Derwin James LAC FS
Chargers' Derwin James: Returns to full participation9m ago
James (toe) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
James was simply getting a maintenance day Wednesday after playing every single defensive snap in the Chargers' Week 1 win over Washington. The star safety should be all systems go in Week 2 against Dallas, where he'll have to be on his game to slow down Dak Prescott and the high-powered Cowboys passing attack.
Marshon Lattimore NO CB
Saints' Marshon Lattimore: Already practicing again26m ago
Lattimore (thumb) logged a limited practice Thursday, Amie Just of NOLA.com reports.
Lattimore didn't practice Wednesday but was able to return to the practice field Thursday, just two days after getting surgery to address a chipped bone in his thumb. He was deemed week-to-week after the surgery, so Lattimore's status for Sunday's game against the Panthers remains up in the air, though his return to practice Thursday is certainly a step in the right direction.
Eric Kendricks MIN MLB
Vikings' Eric Kendricks: Quad injury surfaces39m ago
Kendricks (quadriceps) didn't practice Thursday.
Kendricks wasn't on Wednesday's injury report, so he likely sustained this injury in practice. His availability, or lack thereof, for Friday's practice should deliver greater insight into Kendricks' potential availability Sunday in Arizona. The Vikings can ill afford to be without Kendricks against the high-powered Cardinals offense considering he racked up 15 tackles in Week 1.
Everson Griffen MIN DE
Vikings' Everson Griffen: Misses practice with concussion1h ago
Griffen (concussion) didn't practice Thursday.
Griffen wasn't on the injury report Wednesday, so he likely picked up the injury in practice. If he's placed in the league's concussion protocol, Griffen will need to clear it prior to Sunday's road tilt in Arizona to be eligible to suit up.
Matthew Ioannidis WAS DE
Football Team's Matthew Ioannidis: Back in against Giants1h ago
Ioannidis (knee) was able to return to Thursday's game against the Giants, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.
Ioannidis' absence was short-lived. He'll retake his spot on the interior of Washington's defensive line.
Jahmai Jones BAL 2B
Orioles' Jahmai Jones: Back to minors20m ago
Jones was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Thursday, Nathan Ruiz of The Baltimore Sun reports.
Jones has been absent from the starting lineup for three straight games, though he did score the game-winning run as a pinch-runner in Thursday's game. His demotion will should allow both Ramon Urias and Kelvin Gutierrez to see more regular playing time moving forward.
Nabil Crismatt SD RP
Padres' Nabil Crismatt: Earns win with four shutout frames26m ago
Crismatt (3-1) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out one across four scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Giants.
Crismatt followed Pierce Johnson into the game and served as a bulk reliever. Though he's spent much of the season shuttling between Triple-A El Paso and the big-league club, Crismatt has stayed in San Diego consistently since Aug. 12. In 11 appearances since, he's maintained a 0.98 ERA and 0.81 WHIP to go along with a 18:3 K:BB across 18.1 innings.
Fernando Tatis SD SS
Padres' Fernando Tatis: Launches 39th homer38m ago
Tatis went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks Thursday against the Giants.
Tatis took Kevin Gausman yard in the third inning to tally his 39th homer of the season. It was his third home run in his last 11 games, during which time Tatis also has 10 RBI and seven runs scored. This 2021 campaign was his first chance at a full-season in the major leagues, and despite missing significant time Tatis has a strong chance to post 40 home runs with both 100 RBI and runs scored.
Nelson Cruz TB DH
Rays' Nelson Cruz: Dealing with forearm contusion1h ago
Cruz exited Thursday's game against the Tigers with a right forearm contusion, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Cruz was hit in the arm by a pitch from Tyler Alexander, which is the presumed reason for his exit. In more positive news, X-rays performed after Cruz's exit came back negative. That should allow him to avoid a stint on the injured list, though he may sit out a game or two in the remainder of the Rays' weekend series against Detroit.
Austin Nola SD C
Padres' Austin Nola: Reaches base four times1h ago
Nola went 3-for-3 with a run scored and a walk Thursday against the Giants.
Nola logged his second consecutive multi-hit game and his third in nine September starts. That hasn't translated into tremendous counting stat production, though he does have four runs scored and two RBI in that span. For the season, Nola has maintained a .267/.341/.354 line with 13 runs scored and 28 RBI across 182 plate appearances.
Adam Frazier SD 2B
Padres' Adam Frazier: Collects three more hits2h ago
Frazier went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen base Thursday against the Giants.
Frazier now has seven hits across his last two games and extended his modest hitting streak to three games. He also notched his ninth stolen base of the season, matching his previous career-high that came in 2017. On the campaign, Frazier has maintained a .308/.372/.411 line with 40 RBI and 76 runs scored across 583 plate appearances.
Frank Ntilikina NY PG
Mavericks' Frank Ntilikina: Signs with Mavericks1h ago
Ntilikina has signed with the Mavericks, Dwain Price of the Mavericks' official site reports.
Ntilikina was a free agent for about a month after the Knicks renounced his rights in early August. The former 2017 first-round selection struggled to find playing time last season while dealing with COVID-19 issues and various injuries. The guard appeared in just 33 games averaging 2.7 points with New York in 2020-21. Ntilikina will presumably be buried on the Mavericks' depth chart behind Luka Doncic, Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke to begin the 2021-22 season.
