    • J.J Dielman DEN G
      Broncos' J.J. Dielman: Out with knee sprain
      14m ago

      Dielman did not practice Tuesday due to a knee sprain, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

      It's unclear how severe the sprain is for Dielman, but an injury like this can take multiple weeks to heal. Dielman is expected to play a depth role on the Broncos' offensive line this season.

    • Phillip Dorsett NE WR
      Patriots' Phillip Dorsett: Gets banged up
      24m ago

      Dorsett appeared to suffer an injury toward the end of Tuesday's practice, Kevin Duffy of reports.

      After leaving the field to be evaluated in the medical tent, Dorsett hung around on the sideline catching passes from a team staff member while waiting for the other players to finish practice. He didn't appear to be limping when he walked off the field with his teammates, but the timing of the injury -- however minor it might be -- puts Dorsett in some danger of missing Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles. He was a regular part of the first-team offense in last week's preseason opener, surprisingly getting the start over Chris Hogan.

      Broncos' Sam Jones: Battling back spasms
      28m ago

      Jones did not practice Tuesday due to back spasms, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

      Jones was selected by the Broncos in the sixth round of this year's draft and should be considered day-to-day while he nurses these back spasms.

    • Vontaze Burfict CIN OLB
      Bengals' Vontaze Burfict: Missing practice
      32m ago

      Burfict (ankle, suspension) isn't practicing Tuesday, Katherine Terrell of reports.

      Burfict limped off the field at the end of Monday's practice and was taken back to the locker room on a cart. He's already suspended for the first four weeks of the regular season, so only a severe injury would impact his prospects for the upcoming campaign. Jordan Evans is the favorite to fill in at weakside linebacker, offering ample IDP potential if he also locks down a role in the nickel defense.

    • Dwayne Allen NE TE
      Patriots' Dwayne Allen: Exits with injury
      43m ago

      Allen left Tuesday's practice with an unspecified injury, Jeff Howe of The Athletic Boston reports.

      Given the timing of Allen's injury along with the fact Rob Gronkowski hasn't played in the preseason for years, Jacob Hollister seems to be in line for regular work with the first-team offense during Thursday's exhibition against the Eagles. Allen only caught 10 passes last season, but he was useful to the Patriots as a blocker while logging 42 percent of offensive snaps. The Patriots probably would've brought in more competition during the offseason if they were ready to move on from Allen and his scheduled $5 million cap hit.

    • Duke Dawson NE CB
      Patriots' Duke Dawson: Limited at practice
      1h ago

      Dawson has been a limited participant in the last two practices due to an undisclosed injury, Andrew Callahan of reports.

      It's unclear exactly what Dawson is dealing with, but it's likely not too serious of an injury given that he has at least been on the practice field. Dawson was selected by the Patriots in the second round of the 2018 draft and is expected to play a limited role in New England's secondary this season.

    • Garrett Hampson COL 2B
      Rockies' Garrett Hampson: Summoned from minors
      2m ago

      Hampson was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

      Hampson will take the roster spot of Scott Oberg, who was placed on the paternity list in a corresponding roster move. Seeing as players typically spend between one and three days on the paternity list, Hampson's stay with the big club could be brief. The 23-year-old, who hit .300/.417/.450 during a seven-game stint with the Rockies earlier in the season, will serve as additional infield depth with Nolan Arenado nursing a shoulder injury.

      White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Sits against southpaw
      2m ago

      Delmonico is on the bench Tuesday against the southpaw Blaine Hardy and the Tigers.

      Delmonico has sat against the last seven lefties the White Sox have faced. He's not an obvious platoon candidate, having posting a .789 OPS against lefties and a .745 OPS against righties over the course of his career, though the sample size is quite small (just 72 plate appearances against lefties). Ryan LaMarre will start in his place in left field.

