Ankle won’t keep Steph Curry, Klay Thompson from Augusta National tee time, sources say

After tweaking his right ankle in the first quarter Friday night, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry returned to action before leaving a 114-109 win against the Atlanta Hawks for good in the third quarter.

While contesting a layup hoisted by Hawks guard Dennis Schroder, Curry came down on the foot of teammate Zaza Pachulia.

“I came back in the second [quarter], felt pretty good,” Curry said after the game. “It got a little stiff at halftime. I didn’t think I would have to sit out coming into the third quarter, but sometimes the power of [team trainer] Chelsea [Lane] and coach [Steve] Kerr wins out, and we just want to be precautionary and safe.”

“Obviously landed on my foot, and it kind of stunned me for a second, but I was able to shake it off, keep it loose,” he said. “… Frustrating, but big picture. I understand.”

After the game, Curry was walking with no signs of a limp. The Warriors don’t play again until Tuesday at home against the Brooklyn Nets.

On Thursday, Curry made waves when he posted a photo of shattered glass in his hotel room with the caption: “When you feel like you’re on the @pgatour so you gotta get some swings going in the hotel room. #idiot.”

Curry, an avid golfer who played a Tour event last year on a sponsor’s invite, was asked after Friday’s game what happened. He told NBC Sports Bay Area that he was practicing his swing in his room — something he said he does all the time — when suddenly his phone alarm went off, startling him and causing him to lose grip of his 7 iron, which landed on a glass table.

Curry said he wasn’t wearing shoes when the table shattered, but he wasn’t cut.

Led by Miles, the Toronto bench — which came in Cheap Jerseys Website averaging 41.1 points — outscored Washington’s reserves 50-15.

“We take a lot of pride in coming off that bench and changing games,” Miles said. “We’ve been calling ourselves the best bench in the league all year and I don’t Cheap Jordan Jerseys For Sale think anybody can take that from us.”

Colts vs. Titans 2017 live updates: Scores, results, and highlights for ‘MNF’

The Titans got Marcus Mariota back, and despite a slow start, they a rhythm in the second half. Their 36-22 win broke an 11-game losing streak over the Colts. The Titans are now tied atop Cheap Custom NFL Jerseys the AFC South with the Texans and Jaguars. The Colts are in last place, at 2-4.

“Sometimes people, as you all know, tweet some ignorant things out at some moments, and that was an ignorant thing I tweeted out at that given moment. I take full responsibility. That’s why it went down [was deleted], but somebody caught me with a screen shot,” Matthews said via Kuharsky.

Green Bay knows what it’s getting with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, but Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys the big question is whether Davante Adams’ breakout will continue. The fourth-year wideout has developed into one of the NFC’s most explosive players since 2016, but that was with an all-world quarterback slinging him the ball.

Except that few people bought it. Thinking Jones (who donated $1 million to Trump’s campaign) suddenly wanted to join this protest in earnest would be like painting spots on a zebra and letting yourself believe doing so negated the stripes underneath. It would be like painting the white roses red and then convincing yourself they grew that way.

Oddsmakers expected both teams to finish the 2017 season under .500, and that’s still really possible. Los Angeles hasn’t been great on defense, got shut down offensively by the Seahawks last week, and picked up easy wins over the Colts and 49ers early in the year. And the Jaguars have been laughably inconsistent with a pair of terrible losses.

Predators’ Ryan Johansen treated for compartment syndrome

On Friday, the Devils took another step forward in its attempt to rise from the bottom of the league and return to championship form by selecting Nico Hischier with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 amateur draft.

Unlike recent drafts, there was uncertainty over who would be selected first overall due to injury concerns with fellow hyped prospect Nolan Patrick. The Devils instead drafted Hischier, who needs to fill out his 6-1, 178-pound frame before he can even think of dominating the Metropolitan Division alongside left-winger Taylor Hall in New Jersey.

