Shootaround 2.3.11: Getting better all the time

Injuries improving, the Cavaliers are sad, Paul Pierce wants Ray in the 3-Point Contest so he can beat him. Shootaround.

Trevor Ariza severely sprained his ankle in last night's loss to the Timberwolves, and is out indefinitely. Ariza's had another inconsistent season, but he's still a significant part of the Hornets, who are now without two starters as Okafor continues to recover. They can't afford to lose too many guys more. 

Marcus Camby says he's close to returning. His coach says he's out a "few more weeks." Which is it? Maybe Nate's just used to saying (X player) will be out "a few more weeks" and responded by reflex. 

Scott Skiles says Brandon Jennings' minute restriction could be lifted soon.

Does the league need to do a better job of screening ownership? Maybe if they had done that in the beginning, contraction wouldn't be such a hot topic right now. 

Derrick Rose is the type to hold grudges, which is partially why he beat the Clippers, and partially why his free throw shooting has improved so much.
