The Seattle Seahawks selected Odhiambo in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 97th overall.
Odhiambo is a talented lineman who likely would have gone earlier if not for durability troubles. He'll likely move to guard after playing left tackle at Boise State, and he could earn a starting role on a thin Seattle offensive line as a rookie.
Josh Richardson suffered a left shoulder injury near the end of Friday's Game 6 victory over the Hornets, although severity remains unknown, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Richardson still managed to spend 26 minutes on the court Friday before his exit. It seems that he's waiting to return to Miami before seeking out further medical evaluation, so his status for Game 7 on Sunday won't likely be made clear until Saturday. If he's forced to sit, Tyler Johnson will likely be in store for a bump in playing time even though he's yet to see the court in the postseason.
After stepping aside in favor of Antti Niemi in Games 4 and 5 against Minnesota, Lehtonen has responded with a pair of wins to bring him to 4-1-0 this postseason. Despite having 553 NHL games under his belt, the 32-year-old Finn has only gotten into 13 playoff contests, so he's still very much getting acclimated to postseason hockey. That said, Lehtonen will continue to get the nod in favor of Niemi as long as he's keeping the puck out of the net. Game 2 goes Sunday afternoon in Big D.
Michael Conforto was 2-for-5 with a pair of run scored and two RBI as the New York Mets trashed San Francisco on Friday night.
He was tabbed to platoon in leftfield when the season started, but he has changed that plan. Hitting primarily in the three-hole he has torched opposing pitching for a .343 average, and the two driven in against the Giants on Friday give him 15 on the year. His fantasy owners are enjoying the ride to be sure.
Steven Matz tossed six shutout innings, allowing seven hits, and walking three, while striking out four as the New York Mets decimated the Giants 13-1 Friday night.
After being shelled in his first start, Matz (3-1) has now held opponents to just a pair of runs over his last 19.1 innings. He needed 110 pitches (71 for strikes) to make it through six innings in this one, and the seven hits and three walks stand out, but with a huge lead, throwing strikes can make a pitcher somewhat more hittable. He'll try to keep things rolling with a favorable match-up against the Braves at home next time out.
