The results of the MRI Bryant underwent on his injured knee are expected to be released Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.
Bryant was able to return to Sunday's game after injuring his knee, but he was still sent for an MRI after the contest to determine the extent of his injury. It's not entirely clear when the test on Bryant's knee was performed, but the details of the exam should provide an update on his health heading into Week 4.
Davis underwent surgery in March to fix a stress reaction in his left kneecap and spent much of the offseason recovering from a torn labrum in his left shoulder. GM Dell Demps noted that Davis is not under any medical restrictions, but the goal is for him to open the regular season at "1,000 percent." As such, Davis will likely be held out of certain parts of practice -- he did not participate in Tuesday's scrimmage -- and could also be rested for some preseason contests. The former No. 1 overall pick is coming off of another stellar season, in which he averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game, but his young career has already been marred by a number of injuries, causing him to miss at least 14 games in each of his first four seasons.
Freeman went 2-for-3 with a walk, solo homer and three runs in Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.
Freeman hit his career-high 33rd homer and stretched his career-best hitting streak to 29 games, leading the Braves to a come-back victory to open their final homestand at Turner Field (they'll be moving nine miles north to SunTrust Park for 2017). The first baseman has been the rare bright spot on the league's worst team, hitting .307/.404/.576 with 88 RBI and 99 runs in 573 at-bats. Despite his team's overall performance, Freeman is sprinting to the finish line, hitting .415 with a ridiculous 1.249 OPS in September.
Shaw picked up two major penalties, a 10-minute misconduct and then a game misconduct in Tuesday night's preseason win over Washington.
Shaw's stat line from his first preseason game as a Canadien: 12:27 of ice time, one shot on goal, one hit and 30 minutes in penalties. The Habs acquired Shaw in the offseason to add some grit to the lineup and the former Blackhawk lived up to his reputation. He's slated to skate on the second line with Tomas Plekanec and Alexander Radulov when the season opens.
Shaw is scheduled for a hearing Thursday for his boarding penalty in Tuesday's matchup with Washington, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced.
Shaw's physicality got the best of him Tuesday as he picked up 30 PIM in a preseason contest. Regardless of whether or not he is suspended for the hit, this will put the center on the repeat offender list for the entire season, which could serve to lengthen any future bans.
