Carlos Alcaraz not fully committed to playing in Madrid Open

Carlos Alcaraz is being cautious with his expectations at the Madrid Open and would be happy to play “three or four matches” in his return from injury. Alcaraz stated Tuesday he has trained well in recent days but didn’t want to fully confirm his participation at the ATP 1000 tournament in the Spanish capital where he is a two-time defending champion. The third-ranked Alcaraz is coming off a right arm injury that kept him from playing in Monte Carlo and Barcelona. The Spaniard will try to win his first French Open title next month. “Today I trained with a little more […]

Novak Djokovic eases into third round at Monte Carlo Masters

Novak Djokovic made light work of his return to clay and did not face a break point when defeating Roman Safiullin 6-1, 6-2 to reach the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters on Tuesday. Serving for the match, Djokovic won on his second match point when Safiullin’s return sank into the net. Overall, Djokovic could perhaps have been a little more clinical, since he forced 19 break points and converted just five of them. It was the top-ranked Djokovic’s first clay-court tournament since winning the French Open last year to clinch a men’s-record 23rd major title. The Serbian player added the […]

Clippers to get Russell Westbrook back next week, says Ty Lue

LA Clippers point guard Russell Westbrook will return to the lineup some time next week, coach Ty Lue stated before his team’s 125-117 win at Portland on Friday night. Westbrook could be back to game action as soon as Monday versus the Indiana Pacers, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Monday’s game versus the Pacers will mark three weeks from when Westbrook underwent surgery to repair a fractured left hand he suffered March 1 against the Washington Wizards. The Clippers have missed the aggressive energy and hustle of one of the league’s top sixth men. They are 6-5 without their one-time MVP point guard. Westbrook is averaging 11.1 points, 5.1 […]

Chris Paul steadies Warriors in return, keys win off bench

Golden State Warriors guard Chris Paul pointed twice during a possession late in the third quarter of Tuesday’s victory over the Washington Wizards, directing his teammates where to go. In response, Klay Thompson slowly walked to the left side of the 3-point arc while Jonathan Kuminga quickly came in to set a screen. As the defenders came off the screen, they both stuck with Thompson on the perimeter, leaving a wide-open lane for Kuminga. Paul lobbed the ball up for the third-year forward, who completed the alley-oop. “That’s what Chris does,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He gets you organized, he gets you good looks. All season long, […]

Francis Ngannou eyes Ferreira-Bader winner after boxing match

Francis Ngannou is two weeks away from his second appearance in a professional boxing ring, but he’s already considering his eventual return to mixed martial arts.

Pirates, Mitch Keller agree to five-year extension

Right-hander Mitch Keller and the Pittsburgh Pirates are in agreement on a five-year, $77 million contract extension, sources tell ESPN, locking up another young core player as the team continues to try to return to the postseason for the first time in nearly a decade. The deal, which starts this year and ends after the 2028 season, will pay Keller $7.5 million in 2024 — more than $2 million above where he had settled with the team in arbitration, according to sources. In what would’ve been his final year of arbitration in 2025, Keller will receive $15 million. For the three free agent years […]

Hawks center Onyeka Okongwu (toe) out for ‘foreseeable future’

The Hawks are preparing to be without center Onyeka Okongwu for an indefinite period, leaving the team with serious front-line depth issues as it returns from the All-Star break. Coach Quin Snyder stated following Thursday’s practice Okongwu, who missed the final game before the break with a sprained left toe, “is not going to be available for the foreseeable future.” Snyder’s announcement was a surprise following initial expectations Okongwu would miss a week to 10 days. The loss of Okongwu, who has shared playing time with starting center Clint Capela, comes as Capela has missed the past six matches with a left adductor strain. Capela […]
