First off, a thousand and one apologies for the massive site issues yesterday and Tuesday. It's a network-wide issue that the SB Nation tech folks have been working round the clock to remedy. Everything should be 100 percent back to normal by the end of the day. You've likely been more patient than I have over the past 48 hours, and that is appreciated.

Now as far actual news is concerned, Gorgui Dieng will not be competing in this week's NBA Draft Combine in Chicago after suffering a sprained ankle. Dieng is still in the second city and will be in the building when the action gets underway today, but he will not participate in any on-court drills. He expects to be back on the court early next week.

Gorgui continues to be projected across the Internet as a mid-first round pick. Mock drafts currently have him going as high as 13th and as low as 23rd.

Still just rooting for whatever team has the coolest jerseys/jersey shirts, because I will be making a purchase extremely soon after draft day.
