    13h ago

    Henderson (foot) reverted to the Texans' reserve/non-football injury list Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Henderson underwent foot surgery Thursday after he was waived with a non-football injury designation Wednesday. His placement on reserve/NFI knocks him out for the entirety of the 2024 season, though he could be let go with an injury settlement at a later date.

    Jets' Leonard Taylor: Opens camp on PUP
    13h ago

    The Jets placed Taylor (undisclosed) on the active/PUP list Thursday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

    Despite having mid-round grades from some outlets, Taylor wasn't drafted out of Miami earlier this year and signed with the Jets as a free agent. Taylor will need to get on the field sooner rather than later if he wants to maximize his chances of making the roster.

    Saints' Nephi Sewell: Starts camp on active/PUP
    13h ago

    The Saints placed Sewell (knee) on the active/PUP list Thursday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Sewell suffered a torn ACL in Week 17 last season and isn't yet 100 percent. Undrafted out of Utah in 2022, Sewell has appeared in 20 games for the Saints over the last two seasons, mainly focusing on special teams. He'll likely fill a similar role in 2024.

    13h ago

    The Packers placed Jennings (undisclosed) on the active/PUP list Wednesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    The undrafted rookie out of South Florida must have picked up an injury during offseason practices. He's eligible to be activated at any point this summer.

    Seahawks' Easton Gibbs: Lands on NFI list
    13h ago

    The Seahawks placed Gibbs (undisclosed) on the active/NFI list Thursday, John Boyle of the team's official website reports.

    Undrafted out of Wyoming earlier this year, Gibbs signed with the Seahawks as a free agent. He'll need to get on the field sooner than later if he wants a real shot at making the team.

    Seahawks' Anthony Bradford: Starts camp on NFI list
    13h ago

    The Seahawks placed Bradford (undisclosed) on the active/NFI list Thursday, John Boyle of the team's official website reports.

    Bradford battled ankle and knee issues last season and again tweaked his ankle during OTAs earlier this offseason. But his placement on the non-football injury list suggests it's not one of those issues that landed him there. The 2023 fourth-rounder started 10 of 14 games he appeared in as a rookie and is expected to open the 2024 season as the Seahawks' starting right guard.

    Tigers' Casey Mize: Ruled out through road trip
    22m ago

    Mize (hamstring) has been ruled out through the Tigers' upcoming road trip which ends July 25, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Mize has been sidelined for all of July with a strained left hamstring. Manager A.J. Hinch said recently that the hope is the hurler will be ready to throw off a mound soon, and the skipper also indicated Mize will need to make at least one rehab start before being activated.

    Carpenter (back) hopes to begin a rehab assignment before the end of July, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Carpenter had a setback with his lumbar spine stress fracture in late June but resumed workouts earlier this month. He's been sidelined since late May and is without a timetable for return, but it's looking like he won't be an option for the Tigers until at least mid-August.

    Braves' Ramon Laureano: Activated from injured list
    1h ago

    Atlanta activated Laureano (oblique) from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    Laureano wound up missing more than three weeks of action with a left oblique strain. He will skip a rehab assignment and go right back onto Atlanta's active roster. Adam Duvall and Laureano could split starts in right field against righties, with both Duvall and Laureano likely to be in the lineup most days versus lefties.

    Diamondbacks' Ryne Nelson: Set to start opener versus Cubs
    14h ago

    Nelson will start Arizona's series opener on the road against the Cubs on Friday, Jesse Friedman of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Nelson will get the ball first as the Diamondbacks come out of the All-Star break, carrying a 4.98 ERA and 6.1 K/9 over 86.2 innings in 17 appearances, including 15 starts, this season. With Jordan Montgomery (knee) returning to the rotation this week and Eduardo Rodriguez (shoulder) and Merrill Kelly (shoulder) on the horizon, Nelson may need to impress in his next few starts to solidify his spot in the team's starting rotation.

