      11h ago

      Conklin is listed as questionable for Sunday's showdown against the Chiefs due to a shoulder injury, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

      Conklin was not on the injury report Wednesday, but subsequently practiced in limited fashion the rest of the week. Dennis Kelly would be in line to replace him at right tackle should he ultimately be unable to go.

      Titans' David Long: Deemed questionable
      11h ago

      Long is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs due to a knee injury, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.

      Long fully participated in Thursday's practice, but that was logged in between two limited workloads on Wednesday and Friday. His status for Sunday will likely depend on how his knee is feeling during warmups.

      Titans' Rashaan Evans: Questionable to face Chiefs
      15h ago

      Evans (foot) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game in Kansas City, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com repots.

      Evans logged three straight limited practices this week. If cleared to suit up this weekend, he'll draw his usual start at inside linebacker.

      Packers' Preston Smith: Sheds injury designation
      16h ago

      Smith (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in San Francisco, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

      Smith practiced in a limited capacity all week, but it was enough to avoid a designation following him into the weekend, when he'll look to make an impact via his pass-rushing prowess.

      16h ago

      Clark (back) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in San Francisco, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

      Clark was a full participant in Friday's practice. The standout run-stopper's presence will provide a notable boost for Green Bay's defensive front against the 49ers.

      49ers' Dee Ford: Clear of injury designation
      16h ago

      Ford (quadriceps/hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's NFC Championship Game against Green Bay.

      Ford began the week not practicing due to the quadriceps and hamstring injuries, but he was able to progress to full participation Friday and avoid the questionable tag. The 28-year-old had a sack last week against the Vikings in his first game action since Week 14 and should serve in his usual role as a pass-rush specialist this weekend.

      Rangers' Elvis Andrus: Shedding weight
      42m ago

      Andrus showed up at a team event Friday about 10 pounds lighter than when the 2019 season ended, Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News reports.

      Andrus, who is entering his 12th year in the Rangers' organization, said he plans to shed at least another five pounds before training camp opens. He's coming off an unproductive season with a .706 OPS in 147 games. Texas general manager Jon Daniels made both Andrus and second baseman Rougned Odor aware of the team's displeasure with their results last year, per Kevin Sherrington of the Dallas Morning News. "We've been real clear with both guys," Daniels said. "Their position with the club is different from what it's been." The message to Andrus was to show up in better shape and be committed to the long grind of the baseball season. While there is not a ready option to take over at shortstop, Rangers manager Chris Woodward could drop Andrus in the batting order.

    • Marwin Gonzalez MIN RF
      Twins' Marwin Gonzalez: Working back from knee procedure
      12h ago

      Gonzalez is taking part in daily rehab sessions after undergoing a minor procedure on his right knee in October, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

      He's going to miss Minnesota's annual TwinsFest next weekend as a result, but it doesn't sound like an injury that will be a significant issue when spring training begins. Still, monitor his progress. Gonzalez is set to return to a utility role after the Twins signed Josh Donaldson with Miguel Sano moving to first base. The Twins will still likely give him regular duty at different positions to give other players rest, as they did last year. He'll also get regular playing time when a starter is injured.

      Twins' Byron Buxton: Set to swing bat
      12h ago

      Buxton (shoulder) has been given medical clearance to swing a bat and the Twins expect him to progress to hitting off a machine later this month, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

      If all goes well, he could be ready to hit off live pitching at the start of spring training. Buxton underwent season-ending surgery Sept. 10 to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. If healthy, he should be Minnesota's starting center fielder in 2020.

      Moran was released by the Marlins on Friday, Anderson Pickard of MLB Daily Dish reports.

      Moran was cast off the 40-man roster Wednesday, and he'll now head for the open market after the Marlins requested unconditional release waivers on the southpaw.

      Reds' Jesse Biddle: Reaches MiLB deal with Reds
      13h ago

      Biddle signed a minor-league contract with Cincinnati on Friday, which includes an invitation to spring training, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

      Biddle spent time in Atlanta, Seattle and Texas last season, struggling to an 8.36 ERA and 2.29 WHIP with a 26:22 K:BB over 28 innings out of the bullpen. Despite his struggles, he'll have a chance to earn a spot in the Reds' bullpen during spring training.

      Red Sox's Travis Lakins: DFA'd by Boston
      14h ago

      Lakins was designated for assignment by the Red Sox on Friday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

      Lakins turned in a solid 2019 season, finishing with a 3.86 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with an 18:10 K:BB over 23.1 frames in his first taste of big-league action. Matt Hall will take Lakins' place on the 40-man roster.

    • Seth Curry DAL SG
      Mavericks' Seth Curry: Scores 16 points despite struggles
      18m ago

      Curry had 16 points (6-14 FG, 3-10 3PT, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench during Friday's 120-112 win over the Trail Blazers.

      Curry has now scored in double digits in back-to-back games and four times over his last six contests, but he is shooting just 40.0 percent from deep during that six-game span. He is making threes at a career-worst 39.0 percent clip this season and considering he regularly comes off the bench, he needs to start shooting better if he does not want to lose his role in the team's rotation.

    • Tim Hardaway Jr. DAL SG
      Mavericks' Tim Hardaway Jr.: Scores 29 points
      20m ago

      Hardaway Jr. had 29 points (9-16 FG, 5-8 3PT, 6-7 FT), four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes during Friday's 120-112 win over the Trail Blazers.

      Hardaway Jr. has been on fire since returning from a three-game absence in late December and early January, making 48.9 percent of his field goals and 42.9 percent of his three-point attempts. A higher efficiency will likely represent a boost to his upside, since most of Hardaway's value comes from his scoring totals. For what is worth, he is shooting a career-best 39.1 percent from deep this season.

