According to Jerry Meyer of 247Sports, Zimmerman is expected to make a commitment to UNLV in the near future.  Sources close to Zimmerman, who is from Las Vegas, say the 6-11 Center will be choosing to play closer to home. - DeMarcus Cousins will not be playing in the final three games for the Sacramento Kings of the 2014-2015 NBA regular season due to an injury to his right ankle and other leg injuries. - How do Calipari-era players fare in the NBA? Sports Illustrated has an interesting article where they break down the success of the one-and-done players from Kentucky. SI writer Alex Putterman suggests the success of former Cats in the NBA prove that Calipari doesn't deserve some of the hate generated by the one-and-done argument.
"Based on the success of Kentucky’s one-and-dones, no credible argument can claim Calipari casts away his players indiscriminately or against their best interests."
- Check out this video of Julius Randle practicing some moves. It seems the former Cat is on the mend after breaking his leg in his first NBA game for the Lakers earlier this season. - Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has not played for the Charlotte Hornets since March 28 due to a sprained left ankle and the Hornets are missing him. According to an article from ESPN, Kidd-Gilchrist's development has helped the Hornets this year on the court.
"One of the few bright spots has been Kidd-Gilchrist's development. The Hornets are 27-28 this year with him in the lineup and 7-18 without him. Opponents score fewer points, shoot worse and get to the free throw line fewer times when he is on the floor."
