News from February 13.

The NBA named Ray Allen (Bos) to replaced the injured Caron Butler (Was)
in the All-Star game.

Trade failed: There were lots of talk about a Dallas-New Jersey trade that
was in the works involving Devin Harris, Jerry Stackhouse, DeSagana Diop,
Devean George, and Maurice Ager plus picks and cash for Jason Kidd and
Malik Allen. That trade scenario fell through when George exercised his
option to refuse the trade (as a veteran on a 1 year contract). The
non-injured Dallas players did play in Wednesday's game, but New Jersey
did not play Jason Kidd as they thought the trade was going to occur.

Chris Mihm (LAL) underwent surgery on his right heel to removed a screw.
He is expected to be out 6 more weeks.

Dallas activated Nick Fazekas and placed Jerry Stackhouse on IL with a
strained right hamstring. Fazekas was recalled from the NBADL.

Golden State activated Brandan Wright and placed Chris Webber on IL.

Milwaukee activated Awvee Storey and placed Charlie Villanueva on IL with
a sprained right ankle.

Minnesota activated Rashad McCants and placed Mark Madsen on IL.

New York activated Nate Robinson and placed Jerome James on IL.

Toronto activated Maceo Baston and placed T.J. Ford on IL with a sprained
right wrist.

Atlanta activated Lorenzen Wright and placed Josh Childress on IL with a
hyperextended right knee.

Orlando activated Keyon Dooling and placed James Augustine on IL.
