NBA Rumors for Monday, October 20

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 1:00 p.m. ET. More NBA rumors stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog.

nba rumors Because of a sore right knee, the Wizards held out Paul Pierce from practice Sunday because he still was sore after a collision in the previous preseason game. Pierce likely won't play Monday when the Wizards play their seventh of eight exhibitions. Glen Rice (right ankle sprain) will be out though he was getting up shots after practice. He didn't do any cutting over lateral movement. Pierce bumped knees with Kemba Walker of the Charlotte Hornets in Friday's 96-86 loss. CSN Washington

Kris Humphries, who hasn't played since the preseason opener two weeks ago, is expected to get stitches removed from his right hand Monday. Humphries attempted to block a shot vs. the Chicago Bulls, catching his hand on the rim. The injury required eight stitches between his ring and pinkie fingers and then he had surgery to repair nerve damage. CSN Washington

nba rumors The criticism comes in waves, all of it soaked with a generous dose of old-school, tough-love philosophies. Yes, Los Angeles Lakers coach Byron Scott said he is hard on Julius Randle, the teamís top draft choice. But that doesnít mean Scott plans to ease up on the rookie power forward out of Kentucky, the seventh-overall pick in Juneís draft. ESPN LA

Randle is the youngest player on the Lakersí roster -- guard Steve Nash is more than twice his age, in fact -- but expectations are high, and so far, Randle has struggled, scoring just four points in each of the teamís last two preseason games. ESPN LA

ďNah, Iím not really lost,Ē Randle said. ďI would say itís not even the pace of the game. We have to learn how to play with each other. Thatís why we go through (the) offense and try to run the offense so much. ďSome people donít know the plays, some people donít know the pace, and so we all have issues that weíre struggling with individually. But the biggest thing is weíve just got to learn how to play with each other and learn how to read each other.Ē ESPN LA

nba rumors Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge has reportedly signed with Jordan Brand and will now exclusively wear Jordan retro and team model shoes both on and off court, according to Trail Blazers team reporter Casey Holdahl. Oregonian

A judge who was on the verge of allowing a defamation suit by Donald Sterling's mistress to go forward decided Friday to reconsider after hearing from a lawyer for Shelley Sterling. Attorney Pierce O'Donnell called the filing by V. Stiviano an act of spite and revenge against the estranged wife of the former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. O'Donnell filed a motion to dismiss Stiviano's suit in what is known as an anti-SLAPP motion against retaliatory actions. AP

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed legislation Friday that partially repeals the state's sports betting prohibitions and clears the way for casinos and racetracks to begin taking bets as soon as next weekend. Monmouth Park, one of the state's oldest thoroughbred tracks, has said it will offer sports betting starting Sunday, Oct. 26. Christie signed the bill just one day after the state assembly passed the legislation with overwhelming support. "As I've said all along, I am a strong proponent of legalized sports wagering in New Jersey," Christie said in a statement. "But given earlier decisions by federal courts, it was critical that we follow a correct and appropriate path to curtail new court challenges and expensive litigation. I believe we have found that path in this bipartisan legislative effort." ESPN.com
