NBA Free Agency Unkind To Adam Morrison. Spain, Italy Next Options?

Jan Vesely returns to practice but can’t finish because of nagging hip injury

Jan Vesely, the Wizards’ top pick in the 2011 draft, practiced fully Wednesday for the first time since Saturday but couldn’t finish because of a nagging right hip injury that relegated him to the exercise bike.

The NBA season is still two days away from tipping off, but we already know the player who is most committed to his team this season.

It's been easy to forget the past few months, what with the lockout and the powers that be meddling in team affairs, but basketball is a beautiful game.  High flying slam dunks, gorgeous crossovers, a beautifully executed give and go - basketball is an art form.  So, with that in mind, The Hoops Manifesto is putting an artistic twist on your run of the mill NBA team previews...

Wizards preseason: missed dunks, highlight dunks and airballs

Blogging about the Wizards’ preseason loss to the 76ers last night bears certain similarities to blogging about just about every Wizards game last season.
