    31m ago

    Barno (knee) is not participating in voluntary workouts Tuesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Barno finished out the 2023 campaign on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury Week 16 against the Packers. Although it's not clear what specifically the injury was or how much longer it may affect him, it appears to still be a big enough issue that the Virginia Tech product is not taking part in drills. Luckily, for the Barno and the Panthers, training camp is still about three months away.

    Eagles' Isaiah Rodgers: Restrictions lifted
    37m ago

    Rodgers was reinstated by the NFL on Tuesday after he was suspended for the 2023 season for violating the NFL's gambling policy, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Rodgers was originally suspended in June of 2023 after making bets on NFL games, which led to him being waived by the Colts. Despite the suspension, the UMass product inked a new deal with the Eagles two months later. With his suspension lifted, Rodgers will now be able to participate in all team activities for the first time since he signed with Philadelphia.

    Broncos' Patrick Surtain: Has fifth-year option picked up
    41m ago

    The Broncos picked up the fifth-year option on Surtain's rookie contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    The ninth overall pick in the 2021 Draft, Surtain so far has met expectations in his three-year career, earning back-to-back Pro Bowl appearances the last two seasons and even first-team All-Pro honors in his second campaign. Overall, he has seven interceptions among 36 pass defenses in 50 regular-season contests while averaging 63.6 tackles per 17 games played, making him a respectable option in IDP formats. With Tuesday's transaction, Surtain now is locked in in Denver through the 2025 season.

    44m ago

    Thompson (lower leg) is participating during voluntary workouts Tuesday, Mike Kaye of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Thompson fractured his fibula Week 2 against the Saints, which sidelined the veteran linebacker for the remainder of the 2023 campaign. His ability to take part in drills Tuesday would suggest the 30-year-old has moved past the injury and is fully healthy as the Panthers begin early preparation for the upcoming season.

    1h ago

    Wonnum (quadriceps) is missing voluntary workouts Tuesday, Joe Person of The Athletic reports.

    Wonnum is still on the mend after surgery to repair his quadriceps, which he injured during Week 16 of last season. The South Carolina product inked a deal with the Panthers in March, so although it seems the franchise is not worried about his injury, it's not clear yet when he'll be ready to participate in the team's offseason programs.

    Red Sox's Rafael Devers: Should start Wednesday
    3m ago

    Manager Alex Cora said Devers (knee), who is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Guardians, is scheduled to start as the designated hitter Wednesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republicanreports.

    Devers was originally expected to rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's series opener, but the club decided he could use one more day, especially with the weather forecast for Tuesday being questionable. The veteran third baseman hasn't seen the field since April 17 due to a bone bruise on his left knee.

    Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Tracking toward return next week
    5m ago

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that LeMahieu (foot) could be activated for the team's April 29-May 2 series in Baltimore, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    LeMahieu will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Somerset on Tuesday and is slated to play four games before being activated if all goes well. The veteran infielder is coming back from a bone bruise and non-displaced fracture in his right foot. He should become the Yankees' primary third baseman upon his return, with Oswaldo Cabrera shifting back to a utility role.

    8m ago

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone said Tuesday that Cole (elbow) could begin throwing off a mound sometime next week, Greg Joyce of the New York Post reports.

    Cole extended his flat-ground throwing to 120 feet on Tuesday, which is typically the farthest distance from which a pitcher plays catch before he gets on a mound. While nothing definitive has been decided in regards to a bullpen session, it sounds like one could be coming within the next week or so. Cole is working his way back from nerve irritation and edema in his right elbow.

    Jung will have his fractured right wrist examined Friday, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    Progress on Jung's healing will be evaluated, and the hope is that he will get a better idea during the exam as to what a potential timeline for a return could look like. Jung had surgery on the wrist in early April and the rough timetable provided at the time was 8-to-10 weeks.

    Tigers' Spencer Torkelson: Receives first day off
    19m ago

    Torkelson is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rays.

    Torkelson started the first 23 games of the season, but he has a .231/.311/.319 slash line and will take a seat Tuesday. Mark Canha will shift to first as Riley Greene serves as the designated hitter and Wenceel Perez receives a start in right field.

    Red Sox's Triston Casas: Diagnosed with fractured rib
    19m ago

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday that Casas has been diagnosed with a fracture in his left ribcage and will be "out a while," Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Casas suffered the injury on a swing during Saturday's game in Pittsburgh and was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday. It's a vague timetable provided by Cora, but a clearer picture should be available in the coming days and weeks. Bobby Dalbec is the current favorite to handle the bulk of the first base reps for Boston, but the club could seek help from outside the organization.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL PF
    Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Officially ruled out
    3m ago

    Antetokounmpo (calf) has been ruled out for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Pacers.

    As expected, Antetokounmpo has been downgraded from doubtful to out while he continues to recover from a left soleus strain. Without their star player, the Bucks were able to win Game 1 behind a stellar first-half performance from Damian Lillard, affording Antetokounmpo some extra rest, but if Milwaukee drops Game 2 at home, there may be added pressure for the MVP candidate to return Friday, when the series shifts to Indiana for Game 3.

    Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Hopeful to return in postseason
    44m ago

    Williamson (hamstring), who will be re-evaluated in one week, says it is "realistic" he returns in the postseason, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Williamson exited the Pelicans' first Play-In Tournament game against the Lakers with a hamstring strain and has not played since. However, Williamson says he is hopeful to eventually make his postseason return, which would likely require a second-round matchup. Despite not having Williamson available for Game 1 against the top-seeded Thunder, the Pelicans kept it close, losing 94-92. How quickly the medical staff clears him may depend on how the remainder of the series plays out.

