Suns' Derrick Jones: Makes final round of Slam Dunk Contest5h ago
Jones made the final round of Saturday's Verizon Slam Dunk Contest, before falling to winner Glenn Robinson III.
The Phoenix Suns rookie showed some impressive hops during the contest, including an opening-round dunk in which he soared over four people before putting home a one-handed slam. Jones has seen very little action for the Suns this season, not surprising for a skinny 20-year-old who only left UNLV early after he was deemed academically ineligible by the NCAA, but he has the length and athleticism to eventually develop into a useful player.
Glenn Robinson III IND SG
Pacers' Glenn Robinson: Wins Slam Dunk Contest5h ago
Robinson defeated Derrick Jones, Eric Gordon and DeAndre Jordan in Saturday's Verizon Slam Dunk Contest.
With two-time defending champ Zach LaVine (knee) not participating, the field was wide open, and Robinson seized his opportunity with arguably the two most impressive dunks of the night, including a full two-handed pump reverse jam after leaping over three people to cap his final round victory over Jones. Robinson has been in and out of Indiana's starting lineup this season without much to show for it statistically, but Saturday's win could give him the confidence to lock down a starting role down the stretch.
Kemba Walker CHA PG
Hornets' Kemba Walker: Makes final round of Three-Point Contest5h ago
Kemba Walker made it to the final round of Saturday's JBL Three-Point Contest, losing to eventual winner Eric Gordon.
He came up short, however, as his final-round 17 was topped by Gordon and Kyrie Irving's 20, before Gordon claimed the title in an overtime round. Walker's enjoying a career year for the Charlotte Hornets , averaging 22.5 points and 2.7 three-pointers per game, but he'll need to get a little more help after the All-Star break from his teammates if Charlotte is going to pull themselves up into a playoff spot.
Kyrie Irving CLE PG
Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Comes up just short in Three-Point Contest5h ago
Kyrie Irving lost in the final round to Eric Gordon in Saturday's JBL Three-Point Contest.
He went down swinging, forcing Gordon to an overtime round when they each scored 20 in the finals, but Irving's 18 in overtime proved to be not quite enough. The 24-year-old is on pace for a career year with the Eastern Conference-leading Cavs, averaging 24.4 points and 2.4 threes per game, and his usage could even increase after the All-Star break due to Kevin Love's knee injury.
Eric Gordon HOU SG
Rockets' Eric Gordon: Wins Three-Point Contest6h ago
Eric Gordon won Saturday's JBL Three-Point Contest, needing an overtime round to defeat Kyrie Irving.
He and Irving each scored 20 in the final round, topping Kemba Walker's 17, to force the extra set of shots. Gordon finished with a flurry, draining 11 of his final 12 three-pointers, to claim the title. The Houston Rockets ' sharpshooter, who's averaging a career-high 3.5 threes per game this season, follows in the footsteps of long range specialists such as Jason Kapono, Jeff Hornacek and Steve Kerr in winning his first Three-Point Contest.
Gordon Hayward UTA SF
Jazz's Gordon Hayward: Bows out in finals of Skills Challenge6h ago
Gordon Hayward lost to Kristaps Porzingis in the final round of Saturday's Taco Bell Skills Challenge.
He took an impressive path to the finals, though, defeating John Wall and then Isaiah Thomas before falling to Porzingis. Hayward is having a career year for the Utah Jazz , and is on pace to average more than 20 points a game for the first time while leading Utah to the top of the Northwest Division.
Alexander Edler VAN D
Canucks' Alexander Edler: Strikes from center ice Saturday1h ago
Alexander Edler scored from center ice in Saturday's win over Calgary.
It was a long blast that dipped and fooled Brian Elliott, but it all counts the same. Edler had a productive fantasy night, also dishing out five hits and picking up two PIM. He only has three goals on the season, but Edler has been productive of late, racking up two goals and six points in his last seven games. He's not a great fantasy fantasy option in most leagues, but Edler is hot and plays on the power play, so he could be worth looking at in deeper formats while the Vancouver Canucks remain in the playoff picture.