Hischier is the highest-drafted Swiss player ever, going ahead of Nino Niederreiter (who went fifth in 2010 to the Islanders).

Although there are a number of good players available in this year’s draft, there is no hype surrounding players as there was for Sidney Crosby, Connor McDavid or most recently, Auston Matthews. The Devils are hoping Hischier can prove doubters wrong and be better then them all.

Predators center Ryan Johansen was suffering from acute compartment syndrome in his left thigh when he underwent emergency surgery Friday.

Let’s get this one out of the way first. These aren’t your dad’s Rangers, as evidenced by the long-prayed-for Dan Girardi buyout and offloading the next four years of $6.5 million man Derek Stepan onto the Coyotes’ payroll. Still, if only because they’re the Rangers, the idea remains that GM Jeff Gorton was clearing the deck to make a big-money push for the largest fish in the free-agent pond.

While adding Shattenkirk’s puck-moving prowess would help the Hockey Cheap Jerseys Rangers keep pace Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys with the Penguins, Capitals and Blue Jackets, Sportsnet insider Elliott Friedman noted New York is very determined to increase the roles and responsibilities of its young players and thus isn’t expected to factor into the Shattenkirk sweepstakes much, if at all.

The Islanders are a tough team to play against and have a lot of potential

Though led by perennial Norris Trophy contender Victor Hedman, the Lightning’s defense corps was a major weak spot last season and in need of an upgrade. Sergachev, the ninth overall selection in the 2016 NHL Draft, is considered to be a highly skilled two-way defenseman with an excellent offensive upside who is ready to jump into the NHL next season.

“He’s got good size, very strong, he’s physical, skates really well, has got an excellent shot,” Yzerman said of the 6-3, 215 pound teenager from Russia. “I think he has a chance to play in all situations in this league. It’s very difficult to find a player of that caliber. And a prospect of that caliber is Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys difficult to acquire.”

To get Sergachev it cost the Lightning the highly skilled Drouin, the Custom Cheap Jerseys third overall selection in the 2013 draft who scored 21 goals this past season and has recorded 95 points in his first 164 NHL games. With Montreal seeking scoring punch up front, Drouin, a Quebec native, is a perfect fit for the Canadiens.

“John is a generational player, sees the game at a remarkable level,” Eberle said of Tavares, the top overall pick in the 2009 draft who has totaled 235 goals and 537 points in 587 games. “I’m excited for the opportunity to play with him and, hopefully, bring success to the Islanders.”

Eberle told reporters that he knows several of his new teammates — including Tavares, Andrew Ladd, Travis Hamonic and Thomas Hickey — having trained with them in the past.

“The Islanders are a tough team to play against and have a lot of potential,” said Eberle. “I’m excited to be a part of that.”

Players hate the Warriors and other observations from NBA All-Star results

The NBA announced the starting lineups and voting results for the 2017 All-Star game, and there were a few interesting items to take away from it.

The obvious, and most discussed topic, is how Russell Westbrook didn’t make the starting lineup despite averaging a triple-double. But if you dig deeper, there are a few more questionable, funny and odd occurrences from the voting results.

Before we dive into this, it’s important to note the new voting process the league introduced this year. Instead of fan voting accounting for 100 percent of the votes, it only accounts for half. The other 50 percent is divided into 25 percent each for media voting and player voting.

With Pau Gasol and Tony Parker injured, and LaMarcus Aldridge struggling to find consistency, this Spurs team would really be in trouble if not for Leonard.

Rookie Dejounte Murray also stepped up for San Antonio. The 6-5 point guard started in place of Parker and scored 14 points with six assists. His youth and athleticism can really help this team moving forward.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving led the Cavs with 29 points apiece. Kevin Love (13 points, 11 rebounds) and Tristan Thompson (14 points, 12 rebounds) added double-doubles.

