OAKLAND Dont expect Warriors guard Charlie Bell at training camp anytime soon.
According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Bell has been informed to stay in
Michigan and not to return to the Bay Area for practice. It is unclear whether the Warriors delivered that message to Bells agent, Mark Bartelstein, or to Bell himself.
Bell spent time in jail on Thursday after he showed up to court legally intoxicated for an appearance related to a DUI arrest.

Bell has also been told that the possibility exists that the team may use the amnesty provision on him, meaning he would be waived and his 4.1 salary would come off the books.
If the Warriors do that, it would almost certainly be to make a run at Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, a restricted free agent. According to reports, Jordan has five-year, 40 million offer in front of him from L.A.
The Warriors would likely have to offer Jordan more than that -- and then hope the Clippers dont match the offer. L.A. has three days to either match the offer or not match the offer.
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson will not repeat as the NBA All-Star Game's 3-point shootout champion.
In need of 19 points, Thompson managed only 18 -- that allowed Kemba Walker to advance into the semifinals.
Houston's Eric Gordon had the high score of the first round. He went on to win the championship -- besting Kyrie Irving.
Thompson has made 182 3-pointers this season which ranks him fifth in the league.
Kyrie Irving became a hot topic at All-Star weekend when the Cavs star point guard said he believes planet Earth is flat. No, really, he did.
And it looks like Irving may not be alone. Speaking to the media Saturday, Draymond Green made it known he may be a flat-earth truther too.
"I don't know. I haven't done enough research, but it may be flat," Green said.
For those calling Irving's theory of a flat earth crazy, Green is looking at it in a much different way.
"I wouldn't necessarily say crazy though," he continued with. "It's just his opinion. It's hard to call someone's opinion crazy, that's what he thinks.
"Who’s to say that picture [from NASA] is telling the truth? I can make a round picture with my iPhone today, on the panoramic camera, and make it look round. So, I don’t know. I’m not saying I think it’s flat or round, I don’t know, but it could be.”
Green didn't say definitively that the earth is flat like Irving did, but he sure wouldn't say it's round.
