Teodosic leaves game with foot injury
Los Angeles Clippers rookie guard Milos Teodosic left Saturday's game against the Phoenix Suns in the second quarter because of a left foot injury. The team said Teodosic would not return to the game. Teodosic was a starter on Saturday after recording six points and six assists in the other game he played this season.
Chris Paul out 2-4 weeks
Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will miss two to four weeks due to a bruised left knee, according to multiple reports on Friday. The nine-time All-Star was hampered by the knee in Tuesday's season-opening victory over the Golden State Warriors before sitting out the following night's game against the Sacramento Kings.
Houston coach Mike D'Antoni downplayed the seriousness of the injury earlier Friday when he revealed Paul would miss Saturday's game against the Dallas Mavericks. "It's only a bump," D'Antoni said. "It's not a tear or something like that. It's a bruise. We just have to make sure he's 100 percent the next time he plays."
Nets lose Lin for rest of season
Jeremy Lin is expected to miss the rest of the season after rupturing the patella tendon in his right knee. The Brooklyn Nets guard was hurt midway through the fourth quarter of his team's 140-131 loss Wednesday in the season opener at Indiana. He landed hard behind the baseline after a drive and was in tears as he clutched at his knee. Lin was limited to 36 games last season, mostly because of a left hamstring injury, while Brooklyn finished with the NBA's worst record.
Hayward unlikely to return this season
Gordon Hayward's first season with the Boston Celtics is probably over after five minutes of game action. Hayward underwent surgery Wednesday night to repair a fractured left tibia and dislocated left ankle, injuries that occurred early in the season opener Tuesday at Cleveland. Following the operation in Boston, Hayward's agent said that his client is unlikely to get back on the court this season.
Exum set for shoulder surgery
Utah Jazz guard Dante Exum will undergo shoulder surgery next week, the team announced Monday. The procedure, set for Oct. 24, is intended to stabilize the AC joint in Exum's separated left shoulder. The operation could threaten his season, although the Jazz did not offer a timetable for his recovery.
James uncertain for season opener
LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it's still not known if he'll play in Cleveland's season opener against Boston. James sat out the Cavaliers' first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss. James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on September 27.
McCollum suspended for season opener
Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum has been suspended for the regular-season opener after leaving the bench during an altercation in Wednesday's preseason game, the league announced Saturday. McCollum, 26, was given a one-game ban for the incident that occurred with 9:33 remaining in the fourth quarter of Portland's 113-104 preseason win against the Phoenix Suns.
Robinson to miss 3-4 months
Indiana Pacers forward Glenn Robinson III underwent successful ankle surgery Friday and is expected to return in three to four months. Robinson underwent the procedure to repair medial and lateral ligaments in his left ankle. The 23-year-old was injured driving to the basket during a scrimmage in practice on Sept. 29.
