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 […]

Rafael Nadal’s most recent Grand Slam victory came at the French Open in 2022, and with Novak Djokovic having overtaken his mark for most major titles in men’s tennis, the Spanish player conceded that his rival is the best player in history. Djokovic’s recent victory at the US Open, his third Grand Slam title this year, took his tally to 24 majors, two ahead of Nadal’s total. “I believe that numbers are numbers and statistics are statistics.

Max Muncy drew a bases-loaded, two-out walk to force in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning, Clayton Kershaw returned from the injured list and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to defeat the Colorado Rockies 2-1 on Thursday night.
