Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo out with knee soreness

Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo did not play Wednesday against the Suns because of right knee soreness.

I’m thankful for the NHL players who are like no other athletes on and off the ice. Phenomenal humans. Superheroes on skates.

Plus, there’s nothing better than drinking from the Stanley Cup. I did so the night the Rangers won the Cup. To this day, I can’t identify the liquid I was drinking, but why ruin a good story?

I’m most thankful for the shape of the game these days — the rush, the speed, the skill, the dearth of clutching-and-grabbing. It’s no coincidence that because the rules are being more strictly enforced, that the more talented players are getting more space and time to show us what they can do. A drop pass, a between-the-legs shot, a diving stick save. After all, these are the most talented all-around athletes in the world, so they should be able to show what they can do, right?

The forward suffered the injury Saturday during a win over the Philadelphia 76ers. He then missed Sunday’s victory at Brooklyn.

The crowd chanted “cupcake” all evening, and Durant even engaged in a verbal exchange with Russell Westbrook.

Durant said Tuesday it was a “pretty fun moment to be a part of” and added that he knows what to expect this time around.

“It’s just a regular game for me now,” he said. “I learned how to tune out the crowd, I learned how to tune out the bulls—.”

Durant had to tune out another slew of boos from the Chesapeake Energy Arena crowd as the Thunder fans loudly let him know they still remember he left the organization.

Several times, Khan pleads to Woodcock that he’s already on the record about where he stands on Trump. He’s referring to a New York Times story from Super Bowl week in February, in which Khan said he opposed Trump’s travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries. He hadn’t Brendan Perlini Authentic Jersey been looking to make a statement then; he’d just happened to bump into Times reporter Ken Belson in Houston.

For me it was personal, and what triggered it was really the anti-Islamic, anti-immigrant rant, Khan says. There weren’t too many Muslim immigrants at the Super Bowl. Ken Belson asked me and I told him, because I think I have a that’s how I feel.

It’s hard to imagine the Packers surviving this blow and making the playoffs this year. If they do, it will be the best coaching job in McCarthy’s career.

Prescott’s second season has presented different challenges, start after last year’s 13-3 record, but the pressure of being the starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys doesn’t compare to the conversation he had in the summer of 2012 before his redshirt freshman year of college: His mom, Peggy, broke the news to her youngest son that she had Stage 4 colon cancer. If you’re not tripping, Prescott replied, I’m not tripping.

Peggy Prescott succumbed to the disease in November 2013, just as her son’s star on the football field was taking off. After her death, he would catapult Mississippi State to the No. 1 ranking for five weeks during the fall of 2014, and he’d earn the most important job in Dallas, where he changed his jersey to No. 4 in honor of Peggy’s birthday. If you know anything about Prescott, you almost certainly know about his mom. That’s how Prescott wants it to be.

Coleman was immediately re-inserted as a full-timer, playing 51 of 55 offensive snaps, including 37 of 39 pass plays. Coleman is averaging a generous 23 percent target share (7.1 per game) in his career and that volume is enough to keep him on the flex radar regardless of the team’s quarterback woes. On the negative side, Coleman faces a pair of tough secondaries on the road in Cincinnati and Los Angeles over the next two weeks.

Sergei Bobrovsky had 22 saves for Columbus in his third shutout this season and 22nd of his career. Mike Smith turned away 40 shots for Calgary.

It was the first time this season that either team ended regulation scoreless.

The Jackets outshot Calgary 2-1 for much of the game.

The Flames, however, dominated puck possession in the first 90 seconds of overtime before the Jackets pushed into the offensive zone.

Calgary’s T.J. Brodie Linus Ullmark Youth jersey sought to set up play from behind his own net, but the puck rolled off onto the stick of Nick Foligno, who sent it to Anderson for the game-winner.

Limited Brandon Shell Jersey And I’d be remiss to forget about some all-time great names such as Zarley Zalapski, John Ogrodnick, Dave Snuggerud, Roman Cechmanek, Jeff Beukeboom, Dominik Hasek, Radek Bonk, Miroslav Satan, Hakan Loob or John Vanbiesbrouck. Only in hockey circles does it become second nature to be able to spell Tkachuk like it were our own last name, with father Keith siring current Flames forward Matthew Tkachuk and top draft prospect Brady Tkachuk.

McCaffrey has yet to carry the ball within 9 yards of the goal line but has two end zone targets.

There’s not a person in our clubhouse — coach, player, executive — that’s not rooting for him in particular to finish strong and get a ring, said Astros manager A.J. Hinch, who played with Beltran with the Royals in 2001 and 2002. His career, when you look back at it, he’s as remarkable as anyone I’ve ever been around. He’s the best player that I ever played with.

DeAndre Washington, RB, Oakland Raiders: The winner of the Raiders’ running back-by-committee battle on Sunday, a game Marshawn Lynch missed due to suspension, was Washington, whose 20.8 PPR fantasy points easily exceeded Jalen Richard’s 8.6. Washington outpaced Richard in terms of both total touches (14-10) and starting percentage in ESPN leagues (27.0 to 18.0 percent), but it’s unclear whether his performance will be enough to earn him a larger role when Lynch returns to action in Week 9. Washington is still worth keeping stashed in PPR formats, where his 27 targets in eight games gives him a chance at helping teams out of the flex spot in a pinch.