Heat trio of Dion Waiters, Hassan Whiteside and Goran Dragic: Waiters led Nike NFL Jerseys Size Chart the way with 33 points to help the Heat defeat the Bucks, 109-97. Dragic added 25 points and six assists, while Whitseide chipped in with 16 points and 15 rebounds. Miami now has its first three-game NBA Cheap Jerseys winning streak of the season.

‘Play hard, play physical’: Zaza Pachulia isn’t changing his game for anyone

When you look back at the Warriors’ offseason, one big name pops up immediately: Zaza Pachulia.

Well, maybe it’s Kevin Durant considering he’s a former MVP playing the most efficient basketball of his career. But Pachulia has been a huge bargain after signing a one-year, $2.9 million deal last summer.

Lopez is averaging 20.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.6 blocks per game. He’s also added a 3-point shot to his offensive game this season, shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc on 5.3 attempts per game.

Teams might be scared away from Lopez since he has one year and $22.6 million left on his contract after this season. That’s a big payout, and Eagle says the Nets could be looking for a lottery pick and another first-round pick in return.

The Nets are in the driver’s seat. It appears they’ll be content to keep Lopez if they don’t like any of the offers in front of them.

He added, “He’s a tough out. He’s a big leaguer and there’s a reason he had so much success, regardless of what’s gone on lately.”

Sandoval will more than likely be a big leaguer again soon. Around the time he smacked that double, the Giants traded their starting third baseman and 2016 All-Star Eduardo Nunez to the Red Sox. With stud prospect Christian Arroyo on the disabled list with a broken hand, San Francisco could now opt to give another prospect a look and stick with Bruce Bochy’s plan to allow Sandoval 50 at-bats with Sacramento. Or, the Giants could call up their former star sooner.

Sandoval made reporters chuckle after the game when he got news of Plain Cheap Jerseys Nunez’s trade, initially uttering a Spanish expletive before adding that he didn’t worry and that “I just Vip Cheap Jerseys want to get better and better every day.”

Jerry Jones does not see ‘one thing’ related to domestic violence with Ezekiel Elliott

As the NFL wraps up its investigation into a domestic violence allegation against Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys running back reported for training camp with the rest of his team.

How does the reigning Super Bowl champion get even better? By trading draft picks to add immediate-impact veterans like wide receiver Brandin Cooks, defensive end Kony Ealy and tight end Duane Allen. The Patriots also added cornerback Stephon Gilmore in free agency and re-signed standout linebacker Dont’a Hightower.

Oh yeah — Tom Brady is back, as well, to make New England the clear NFL favorite to win a third Lombardi Trophy in a four-year span.

The “Suck for Sam (Darnold)” push is in full swing. The roster was Cheap Mls Jerseys so gutted this offseason that New York is considered the favorite to finish with the NFL’s worst record.

That would put the Jets in position to land the star Southern Cal quarterback with the top pick in next year’s draft.

There’s no Adrian Peterson, but there are Latavius Murray and Dalvin Cook, signs of a plus for the in-limbo Vikings. Sam Bradford gets a full offseason and training camp, as does Pat Shurmur, no longer Cheap MLB Jerseys the interim offensive coordinator.

Jim Caldwell’s job in Detroit is perpetually in danger for some reason, and Bob Quinn is still early in his general manager tenure. Yet in some corners, Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson, respectively, catch Cheap Michael Jordan Jerseys more heat than both.

Ideally, this should be a tight race all the way. Stafford’s ascent should finally take place.

Jeff Van Gundy is absolutely correct when it comes to the NBA All-Star Game

Jeff Van Gundy is a straight shooter, and he kept it real again on Saturday night. This time, he had his sights set on the All-Star game.

When broadcaster Mike Breen asked Van Gundy during the Cavaliers-Bulls matchup if he liked this year’s All-Star game, Van Gundy delivered a classic response.

Free agents move all over the place in today’s NBA, and yet the team with one of the seemingly most attractive places to move to has not seen any players of note move to it. In a market with players like James, Durant, Bosh, Hayward and Barnes, the Los Angeles Lakers have landed Timofey Mozgov and Luol Deng. Not exactly players that move the needle.

