Around the rim

New York Knicks: Point guard Baron Davis practiced for the first time this season with the Knicks, who hope he can solve some of their offensive woes when he's ready to play.

Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose says his sprained left big toe might bother him the rest of the season. Rose said the toe "is never going to be right this year." But he said he "felt decent" during Monday's shootaround and was able to start in Monday's game.
