Jason Huntley PHI RB
Eagles' Jason Huntley: Inactive Sunday1h ago
Huntley is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.
With Miles Sanders back from his hand injury, Huntley is the odd man out Sunday, while Boston Scott, Jordan Howard and Kenneth Gainwell are also in the backfield mix for the Eagles' playoff opener.
Josh Sweat PHI DE
Eagles' Josh Sweat: Won't play Sunday1h ago
Sweat (illness) is inactive for Sunday' playoff game against the Buccaneers.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Sweat underwent an emergency procedure Tuesday to address a serious medical matter. Though the report notes that Sweat improved every day to the point that he came close to playing Sunday, he wasn't quite ready to suit up. In the pass rusher's absence, Ryan Kerrigan, Milton Williams and Tarron Jackson are candidates to see added snaps.
Kenjon Barner TB RB
Buccaneers' Kenjon Barner: Not suiting up Sunday1h ago
Barner (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.
Tampa Bay bumped Barner up from the practice squad after Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and Ronald Jones (ankle) were ruled out for the postseason opener, but the Buccaneers ultimately won't need the the 32-year-old to serve as a third option out of the backfield. Giovani Bernard (hip/knee), who was listed as questionable heading into the day, has been cleared to play for the first time since Week 14, and he'll serve as a change-of-pace option behind Ke'Shawn Vaughn and Le'Veon Bell.
Carlton Davis TB CB
Buccaneers' Carlton Davis: Cleared for postseason opener1h ago
Davis (back) is active for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.
Davis was added to the Buccaneers' injury report Friday after he was limited in practice due to the back issue, but he showed enough progress in his recovery for the training staff to clear him leading up to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Tampa Bay's top cornerback appeared in 10 games during the regular season, finishing with 39 tackles, 11 pass breakups and one interception.
Sean Murphy-Bunting TB CB
Buccaneers' Sean Murphy-Bunting: Not playing in playoff opener2h ago
Murphy-Bunting (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's wild-card game against the Eagles.
Though Murphy-Bunting was a limited practice participant throughout the week before being listed as questionable heading into the postseason opener, the cornerback wasn't cleared to play after his hamstring was still bothering him in pregame warmups, according to Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. On a positive note, fellow starting cornerback Carlton Davis (back) avoided the inactive list after being listed as questionable, so Tampa Bay shouldn't be too shorthanded in the secondary.
Alex Bregman HOU 3B
Astros' Alex Bregman: Cleared to resume hitting1d ago
Bregman (wrist) was cleared to resume hitting Friday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 reports.
Bregman underwent right wrist surgery in early November and appears to be on track in his recovery. The 27-year-old remains hopeful that he'll be ready for the start of spring training.
Ryder Jones SF 3B
White Sox's Ryder Jones: Signs with White Sox2d ago
Jones has signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.
Jones spent the entire 2021 campaign in the minors and slashed .288/.334/.500 with 11 home runs, 47 RBI and 34 runs across 75 appearances. He hasn't appeared in the majors since 2018.
Ryan Weber SEA RP
Yankees' Ryan Weber: Inks MiLB deal with Yankees2d ago
Weber agreed to a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.
Weber made four MLB appearances in 2021 between the Mariners, Red Sox and Brewers, and he'll now join the Yankees heading into 2022. He spent most of last season at the Triple-A level and posted a 4.18 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 102:13 K:BB across 103.1 innings.
Luis Gonzalez SF RF
Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Back in San Francisco3d ago
Gonzalez (shoulder) signed a minor-league deal with the Giants on Thursday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.
Gonzalez was claimed off waivers by the Giants in August, but he was non-tendered by the club three months later. He spent most of the 2021 season with Triple-A Charlotte as a member of the White Sox organization and posted a .241/.352/.423 line across 163 plate appearances prior to undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum. Entering his age-26 season, Gonzalez has only 13 major-league plate appearances and is likely to serve as organizational depth once healthy.
Corey Oswalt NYM RP
Giants' Corey Oswalt: Signs minor-league deal3d ago
Oswalt (knee) signed a minor-league deal with the Giants on Thursday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.
Oswalt threw a total of 27.1 innings as a member of the Mets in 2021, 10.1 of which came with the big-league club. He managed an impressive 10:2 K:BB, but his next challenge will be proving that he has overcome knee inflammation that ended his season in early July. While he was unable to return to the big-league mound, Oswalt was in the midst of a rehab assignment at the close of the campaign, meaning it is likely that he will be healthy for spring training.
Erik Gonzalez MIA 3B
Marlins' Erik Gonzalez: Signs with Miami3d ago
Gonzalez signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins in November, per the MLB transactions log.
Gonzalez spent the last three seasons with Pittsburgh, though he was outrighted to Triple-A Indianapolis in August. He elected free agency this offseason and will now look to earn a roster spot in Miami with a strong performance in spring training. Prior to being cast off the 40-man roster in Pittsburgh, Gonzalez posted a .232/.258/.300 line across 229 plate appearances in 2021.
Reggie Perry POR PF
Reggie Perry: Double-double in G League win2m ago
Perry posted 22 points (9-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal across 41 minutes in Saturday's 88-82 victory over the Lakeland Magic.