    • Luka Doncic DAL SF
      Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Fills stat sheet in win
      23m ago

      Doncic had 35 points (11-23 FG, 8-12 3PT, 5-8 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 120-112 win over the Trail Blazers.

      Doncic sniffed a triple-double while scoring 35 or more points for the fourth time this month, but that has been the standard of performances for the Slovenian during his second year in The Association. He is averaging 28.8 points, 10.4 rebounds and 9.1 assists per game in nine starts during January, and his recent performances have done nothing but solidify their 2019-20 MVP candidacy. He will try to deliver another strong performance Tuesday next week at home against the Clippers.

    • Hassan Whiteside POR C
      Trail Blazers' Hassan Whiteside: Grabs back-to-back 18 boards
      29m ago

      Whiteside had 21 points (9-10 FG, 3-6 FT), 18 rebounds, five blocks and two assists in 36 minutes during Friday's 120-112 loss at Dallas.

      Whiteside has clear limitations in his game, but he has been very productive for Portland over the last few weeks. During his last 10 contests, the veteran big man is averaging 17.1 points, 16.6 rebounds and 3.6 blocks in 33.1 minutes per contest. He has registered double-digit boards and multiple blocks in each of those games, while scoring at least 15 points nine times. He will aim to extend this strong run of play Saturday on the road at Oklahoma City.

    • Carmelo Anthony POR SF
      Trail Blazers' Carmelo Anthony: Scores 22 points
      32m ago

      Anthony had 22 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3PT, 5-6 FT), and five rebounds in 32 minutes during Friday's 120-112 loss at Dallas.

      It's a small-sample size, but Anthony has topped the 15-point mark in each of his last four outings and he is shooting 51.8 percent from the field during that span. The veteran has managed to remain productive this season, and he could be in line to gain additional workload on offense if C.J. McCollum is forced to miss time due to the ankle sprain he suffered Friday.

    • Damian Lillard POR PG
      Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard: Posts double-double
      34m ago

      Lillard had 34 points (13-25 FG, 3-10 3PT, 5-7 FT), 10 assists, two steals and one rebound in 40 minutes during Friday's 120-112 loss at Dallas.

      The star point guard delivered his third double-double of the month, but he is taking another leap as a playmaker during January since he is averaging 7.9 dimes per game during the first month of 2020 -- he has dished out seven or more assists in eight of his last 10 games as well. A virtual lock to 20-plus points on a nightly basis, Lillard should remain Portland's main scoring and playmaking threat moving forward, and his offensive load could increase if C.J. McCollum is forced to miss time due to the ankle sprain he suffered Friday.

    • Filip Zadina DET LW
      Red Wings' Filip Zadina: Supplies only offense in OT loss
      9h ago

      Zadina scored a power-play goal in Friday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Penguins.

      The 20-year-old winger fired home his sixth goal of the season early in the second period to give the Wings a 1-0 lead, and Jimmy Howard very nearly made it stand up as the winner before the game slipped away in the third. Zadina has three tallies in the last six games, but they're his only points during that stretch, and on the season the sixth overall pick in the 2018 draft has 12 points in 23 NHL contests.

      Red Wings' Jimmy Howard: Takes tough loss in OT
      9h ago

      Howard stopped 35 shots in Friday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Penguins.

      The veteran netminder blanked Pittsburgh through two periods, but a Bryan Rust power play tally early in the third ended Howard's shutout bid, and then Sidney Crosby potted another goal with the man advantage in OT to hand him his 13th straight loss (0-11-2 over that stretch). This was by far Howard's best recent performance -- the last time he allowed fewer than three goals in a start was Nov. 24 -- and on the season the 35-year-old is saddled with a brutal 4.12 GAA and .882 save percentage.

      Penguins' Evgeni Malkin: Two PP helpers against Wings

      Malkin picked up two power-play assists in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings.

      He got the primary helper on both goals, including Sidney Crosby's game-winner. Malkin has produced multi-point efforts in four of his last five games, and since missing two contests in mid-December with an illness he's been the one making opposition goalies feel sick, racking up seven goals and 22 points in the last 15 games.

      Penguins' Bryan Rust: Two-point night in OT win
      9h ago

      Rust scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings.

      The 27-year-old winger finished off some tic-tac-toe passing early in the third period with his 20th goal of the season, then helped set up Sidney Crosby for the OT winner. Rust has already set new career highs in goals and points (42) through only 34 games, with five goals and 12 points coming with the man advantage. As long as he keeps getting regular shifts with Crosby and/or Evgeni Malkin, Rusts's breakout campaign should continue unabated.

      Penguins' Matt Murray: Strong effort in OT win
      9h ago

      Murray turned aside 28 shots in Friday's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings.

      All three goals on the night were scored on the power play as both netminders brought their 'A' games, and the one that got by Murray in the second period came through a screen as well. He's won four straight starts dating back to Dec. 28 as he adapts to life as the Penguins' backup behind Tristan Jarry, but on the season Murray still carries a mediocre 2.84 GAA and .899 save percentage.

      Hurricanes' Sebastian Aho: Snags only goal in loss to Ducks

      Aho scored his 24th goal of the season in Friday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Ducks.

      His deflection of a Joel Edmunson shot gave the Canes a 1-0 lead early in the first period, but it was all the offense they could muster. Aho snapped a seven-game goal drought in the process, but he's been relatively quiet overall since Christmas, scoring only three goals and seven points over his last 13 contests.
