Eastern Conference Updates: Sunday 11/29

Atlanta Hawks: Injury has held back Mike Bibby up to this point. He was uncertain in Friday's game against the 76er's, but finished with 21 points in the Hawks' 100-86 win.

Boston Celtics: Glen Davis is getting ready to return to the court after sitting out so far. He will remove his cast on December 2.

Charlotte Bobcats: Look out for the Bobcats. They have won four straight, and they're winning with the league's best defensive rating.

Chicago Bulls: Jerry Sloan praised Joakim Noah's rebounding. He is averaging 11.9 per game. Vinny del Negro says those rebounds are key "so we can get out in the open court."

Cleveland Cavaliers: Should LeBron James sign with the Knicks? Vote on the poll. 45% say yes.

Detroit Pistons: Austin Daye got his first start, taking the place of the injured Ben Gordon. Nothing notable, but 13 points is nothing to sneeze at for a first career start.

Indiana Pacers: The Pacers are starting to regain their health. Mike Dunleavy played his first game this season Friday, and Granger is starting again.

Miami Heat:
Eric Spoelstra said the Heat will quicken the pace in order to win more games. Dwyane Wade said teams would often trap him when defending him. If this helps the Heat win, it could aid them in attempting to re-sign Wade.

Milwaukee Bucks: Michael Redd is out with a soar knee again. His continuing injuries add to the already-injured Andrew Bogut and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.

New Jersey Nets:
The Nets' first win will be winning at losing. Unless they beat the Lakers, they will have tied the all-time record for losses to start a season with 17.

New York Knicks: Mike D'Antoni will consider starting Nate Robinson over Chris Duhon.

Orlando Magic:
Is Jameer Nelson overrated?

Philadelphia 76er's: Enough about Allen Iverson. Elton Brand didn't start for the second straight game. He's not completely healthy yet after a season-ending injury last year.

Toronto Raptors: Re-signing Chris Bosh might necessitate trading Andrea Bargnani.

Washington Wizards: Erick Blasco, a top NBA writer for Bleacher Report, gives a breakdown of the Wizards.
