    Bengals' Sam Hubbard: Bouncing back from ankle surgery
    42m ago

    Hubbard underwent an offseason procedure to address an ankle injury that he dealt with last season, Ben Baby of ESPN reports.

    Per the report, Hubbard -- who missed two regular-season games in 2023 due to a right ankle issue -- indicated that he had a complete deltoid reconstruction in his ankle as well as a TightRope procedure. Now that the defensive end has had his ankle repaired, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site relayed Monday that Hubbard says he's a few weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery and believes that he'll be ready for training camp.

    Levi Wallace: Slated to join Denver secondary
    2h ago

    Wallace is in line to sign with the Broncos, Jordan Schultz of BleacherReport.com reports.

    The looming addition of Wallace, who turns 29 in June, would bolster the Broncos' depth at cornerback ahead of this week's NFL draft. This past season with the Steelers, Wallace recorded 38 tackles and two picks in 16 regular-season games, and in his new locale the Alabama product could compete for a starting role opposite Patrick Surtain.

    Shaka Toney: Let go by Commanders
    2h ago

    The Commanders waived Toney on Monday, John Keim of ESPN reports.

    Toney was reinstated by the NFL this past Thursday after having served a suspension for violating the league's policy on gambling. The 2021 seventh-rounder, who last played during the 2022 season, when he recorded eight tackles in 16 regular-season games with Washington, will now look to catch on elsewhere as a depth defensive end.

    Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Likely to be suspended
    4h ago

    Rice is likely facing a multi-game suspension for his involvement in a car crash in late March, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Rice left the scene of a six-car accident on a Dallas highway and now faces charges for aggravated assault, collision involving serious bodily injury and collision involving injury. While he figures to be suspended at some point, the NFL typically allows legal processes to play out before doling out league punishment, which means it's possible Rice is on the field come Week 1.

    Bills' Greg Rousseau: Ready for next step?
    18h ago

    Rousseau completed the 2023 regular season with 42 tackles (including 5.0 sacks), four passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

    Rousseau saw a career-high snaps on defense (558), so perhaps it's a bit disappointing that he fell eight tackles short of his rookie season and 3.0 sacks short of the career-high 8.0 he posted in 2022. With the playoff perennial Bills facing so much turnover on both sides of the ball, the 2021 first-rounder may be expected to hit another gear if the team is to take a fifth straight AFC East title. A.J. Epenesa has already proven capable of helping Rousseau with the pass rush on the other side of the line, but everyone could gain if Von Miller, who's missed significant time the past two seasons, can consistently spark the pass rush.

  • Ed Oliver BUF DT
    Bills' Ed Oliver: Coming off best season
    1d ago

    Oliver finished the 2023 regular season with 51 tackle (including 9.5 sacks), three passes defensed and one interception in 16 games.

    All of those figures were a career high or tied for a career high for the 2019 first-rounder, while the 9.5 sacks were particularly noteworthy considering he is an interior lineman. Oliver and DaQuan Jones will continue to lead one of the stronger units on the team. The Bills did lose quite a bit of depth in the offseason and will probably draft a defensive lineman this weekend, but no one will enter the fray to meddle with Oliver's projected playing time, plus the Bills need a wide receiver (or two) more than any other position. If your league forces you to have a spot for both defensive ends and tackles, Oliver is one of the league's better IDP choices for the latter slot.

  • Ronny Henriquez MIN RP
    Twins' Ronny Henriquez: Gets call to majors
    37m ago

    The Twins selected Henriquez's contract from Triple-A St. Paul on Monday.

    Henriquez will provide the Twins with a fresh arm out of the bullpen capable of covering multiple innings as Minnesota kicks off a four-game series with the White Sox on Monday. The 23-year-old right-hander had posted a 4.05 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB across 13.1 innings with St. Paul this season prior to his call-up.

    Twins' Daniel Duarte: Moved to 60-day IL

    Minnesota transferred Duarte (elbow) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.

