Your morning links. Happy Friday.
- The Times-Picayune reports that Chris Paul returned to a light Hornets practice yesterday. The same article notes that Chris Paul will be evaluated again today to determine whether or not he can return to game action tomorrow against the Sacramento Kings.
- Marco Belinelli's flagrant foul on Shawn Marion has been upgraded to a Flagrant 2 and now carries with it a $10,000 fine. It looks like he will escape a potential suspension however.
- If you missed Paul's story on concussions in the NBA yesterday, check it out here. The AP also has a story noting that NBA players would welcome a league wide concussion policy.
- Finally, my recommended link for the day: Brett Martel has a nice piece on Jarrett Jack, his "refocusing" after his recent DUI, and his drive to make the postseason for the first time in his career.