But all of that may be about to change, according to Lakers president Magic Johnson, because of Lonzo Ball.

“Of course free agents are excited,” he said. “He makes the game easier for you. How many layups did [Kyle] Kuzma average per game [at Summer League]? Three? Or dunks or layups a game? At least three. All you have to do is get out on the wing and it’s there. Again, that’s Cheap Lacrosse Jerseys what you want. You want a guy who can make the game easy for you — a pass-first guy.”

Ball was named the Las Vegas Summer League MVP after averaging 16.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. But more important he averaged a Vegas Summer League-record 9.3 assists per game.

He averaged 7.6 assists per game as a freshman at UCLA as part of one of the historically great offenses in NCAA history. Magic thinks that’s appealing to free agents.

We’ll see how appealing it is in the next few years. We’ll Cheap Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys see how appealing it will be to a guy like Paul George.

DeMarcus Cousins opens up about the Kings’ ‘coward move’ to trade him

DeMarcus Cousins was sent to the Pelicans just minutes after the NBA All-Star game ended, and he didn’t like how it went down.

The former Kings star had heard rumors about his availability in a trade for years, so he didn’t think much of the rumors before the All-Star game. But once the game ended, and the team’s public relations person told him about everything, reality began to sink in.

This season, the NBA used its Twitter account, followed by an estimated 23.4 million users, to showcase the footwear each player selected to the game would be sporting prior to tipoff. Utilizing the hashtag #NBAKICKS, the whole promotion (sponsored by Footlocker) which featured a shorter-than-Vine video, came across kind of cheesy. Here’s Marc Gasol’s for example.

It’s not the first time the classic intro has been put to use in the world of sports.

Kentucky football managers once produced a similar intro video, as did the San Francisco Giants. A Pirates fan brought back another memory from ABC’s old TGIF lineup, with an homage to the hit show “Family Matters.”

But there’s nothing quite like the original. Pacers supporting cast: Paul George dropped 37 points with five rebounds on the Celtics, and point guard Jeff Teague helped out with 25 points and six assists, but the Pacers still lost to Boston 109-100 on the road. No one else on Indiana’s team had over eight points.

Raptors (42-29) at Heat (35-36), 7:30 p.m. ET — Miami is Wholesale Jerseys Cheap desperately trying to earn a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and it is playing like it Orioles Cheap Jerseys deserves one. Toronto continues to hang around despite all the injury issues and roster changes. If this team can get Kyle Lowry back and healthy soon it could still be a threat in the postseason.

Michael Bennett offers great answer for why he skips OTAs

Michael Bennett doesn’t attend the Seahawks’ voluntary offseason workouts, and it’s not because he doesn’t love football (he does) or because he doesn’t care about staying in shape.

It’s because he and his wife, Pele, have three daughters under the age of 9, and his life outside football is very important to him.

I like to be a parent, Bennett told Gregg Bell of the I’ve got daughters. I’m a coach. I’m a teacher at the school. I do things in the community. I try to balance my football life with my actual reality. So, to find that great balance as a human being. I think it’s important as athletes to find that.

The two-time Pro Bowl defensive end suggests other players should strive for more balance between football and their life beyond the field.

Sorry, KD isn’t going anywhere. Durant will decline his option and re-sign with Golden State to give the Warriors more financial flexibility moving forward. He just won his first championship and took home the NBA Finals MVP award. He’s right in the middle of his prime, and he’s a problem for the rest of the league.

Golden State will re-sign the top two free agents on the market. Yeah, that’s just unfair. The two-time NBA MVP averaged 25.3 points per game on 46.8/41.1/89.8 shooting splits in a down year. Pretty good.

That four-year, $44 million contract he signed in 2012 is gone, and the Warriors won’t be getting a bargain deal this time. This is a no-brainer for both sides, though.