    The transaction clears a spot on the Twins' 40-man roster for right-hander Ronny Henriquez, whose contract was selected from Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move. Duarte is slated to undergo right elbow surgery in early May and will miss the rest of the season.

    Twins' Jair Camargo: Sent back to minors
    39m ago

    The Twins optioned Camargo to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday.

    Camargo operated as the Twins' third catcher for a bit, which enabled Ryan Jeffers to see more work as a designated hitter. However, with Max Kepler (knee) returning from the 10-day injured list Monday, Camargo was deemed an expendable piece and will now head back to Triple-A to play regularly.

  • Louie Varland MIN SP
    Twins' Louie Varland: Dispatched to Triple-A
    42m ago

    Minnesota optioned Varland to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday.

    The move comes one day after Varland turned in another ugly start in which he allowed four runs over just 2.2 innings in a 6-1 loss to the Tigers. Varland offered plenty of potential at the beginning of the season, but it hasn't manifested thus far, as he held a 9.18 ERA in four outings. Simeon Woods Richardson could be called up from Triple-A to take Varland's spot in the rotation later this week.

    Twins' Max Kepler: Back from injured list
    45m ago

    The Twins reinstated Kepler (knee) from the 10-day injured list Monday.

    Kepler missed a couple weeks of action with a right knee contusion but is ready to re-enter the Twins lineup following a successful three-game rehab stint with Triple-A St. Paul. He will likely take over as the Twins' everyday right fielder, with Trevor Larnach and/or Carlos Santana likely to see dips in playing time as a result.

  • Chris Devenski TB RP
    Rays' Chris Devenski: Roughed up in latest appearance
    45m ago

    Devenski surrendered five unearned runs on two hits and one walk while striking out two over one inning of relief in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Yankees.

    Though he lowered his season-long ERA to 7.36, Devenski was far from sharp Friday while he was dealt his first loss of the campaign. While entering the game in the bottom of the seventh inning with the Rays clinging to a 1-0 lead, Devenski struck out Gleyber Torres to begin the frame before Alex Verdugo reached first base on a Curtis Mead fielding error. Devenski proceeded to walk the next batter before another fielding error allowed the tying run to score. The right-hander then gave up a tie-breaking single followed by a three-run home run to Juan Soto that proved to be all the support the Yankees pitching staff would need on the night. The pair of errors certainly didn't help Devenski, but he's largely been ineffective as a multi-inning reliever for Tampa Bay this season and doesn't appear poised to garner many high-leverage opportunities at any point in the near future.

    Anderson (hip) was able to practice Monday, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports.

    It's unclear if Anderson had any limitations Monday, but Moore noted that he appeared to be doing better. Anderson left Saturday's Game 1 against the Suns early due to a hip pointer and was unable to return. More clarity is expected on his status for Tuesday's Game 2 when Minnesota releases their official injury report Monday evening.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander OKC SG
    Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Carries OKC to victory in Game 1
    4h ago

    Gilgeous-Alexander closed with 28 points (11-24 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), six rebounds and four assists across 39 minutes during Sunday's 94-92 victory over New Orleans in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Gilgeous-Alexander looked a bit off at times and wasn't as dominant as he's been in previous games, but the star floor general came through when the team needed him the most. An off-balance shot in the dying stages of the fourth quarter would be the game-winner for a Thunder team that had to work harder than expected to get past New Orleans. Gilgeous-Alexander was massive during the regular season and was named a finalist for the MVP Award on Sunday, so he's expected to continue leading the way for the Thunder in this series. Game 2 is scheduled for Wednesday at Paycom Center.

  • Jalen Williams OKC SF
    Thunder's Jalen Williams: Solid output in Game 1 victory
    4h ago

    Williams racked up 19 points (8-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 94-92 victory over the Pelicans in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Williams struggled from beyond the arc, but other than that, he delivered a solid performance as the Thunder barely escaped with the victory in Game 1. This was Williams' best scoring performance since March 31, when he scored 33 points in a win over the Knicks just before missing four contests with an ankle injury. He should remain a vital cog in the Thunder's offensive scheme for Game 2 on Wednesday.

