Pierce says Carlisle is doing better. “He said he was feeling great.” -through the Twitter @TEastNBA / December 12, 2021
Have you had to explain to others why getting more tested for coronavirus is a good thing? [The league and union agreed to require additional testing, even for vaccinated players, after Thanksgiving, which has coincided with an uptick in positive tests.] CJ McCollum: I think when we explain to people how important it is to know – there are a lot of things that are rated as positive but are asymptomatic. So I think testing on holidays when people are on a plane or traveling, family is coming in from the suburbs, you’re gathering, you’re going to be more exposed. It just makes sense and the only bad thing that can come from it is realizing that you are a positive person. But the good news is that you find out early and you can save and not expose some of your friends and family. -through the New York Times / December 12, 2021
Rod Boone: Terry Rozier is no longer on the league’s health and safety list and off the injury list, so he will be available for tomorrow’s game against Dallas. LaMelo, Mason Plumlee, Jalen McDaniels and Ish Smith are all absent. PJ Washington (non-COVID disease) has a problem. -through the Twitter @rodboone / December 12, 2021
