    Cardinals' Juan Yepez: Not activated, still rehabbing
    1h ago

    Yepez (forearm) remains on the 10-day injured list and will continue his rehab assignment at Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Earlier Wednesday, Denton reported that Yepez had been activated from the IL and optioned to Memphis, but the Cardinals haven't yet made any transaction related to the rookie. Instead, Yepez, who has been on the shelf since mid-July with a Grade 2 forearm strain, will get more work in Memphis after his rehab program had been slowed over the past few days by an illness. According to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, Yepez is scheduled to play nine innings in the outfield for Memphis on Thursday and Friday, so any potential roster move likely wouldn't come until Saturday at the soonest.

    Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Rehab assignment on tap
    1h ago

    Lucchesi (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at Single-A St. Lucie on Sunday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Lucchesi has been recovering from Tommy John surgery since June of 2021, but he was recently cleared to face hitters and will now be able to begin a rehab assignment. The southpaw will presumably require a fairly lengthy rehab assignment, although it's possible that he'll be able to return slightly sooner than expected if the Mets choose to bring him back as a reliever.

    Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Suffers head injury Wednesday
    10m ago

    Wilkerson sustained a head injury during Wednesday's joint practice with the Panthers and may miss some time, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    While serving as a kick returner, Wilkerson was laid out by Carolina safety Kenny Robinson and remained down for a number of minutes before he was carted off the field, according to Zack Cox of NESN.com. Kyed didn't elaborate on the nature of Wilkerson's head injury, but the third-year wide receiver apparently feels "OK." The Patriots' next preseason game arrives this Friday versus the Panthers, so Wilkerson may only have one more chance to make inroads on a roster spot next Friday, Aug. 26 at Las Vegas.

    Patriots' Kristian Wilkerson: Carted off field Wednesday
    1h ago

    Wilkerson (undisclosed) was carted off the field during Wednesday's practice after absorbing a hit on a kickoff, NESN.com's Zack Cox reports.

    Per the report, Wilkerson, who was down on the field for several minutes before being carted to the locker room, was transported away for off-site medical evaluation. Wilkerson, who caught eight passes on 12 targets for 99 yards in the Patriots' preseason opener last Thursday, has been competing for a depth slot in a New England wide receiver corps that is headed by DeVante Parker, Kendrick Bourne, Jakobi Meyers and Nelson Agholor.

  • Terrel Bernard BUF LB
    Bills' Terrel Bernard: Roster status appears secure
    1h ago

    Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News surmises that Bernard is one of three Bills linebackers that has a lock on a roster spot.

    Bernard, a third-round rookie out of Baylor, actually has a chance of starting alongside stalwarts Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, though the Bills play a number of different packages and Bernard could be subbed out for an extra defensive back or a pass rusher on occasion. Still, the future appears bright for Bernard, who scored on a fumble recovery in his first game as a pro Saturday while adding three tackles in an all-around nice debut.

    Texans' Kenyon Green: Back at practice
    1h ago

    Green (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday after missing two weeks of practice with a concussion, Brooks Kubena of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    The concussion news is new, as the Texans kept the reason for Green's absence vague. He was in full pads Wednesday and ready to compete for a starting spot at guard on an offensive line that desperately needs improvement on the interior. He initially worked with the reserves, but then moved next to starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil during team drills.

  • LeBron James LAL SF
    Lakers' LeBron James: Agrees to extension with Lakers
    5h ago

    James agreed to a two-year, $97.1 million max contract extension with the Lakers on Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    James' extension will keep him in Los Angeles through at least the 2024-25 campaign with a massive pay increase, taking him through his age-39 campaign. He's coming off his best scoring campaign since his second year in the league, notching 30.3 points, 8.2 boards and 6.2 assists per game and hasn't shown many signs of slowing down at this point. He also finished the year with a career-best 2.9 three-point makes per contest, which bodes well for his fantasy value entering the 2022-23 season.

    Bulls' Carlik Jones: Snares camp deal with Bulls
    1d ago

    Jones inked a training camp contract with the Bulls on Tuesday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Jones spent most of last season in the G League, where he amassed 20.9 points, 6.8 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game over 43 contests between the regular season and the playoffs. He'll now compete for the Bulls' available two-way contract, which could turn into two depending on what the front office decides in the wake of Justin Lewis suffering a torn ACL over the weekend.

    Bulls' Justin Lewis: Suffers ACL injury
    1d ago

    Lewis suffered an ACL injury over the weekend and will undergo surgery in the coming weeks, which will sideline him indefinitely.

    Lewis inked a two-way contract with the Bulls after going undrafted this summer. The 6-foot-7 forward out of Marquette was expected to spend the majority of the season in the G League, so his absence shouldn't impact the NBA roster.