  • Chet Holmgren OKC C
    Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Swats five shots in win Sunday
    4h ago

    Holmgren ended with 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, five blocks and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 94-92 victory over the Pelicans in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Holmgren had all sorts of problems with Jonas Valanciunas on the glass, and his shooting wasn't entirely efficient. However, the rookie didn't look outmatched in the first playoff appearance of his career, particularly on the defensive end with a few key blocks down the stretch, including one in the dying stages of the fourth quarter where the Pelicans were creeping on a comeback. Holmgren is not going to lead the Thunder in scoring since he plays alongside Jalen Williams and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but he's still an excellent two-way threat every time he steps on the court.

  • Jonas Valanciunas NO C
    Pelicans' Jonas Valanciunas: Pulls down 20 boards in loss Sunday
    4h ago

    Valanciunas registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 FT), 20 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Sunday's 94-92 loss to the Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Valanciunas was heavily criticized for his play during the loss to the Lakers in the first round of the Play-In Tournament, but he's responded extremely well with back-to-back double-doubles against the Kings and Thunder. The veteran big man feasted on the glass against Chet Holmgren and used his physicality to dominate. Expect him to play a prominent role in the paint in Game 2 on Wednesday, especially with Zion Williamson (hamstring) still sidelined.

  • Tyrese Maxey PHI PG
    76ers' Tyrese Maxey: Questionable for Monday
    4h ago

    Maxey is questionable for Monday's Game 2 against New York due to an illness, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Maxey has been on a tear recently, averaging 31.6 points, 4.6 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 42.2 minutes per game over his last five appearances. He played 44 minutes in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Knicks but was a late addition to Monday's injury report due to his illness. The 23-year-old didn't participate in the 76ers' morning shootaround and will likely be closely monitored in the hours leading up to tipoff, but Cameron Payne, Kyle Lowry and Buddy Hield could see increased run if Maxey is sidelined.

    Pietrangelo (illness) will play Monday in Game 1 against the Stars, according to Lia Assimakopoulos of The Dallas Morning News.

    Pietrangelo underwent an appendectomy during his seven-game absence at the end of the regular season. He finished the 2023-24 campaign with four goals, 33 points, 141 shots on net and 160 blocked shots in 64 appearances. Pietrangelo is projected to play on the top pairing alongside Noah Hanifin in Monday's contest.

    Maple Leafs' Bobby McMann: Still not skating

    McMann (lower body) was not on the ice ahead of Monday's Game 2 versus Boston, David Alter of The Hockey News reports.

    McMann is poised to miss his fourth consecutive contest due to his lower-body injury. Prior to his absence, the 27-year-old center was struggling to produce with just one point in his last eight appearances. Whenever McMann is cleared to play, he figures to take on a middle-six role, though he has occasionally linked up with Auston Matthews on the first line. Until the team provides an update, McMann should probably be considered out indefinitely.

    Stone (abdomen) will be in action against Dallas for Game 1 on Monday, Gary Lawless of the Golden Knights' official site reports.

    Stone will return to action following a 26-game stint on injured reserve due to a lacerated spleen. Prior to getting hurt, the 31-year-old was rolling offensively with 53 points in 56 games and could have been headed for the 70-point threshold for the second time in his NHL career. Stone is expected to join both the second line and the No. 1 power-play unit.

    Protas garnered an assist in a 4-1 loss to the Rangers in Sunday's Game 1.

    Protas was able to end a five-game point drought, during which he had 14 shots on net, five hits and two blocked shots. The 23-year-old has been slotting into a top-six role with Dylan Strome and Tom Wilson but could be in danger of dropping further down the lineup if he continues to struggle offensively.

    Thompson was the first goalie off the ice Monday, Danny Webster of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, indicating he'll be in goal on the road for Game 1 against the Stars.

    Thompson is coming off a solid regular season in which he set new personal bests in games played (46) and wins (25). The 27-year-old netminder's hold on the starting gig is tenuous at best considering he had been splitting time with Adin Hill to end the regular season, though Hill has struggled in recent games.
