JaVale McGee says he’s close to healthy, will be ready for season

JaVale McGee has battled a stress fracture and other leg injuries for a couple of seasons now — he has played just 28 games over two years. When he has gotten on the court, he has not been near the same athletic — and entertaining — player. Which leads to the biggest question about McGee with the Dallas Mavericks for this coming season: Will he be healthy enough to contribute...

Bryce Harper walks in all four of his plate appearances, scores four runs

Bryce Harper didn’t have an official at-bat tonight, but he still made a major impact in the Nationals’ 15-1 blowout victory over the Braves. Harper walked in all four of his plate appearances and scored four runs. One of the walks came with the bases loaded, so he was also credited with an RBI. This is actually the second time this season that Harper has walked four times and...

Rams say sign policy not a response to potential move

The Rams’ policy of banning fans from displaying signs that the team deems inappropriate is not aimed at those who protest a potential move to Los Angeles. That’s what a team official told Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The Rams say the policy was enacted late last season in response to fans waving signs related to the situation in Ferguson, Missouri.

Tim Tebow pulls away from Matt Barkley in Eagles' preseason finale

A terrific performance from Tim Tebow, a disappointing one from Matt Barkley and finally a clear winner in the Eagles’ third quarterback competition. Tebow outplayed Barkley Thursday night in the Eagles’ preseason finale, a 24-18 loss to the Jets at MetLife Stadium, and if the two quarterbacks were even going into this game, they’re not even anymore. Rosters must be at 53...

Mike Pettine says Dwayne Bowe isn’t in danger of getting cut

Speculation about wide receiver Dwayne Bowe’s future with the Browns revved up on Thursday when Solomon Wilcots, who calls the team’s preseason games on television, said that Bowe needed “to show up tonight to be a part of the 53-man roster.” Bowe then played into the third quarter against the Bears, which is usually a time when the field is filled with players angling for...

Pats weren't raising Super Bowl banner if Brady didn't play

The Patriots are set to open their title defense next Thursday. Along with that comes a big fanfest, some prime-time game action (which Roger Goodell won't be attending) and a banner that gets raised. But had Tom Brady not been cleared by Judge Richard Berman in the Deflategate lawsuit it wasn't happening, according to Jonathan Kraft on 98.5 the Sports Hub. "Well we may have been...

Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg: It was time for a coaching change; sometimes new voice needed

Much has changed since Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg addressed the media on May 1, the day players cleaned out their lockers following another early playoff exit. The Red Wings have a new coach, Jeff Blashill, and made a couple of significant acquisitions in defenseman Mike Green and center Brad Richards. And Zetterberg became a father. All of this excites Zetterberg...

Padres lose lead, come back, beat Dodgers

The Dodgers' youth threatened to jumpstart them to victory Thursday night at Petco Park. Rookie center fielder Joc Pederson sent a comebacker off Colin Rea's left pectoral muscle, perhaps contributing to an early entrance by the Padres bullpen, which promptly blew a two-run lead. Baseball's No. 1 prospect, Corey Seager, recorded a pair of hits in his major league debut. In the end...

Lorenzo Cain goes deep, Royals offense batters Tigers in 15-7 win

The baseball towered in the ink-black sky for seven seconds, a relative eternity in a seemingly endless game, long enough to deceive an outfielder, confuse a runner at first base and pause the man who powered the ball’s flight in the second inning of a 15-7 Royals victory. The defender, Tigers left fielder Tyler Collins, drifted toward Kauffman Stadium’s fence at a languid pace...

Nationals hammer Braves, 15-1; gain ground on idle Mets

For one night at least, there was no need for blame, no reason for second-guessing, no decisive swing or pitch to yield regret. For one night, there was no stress, no doubt, no frustration. For one night, things came easily for the Washington Nationals. The Nationals battered the Atlanta Braves, 15-1, on Thursday night, opening a seven-game homestand with a win, picking up a half...

Jeff Samardzija back in the win column after Sox' 6-4 win over Twins

Mired in a six-game losing streak, Jeff Samardzija tried to focus on each pitch, rather than dwell on past mistakes. The soon-to-be free agent helped the Chicago White Sox, and himself, by staying the course. Samardzija allowed an early grand slam to rookie Eddie Rosario on Thursday, but wound up with his first win since July 28 when pinch hitter J.B. Shuck’s two-run triple...

Peyton Manning not a fan of rookie Trevor Siemian's 'borderline mullet' haircut

Peyton Manning spared Trevor Siemian the embarrassment of having his head shaved by the Denver Broncos' "senior committee," but the rookie quarterback isn't in the clear just yet. "Ty (Sambrailo) had long hair when he got here and they cut our left tackles' hair. But, for three years in a row now I have spared the QBs," Manning told KOA's Dave Logan, via the team's official website...

Heat remain serious about chasing Kevin Durant in 2016

Last year, rumors started percolating that as the Heat tried to recover from the shock and hangover of LeBron James' departure back to Ohio, Miami President Pat Riley was already making plans for next summer and its top free agent, Kevin Durant. Then came Dwyane Wade's contract dispute, and a report that one of the reasons Miami needed Dwyane Wade to take less money or fewer years...

Scrivens not upset about Oilers bringing in Talbot

The easiest conclusion last season after a woeful season in Edmonton was to blame Ben Scrivens. He was the last line of defence more often than not, and the one left fishing the biscuit out of the Oilers’ net so often that he ended up with a save percentage of .890. Yecch. Scrivens had 53 starts and won a paltry 15 games, but trying to play goal behind Dallas Eakins’ failed...

Fans can leave a ticket at will call, but they have to pay a $50 "envelope fee" first. According to the...
