(TSX / STATS) -- Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green added his name to a growing list of injured teammates in being ruled out for Thursday's home game against the Dallas Mavericks, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

Green is nursing a sore right shoulder that also held him out of Monday's 111-104 win over the Portland Trail Blazers. The reigning NBA Defensive Player of the Year is averaging 10.1 points and 7.2 rebounds this season.

Guard Nick Young (concussion) and center Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) will also sit out versus the Mavericks while two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry is expected to miss another week with a right ankle sprain.


Rockets F Mbah a Moute out 2-3 weeks

(TSX / STATS) -- Luc Mbah a Moute may have dodged a bullet with his shoulder injury.

An MRI exam on Mbah a Moute's right shoulder revealed no significant damage and the Houston Rockets forward could return within two to three weeks, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday.


Paul has 31 as Rockets extend run to 11

(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- Earlier in the week, Houston Rockets guard James Harden insisted that backcourt mate Chris Paul assert himself offensively. On Wednesday night, Paul required no such prodding.

Paul ran roughshod with the second unit, and Houston parlayed a run bridging the first and second quarters into a 108-96 victory over the Charlotte Hornets at Toyota Center.


George quiet in Indy return but OKC wins

(TSX / STATS) -- INDIANAPOLIS -- On a night when Oklahoma City's big three of Paul George, Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook all struggled from the field, the Thunder's Steven Adams was on target.

"He was great," Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. "He kept fighting for offensive rebounds and kept so many plays alive. He rim-protected and rolled to the basket. Those guys have confidence throwing the ball to him. Steven has gotten better finishing, but he's also gotten better at passing the ball out."


Wall returns as Wizards defeat Grizzlies

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- The return of John Wall did not immediately turn the Washington Wizards aesthetically, but they had enough to defeat the struggling Memphis Grizzlies.

Bradley Beal scored 18 points and John Wall had 13 in his return from a left knee injury as the Washington Wizards fended off the Memphis Grizzlies 93-87 on Wednesday.


Irving's 33 lift Celtics past Nuggets

(TSX / STATS) -- BOSTON -- Brad Stevens was relieved his Boston Celtics shot a season-high 59.5 percent from the floor at TD Garden on Wednesday night.

"That was the only way we were going to win tonight the way we were guarding and rebounding," the coach said after the Celtics also registered a season high for points in a 124-118 victory over the Denver Nuggets.


DeRozan has 37, Raptors go 3-1 on trip

(TSX / STATS) -- PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns' reserves kept the game interesting, but the Toronto Raptors' starting lineup showcased too much firepower.

DeMar DeRozan scored 18 of his 37 points in the third quarter, and Toronto's starters totaled 99 points in a 115-109 win over the Suns on Wednesday.


Lillard rallies Trail Blazers past Heat

(TSX / STATS) -- MIAMI -- The Miami Heat bench players, particularly Udonis Haslem, playfully acted as if they had fainted while watching a strong first-half shooting effort by teammate Wayne Ellington.

In the second half, the Heat wilted -- for real.


Cousins, Davis power Pelicans by Bucks

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW ORLEANS -- DeMarcus Cousins plays basketball in bold, broad strokes, perhaps because subtlety in the NBA usually is reserved for chumps.

The maddeningly talented New Orleans Pelicans center showed his entire yin-and-yang arsenal Wednesday night in a 115-108 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at the Smoothie King Center.


Williams scores 31 as Clippers top Magic

(TSX / STATS) -- ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Los Angeles Clippers have started winning the old fashioned way.
