Noah Spence TB DE
Buccaneers' Noah Spence: Limited in Wednesday's practice4h ago
Noah Spence (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
The second-year defensive end is continuing to play through his shoulder injury and could well be limited by the ailment for the entirety of the season. He's struggled to make much of an impact thus far, posting no more than two tackles in any contest and notching only one sack, which came in the opener. Given that he's been able to persevere through the first five games, it's likely that Spence suits up against the Bills in Week 7, but the week's remaining practice sessions will shed further light on that probability.
Chidobe Awuzie DAL CB
Cowboys' Chidobe Awuzie: Misses practice Wednesday4h ago
Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) did not take part in Wednesday's practice session.
Awuzie continues to battle a lingering hamstring issue that dates back to training camp, but a bye week should have given him some time to rest the ailment. His status for Week 7 against the 49ers remains unclear, but an official designation on Friday's injury report could provide could shed some light on the situation.
La'el Collins DAL T
Cowboys' La'el Collins: Full speed ahead4h ago
La'el Collins (ankle) practiced without limitations Wednesday and will be ready for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Collins benefited from the bye week in his recovery, and barring any setbacks, he won't have to miss a game due to this injury.
Jatavis Brown LAC ILB
Chargers' Jatavis Brown: Left off injury report4h ago
Jatavis Brown (ankle) wasn't on Wednesday's injury report, Jack Wang of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Brown has been nursing this injury for over two weeks now, but it looks as if he may be fully recovered. He's been limited in the Los Angeles Chargers ' past two games, and it is yet to be seen whether he'll have a full workload Sunday against the Broncos.
Troy Hill LAR CB
Rams' Troy Hill: Full practice participant5h ago
Troy Hill (shoulder) was a full practice participant Wednesday, and barring any setbacks, he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Cardinals.
Hill has avoided missing his second consecutive game, but he isn't expected to see many defensive snaps Sunday. The third-year corner has just one solo tackle in three games this season, but he notched 40 tackles (45 solo) in 2016.
Corey Seager LAD SS
Dodgers' Corey Seager: Expects to be ready for World Series2h ago
Manager Dave Roberts said he expects Corey Seager (back) to be ready for the World Series, should the Los Angeles Dodgers make it, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Seager's back has been steadily improving, and he was able to play catch with no issues Wednesday. The 23-year-old will continue to ramp up his activity -- he's scheduled to take swings Thursday -- but barring any setbacks, it sounds like the Dodgers will have their star shortstop back for the Fall Classic if they're able to close out the Cubs in the NLCS (Los Angeles leads the series 3-1).
Clayton Kershaw LAD SP
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Will start Game 52h ago
Clayton Kershaw will start Game 5 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Thursday, Tyler Kepner of The New York Times reports.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were unable close out the series -- losing 3-2 to the Cubs on Wednesday -- so Kershaw will get the ball for Game 5 on Thursday as he looks to send Los Angeles to its first World Series since 1988. He allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four batters in five innings during his Game 1 start against Chicago.
Jose Quintana CHC SP
Cubs' Jose Quintana: Set to start Game 52h ago
Jose Quintana will start Game 5 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Thursday, Tyler Kepner of The New York Times reports.
The Chicago Cubs were able to avoid the sweep with a 3-2 win Wednesday, forcing a Game 5 in Chicago that will feature Quintana opposite Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. In his first start of the NLCS -- which was cut short because he was used in relief two days prior -- the southpaw allowed two runs on two hits while striking out four batters and walking two. As long as he's effective, the Cubs will look for Quintana to pitch deeper into Thursday's must-win contest, seeing as he'll be working on regular rest and Wade Davis is unavailable due to a 44-pitch outing Wednesday.
Willson Contreras CHC C
Cubs' Willson Contreras: In lineup for Game 49h ago
Willson Contreras (forearm) is starting at catcher and batting fifth for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Contreras took a pitch off his forearm in the eighth inning of Game 3, but the injury was never expected to keep him out of the Chicago Cubs ' crucial Game 4 clash. He's 2-for-11 with six strikeouts in the NLCS, which the Dodgers lead 3-0.
Logan Forsythe LAD 2B
Dodgers' Logan Forsythe: Out of lineup for Game 49h ago
Logan Forsythe is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Wednesday, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Forsythe, who is hitting just .190/.315/.262 against same-handed pitching this season, will head to the bench for a second straight game with another righty (Jake Arrieta) toeing the rubber for the opposition. In his place, Chase Utley will start at the keystone and bat eighth.
Ben Zobrist CHC 2B
Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Not in lineup for Game 411h ago
Ben Zobrist is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
After Tuesday's 0-for-4 effort, Zobrist will return to the bench Wednesday night. Javier Baez is back in the lineup and starting at second base with Zobrist out.
Rudy Gobert UTA C
Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Double-doubles in win1h ago
Rudy Gobert recorded 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and assist and a blocked shot across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 106-96 win over the Nuggets.
