Nothing like a national holiday to put a guy behind the eight-ball. Today is a catch-up version of the Roundup, and I've cut a corner here by foregoing the mini-analysis I do for each game above the box score. Other than that, this will bring you up-to-date with boxes, news and leaders, and we'll get back to our normal routine beginning tomorrow.

NEWS & MOVES

Minutiae from around the league

GRIZZLIES: "Police say Hamed Haddadi of the Memphis Grizzlies and his girlfriend have been charged with assault following an altercation between the two. Memphis police were called Thursday morning to a downtown apartment building and found Haddadi, a backup center from Iran, and his girlfriend with bruises and scratches. The arrest report says a verbal disagreement turned physical, and both Haddadi and Goolnaz "Asal" Karbalaeinematmoeeney were taken to the Regional Medical Center for treatment. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said in a statement that the team is aware of the incident and withheld comment while they gathered facts. Haddadi has played in only four of the Grizzlies' first 15 games." (Associated Press)
Haddadi has to be one of the most mysterious figures in the NBA. He emerges from Iran each fall, then brooks at the end of the Memphis bench, every once in awhile grousing about playing time. Now it turns out that he and Ms. Karbalaeinematmoeeney have a Sid & Nancy routine going, presumably after a disagreement over the pronunciation of her last name.

NETS: "The New Jersey Nets have assigned second year guard/forward Terrence Williams to their NBA Development League affiliate, The Springfield Armor, Nets General Manager Billy King announced today. 'After discussing the situation with Avery over the last several days, I feel the best course of action for Terrence and the team at this time is for him to play in the D-League,' said King. 'He is currently on the inactive list and this move will allow him to play until he is once again placed on the active list. There is no timetable on his return to the active list, and Terrence's future status will be addressed at the appropriate time.'" (press release)
This is an unsual use of the D-League--temporary place of exile for malcontents. Avery Johnson is a my-way-or-the-highway guy, but he needs to get on the same page with Williams. He's too talented and skilled to be squandered.

WARRIORS: "Warriors forward David Lee has been given clearance by doctors to resume light conditioning work after having the stitches removed from his injured left arm and the PICC-line (a peripherally inserted central catheter for IVís) removed from his right arm. Lee, who remains in Oakland and is working out at the teamís practice facility with Director of Athletic Development Mark Grabow, will be re-examined on Friday.". (press release)
Golden State lost six of seven without Lee in the lineup.

WIZARDS: "Al Thornton was understandably disappointed on Thanksgiving. He was back in his home state of Georgia, but won't be able to play against the Hawks tonight because of a sprained left ankle that he aggravated in the first quarter of the Wizards' 116-114 win over Philadelphia two days before. But Thornton said the ankle injury will likely keep him out for "a couple of games," especially since it is the same ankle that forced him to miss two games in the preseason. He said that he tweaked the ankle last week in Boston but it worsened when he went up for a block and landed on JaVale McGee's foot. " (Washington Post)
In the same article, it was noted that 'Yi (Jianlian) will miss his sixth consecutive game after suffering a hyperexteneded right knee against Chicago on Nov. 13. Saunders said earlier this week that Yi is a ways away from returning.'

Note: WTC is a junk stat rating the "watchability" of a game, taking into
account the quality of the opponents and the likelihood of a close game.

Through Tuesday, 259 of 1,230 games (21.1 percent) have been played in the 2010-11 NBA regular season.

GLOSSARY
+/- (Plus-Minus) Raw data is from official box scores from NBA.com.
GR (Game Rating) Reflects a player's Points Created total, or the portion of his team's offense for which he gets credit based on his box score line. This number is then adjusted for estimated defensive performance based on box score counterpart productivity. GR is pace-adjusted so you can compare players from game to game.
PCP (Points Created Per Possession Used) An estimate of each player's points created per possession used, a measure of offensive efficiency. The stat accounts for a player's entire box score line, not just the scoring categories.
PLY% (Play percentage) An estimate of the percentage of a team's possessions on which the player was on the court.
USG An estimate of how many of those plays a player used by shooting, going to the line or committing a turnover, with a portion the team's offensive rebound total subtracted.
TEAM STATS
PACE: Estimated possessions in the game.
ORTG: A team's points per 100 possessions.
eFG%: Team's shooting percentage with an extra half-point added for each made three-point field goal.
oRB%: Percentage of a team's misses that they retrieved off the offensive glass.
TO%: Percentage of at team's possessions resulting in a turnover.
FTA%: Percentage of a team's possessions resulting in a trip to the foul line.
