InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 2:00 p.m. ET. More stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog.
The Los Angeles Clippers announced today they have signed guard Lester Hudson to a 10-day contract. Hudson comes to the Clippers from the Chinese Basketball Association where he is a two-time MVP (2014, 2015) and three-time All-Star (2012, 2014, 2015). Most recently, Hudson played for Liaoning where he averaged 31.2 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 50 games. Inside Hoops
The team has been monitoring guard Nate Robinson, who suffered a bone bruise in his left knee before his second 10-day contract expired. Hudson's signing would indicate Robinson isn't quite ready to return. OC Register
Shooting guard Monta Ellis will miss a game for the first time during his two-season tenure with the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs’ leading scorer has been ruled out for Sunday night’s road game against the Indiana Pacers due to a right calf injury suffered during Friday night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs. It will end Ellis’ streak of 237 consecutive games played, which dates to the 2012-13 season opener. ESPN Dallas
Coach Rick Carlisle said the Mavs did not have a firm timetable for Ellis’ return, but they do not consider the injury serious. “He’s off crutches, but he’s still very sore,” Carlisle said. “It’s not considered serious, but it is something that’s a great concern for us.” ESPN Dallas
Carlisle said the Mavericks goal is to get Ellis and Barea as healthy as possible before the playoffs begin in less than three weeks. "When they're healthy, we'll have them back playing down the stretch of the regular season," he said. "But they got to be healthy and neither one of these guys is ready to go." Dallas Morning News
The Golden State Warriors have clinched the best record in the Western Conference for the 2014-15 season following tonight’s 108-95 road victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, improving to 60-13 and securing the best record in the conference for the first time since 1975-76. In doing so, Golden State established a new single-season franchise wins record, earning 60 wins in a single campaign for the first time in the team’s 69-year history, besting the previous wins record of 59 set in 1975-76.

The Knicks’ atrocious season officially became the worst in franchise history with Saturday night’s 31-point loss to the Bulls in Chicago. The defeat marked the 60th of the season for the Knicks making them the first team in the franchise’s history to reach that level of ineptitude. NY Post
As if the Knicks haven’t suffered enough embarrassment already this season, the Bulls’ Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler joined the crowd in the wave as it passed behind the Bulls bench. NY Post
The Rockets welcomed back center Dwight Howard from a significant knee injury this week, but he will be limited to about 20 minutes. Howard had 18 points and four rebounds in 20 minutes in Friday’s win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Friday. Washington Post
