NBA Injury News:
BEST OF MAXIM
Charlie Villanueva is taking advantage of Andre Drummond's injury (out four to six weeks with a fractured tailbone). Charlie V. lit up the Milwaukee Bucks with 18 points (7-13 FG), knocking down four 3-pointers in the Pistons' 105-100 win.
Villanueva made it a double-double with 13 rebounds, and added an assist and a block in 25 minutes. Another productive outing for...
For those who have been fortune enough to either play with or help coach Jose Calderon during 7-year NBA career, the one word you often hear used should not come as a shock: professional.
Regardless if he was running the show in Toronto, fending off annual trade rumors and now even during his early days in Detroit, Calderon remains a true pro since being traded to the Pistons back...
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- J.J. Redick scored 22 points, Nikola Vucevic added 17 points and 19 rebounds, and the Orlando Magic snapped a 12-game losing streak with a 110-104 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night.
The Magic shot 50 percent from the field in earning their first win since Jan. 16. They play their next two games at home. Reserve Gustavo Ayon had 16 points...
Leading up to this month’s NBA trade deadline, it appeared all but a sure bet that the Orlando Magic would trade J.J. Redick. While it’s been reported that multiple teams, including the Chicago Bull, Indiana Pacers, Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics, are interest in Redick, the Magic have told the sharpshooter that they’re not “actively trying to move” him, reports Josh...
The Magic were too determined to lose this one.
Not after going through 12 games of bitter disappointment and strong play let down by momentary lapses. Not after seeing so many guys go down to injury and so many leads dissipate or margins grow.
The losing streak has been frustrating to watch. The Magic have had opportunities slip away and the team was clearly not satisfied...

Season Series: Lost 125-119 in Portland on Jan. 7; Tonight in Orlando
One of the bigger questions for the Magic entering the season was how would the team defend?
Offense was predictably going to be a problem without a player who could create his own shot consistently unless someone really stepped up. Jameer Nelson, Arron Afflalo, Glen Davis and J.J. Redick have each taken turns carrying the offensive load. But there have been plenty of games where...
Donny Deutsch guest hosted for Piers Morgan last night on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight for your basic run-of-the-mill primetime cable news show. There are few more loathesome things on television than primetime cable news, except for possibly Toddlers & Tiaras and First Take. In fact, primetime cable news is pretty much everything terrible about everything on television...
After dropping three straight heading into the weekend the Pistons capped off an impressive 24 hours with a 105-100 win over the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday night from the Bradley Center. This of course comes after a dominating performance against the league leading San Antonio Spurs Friday night from the Palace.
Detroit used three separate double-doubles to help propel themselves to...
Our buddy @WorldofIsaac ventured to the Palace of Auburn Hills last night for the Pistons-Hornets game and snapped this shot of the massive crowd that turned out to watch New Orleans win, 105-86. The announced attendance was 10,177. The place holds 22,000.
As you can see, there are four upper deck sections without a single customer. Sure, we’re talking about the 20 win Pistons...
