Notes from practice: January 27

Most of the fellows hightailed it out of practice with the quickness today, so not much on the player front to report. There were a few things of interest, specifically in regards to Steve Blake.

• Nate McMillan suspected that Blake would be listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Bobcats, with Blake himself all but stating definitively that he wouldn't play. Blake noted that he doesn't mind playing through pain, but that the shoulder, especially after going almost full speed into a pick, was too sore to overcome.

• Blake did dress for practice, but I don't beleive he participated.

• Jerryd Bayless stayed after practice for a long time today working with assistant coach Joe Prunty. It was extended run even for Bayless, who is already almost always the last guy out the building.

• Brandon Roy, as far as I know, did not embarrass anybody by thunderdunking on their dome.

• LaMarcus Aldridge said his ear is getting better, which is good news. He can now hear out of both ears. Bonus.

Video of Nate McMillan and Steve Blake's comments to come.

As happy as I was to see Blake play last night, his shot was definitely not there because of that shoulder pad. If he's not able to shoot just yet he may as well sit out against the Bobcats.
