Derrick Rose to miss at least the next two weeks with ankle injury

first_imgCLEVELAND– Derrick Rose will miss the next two weeks due to a lingering ankle injury.Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue confirmed the news Friday during his pregame media availability ahead of Cleveland’s showdown with the L.A. Clippers.Rose sprained his ankle during the second game of the season on Oct. 20 against the Milwaukee Bucks. The injury has continued to nag him. According to a status update from the team, Ros received additional imaging and evaluation today at the Cleveland Clinic. He will be immobilized in a walking boot for the next week and will treatment over the next two to three weeks.Iman Shumpert will continue to start at point guard in his place, according to Lue.“He’s been great, I think playing under control, having a bigger guy to guard the point guards and being physical with the guys at the point guard position has been good for us,” Lue said.But given the success the Cavs had on their road trip without Rose, will Lue need to reconsider his place in the rotation?“Not really,” Lue said. “I mean, we still really miss a true point guard. It’s hard trying to just mix and match, have Jeff (Green) play the point, (Dwyane) Wade, different guys. We’ve done a good job handling and we know he’s going to be out at least two weeks now, and we’ve got to just continue to keep plugging away.” Related TopicsCavsClevelandCleveland CavaliersDerrick RoseDerrick Rose InjuryDwyane WadeIman ShumpertJeff GreenNBATyronn Lue Ashley Bastockcenter_img Ashley is a former basketball player who covers the Cleveland Cavaliers, Indians and high school sports for NEO Sports Insiders.

MSU drops 5th straight to USC Upstate

first_imgBelieve it or not, there was so much Rick Ray liked about his team’s performance on Saturday.Mississippi State’s men’s basketball coach was pleased with his squad’s hustle, energy and “defensive intensity.”There’s just one problem – and it’s a big one at that.It didn’t add to a victory.The Bulldogs (5-5) fell 53-51 at the hands of mid-major South Carolina-Upstate (9-4) with a few hundred fans sprinkled in the stands at the Mississippi Coliseum.“Our guys made a concerted effort to do the things the coaching staff wanted them to do,” Ray said. “…We have to continue to do the things we did today.”Mississippi State is now on a five-game losing streak to non-conference opponents for the first time since the 1963-64 season.“That game right there hurt,” Ray said. “That one hurt our guys.”MSU knotted the score at 51-all after Fallou Ndoye followed up on a Roquez Johnson missed layup with 17.7 seconds left.On USC Upstate’s next possession, Ty Greene hit a 15-foot, fade-away jumper to give the Spartans the lead – and, a few ticks later, the win.MSU guard I.J. Ready corralled the inbounds pass, dribbled the length of the court and missed a floater as time expired.“The mood in the locker room, there are no hanging heads,” said Jackson-native Fred Thomas, who posted seven points and eight rebounds with several of his family members in the crowd. “We played great this game. …We just have to overcome this.”Johnson, who led all scorers with 15 points, wasn’t as cheery.Johnson was one of just two Bulldogs to reach double digits, joined by Ndoye’s 11-point night.“I’m very disappointed,” Johnson said. “And I know other guys are.”It’s hard to blame him.MSU’s skid includes back-to-back losses to Sun Belt and Atlantic Sun Conference foes.“I didn’t look at those games and say, ‘These are going to be Ws,’” Ray said. “… The Arkansas State (loss) shouldn’t have hurt because we just didn’t give the effort needed to win. … We did in this one, that’s why it hurts.”Mississippi State came out flat to start the game, shooting 30 percent from the field – including 0-of-6 from 3-point range – to head into halftime down 22-15.The Bulldogs led just once in the first half.“We just didn’t bring it in the first half,” Johnson said.The second-half started much differently.The Bulldog opened on a 6-0 run, reclaiming the lead with nine minutes left.But the Spartans wouldn’t let it last.USC Upstate surged to an 8-0 run after MSU claimed its lead.The Spartans had three shooters reach double digits, fronted by Damian Goodwin’s 14 points.“USC Upstate is a good team,” Ray said.Contact Riley Blevins at (601) 961-7344 or rblevins@jackson.gannett.com.

Hamilton dedicated pole position to actor Chadwick Boseman – F1sport.cz

first_imgThe Mercedes driver admitted that the death of an actor who succumbed to colon cancer at the age of 43 hit him hard on Saturday morning.“Each round was getting better and better. We did a lot of great work in the background. Today, it’s a very important pole position for me because I woke up with the sad news of Chadwick’s death. It has been a very difficult year for all of us, and this report really broke me. I want to dedicate this pole position to Chadwick, “said Hamilton.“It was not easy to concentrate. I knew I had to go and do it perfectly, because what he did for superheroes shows all the little kids what’s possible. He shone. Wakanda forever, “he added.Hamilton did not even use the help of a windbag from his teammate Valtteri Bottas on the flat to gain pole position, although he could choose to go first or second.“I chose to go first. I wanted to be in the fresh air and not take care of the riders in front of me and keep my distance from them in the last turn. I didn’t want anything to get in my way, it worked.“As you can see, some are very fast in the first and last sector, but they don’t have such a good middle section of the track. We were not the strongest today in the first and last (sector), but the means was very good. ”Bottas lost half a secondValtteri Bottas took second place with a loss of 511 thousandths of a second. He narrowly defeated Max Verstappen of the Red Bull, who was 15,000ths behind him.“Everything looked pretty good in the qualification itself. Only on the first try in Q3 did I brake to the first turn. I don’t think I warmed up the tires enough in the warm-up lap, “said Bottas.“It simply came to our notice then. I may not have had the best first turn, but it was good. Otherwise, the bike was nice and clean and I really felt like I was riding at the limit. But it is quite a big loss. I don’t know how yet, but Lewis did a good job today, “he added.“I don’t bother too much because I know that the second position is actually quite good for the start. It’s always quite an interesting run into the fifth turn, I’m looking forward to tomorrow, “Bottas recalls the opportunity to ride on the Kemmel plain behind Hamilton in a windsock.last_img read more