Paul Stastny STL C
Blues' Paul Stastny: Could return Monday1h ago
Paul Stastny (lower body) has a chance at returning Monday against the Panthers, Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
The forward has a solid 35 points in 54 games, so his return would be a boon for fantasy owners and the St. Louis Blues alike. He's missed the last four games, but his 19:25 per game and 2:37 power play minutes mean if he's on the ice, regardless of time missed, he's got fantasy value.
Chris Tanev VAN D
Canucks' Chris Tanev: Joins rush to net overtime winner Saturday1h ago
Chris Tanev scored the overtime-winning goal Saturday against the Flames.
It was a great sequence from Tanev, who jumped into the play and sniped a shot past Brian Elliott. The 27-year-old, who logged 22:22 of ice time in the victory, has focused on defense this season, but his overtime winner proves he still has that offensive touch. His six points and lack of power-play production make him not worth your time in most fantasy leagues. Tanev is far more valuable to the Vancouver Canucks than he is to fantasy owners.
Brian Elliott CGY G
Flames' Brian Elliott: Victimized in loss to Vancouver1h ago
Brian Elliott gave up two goals on 19 shots in Saturday's overtime loss to the Canucks.
Elliott gave up an Alex Edler goal from center ice in the first period and couldn't stop Chris Tanev in overtime. The 31-year-old has been up-and-down of late for a Calgary team struggling to stay in the playoff picture. His .898 save percentage leaves lots to be desired, but Elliott has shown he can steal games and his 12-13-3 record is decent considering the awful start the Calgary Flames got off to.
Jordan Oesterle EDM D
Oilers' Jordan Oesterle: Sent down Sunday1h ago
Jordan Oesterle was reassigned to AHL Bakersfield on Sunday.
The blueliner doesn't have a point in two games in the NHL this year, so he isn't on most people's fantasy radars. If he makes his way back to the big league in the future, fantasy owners shouldn't rush to scoop him up.
Jean-Francois Berube NYI G
Islanders' Jean-Francois Berube: Starting Sunday1h ago
Jean-Francois Berube will start in net Sunday against the Devils, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Berube's last appearance came in relief of Thomas Greiss, but he delivered an impressive performance in his last start against Colorado. He allowed just one goal on 27 shots in the affair and will look to roll that momentum over into Sunday's matchup with the low-scoring Devils. The matchup should give him a decent shot at a second straight win in the crease, especially if New Jersey rests Cory Schneider in the second game of the team's back-to-back set.
Zack Wheeler NYM SP
Mets' Zack Wheeler: Successful bullpen session Sunday1h ago
Zack Wheeler threw a bullpen session on Sunday and experienced no issues, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
Wheeler experienced tenderness in his elbow after his bullpen session last week, so the fact that he felt fine after today's session is a definite step in the right direction. His status for Opening Day is still very much in question, but it does appear that the young righty is making progress.
Colin Rea SD SP
Padres' Colin Rea: Placed on 60-day DL1h ago
Colin Rea was placed on the 60-day disabled list on Sunday.
Rea underwent Tommy John surgery in November and will miss the entirety of the 2017 season. His move to the 60-day DL opened a roster spot for recent signee Jered Weaver.
Charlie Tilson CHW CF
White Sox's Charlie Tilson: To miss at least 10 days with foot injury1h ago
Charlie Tilson suffered a stress reaction in his right foot on Friday and will be shut down for at least 10 days, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.
It's an unfortunate spring training setback for the young outfielder who missed nearly the entire 2016 season with a torn hamstring. The Chicago White Sox have announced that the injury is described as a "reaction" and not a "fracture", which seems to be a good sign. He will be re-evaluated in 10 days.
Jorge De La Rosa
Diamondbacks' Jorge De La Rosa: Joins Diamondbacks on minor league deal1h ago
Jorge De La Rosa signed a minor league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.
De La Rosa made 24 starts and posted a 5.51 ERA over 134 innings with the Rockies last season. The 35-year-old has seen his numbers gradually decline over the past few seasons and he will likely serve as pitching depth for the Diamondbacks in 2017.
