  2. Oregon Live: Trail Blazers center Joel Przybilla says he is '90 percent' sure he will make season debut Friday
  3. "It's going to be slow working him back in the rotation,'' McMillan said. "Start off maybe 10 minutes and hopefully it increases to 20 minutes. But he will give us a presence. Then, once he gets out there and is comfortable playing and establishes his rhythm, how do we use him?'"

  4. Columbian: Blazers spread holiday cheer
  5. “I think reminds you how fortunate we are, and not just because we make the kind of money that we do, but just that we have jobs and are able to provide for our families,” Blazers guard Brandon Roy said. “Now we get to give back a little bit. It’s a great event.”

  6. Rip City Project: Who’s Your Franchise Player?
  7. "With the right coaching, any of the Franchise Player candidates would make great representatives for the Blazers. At the same time each comes with limitations. Andre Miller is shy and reserved, Nicolas Batum and Rudy Fernandez have problems with the language, LaMarcus Aldridge has a bit of a standoffish personality. Here again, Wesley Matthews separates himself a little from the field. That’s mostly because we know so little about him. As only a second-year player, and one that wasn’t on the radar of casual fans too much last year and definitely not during his college days, he is still very very new. This could play to his favor. Like a draft pick, Wesley could be prepped for life as a Franchise Player."

  8. Ball Don't Lie: Nick Collison's goofball contract extension
  9. "Nick entered this season making $6.75 million in his final year with the Thunder. But after last night, he'll be making an All-Star level $13.3 million this year with the Thunder. How is that even legal, in a salary cap sense? Well, as Marc Stein reports, Oklahoma City GM essentially gave him a $6.5-plus signing bonus for this season alone. Signing bonuses usually aren't common in the NBA, because you have to fit any level of payoff (right down to free TVs or ducats) underneath the salary cap. You have to report it, and most teams are perpetually over the salary cap with no space left to offer.."

  10. ESPN: Awards Watch
  11. "Of course, New Orleans wasn't going to go 81-1, but to lose to the one-win Clippers?"

  12. ESPN: Daily Dime
  13. "After missing four games with a sprained foot, Wall struggled in the first half against the Sixers. He made up for it after intermission, scoring 25, including three free throws with 3.5 seconds left that forced OT in what ended up being a Wizards win. "

  14. Oregon Live: NBA High-5: Struggling Miami Heat are giving their fans reasons not to show up at all
  15. "Another video the Heat might want to censor: the one showing their 93-77 loss to the Pacers in which Miami scored 13 points in the fourth quarter. You expect national and out-of-town writers to rip on the Heat, but the locals are doing it, too."
