Veteran guard Willie Miller has been plucked out of semi-retirement and will get a chance to prove himself once more after being signed up by Talk ‘N Text for their upcoming PBA Commissioner’s Cup campaign.

The 37-year-old, two-time MVP told InterAksyon.com that he has agreed to terms with the Tropang Texters, a franchise he played several seasons for in the past.

“Try lang natin until next conference,” Miller wrote in a text message. “Sana makatulong ako sa kanila.”

MANILA - Former PBA Best Import awardee Marqus Blakely will be returning for the Purefoods Star Hotshots in the upcoming 2015 Commissioner's Cup.

However, the PBA website reported that this time, Blakely will play as a stand-in import for Purefoods as the Hotshots await NBA veteran Daniel Orton, who will only be available next month.

This time, the website added, Blakely will have the odds stacked against him as he is expected to play against bigger reinforcements.

NBA

CHICAGO -- Hassan Whiteside bounced around the NBA Development league and played in China and Lebanon, hoping NBA teams were keeping tabs and would give him an opportunity.

He was in Charlotte, working out at the downtown YMCA, a few months ago. He then got his chance with the Heat and he's making the most of it.

Whiteside had an unconventional triple-double with a career high 12 blocks to go with 14 points and 13 rebounds to help Miami beat the sluggish Chicago Bulls 96-84 Sunday.

D-League

MANILA, Philippines - The tape measure awaits eight imports still to be sized up before being declared eligible to play in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup starting tomorrow. So far, only five imports have been measured and one was disqualified for failing to make the limit. The other imports or those who are now in town will be measured in the PBA office today. In the queue are Meralco’s Josh Davis, Barangay Ginebra’s Michael Dunigan, Alaska’s D. J. Covington, Globalport’s Calvin (C. J.) Leslie, NLEX’ Al Thornton and Blackwater’s Chris Charles.

Cleared to play are Rain Or Shine’s 6-8 1/16 Rick Jackson, Kia’s 7-2 3/ 4 Peter John Ramos, Barako Bull’s 7-0 1/2 Solomon Alabi and Talk ‘N’ Text’s 6-6 15/16 Richard Howell. Globalport’s would-be import Rod Benson was measured at 6-9 1/8 when the limit for all the teams, except the last four placers in the Philippine Cup, is 6-9. There is no limit for the imports of the last four placers which are No. 9 Barako Bull, No. 10 NLEX, No. 11 Kia and No. 12 Blackwater.

Purefoods will be reinforced by Daniel Orton but the former University of Kentucky forward is still playing in the Chinese league. Coach Tim Cone has recalled Marqus Blakely to suit up on an interim basis as the Hotshots are set to make their second conference debut on Jan. 30. Orton may not be available until the first week of February. If Blakely is Cone’s pick to play for the meantime, he will also report for measurement today.

Brooklyn Nets swingman Joe Johnson revealed he has recently been playing through tendinitis.

"I've just got tendinitis real bad in my right knee and in my left ankle," Johnson told Newsday following his team's blowout loss Saturday night in Utah. "I've been playing with both of them and been pretty banged up for probably about the past month and a half or so. We don't have time to have guys sit and rest, like some other teams do. We just don't have the roster for that, so I just have to play through it."

In 13 games during January, Johnson, 33, is shooting just 36.2 percent from the field and averaging 13.1 points in 36.7 minutes.