As expected, Gobert reprised his starting role under center to begin the season and continued to prove why he's one of the elite big men in the league, despite running into some foul trouble early on in the matchup with Denver. He had to tangle with another premier center in Nikola Jokic most of the night but he came away with a much better night offensively, shooting 77.7 percent from the floor. With so many new faces, Gobert feels almost like a veteran in this revamped starting lineup - he's a reliable must'start in all formats at the 5 slot.
Devin Booker PHO G
Suns' Devin Booker: Ice cold from field Wednesday1h ago
Devin Booker recorded 12 points (6-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout loss to the Trail Blazers.
It's hard to be encouraged by much of anything from Wednesday's effort except that Booker racked up above-average defensive stats and took a high volume of shots. He's primarily a scorer, however, so when he struggles from the field, it's often tough for him to make up fantasy value. He'll look to improve during the team's next game Friday against the Lakers.
Eric Bledsoe PHO G
Suns' Eric Bledsoe: Poor during opener Wednesday2h ago
Eric Bledsoe recorded 15 points (5-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block but five turnovers during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout loss to the Trail Blazers.
Wednesday's performance was a game that Bledsoe, along with the rest of the team, will probably want to soon forget. There's hardly anything to be encouraged about, except that Bledsoe took 18 shots -- an improvement over his mark of 15.7 per game last year. He also put together a quality defensive effort.
Josh Jackson PHO F
Suns' Josh Jackson: Struggles in debut Wednesday2h ago
Josh Jackson finished with 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout loss to the Trail Blazers.
Though Jackson had his struggles during Wednesday's debut, it was far from a bad performance. Relative to the rest of the team, his statline is actually one of the more encouraging of the group. Ultimately, the Trail Blazers are a tough first opponent and Jackson will be in a prime position to bounce back Friday against the Lakers.
T.J. Warren PHO F
Suns' T.J. Warren: Shoots poorly Wednesday2h ago
T.J. Warren finished with eight points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one block across 28 minutes during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout loss to the Trail Blazers.
Warren struggled to fight off the impressive defense of Al-Farouq Aminu and Maurice Harless on Wednesday. Warren shot 49.5 percent last year, so his mark during the opener will probably end up being one of his worst of the year. He'll look to bounce back Friday against the Lakers.
Pat Connaughton POR G
Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: Scores career-high 24 points Wednesday2h ago
Pat Connaughton collected a career-high 24 points (9-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout win over the Suns.
With starting shooting guard C.J. McCollum (suspension) absent and the team turning Wednesday's game into a blowout early on, Connaughton was handed big minutes and responded in a big way. That said, he saw just 8.1 minutes per game last season and isn't projected to have a much bigger role this year considering the team's lack of roster turnover. Ultimately, Wednesday can probably be chalked up as an outlier.
Adrian Kempe LA RW
Kings' Adrian Kempe: Pots hat trick2h ago
Adrian Kempe lit the lamp three times on five shots, and added an assist, against the Canadiens in a 5-1 win Wednesday.
With one game, Kempe surpassed his career goal total heading into this outing. Kempe was a first-round pick, and he's a 21-year-old who only had 25 games under his belt heading into this season. That being said, he had zero points and five shots on goal total before this game, and he had been averaging 9:27 per game in ice time.
Michael Cammalleri LA LW
Kings' Michael Cammalleri: Tallies four points2h ago
Michael Cammalleri picked up two goals and two assists in a 5-1 win over the Canadiens on Wednesday. He also posting a plus-3 rating and had three shots on goal.
This is a huge game for the veteran, but it comes as a surprise. Cammalleri had zero points before this contest, and actually was scratched in Los Angeles' last two games. Clearly there is still a little spark left in the 35-year-old, but it's hard to view this as anything but a fluke given the circumstances.
Al Montoya MON G
Canadiens' Al Montoya: Lets in five in loss2h ago
Al Montoya gave up five goals on 42 shots in a 5-1 loss to the Kings on Wednesday.
This was Montoya's first start of the season, and at this rate he won't be getting many more. In his previous appearance this year, Montoya gave up two goals on nine shots.
Jonathan Quick LA G
Kings' Jonathan Quick: Stops 36 in win2h ago
Jonathan Quick made 36 saves on 37 shots in a 5-1 win over the Canadiens on Wednesday.
Montreal has struggled offensively thus far, but the fact remains that Quick now has four wins in five starts. In three of his five starts, Quick has let in one goal or fewer, making him one of the hottest goalies to start the season.
Jaden Schwartz STL LW
Blues' Jaden Schwartz: Scores hat trick in victory3h ago
Jaden Schwartz had three goals in a 5-2 win over Chicago on Wednesday.
Schwartz is already up to double digits in points with 11 following this outburst. He'd been more of an assist-focused scorer to date, but this might be a springboard to get him going on the goal side of the scoresheet too.
Vladimir Tarasenko STL RW
Blues' Vladimir Tarasenko: Adds another two points3h ago
Vladimir Tarasenko had a goal and an assist in a win over the Blackhawks on Wednesday.
Tarasenko is up to eight points now and looks like he's going to be in position to set a new career high in points. That would put him above 75, which would thrill the St. Louis Blues and his owners.
