NBA fans, hello and welcome to your daily round-up.

Just as a broken clock gets the time right twice a day, you can be assured that we’ll endeavour to give you the very latest news erm… once a day.

Enough fluff! Read on below or watch the video above for news that will hopefully be of interest to you. Let us know thoughts and opinions in the comments box provided.

McCollum could have faced Clippers

If you’ve ever made a clerical error before you’re sure to sympathise with the Portland Trail Blazers, who were left red-faced yesterday after accidentally leaving C.J McCollum off of the lineup card, as per Sports Illustrated.

The guard was forced to sit out of Portland’s clash with the Clippers, despite having warmed up and been of the assumption that he was going to play.

Instead, Allen Crabbe was announced and played the game, with a somewhat confused McCollum watching on from the bench.

Here are the highlights from last night's game:

Spurs go 21-0 at home

Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs continued their incredible home form by dispatching the Utah Jazz 123-98.

The Spurs have amassed a healthy 21-0 record at the AT&T Center - they’re refusing to give Golden State peace of mind at the top of the Western Conference.


Curry won't miss four weeks

Lastly, it’s good news for the Golden State Warriors; Stephen Curry has confirmed he won’t sit out four weeks to allow his shin injury to heal.

There were fears that the Warriors could be without the NBA’s reigning MVP for as long as a month, but Curry is looking at ways to protect his leg rather than give it the time to heal naturally.

Given how important the point guard has been so far, that will be music to the ears of all associated with the franchise.