    Heat's Terry Rozier: Won't suit up Wednesday
    2h ago

    Rozier (neck) has been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Celtics, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Rozier will now miss his eighth straight game, and it is unclear whether the team will look to rush him back for the remainder of the series without Jimmy Butler (knee). The 30-year-old is considered week-to-week and against the Celtics, so it would not come as a surprise for Rozier to miss the entirety of the series. With Rozier out, Delon Wright, Duncan Robinson and Patty Mills are all likely candidates to see an uptick in playing time.

    Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Present at shootaround

    Leonard (knee) is officially listed as questionable but was present for the Clippers' morning shootaround before Tuesday's Game 2 against the Mavericks, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com

    Leonard was ruled out for Sunday's Game 1 win, his ninth consecutive absence, but has a chance to return Tuesday. The Clippers will likely decide the veteran's availability closer to the 10 p.m. ET tipoff after seeing how he fares in pregame warmups. If Leonard is ruled out again, expect Terance Mann and Amir Coffey to pick up extra minutes.

    Nuggets' Michael Porter: Goes for 22 points in Game 2
    5h ago

    Porter totaled 22 points (8-13 FG, 6-10 3Pt), nine rebounds, one assist and two steals in 38 minutes during Monday's 101-99 victory over the Lakers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Porter sniffed a double-double for the second consecutive game after delivering a 19-point, eight-rebound effort in Game 1 on Saturday, and the forward continues to impact both ends of the court for Denver. Even though he doesn't get the same attention as Nikola Jokic or Jamal Murray, Porter is a key piece in the Nuggets' offensive scheme, and he's averaging 16.2 points with 7.3 rebounds per game in April, including regular-season contests.

  • Nikola Jokic DEN C
    Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Posts triple-double in Game 2 win
    5h ago

    Jokic closed Monday's 101-99 win over the Lakers in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals with 27 points (9-16 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), 20 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals across 41 minutes.

    Jamal Murray might have grabbed most of the headlines after draining a buzzer-beating, game-winning shot to lift Denver to victory, but Jokic's contributions can't be overlooked, as the MVP favorite posted a triple-double while dealing with the menace of Anthony Davis on both ends of the court. Jokic extended an impressive run that has seen him record a double-double or a triple-double in each of his last 16 games, a span in which he's averaging 28.3 points, 13.4 rebounds and 8.4 assists per game.

    Avalanche's Chris Wagner: Hits waivers
    2h ago

    Wagner was placed on waivers Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Wagner will probably remain with the Avalanche for Tuesday's Game 2 matchup versus Winnipeg. He will likely serve as a healthy scratch for a second straight outing. Wagner had one goal, one assist, 16 shots on net and 30 hits in 13 NHL contests during the 2023-24 regular season.

    Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Slated to start Game 2
    2h ago

    Shesterkin is expected to guard the crease for Tuesday's Game 2 home matchup with Washington, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.

    Shesterkin is riding a three-game winning streak during which he posted a 0.98 GAA, .963 save percentage and one shutout. While Jonathan Quick has been a capable backup this year, securing 18 wins in 27 appearances, the 28-year-old Shesterkin should remain firmly cemented in the starting role throughout the postseason.

    Golden Knights' Nicolas Hague: Sustains undisclosed injury
    2h ago

    Hague -- who missed the last eight minutes of Game 1 versus the Stars on Monday -- will be reevaluated prior to Game 2 on Wednesday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    While Hague's potential absence is unlikely to impact the Golden Knights' offensive game, he's pointless in 20 straight matches, he does add a level of physicality with 60 hits over that stretch. If Hague can't play Wednesday, coach Bruce Cassidy will have the choice between Alec Martinez or Ben Hutton for the third pairing.

    Canucks' Casey DeSmith: Tending twine in Game 2
    2h ago

    DeSmith will patrol the home crease Tuesday in Game 2 against Nashville, according to Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650.

    DeSmith will get the nod after Thatcher Demko (undisclosed) was injured following Sunday's series-opening victory over the Predators. DeSmith filled in admirably as the Canucks' No. 1 netminder during the regular season when Demko was out due to a knee injury. The 32-year-old DeSmith posted a 12-9-6 record with a 2.89 GAA and an .895 save percentage in 29 appearances. He also stopped 26 shots in a 5-2 win over Nashville on Dec. 19.

    Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Tending twine Tuesday
    2h ago

    Bobrovsky will defend the home cage against the Lightning in Game 2 on Tuesday.

    Bobrovsky faced just 19 shots in Game 1, stopping 17 of them on the way to an .895 save percentage. Despite posting a sub-900 save percentage, the 35-year-old Russian still managed to secure an important victory for the Cats -- extending his winning streak to three games. Barring an injury, Bobrovsky should be between the crease for every game in the playoffs.

    Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Out Tuesday, considered day-to-day
    3h ago

    Demko is considered day-to-day with an undisclosed injury and won't play in Tuesday's Game 2 versus the Predators, Canucks rinkside reporter Kate Pettersen reports.

    Demko was solid in Sunday's Game 1, stopping 20 of 22 shots en route to a 4-2 win over Nashville. The good news is Demko's undisclosed injury isn't related to the knee issue that kept him out from March 13 to April 13. The bad news is the Canucks will be without their No. 1 netminder for at least one playoff game and potentially more. Casey DeSmith will take over for Vancouver between the pipes until Demko is ready to return.
