Rams' Andrew Whitworth: Day to day with multiple injuries2h ago
Whitworth (ankle/knee) is day to day ahead of the Rams' divisional round matchup with the Buccaneers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
The left tackle suffered the injuries in the Rams' wild-card win over the Cardinals on Monday, leaving the game in the first half before returning. Whitworth's ability to play through the injury Monday bodes well for his chances to play Sunday in Tampa Bay, though his practice status the rest of the week is worth monitoring.
David Long LAR DB
Rams' David Long: Injury appears minor2h ago
Long (knee) appears to have suffered a minor injury Monday night, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
The cornerback left Monday's wild-card win over the Cardinals early with a knee injury, but the initial feedback on the issue is positive according to head coach Sean McVay. Long's status at practice this week will be worth monitoring ahead of the team's divisional-round game against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Rams' Ernest Jones: Chance to return this week2h ago
Jones (ankle) has a chance to return this week ahead of the Rams' divisional-round contest against the Buccaneers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

Elijah Mitchell SF RB
49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Limited practice on tap2h ago
Mitchell (knee) will practice in a limited capacity Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
As has been the norm for Mitchell since he sat out Weeks 14-16 due to knee irritation, he's again experiencing practice limitations, likely to keep him as fresh as possible with the 49ers in the midst of the playoffs. In three games in the meantime, he's served as the team's workhorse running back en route to 69 carries for 300 yards and one touchdown to go with three catches (on four targets) for no yards and another score. Thursday's injury report will reveal whether or not Mitchell goes into the weekend with a designation for Saturday's divisional-round contest at Green Bay.

Warner (ankle) is expected to be a limited participant at Tuesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that Warner will be limited at the 49ers' first practice of the week. His MRI results came back great and Warner feels confident he will be available for this weekend, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. The linebacker's ability to practice in any capacity is a positive sign for his chances to play in the team's divisional-round matchup with the Packers on Saturday, though his status the rest of the week will provide the clearer indication.

Astros' Alex Bregman: Cleared to resume hitting3d ago
Bregman (wrist) was cleared to resume hitting Friday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 reports.

Giants' Luis Gonzalez: Back in San Francisco5d ago
Gonzalez (shoulder) signed a minor-league deal with the Giants on Thursday, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

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 deal5d 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 Miami5d 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.

Malcolm Brogdon IND PG
Pacers' Malcolm Brogdon: Questionable Wednesday1h ago
Brogdon (Achilles) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Lakers.
Brogdon continues to deal with persistent Achilles soreness, and he's appeared in just two of the past 14 games. Even if he's available Wednesday, it seems likely that he'd be on a minutes limit.

Warriors' Otto Porter: Coming off bench Tuesday1h ago
Porter will come off the bench Tuesday against the Pistons, Kendra Andrews of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Porter has started the past two games with Draymond Green (calf) out, but coach Steve Kerr will give rookie Jonathan Kuminga a chance in the starting five Tuesday. Porter should still see increased run.

Kuminga is making his third career start, as coach Steve Kerr said he "really want[s] to see what [Kuminga] looks like in that starting group." In five games that the rookie has seen at least 20 minutes, he's averaged 19.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 27.2 minutes.

Sharks' James Reimer: Defeats Kings on Monday1m ago
Reimer allowed two goals on 41 shots in Monday's 6-2 win over the Kings.
Reimer was solid in his first start since returning from a lower-body injury. He didn't have to be excellent, as Timo Meier paced the Sharks with five goals in the contest. The 33-year-old Reimer is now 12-7-1 with a 2.65 GAA and a .918 save percentage in 21 games this season. He'll likely split the goaltending duties with Adin Hill going forward.
Timo Meier SJ RW

Meier scored five times in Monday's 6-2 win over the Kings.
Meier had easily the best game of his career, tormenting the Kings early in the contest. The 25-year-old winger has enjoyed an impressive season, but he'll probably never have a game better than Monday's in his career. For the season, the Swiss winger is at 20 tallies, 45 points, 146 shots on net and 71 hits in 35 contests.

Bruins' Tyler Lewington: On roster Tuesday25m ago
Lewington was recalled under emergency conditions Tuesday, per CapFriendly.