Jamison Crowder, WR, Washington Redskins: For the first time all season, Crowder managed a double-digit fantasy point total, his 22.5 using PPR scoring easily his best all year and in fact just 3.2 shy of his career best (25.7, 2016 Week 8). It was a performance that reminded of his 2016 breakthrough, as he was targeted 13 times and had nine catches. Crowder is suddenly looking like the Redskins’ de facto No.

Dante Fowler Jr Womens Jersey WWE had a perfect opportunity to put the world title on Braun Strowman and freshen up their weekly format on Raw, but the decision was made to sacrifice Strowman for Lesnar, Authentic Mike Gartner Jersey as well as John Cena for Reigns, to build up to the inevitable showdown at ‘Mania.

Bills acquire WR Kelvin Benjamin in trade with Panthers

In a deal that was completed minutes before the NFL’s trade deadline Tuesday, the Carolina Panthers dealt top wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin to the Buffalo Bills for a third-round pick and a seventh-round pick in the 2018 draft.

Some rookies could get abused by Wall and Lowry in consecutive games. When he has been on some of the better point guards, Ball has managed to stay in front of them for the most part, and he has been able to swipe down and cause turnovers when big men drive with the ball on help defense. Defensively, Ball was OK, but he will learn how to better defend the likes of Rubio and pick-and-rolls.

What Ball did do much better in Utah was knock down his perimeter shot. After shooting 1-for-14 from behind the arc in his previous three games, Ball made 3 of 6 3-pointers against Utah. Those were actually his only baskets of the night, as he finished 3-for-10 overall.

Ball did have one terrific pass that would have made Stockton and Malone proud Saturday, as he fired a bullet in the air from just beyond half court on the run ahead of a streaking Brandon Ingram, who caught it like a wide receiver on a slant and took it in for a score.

Smith-Schuster, the youngest player in the NFL (he won’t turn 21 until Nov. 22), had his biggest game of his rookie season (seven catches, 193 yards, one TD) at the ideal time Sunday night. His 97-yard scoring catch-and-run from Ben Roethlisberger in the third quarter broke Pittsburgh out of a field-goal fest in Detroit. He then helped clinch the 20-15 win over the Lions with a 4-yard catch on a shovel pass for a first down in the final minute.

Smith-Schuster had scored three times before Week 8 with limited targets, but now he has emerged as a vital offensive component, almost as essential as running back Le’Veon Bell or go-to wide receiver Antonio Brown.ducks-095

But before the Wolverines went on their WNIT run, coach Kim Barnes Arico endured what she called “probably one of the most disappointing nights of my life.” That was Selection Monday, when Steve Atwater Jersey Michigan didn’t get an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament, a crushing blow for a team that saw making the Big Dance as a major goal.

It all starts at the line of scrimmage with Garoppolo’s ability to identify coverages, find the matchups and get the ball out.

Here’s a prime example against a quality Arizona defense back in Week 1: Garoppolo reads the pre-snap rotation of the safeties and takes advantage of the matchup outside of the numbers with Chris Hogan.

But the Cubans were caught in the rundown between East Sam Steel Youth jersey and West, socialism and capitalism, George H.W. Bush and Fidel Castro. In the name of détente, the two countries agreed to play each other in a series of games, home and away, as part of the walk-up to the Barcelona Olympics, the first in which baseball was a medal sport. Cuba wanted to get the better of the USA on the field. The US wanted to win the game off of it.

What’s stands out about Watson is his poise and awareness. He’s set NFL records by being the first rookie to throw for three or more touchdowns in four consecutive games. He’s tied with Carson Wentz at the top of the league with 19 passing touchdowns so far this season. That also beat Kurt Warner’s record of 18 touchdown passes through the first seven games of his career.

The Texans are just 3-4, but Watson’s made them a contender in the AFC South. They’ve got a bright future with an exciting franchise quarterback, unlike so many other teams are still looking for after years of trying.

After Game 6, Darvish addressed his Game 3 performance.

Game Youth Nicklas Grossmann Jersey After the first two games, I heard that Keuchel Lance Stephenson Womens Jersey and Verlander were talking about the ball was flying, and I knew that, Darvish said. But before the bullpen on toward the third game, I threw a bullpen session with a regular-season ball. I didn’t really realize until I got to the mound, and I knew that my slider wasn’t breaking and sharp. And after the game, I came back and I realized that my slider, I couldn’t finish my pitches. I couldn’t get that final touch. And then it just didn’t make sense.

And then I read about the ball being slick. And I really didn’t know if it was my physical thing and mechanical adjustment that I had to make or the ball. I can’t really say it. But that’s it. And I just need to learn from it and go tomorrow night.

Stolen from Pro Football Focus: Dallas center Travis Frederick has not allowed a sack in his last 1,658 pass blocks, since midseason 2014. That’s almost three full seasons of protecting Dallas quarterbacks on pass drops.