Perry led his team in points and rebounds against Lakeland on Saturday, and he's averaging a double-double (19.6 points and 10.5 rebounds per game) every time he hits the court for 905. He needs to cut down on his four turnovers in the game however, and he's averaging 2.7 per game.
Jaylen Brown BOS SG
Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Needs 19 shots to get 19 points2m ago
Brown provided 19 points (8-19 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and four steals over 36 minutes during Saturday's 114-112 victory over Chicago.
Brown wasn't the most efficient scorer Saturday and missed all five of his three-point shots, but he still delivered a solid stat line due to his versatility. The former California standout saw his streak of games with 20-plus points end at four contests, but he's still averaging 27.3 points per game across eight January appearances.
Robert Williams III BOS C
Celtics' Robert Williams: Posts double-double in win4m ago
Williams closed with 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-4 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists and two blocks over 35 minutes during Saturday's 114-112 win over Chicago.
Williams has improved massively as the season has progressed and he's now recorded three double-doubles over his last four contests, while also putting up 10 or more points in four of his last five games. He's averaging 9.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game in January.
Jayson Tatum BOS SF
Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Posts double-double in win5m ago
Tatum notched 23 points (8-24 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and two blocks over 40 minutes during Saturday's 114-112 victory over the Bulls.
Tatum has had quite a few problems in terms of efficiency this season and while that was the case again Saturday, as he needed 24 shots to end up with 23 points, he extended his streak of games with 20 or more points to four appearances.
Frank Jackson DET PG
Pistons' Frank Jackson: Downgraded to out5m ago
Jackson (COVID-19 protocols) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Suns, Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press reports.
According to Sankofa, Jackson has re-entered the protocols three days after he was believed to have been cleared. Sankofa relayed earlier Sunday that Jackson was in attendance for the Pistons' shootaround, so the 23-year-old seemingly isn't dealing with any symptoms, as he wouldn't be allowed at the team facility otherwise. Consider him day-to-day for the start of the Pistons' upcoming four-game week, which opens with a matchup Tuesday at Golden State.
Isaiah Roby OKC C
Thunder's Isaiah Roby: Back to G League11m ago
Roby was assigned to the G League's Oklahoma City Blue on Sunday, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
Roby has made 18 appearances for the Thunder this season and is averaging 6.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game. He's expected to get increased playing time during his stint in the G League.
Mike Hardman CHI LW
Blackhawks' Mike Hardman: Joins taxi squad7m ago
Hardman was elevated to the taxi squad from AHL Rockford on Sunday, per Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site.
Hardman has tallied three goals and three assists over seven appearances with AHL Rockford this season. The 22-year-old has averaged 9:31 of ice time and has recorded two assists over 19 NHL performances in 2021-22, his last appearance coming on Dec. 11.
Chris Driedger SEA G
Kraken's Chris Driedger: Skid continues against Kings7m ago
Driedger allowed two goals on 21 shots in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Kings. The third goal was an empty-netter.
Driedger was again decent in a losing effort, but he's failed to come away with a win in his last five appearances (0-4-0). The 27-year-old's season line is not very impressive either -- he's 3-6-0 with a 3.18 GAA and an .896 save percentage in 11 contests. With the Kraken mired in a long slump, Driedger and Philipp Grubauer are likely to split starts until one of them can earn a win, something the team hasn't done since Dec. 14.
Mikey Anderson LA D
Kings' Mikey Anderson: Garners assist in win10m ago
Anderson logged an assist and five hits in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Kraken.
Anderson helped out on the first of Phillip Danault's two goals, which stood as the game-winner. The 22-year-old Anderson has a goal and an assist in his last two games, but his uptick in offense is unlikely to last long. The Minnesota native has just three points in 37 outings, adding 73 hits, 42 blocked shots and a plus-11 rating in a mainly defensive role on the top pairing.
Viktor Arvidsson LA RW
Kings' Viktor Arvidsson: On modest three-game point streak13m ago
Arvidsson produced an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Kraken.
Arvidsson helped out on linemate Phillip Danault's empty-net goal in the third period. The 28-year-old Arvidsson has a goal and two assists in his last three games, and he's racked up eight points in six outings since Jan. 1. The winger is at nine tallies, 13 helpers, 111 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in 31 contests overall, putting him just three points back of his output from last season.
Ian Mitchell CHI D
Blackhawks' Ian Mitchell: Demoted to AHL21m ago
Mitchell was reassigned from the active roster to AHL Rockford on Sunday, Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Mitchell has averaged 11:55 of ice time and has tallied one assist over eight NHL appearances this season. The 22-year-old has recorded three goals and 10 assists over 21 appearances with AHL Rockford in 2021-22. He was reassigned from the active roster to accommodate the return of Jake McCabe from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.
Lukas Reichel CHI LW
Blackhawks' Lukas Reichel: Reassigned to AHL Rockford29m ago
Reichel was demoted from the active roster to AHL Rockford on Sunday, Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site reports.
Reichel has averaged 15:23 of ice time -- 1:08 during the power play -- and has been held without a point over his two NHL appearances. The 19-year-old has tallied 20 points over 20 appearances with AHL Rockford this season. He will certainly be in the mix for another call-up should the Blackhawks require additional depth at forward.