    Jalen Harris: Reinstated by NBA
    1d ago

    Harris was granted reinstatement by the NBA on Tuesday, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Harris was given a one-year ban following a positive test for a prohibited substance as of July 1 of 2021. He sat out last year as a result but is now eligible to rejoin the league ranks given that he's served that suspension. Toronto still holds Harris' rights and may look to sign him following his rookie campaign in 2019-20, when he amassed 7.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 13.2 minutes per game.

    Juhann Begarin: Returning to France for 2022-23
    2d ago

    Begarin will continue his development in the French LNB Pro A league this season, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.

    Begarin had a strong showing in the five Summer League games he appeared in, averaging 18.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 steals per contest. However, the 20-year-old has elected to remain in Paris for the upcoming season to continue to work on his game in France's top league before considering a move to the NBA. Begarin will likely revisit the possibility of moving to the NBA ahead of the 2023-24 season.

  • Jamal Murray DEN PG
    Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Aiming for preseason opener
    2d ago

    Murray (knee) said Monday that he's planning to make his return to game action during the Nuggets' first preseason contest Oct. 7, Roy Ward of The Age reports.

    Speaking at the opening of an NBA Store in Australia, Murray told local reporters that he continues to progress in his recovery and anticipates being on the floor when Denver kicks off its preseason schedule in Chicago against the Bulls. A torn ACL suffered in April of 2021 wiped out Murray's entire 2021-22 campaign, and it's been a long road back for the dynamic guard out of Kentucky. Initially, it appeared as though Murray may be able to return toward the end of last season, but he struggled to gain full confidence in the knee and ultimately did not rejoin the Nuggets before they were eliminated by the Warriors in Round 1 of the playoffs. Now roughly 16 months removed from the injury, Murray will still need to prove that he's back to his old self, so he'll likely come at a slight discount in early fantasy drafts.

    Rangers' Sammy Blais: Removed from injured reserve
    1d ago

    Blais (knee) was activated off injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Blais missed most of the 2021-22 campaign with his last appearance for the Rangers coming Nov. 14 versus the Devils, a stretch of 87 games including the postseason. With Blais seemingly ready for training camp, he should be in the mix for a spot on the third line though he could certainly earn a bigger role along the way.

  • Laurent Brossoit LV G
    Golden Knights' Laurent Brossoit: Progressing after surgery
    2d ago

    Brossoit (undisclosed) is "ahead of schedule" but likely won't be ready for Opening Night, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

    With Robin Lehner (hip) out for the 2022-23 season, Brossoit and Logan Thompson are expected to handle the goaltending duties for Vegas. Brossoit underwent surgery this offseason and, while the progress has been good, it sounds like he could begin the year on injured reserve. The 29-year-old posted a 2.90 GAA and an .895 save percentage through a career-high 24 appearances last season. An extended absence for Brossoit or a hot start by Thompson could shape how the team utilizes the tandem once both are available.

    Cates (undisclosed) signed a one-year, two-way deal with Philadelphia on Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Cates scored one goal in 11 appearances with the Flyers last season and added 10 points in 37 games with AHL Lehigh Valley. The 24-year-old forward should see a similar depth role during the 2022-23 campaign.

    Golden Knights' Nolan Patrick: Likely opening year on LTIR
    4d ago

    Patrick (upper body) is likely to begin the 2022-23 season on long-term injured reserve, Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now reports.

    Patrick sustained this latest upper-body injury in late March, and as of July, he'd made no substantial progress in his recovery. The 23-year-old center has dealt with traumatic head injuries for much of his professional career, and it's expected he'll be forced to miss at least the first month of the upcoming season -- and likely much more.

  • Jake Leschyshyn LV C
    Golden Knights' Jake Leschyshyn: Inks three-year deal
    4d ago

    Leschyshyn signed a three-year contract with the Golden Knights on Saturday.

    Leschyshyn established himself as an NHLer last season when injuries ravaged the Golden Knights' forward corps. While he managed just six points in 41 games in his age-22 season, he'll have a little job security with a three-year deal. The forward's contract is one-way in all three years, so it seems like he'll have a realistic chance to make the Opening Night roster this season, albeit in a bottom-six role.

  • Paul Cotter LV C
    Golden Knights' Paul Cotter: Receives three-year extension
    4d ago

    Cotter signed a three-year contract extension with the Golden Knights on Saturday.

    Cotter's deal is two-way in 2023-24 and one-way for the two seasons after that. As such, he shouldn't be expected to take on a regular role with the Golden Knights for another couple of years, though he'll be at the top of the list for call-ups when injuries stretch the team's forward depth. The 22-year-old had two goals and 17 hits in seven games last year.
