Yankees place Giancarlo Stanton on IL with hamstring strain

Giancarlo Stanton has returned to the injured list — and the Yankees don’t know when the injury-plagued slugger might be ready to return to the lineup. Stanton, who was placed on the 10-day injured list on Sunday with a left hamstring strain suffered in Saturday night’s game in Tampa, will receive an MRI on Monday in New York to determine the gravity of the injury. After being limited to 18 matches last season, the former MVP — who also suffered a calf strain during spring training and was sidelined in last year’s ALCS —will make his third trip to the injured […]

Atlanta Braves ace Mike Soroka done for season with torn Achilles

Atlanta Braves ace Mike Soroka is out for the season after tearing his right Achilles tendon Monday night versus the New York Mets. Soroka was hurt in the third inning after delivering a pitch to J.D. Davis, who grounded the ball toward first baseman Freddie Freeman. Soroka broke toward first to cover the bag, only to go down on his first step off the mound. The right-hander knew right away it was a devastating injury, one that ensures he won’t be back on the mound until 2021. “It’s a freak thing that happened,” manager Brian Snitker said, delivering the grim news after the Braves lost […]

Kevin Durant rules himself out for remainder of 2019-20 season

Kevin Durant told ESPN’s The Undefeated on Friday that he will not debut for the Brooklyn Nets during the 2019-20 NBA season after it restarts next month. Durant has not played since he tore his Achilles tendon last June 11 during Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals while playing for the Golden State Warriors versus the Toronto Raptors. The two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player will be a year removed from the injury when the Nets return to action on July 31 in Orlando, Florida, in a 2019-20 season pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although Durant said he feels much improved and is training […]

Ben Simmons uncertain if able to return this season

Anyone who has had a pinched nerve in their back knows that pain can linger. That’s where 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons is right now. He has a nerve impingement in his back; something is pressing on the nerve, “pinching” it and causing pain. Simmons is going to be out three more weeks to rest and treat the condition and will be re-evaluated then, the team announced Wednesday. Simmons is the Sixers’ primary ball-handler and averages 16.9 points, 8.3 assists, 7.9 rebounds and a league-best 2.2 steals a night. The Sixers are not the same without him, and have suffered more […]

Stephen Curry to rejoin Warriors on Thursday

Stephen Curry is scheduled to return from a more than four-month absence with a broken left hand to play for Golden State versus the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night. The Warriors informed Wednesday night that Curry had been medically cleared to play and would be in the lineup Thursday in a rematch of last year’s NBA Finals won in six games by Toronto. The two-time NBA MVP missed 58 matches after falling on his left hand Oct. 30 versus Phoenix. He practiced Monday with the G League Santa Cruz Warriors, then was recalled back to the NBA team later in the day in a most […]

Rangers´ Corey Kluber pitches for fist time since arm broken

Corey Kluber faced major league hitters for the first time in 10 months — in a new uniform, no less — and said he didn’t feel any different. “Maybe a little bit beforehand,” the Texas Rangers right-hander said Sunday after throwing three innings versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. “But once you get out there and start stretching, playing catch, getting loose in the bullpen, all that stuff kinda goes away. “It just turns into another start, whether it’s the regular season or spring training. That’s kind of how everything usually goes for me.” It was Kluber’s first time facing a […]

LeBron James to miss Lakers´ game Thursday with sore groin

This season’s tilts with the Golden State Warriors have lacked their normal star power, owing to long-term injuries to All-Star guards Klay Thompson and Steph Curry. When the Lakers tip-off versus the Warriors on Thursday night in San Francisco, they too will sit a star LeBron James. The team informed Wednesday afternoon that James, 35, would sit out against Golden State with left groin soreness. It’s just the third match the league’s assists leader and MVP contender (25.5 ppg, 10.6 apg, 7.7 rpg) has missed this season. The news comes the day after a season-high 40 point effort by James, […]

Yankees shut down Luis Severino with forearm soreness

New York Yankees starter Luis Severino has been shut down with soreness in his right forearm. Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters Thursday that the right-hander will see Dr. Chris Ahmad, the team’s physician, Friday. However, GM Brian Cashman told reporters Severino won’t see the team doctor, adding that he’s uncertain if this is a short or long-term issue. Boone noted Severino has a loose body in his pitching elbow and that the soreness dates back to his last playoff start versus the Houston Astros on Oct. 15. Last year was a mess for Severino. After heading into the season with high expectations, he was immediately shut down in spring […]

Timberwolves´ Karl-Anthony Towns out indefinitely due to injury

The Minnesota Timberwolves can’t seem to catch a break. Trading for D’Angelo Russell before the deadline on Feb. 6 was met with a wave of optimism for the Wolves’ future going forward. They landed the point guard they’ve been chasing for almost a year, and it’ll subdue and fears of Karl-Anthony Towns bolting now that one of his best friends in the league is suiting up alongside him. The posibilities of making the playoffs this season are slim to none, but at the very least the pairing of Towns and Russell could develop some on-court chemistry before next campaign. That plan may be delayed, though, as […]

Phillies´ Andrew McCutchen upbeat about recovery from knee injury

Andrew McCutchen can speak firsthand about modern medical advancements. He tore his ACL last year – and it wasn’t the first time. ”I had an ACL injury when I was in high school, so to kind of compare the two, as far as the process goes and the rehab, it’s a lot quicker,” the Philadelphia outfielder said Monday. ”You’re doing things a lot faster maybe than you did 16, 17 years ago. At the same time, I’m not 16 and rehabbing. I’m 33 now.” McCutchen played only 59 matches last year before going down with a torn ACL in early […]