Raul Mondesi KC 2B
Royals' Raul Mondesi: In four-way battle for starting job1h ago
Raul Mondesi enters camp in a four-way battle for the second base job, The Associated Press reports.
While he is the least proven of the keystone hopefuls in Kansas City, Mondesi is easily the best defender and is most clearly a part of the team's long-term future, as he will likely slide over to shortstop when Alcides Escobar leaves after the 2017 season. If he were to beat out Christian Colon, Cheslor Cuthbert and Whit Merrifield for the starting job, Mondesi would likely post a batting average in the low .200s, but he stole nine bases (on 10 attempts) in 149 plate appearances last year, so he could be a big contributor in that category.
Jason Stoffel PIT RP
Pirates' Jason Stoffel: Bothered by shoulder discomfort2h ago
Jason Stoffel did not participate in Sunday's team workout due to right shoulder discomfort, Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Stoffel signed a minor league deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates this offseason which included an invitation to spring training. He's being listed as day-to-day with his shoulder discomfort, so the injury does not appear to be overly serious.
Cameron Wake MIA DE
Dolphins' Cameron Wake: Signs contract extension23h ago
Cameron Wake signed a contract extension with the Miami Dolphins that will run through the 2018 season.
The 35-year-old is showing no signs of slowing down, as he recorded 29 tackles to go along with 11.5 sacks through 16 games last season. He'll remain a staple of the Miami defense for at least the next two seasons.
Will Compton WAS LB
Redskins' Will Compton: Progressing well in recovery2d ago
Will Compton (knee - PCL) is progressing well from the knee injury he suffered in Week 14 against the Eagles. "I feel good about where I'll be come April," he said.
Compton missed just one game due to the sprained PCL and played through the injury in both of the Washington Redskins ' final two games. Offseason surgery wasn't necessary, however, so the Nebraska product has subscribed to a regimen of rest and rehab as a means for recovery. He has until mid-April to return to full strength.
Jordan Cameron MIA TE
Dolphins' Jordan Cameron: Likely done in Miami2d ago
The Miami Dolphins are moving on from Jordan Cameron (concussion) this offseason, the Miami Herald reports.
Cameron, an unrestricted free agent, appeared in just three games this past season due to concussion issues and is known to be considering retirement. When healthy, he averaged just 23.5 receiving yards per game the last two years and found the end zone only four times across 19 appearances. With Dion Sims set to hit the open market as well, MarQueis Gray currently sits atop the Dolphins tight end depth chart.
Julius Thomas JAC TE
Jaguars' Julius Thomas: Remains in Jaguars' plans for 20172d ago
Julius Thomas (back) remains in the Jacksonville Jaguars ' plans for 2017, WJXT Jacksonville reports.
Thomas was due $3 million if he was still on the roster at 4 PM ET, and the deadline came and went, signaling the Jaguars' commitment to the tight end for the upcoming season. They only would've saved $2 million by cutting him, so that doesn't seem to have been a legitimate possibility anyway. However, they can save $7 million by releasing him next season. Unless Thomas can put together a healthy and productive 2017 campaign, his days in Jacksonville may be numbered. The former All-Pro tight end has only played in 21 of 32 games as a member of the organization.
Ryan Seymour DAL G
Cowboys' Ryan Seymour: Re-signs with Cowboys2d ago
Ryan Seymour signed a contract with the Dallas Cowboys on Friday, 247Sports.com reports.
Seymour was on the Cowboys' practice squad for most of the 2016 season before getting the call-up to the active roster for Week 17. He was later released in order for the team to add extra depth at wide receiver for the playoffs. Now back in Dallas, he'll compete for a depth role in advance of the 2017 campaign.
Josh Wells JAC T
Jaguars' Josh Wells: Re-signs with Jaguars2d ago
Josh Wells re-signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday, John Oehser of the team's official site reports.
The terms of the contract weren't disclosed. Wells will look to secure the Jaguars' left tackle job this summer.
