    Ravens' Justin Tucker: Rare missed extra point Sunday
    7m ago

    Tucker went 4-for-5 on extra-point attempts Sunday against the Patriots and converted a 56-yard field-goal attempt.

    It was a surprise for Tucker to miss an extra point Sunday, though he did salvage his day from a fantasy perspective by hitting a 50-plus-yard field goal for the second week in a row. Tucker did not miss an extra point in 32 tries last season and hadn't missed one since Week 14 of 2020. Even with the rare miss Sunday, Tucker is tied for the league lead in extra points made and tied for second in the NFL in 50-yard field goals made. The Ravens host the Bills in Week 4.

    1h ago

    Akin was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

    After giving up three earned runs over just a third of an inning Sunday, Akin will spend some time in the minors. He was in the middle of a career year -- recording a 3.40 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 76.2 innings -- but he will be sent to Triple-A nonetheless. Logan Gillaspie will be promoted to replace Akin in the Orioles' bullpen.

    Gillaspie was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday.

    Gillaspie's last major league stint came in mid-August when he threw 1.2 scoreless innings over two appearances. This season, he's been much more effective in Baltimore -- where he has a 0.00 ERA over 6.1 innings -- compared to on the road (11.25 ERA). Keegan Akin was optioned down to Norfolk in order to make room for Gillaspie.

    Orioles' Jesus Aguilar: Sits third straight
    1h ago

    Aguilar isn't in the lineup for Monday's game in Boston.

    Aguilar has made one start in the last six days, and it seems as if the Orioles are content with using multiple other players in the designated hitter spot. Anthony Santander will get the nod Monday, moving Austin Hays over to right field and giving Kyle Stowers a start in left field while batting eighth.

    Yankees' Matt Carpenter: Could return in a week
    2h ago

    Manager Aaron Boone said he is hopeful Carpenter (foot) could return during their final series against Texas, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

    Boone went on to say that the Yankees are "still a ways away from having an idea if that's going to be possible or not." Carpenter has been held out of action since the beginning of August with a fracture in his left foot. If he's unable to make it back for the end of the regular season, there is still a solid chance he can return to New York's lineup at some point during their playoff run.

    Tillie (back) is still limited entering training camp, Damichael Cole of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.

    Tillie appeared in just four contests post-All-Star break last season due to injuries and remains limited for the start of Memphis' training camp. The extent of the 24-year-old's injury remains unclear, but there'll likely be more clarity as the regular season approaches.

    Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Will participate in training camp
    5h ago

    Leonard (knee) said Monday that'll he'll participate in the team's first practice of training camp Tuesday, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Leonard missed all of the 2021-22 campaign due to ACL surgery last July, but he's recently been cleared for 5-on-5 work and appears ready for the start of the 2022-23 season. However, he did say that he'll be gradually building up from the first practice, so it's possible the superstar forward remains limited at the beginning of training camp.

  • Kendrick Nunn LAL SG
    Lakers' Kendrick Nunn: Cleared for full contact
    5h ago

    Nunn (knee) reiterated at Monday's media day that he's fully healthy heading into the 2022-23 season, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports. "It's been a long process," Nunn said. "But I think it's been going good, going great. The process has been slow. I feel real good going into the season."

    Nunn missed all of last season while recovering from a bone bruise to his right knee, which took significantly longer than both he and the team anticipated. The hope is that he's able to hit the ground running and step in as a contributor right away, but given the long layoff, it's possible the Lakers bring him back up to speed gradually. Entering last season, the Lakers were counting on Nunn for production off the bench after he posted 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.2 made threes per game for the Heat in 2020-21. HIs three-point shooting -- 38.1 percent in 2020-21 -- will be particularly valuable for a team that struggled to space the floor around LeBron James a year ago.

  • Zach LaVine CHI SG
    Bulls' Zach LaVine: Ready for training camp
    5h ago

    Bulls executive Arturas Karnisovas said Monday that Zach LaVine (knee) is ready for training camp, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

    LaVine underwent success arthroscopic surgery in May to address a knee issue that lingered for the majority of the 2021-22 campaign. However, he still posted 24.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists across 34.7 minutes per game. The surgery didn't spot the All-Star wing from signing a five-year, $215 million contract this offseason. Now that he's healthy, LaVine will look to replicate, if not improve upon, his All-Star season from a year ago.

  • Denis Malgin TOR RW
    Maple Leafs' Denis Malgin: Coach impressed with play at camp
    3m ago

    Malgin has impressed coach Sheldon Keefe early in training camp, reports TSN.ca.

    Keefe likes Malgin's hunger and competitiveness away from the puck, especially in pursuit of the disc. The five-foot-nine forward is crafty with the puck once he has it -- he delivered 21 goals and 52 points in 48 games last season with Zurich in the Swiss League. Stronger two-way play is key to earning a spot on the lower lines in Toronto.

  • William Carrier LV LW
    Golden Knights' William Carrier: Expected back soon
    5h ago

    Carrier's "mid-body" injury is not expected to sideline him long term according to coach Bruce Cassidy, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports Monday.

    Per Cassidy, the Knights will have the day off Wednesday which will allow the team to get a better idea of Carrier's status. At a minimum, Carrier figures to miss Monday's preseason matchup with the Kings. While the 27-year-old winger will likely fill a bottom-six role this season, he should still be in contention for power-play minutes.

    5h ago

    Stone (back) practiced in a regular sweater Monday, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

    Stone continues to work his way back from injury and seems poised to be ready to play Opening Night versus the Kings. Once cleared to play, Stone should slot into a top-six role in addition to linking up with the No. 1 power-play unit, setting Stone up to get back over the 60-point threshold for the seventh time in his NHL career.

  • Brock Boeser VAN RW
    Canucks' Brock Boeser: Undergoes hand procedure
    6h ago

    Boeser had hand surgery Monday that will sideline him for 3-4 weeks.

    Boeser figures to miss the first two weeks of the season given his recovery timeline outlined by the team, if not longer. Despite missing some games, Boeser should still be capable of reaching the 40-point threshold for a fourth straight season and could even push for 50. As such, Boeser figures to offer top-half fantasy value once cleared to play.

  • Cody Ceci EDM D
    Oilers' Cody Ceci: Returns to ice
    7h ago

    Ceci (hamstring) joined the main training camp group Monday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Ceci was expected to miss the first three days of training camp but is now back and healthy to get onto the ice with his teammates. After racking up 28 points in 78 games for the club last season, Ceci should be capable of offering solid mid-range fantasy value as a 25-30 point producer this year, though he likely won't feature with the man advantage.

  • MacKenzie Blackwood NJ G
    Devils' Mackenzie Blackwood: Starting preseason contest
    7h ago

    Blackwood will get the starting nod against the Canadiens on Monday, Sam Kasan of the Devils' official site reports.

    Blackwood had previously been tapped to be the full-time starter for the Devils but with the 25-year-old unable to stay healthy -- he was limited to just 25 appearances last season -- the club went out and got Vitek Vanecek in the offseason. The duo will likely be one of the few true goalie battles around the league during training camp to see who can claim the starting gig for Opening Night.
