets said Thursday that X-rays and a CT scan in New York revealed no fractures or bone injuries. Lopez missed most of last season after breaking the foot Dec. 21 during a game at Philadelphia.
10/15/2014 Yuki Togashi, PG The Dallas Mavericks have signed Togashi after he played on their summer league team.

Analysis: Togashi averaged 5.3 points in four summer league games. The native of Niigata, Japan, played high school basketball in the U.S. at the school that produced Kevin Durant.
10/15/2014 Steve Nash, PG Nash has missed his third straight practice after injuring his back while carrying bags.

Analysis: Coach Byron Scott said Nash had "a little bit of a setback" earlier Wednesday while carrying bags. Scott says Nash "heard a twinge" in his back, and the coach suspected it was a back spasm. The Lakers don't know how long the two-time NBA MVP will be out of action.