    • Scott Oberg COL RP
      Rockies' Scott Oberg: Placed on paternity leave
      7m ago

      Oberg was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

      Oberg will miss between one and three games while on the paternity list, so he'll be back with the Rockies for Friday's game against the Braves at the latest. Garrett Hampson was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque to take his place on the roster.

      Marlins' Miguel Rojas: Not in lineup Tuesday
      11m ago

      Rojas (ankle) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

      Rojas will retreat to the bench after exiting Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader with a bruised left ankle. JT Riddle will start at shortstop and hit sixth in his stead. Consider the shortstop day-to-day.

      Moncada is on the bench for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

      The last time Moncada was out of the lineup was exactly two months prior on June 14. Yolmer Sanchez will slide over to second base, with Matt Davidson starting at third.

      Mesoraco is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Orioles.

      Mesoraco will give way to Kevin Plawecki behind the dish after going 1-for-4 in Monday's loss to the Yankees. The backstop is hitting .220/.302/.381 across 74 games with the Reds and Mets this season.

      Grizzlies' Jevon Carter: Undergoes surgery Tuesday
      31m ago

      Carter underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb, Michael Wallace of the Grizzlies' official site reports.

      News broke last week that Carter suffered the "freak" injury when his thumb got caught in an opposing player's jersey. Following surgery, the medical staff re-iterated that a full recovery is expected. A timetable for his return has not been announced, but updates will be provided as he continues to reach milestones in his recovery.

      Bucks' Shabazz Muhammad: Agrees to deal with Milwaukee
      17h ago

      Muhammed agreed to a training-camp deal with the Bucks on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

      Muhammad ended last season with Milwaukee after beginning it with Minnesota, averaging 5.0 points in 9.7 minutes over 43 games. He will add some more wing depth for Milwaukee, but will likely continue to play a small role with the team if he's able to break camp with a roster spot in hand.

    • Briante Weber MEM PG
      Heat's Briante Weber: Inks contract with Heat
      21h ago

      Weber signed a partially guaranteed contract with the Heat on Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

      Weber has bounced around the league over the last three years, spending time on five different rosters. In his most recent 2017-18 campaign, Weber played in a combined 18 games between the Grizzlies and Rockets and averaged 2.8 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steal across 13.2 minutes. The fact that his new contract is only partially guaranteed means it's essentially a training camp deal, so Weber will have to have a strong showing during camp and the preseason to have a shot at a final roster spot with the Heat. As of now, the guard is likely on the outside looking in.

    • Dwyane Wade MIA SG
      Dwyane Wade: Won't play in China
      1d ago

      Wade has ruled out playing in China this season, Real GM reports. "If I play the game of basketball this year it will be in a Miami uniform," Wade said. "If I don't, I'll be living in Miami or somewhere else probably."

      Wade is apparently content to take his time in figuring out his next step, but he indicated that his agent is in talks with the Heat regarding a potential return next season. If that were to happen, the veteran would likely sign a one-year contract at a discounted rate. Wade, who turns 37 in January, is just two years removed from averaging 18.3 points per game for the Bulls, but his production tailed off considerably last season, which he split between Cleveland and Miami. Wade still managed 12.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 21 games for Miami, though he shot just 40.9 percent from the field and a ghastly 22.0 percent from three on 2.0 attempts per game.

    • Derrick Walton MIA PG
      Bulls' Derrick Walton: Joining Chicago on camp deal
      1d ago

      Walton is expected to join the Bulls on a training camp deal, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.

      Walton was on a two-way contract with the Heat last season, but was ultimately let go this summer after having his qualifying offer pulled. He'll now join the Bulls for training camp, though Walton will still likely be a long shot to make the final roster barring any surprises. In 27 G-League games with Miami's affiliate, the 23-year-old averaged 16.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 7.1 assists and 1.5 steals across 32.4 minutes.

    • Landry Shamet PHI PG
      76ers' Landry Shamet: Resumes light basketball activities
      1d ago

      Shamet (ankle) has resumed light basketball activities and another update on his status will be provided when appropriate.