Brodric Thomas CLE SG
Cavaliers' Brodric Thomas: Inks two-way deal with Cleveland1d ago
Thomas signed a two-way contract with the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
Thomas was on a two-way deal with the Cavaliers last season as well. He appeared in 14 G League contests and averaged 18.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.1 blocks. In 28 NBA games with the Cavs, he averaged 4.1 points and 1.8 rebounds in 13.4 minutes.
Jordan McLaughlin MIN PG
Timberwolves' Jordan McLaughlin: Stays in Minnesota1d ago
The Timberwolves re-signed McLaughlin on Wednesday.
McLaughlin was a restricted free agent this offseason and will stick with Minnesota for at least one more season. The 25-year-old averaged 5.0 points, 3.8 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 18.4 minutes per game last year. McLaughlin will compete with recently acquired Patrick Beverley for the backup role behind D'Angelo Russell.
Jarred Vanderbilt MIN PF
Timberwolves' Jarred Vanderbilt: Re-signs with Minnesota1d ago
The Timberwolves re-signed Vanderbilt on Wednesday.
Vanderbilt was a restricted free agent this offseason and will stick with the Timberwolves for at least one more season. The 22-year-old averaged 5.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steals across 17.8 minutes per game last season. He will likely garner a similar role during the 2021-22 campaign.
Marc Gasol MEM C
Marc Gasol: Waived by Memphis1d ago
Gasol was waived by the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
As expected, the Grizzlies took on Gasol's contract to ultimately waive him, and the veteran plans on signing a contract in the Spanish second division with the team that he owns, Girona. It's possible we've seen the last of Gasol in an NBA jersey, though a late-season return isn't out of the question for the 36-year-old. The center is the Grizzlies' all-time leader in win shares (77.4). While in Memphis, he made three All-Star games and averaged 15.2 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.4 blocks. He also won Defensive Player of the Year in 2012-13 and secured a ring in 2019 with the Raptors.
Aaron Gordon DEN PF
Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Agrees to multi-year extension2d ago
Gordon agreed to a four-year, $92 million contract extension with the Nuggets on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
After being acquired from the Magic in March, Gordon went on to average 10.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 27.1 minutes in 35 games for Denver. Though his numbers predictably took a hit with the move to a more talented Nuggets squad, Gordon made enough of an impression for Denver to keep in the fold on a long-term deal that includes a player option for the 2025-26 season. While retaining Gordon was clearly important to Denver, it raises questions about whether or not the Nuggets will be able to afford an extension of that size -- or bigger -- for Michael Porter next offseason.
Otto Koivula NYI LW
Islanders' Otto Koivula: Signs two-way deal with Islanders4h ago
Koivula signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Thursday, CapFriendly reports.
Koivula split time between Finland's Liiga and the AHL last season, tallying 11 points through 14 games with HIFK and nine points in 20 appearances with Bridgeport. The 23-year-old forward will likely spend the majority of the upcoming campaign in the minors.
Cole Bardreau NYI C
Islanders' Cole Bardreau: Signs two-year deal with Islanders4h ago
Bardreau signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Thursday, CapFriendly reports.
Bardreau spent the entirety of the 2020-21 season with AHL Bridgeport, picking up 10 goals and 16 points through 24 contests. The 28-year-old forward will almost certainly once again spend most of his time in the minors in 2021-22.
Paul LaDue WAS D
Islanders' Paul LaDue: Lands contract with Islanders4h ago
LaDue signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Islanders on Thursday, CapFriendly reports.
LaDue spent the entirety of the 2020-21 season in the minors, notching eight points through 18 games with AHL Hershey. The 29-year-old blueliner will likely spend most, if not all of the upcoming campaign with AHL Bridgeport.
Dmytro Timashov NYI LW
Islanders' Dmytro Timashov: Secures deal with Islanders4h ago
Timashov signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Islanders on Thursday, CapFriendly reports.
Timashov spent most of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors, picking up five goals and 11 points through 22 games with AHL Bridgeport, but he also made one appearance with the Isles, failing to record a point while posting a minus-2 rating. The 24-year-old winger will likely spend most of the upcoming season with Bridgeport.
Andy Andreoff PHI C
Islanders' Andy Andreoff: Signs with Islanders5h ago
Andreoff signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Islanders on Thursday, CapFriendly reports.
Andreoff split time between the NHL and the minors last season, going scoreless in six appearances with the Flyers and picking up two goals through three appearances with AHL Lehigh Valley. The 30-year-old forward will likely have a similar role with the Isles in 2021-22.
Kirill Kaprizov MIN LW
Wild's Kirill Kaprizov: Will miss start of camp9h ago
Kaprizov will not be available for the start of training camp due to his ongoing contract dispute, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Kaprizov remains unsigned ahead of the start of the 2021-22 campaign, which means he is still back in his native Russia until he pens a new contract. The prospect of the 24-year-old winger signing in the KHL remains a possibility. In 55 games last year, Kaprizov racked up 27 goals and 24 assists on his way to a Calder Trophy and should continue to rack up points if he returns for his sophomore campaign.
