    2h ago

    Winfield (concussion) logged a full practice Wednesday.

    Winfield was forced to miss the team's last two games while in concussion protocol. His full participation in practice indicates he's nearing a return, though it's unclear if he has already cleared the required medical checks. If Winfield is able to play in Week 7 against Chicago, he would provide a big boost to a Buccaneers' secondary that is riddled with injuries.

    Dodgers' Justin Turner: Exits with hamstring issue
    37m ago

    Turner was removed from Wednesday's Game 4 of the NLCS against Atlanta due to a left hamstring injury, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Turner suffered the injury during the bottom of the seventh inning when attempting to beat out a double play. The 36-year-old has struggled throughout the playoffs and went 1-for-3 with run before leaving Game 4. The Dodgers will need to make a decision whether to keep Turner on the NLCS roster or remove him, which would rule him out for the World Series should they advance.

    Reds' Nick Castellanos: Expected to opt out
    5h ago

    Castellanos is expected to decline his $16 million player option with the Reds for 2022 and become a free agent, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Picking up the option would also lock Castellanos with Cincinnati for 2023 at $16 million, and it's not much of a surprise he's set to test free agency after hitting .309/.362/.576 with 34 homers, 38 doubles, 100 RBI and 95 runs in 138 games during 2021. The Reds are apparently interested in bringing back the 29-year-old, but he should receive plenty of interest on the open market while coming off the most productive season of his career.

    Lee was added to Atlanta's NLCS roster Wednesday, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Lee made his big-league debut during the final weekend of the regular season, and he spent the rest of the year at Triple-A Gwinnett, where he posted a 1.54 ERA, 0.76 WHIP and 54:6 K:BB across 46.2 innings.

    Braves' Jesse Chavez: Starting Game 4
    6h ago

    Chavez will start Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Wednesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    Huascar Ynoa was poised to start Wednesday's bullpen game for Atlanta, but he was a late scratch with shoulder inflammation. Chavez will instead open things up in Game 4, and he has yet to allow an earned run across 3.1 innings this postseason. The 38-year-old is unlikely to pitch much more than an inning before giving way to the likes of Drew Smyly or A.J. Minter, who are more likely to cover multiple frames.

    Celtics' Jaylen Brown: Explodes for 46
    7m ago

    Brown boomed for 46 points (16-30 FG, 8-14 3Pt, 6-8 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block in 46 minutes Wednesday, but the Celtics' fell to the Knicks 138-134 in double overtime.

    Brown and Jayson Tatum each fired 30 shots in the shootout, and it was Brown who easily led the way in production. He showed no lingering signs of a recently-concluded battle with COVID-19. The 24-year-old was firing on all cylinders and should be locked into all lineups.

  • Jerami Grant DET SF
    Pistons' Jerami Grant: Solid showing in opener
    11m ago

    Grant ended Wednesday's season-opening loss to the Bulls with 24 points (8-20 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

    Grant was the lone bright spot in a very poor offensive performance by the Pistons. The 27-year-old averaged 22.3 points per game last season with the Pistons and it appears he will continue to keep up that production this year as the main offensive focus. When first-overall pick Cade Cunningham overcomes his injury and is able to make his debut in the next couple weeks, Grant could see a boost in efficiency with less defensive attention on him and a great playmaker to put him in more scoring opportunities.

    Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Heaves 30 shots in loss

    Tatum posted 20 points (7-30 FG, 2-15 3Pt, 4-5 3Pt) 11 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block during the Celtics' 138-134 double-overtime loss to the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Tatum had multiple chances at a game-winning shot but ultimately the Celtics fell short. He especially struggled from beyond the arc. Tatum labored through 45 minutes, perhaps a factor in his poor efficiency, and will have until Friday against Toronto to recuperate.

  • Lonzo Ball CHI PG
    Bulls' Lonzo Ball: Decent performance in season-opener
    21m ago

    Ball scored 12 points (5-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt) to go along with six rebounds, four assists and one block across 33 minutes of Wednesday's season-opening win over the Pistons.

    Ball shot somewhat efficiently but was less active than usual as a playmaker. After arriving in Chicago in the offseason, the 23-year-old could need some time to adjust to his new teammates playing styles and gain chemistry with them. Zach LaVine ended up handling the ball more on the offensive end, but we will have more of a glimpse into what Ball's role will be as the season gets into gear.

    Washington had five points (1-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a block Wednesday night across 19 minutes of action during the Hornets' 123-122 win over the Pacers.

    Washington salvaged a forgettable night by knocking down two free throws to take the lead, then clamping Domantas Sabonis on Indiana's final possession to secure the victory. Unfortunately, this doesn't carry much fantasy merit. Washington will look to rebound in Friday's outing with the Wizards.

The 26-year-old will be evaluated further Thursday, and for now should be considered questionable for Friday's matchup with the Bulls.