      Shamet sprained his ankle during summer league play and has since been going through a heavy dose of rest and recovery. The fact that he's already back on the court, even in just a light capacity, indicates he should be able to return to full strength ahead of training camp. That said, the Sixers could bring him along slowly in order to avoid any unnecessary setbacks. Once cleared, Shamet is likely set for deep reserve duties in the backcourt and could struggle to find significant minutes as a rookie.

    • Ryan Ellis NSH D
      Predators' Ryan Ellis: Garners massive eight-year deal
      4h ago

      Ellis signed an eight-year, $50 million contract extension with the Predators on Tuesday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

      Ellis has been a consistent two-way presence for the Preds ever since he emerged as a full-timer in the 2013-14 campaign. The team's 11th overall selection from the 2009 draft accumulated 32 points (nine goals, 23 assists) over 44 regular-season games to complement an immaculate plus-26 rating last year. As the type of player who will do anything for his team, Ellis has also accrued 302 hits and 558 blocked shots over 396 career contests. Factor in how the Predators have been a playoff team in four straight years and you're looking at a legit No. 1 fantasy option from the blue line.

    • Steven Santini NJ D
      Devils' Steve Santini: Secures new deal
      6h ago

      Santini agreed to terms on a three-year, $4.25 million contract with New Jersey on Tuesday.

      The most significant aspect of Santini's deal is that it is one-way in nature, which means he can't be easily sent down to the minors. Having played less than 40 games in each of the previous two seasons, the blueliner is poised to set a career high for games played, which could propel him to new bests in goals or assists.

    • Kevin Rooney NJ C
      Devils' Kevin Rooney: Lands two-year deal
      1d ago

      Rooney inked a two-year contract with New Jersey on Monday.

      While Rooney's deal starts as a two-way this season, it transitions to a one-way for the 2019-20 campaign. If he were spend the entire length of the pact in the NHL, it would pay the center $1.4 million, although fantasy owners should probably expect him to spend some time in the minors this year.

      Penguins' Zach Aston-Reese: Fully healthy and ready for camp
      2d ago

      Aston-Reese (jaw) has made a full recovery and is good to go for training camp, Adam Kimelman of reports.

      Aston-Reese suffered both a concussion and a broken jaw during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference second-round series against the Capitals. He's since had multiple months off to rest and make a full recovery, and is now back on the ice participating in full drills. The 24-year-old participated in just 16 games during the 2017-18 campaign, but is hoping to have a strong training camp in order to earn a full-time role with the Penguins for the upcoming season.

    • Phillip Danault MON C
      Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Adds Pilates to offseason training plan
      3d ago

      Danault has introduced a Pilates training regimen in an ongoing effort to strengthen his core and preserve a healthy mind.

      It appears that the Quebec native is doing what he can to be the best version of himself in 2018-19. Danault broke out offensively in 2016-17 when he uncorked 13 goals, 27 assists and a plus-5 rating over a full season, but he dealt with a nasty concussion and related neck trouble in the most recent campaign, finishing with 15 fewer points over 52 contests. The Habs believe in him based on his three-year, $9.25 million contract renewal; he should glean plenty of confidence from that deal and all of the positives that come from taking better care of his body. A huge season could be on the horizon for Danault.

      Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg: Status quo regarding back issue
      3d ago

      Red Wings GM Ken Holland is unsure of Zetterberg's (back) health status, adding that more will be known in September, Ansar Khan of reports.

      The Original Six club is reportedly $1 million over the salary cap with Dylan Larkin re-signed for five years at $6.1 million annually. Placing Zetterberg on long-term injured reserve to start the season would be an obvious way to save cap space against the upper limit, but training camp won't start for another month and everyone vested in Detroit's plans for the upcoming season will want to hear more from Big Z himself before hitting the panic button. There very well could be validity in these rumors or it could end up being an overblown concern; time will tell.