Another deep-league addition to consider, Len is averaging 11.8 points and 8.8 rebounds over the past four games for a Phoenix team that proves entirely thin past Tyson Chandler at center, affording this mercurial big enough minutes to matter.

This trade was an absolute fleecing, a foolish deal consummated by the Colts out of desperation. Richardson had scored 11 touchdowns in his rookie season but did not have the playmaking ability expected from a No. 3 overall pick.

Speaking of substantial shifts in efficiency, Utah’s Ricky Rubio is not only the same special distributor and defender he’s long been, he now stretches the floor with nearly two made 3-pointers per game, adding needing scoring pop to his impressive fantasy stock. Getting cheap shares of Rubio and Rodney Hood could prove rewarding for those seeking an infusion of guard play at what should be reasonable pricing.

Nationals announce hiring of Dave Martinez as new manager

We are delighted to bring Dave aboard and excited about what he will bring to our clubhouse and our dugout, Theodore N. Lerner, managing principal owner of the Nationals, said in a statement. We have been very clear about our goals as an organization and we feel confident we’ve found the right man to help us reach them.

Martinez becomes the seventh full-time manager for the Nats since they moved from Montreal before the 2005 season. A former outfielder who played for nine different teams during his 16 years in the majors, he spent three and a half seasons with the Expos. Martinez’s 431 games played for the Expos are his most for any franchise. Martinez ranks among the top 20 in franchise history in several categories, including his 22 triples (tied for 15th), his 68 stolen bases (18th) and his 70.83 stolen-base percentage (17th).

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 34 points, Kristaps Porzingis had 32 and the Knicks won for the second time after losing their first three games.

Cleveland, which was blown out by Orlando at home and lost to Brooklyn during this stretch, fell below .500. The Cavaliers were routed 123-101 in New Orleans on Saturday.

Authentic Youth Devin Hester Jersey Tonight’s loss and the last couple are unacceptable, coach Tyronn Lue said.

The Cavaliers are favorites to return to Michal Rozsival Jersey the NBA Finals for the fourth straight season, but their issues continued, particularly on the defensive end.

Guys are scoring at will against us, James said. Our defense is pretty bad right now.

Cleveland has won seven straight in the series at home.

On Saturday, the National Women’s Hockey League opened its third season, with the Metropolitan Riveters playing their first home game at the Prudential Center against the Boston Pride. The day was historic for the league as the first NWHL game played in an NHL arena. Fans traveled from all over the country to see the game, which was the first of a hockey doubleheader. In the second game, the NHL’s New Jersey Devils hosted the Arizona Coyotes. We went to chat with dedicated NWHL fans.

Cavaliers: Cleveland’s loss to Orlando snapped a 17-game winning streak against the Magic. … Power forward Tristan Thompson had one point, no rebounds and four fouls in 19 minutes. … Love hit two 3-pointers in the first six minutes, giving him 900 for his career.

Knicks: Return home to play Denver on Monday night in their first back-to-back set of the season.

Cavaliers: Host Indiana on Wednesday night.

“They swung from where this, two years ago by the same collective bargaining agreement, in my mind, [Elliott] would be playing,” Jones said. “Now he goes to where he’s got the extreme penalty of six. Now there’s a bigger penalty. You can be suspended. But still, this is the max. … Anybody that has really looked at the facts of the case, has really looked at it, knows there was divisive and difference of opinion within the league itself.”

During a conference call Tuesday, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said that 100 experts in the field were consulted and that the policy was approved by all of the league’s ownership. “The process that we put in place in the aftermath of Ray Rice was put in very thoughtfully, very carefully,” Lockhart said.

Perhaps he simply needs more time to adjust to his new surroundings, and his price kind of reflects the slow start, but I’m still avoiding until further notice. Carmelo Anthony has done better statistically and costs less. — Eric Karabell

“For the teams five through seven, their head-to-head results were very important to the committee,” CFP committee chairman Kirby Hocutt said.

The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions are the highest-ranked teams from the Big Ten, and undefeated Wisconsin is ranked ninth in the CFP. The Badgers lack a signature win and have no CFP-ranked teams remaining on their schedule, but an undefeated run to the Big Ten title game and a showdown against potential East Division winner Ohio State or Penn State could vault Wisconsin into the top four.

LSU sits at No. 19 and is followed by a two-loss NC State team that rattled off six straight wins after losing its opener to South Carolina but got taken down by Notre Dame on Saturday.

The Wildcats and quarterback sensation Khalil Tate are ranked No. 22, ahead of Memphis, Michigan State and Washington State.

He’s clearly exceeded even the wildest expectations so far, averaging more than 25 points per game while making half his field goals and providing a Stephen Curry-like free throw percentage. Perhaps the scoring will adjust when center Myles Turner returns from a concussion, but that day isn’t today.

He gets a great matchup with the faster-paced Lakers tonight, who lead the league with over 19 turnovers per game. — Renee Miller

Russell against the Suns’ 25th ranked defense is the perfect recipe for a big night out of the third-year pro.