    Marlins' Dane Myers: Placed on 10-day IL
    15h ago

    Myers (ankle) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Myers was diagnosed with a fractured left ankle Saturday and is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks, so Thursday's move to the IL comes as no surprise. The Marlins will likely promote someone to provide outfield depth prior to Friday's game against the Mets.

  • Jacob Wilson OAK SS
    Athletics' Jacob Wilson: Heading to big leagues
    16h ago

    The Athletics will promote Wilson from Triple-A Las Vegas ahead of Friday's game versus the Angels, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.

    Since being selected in the first round of the 2023 First-Year Player Draft, Wilson has quickly ascended through the Athletics' farm system. This season, he's slashed .427/.459/.673 with seven homers and 31 RBI across 183 plate appearances between Double-A Midland and Triple-A Las Vegas. The 22-year-old has played exclusively at shortstop during his time in the minors, and he'll likely claim the starting job from Max Schuemann immediately upon joining the big-league roster.

    Suns' Kevin Durant: Practices Friday
    9m ago

    Durant (calf) participated in his first Team USA practice of the summer Friday in London, but he remains questionable to play in the upcoming exhibition games Saturday and Monday, Shams Charania and Joe Vardon of The Athletic report.

    The 35-year-old has been sidelined for Team USA's training camp after he suffered a calf strain in early July, though he's been able to take part in individual drills. Coach Steve Kerr said Durant is still considered day-to-day but would "love for him to play in a game." Assuming Durant can avoid any setbacks, he appears on track to be available for the start of Olympic action.

    Timberwolves' Terrence Shannon: Won't return Thursday
    10h ago

    Shannon will not return to Thursday's Summer League game against the Rockets due to a left toe injury.

    The extent of Shannon's toe injury isn't clear at the moment, so it's unclear if the issue will impact his status for Opening Night. He'll end his evening with one rebound over seven minutes.

    Cavaliers' Jaylon Tyson: Nets 21 points on nine shots
    11h ago

    Tyson scored 21 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT) during Thursday's exhibition loss to the Lakers, adding 11 rebounds, nine assists, one three-pointer, two steals and two turnovers across 32 minutes.

    Tyson was coming off a 2-of-6 shooting performance, but he got things back on track in this one, finishing 6-of-9 from the field and 8-of-9 at the stripe. Overall, Tyson has looked pretty good in Las Vegas, so it'll be interesting to see if the 21-year-old can immediately earn a sizable role in Cleveland. He'll be someone to keep an eye on over training camp and the preseason.

    Lakers' Dalton Knecht: Leads LAL to win with 20 points
    11h ago

    Knecht guided to Lakers' Summer League squad to victory Thursday behind 20 points (7-of-16 FG, 4-of-4 FT), seven rebounds, two triples, one assist, one steal and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

    Knecht took the night off Wednesday for rest, but he was right back at it Thursday evening, and he again led the Lakers' Summer League team in scoring. He may be able to earn a sixth-man role in Los Angeles this season, and if that's the case, he could potentially have some low-end value as a points and triples guy. We'll be monitoring him over training camp and the preseason.

  • Noah Clowney BKN PF
    Nets' Noah Clowney: Drills five triples in win
    12h ago

    Clowney converted five three-pointers on eight attempts and tallied 18 points (6-11 FG, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two turnovers across 34 minutes in Thursday's Summer League win over Orlando.

    Clowney was hot from beyond the arc, but there's no reason to overreact to one exhibition game in July. He attempted a total of 33 three-pointers last season and converted only 12 of them, and prior to today's outburst, he had gone 3-of-13 from distance in Las Vegas. Still, Clowney remains an exciting prospect, but as long as Nic Claxton is in Brooklyn, his upside will be muted.

    Balsa Koprivica: Rights sent to Utah
    13h ago

    The Jazz acquired the rights to Koprivica from the Clippers as part of Thursday's Russell Westbrook-Kris Dunn swap, Ben Anderson of KSL News Salt Lake City reports.

    Koprivica was drafted with the 57th overall selection in the 2021 NBA Draft by the Pistons, and then his draft rights were later traded to the Clippers in 2023, so this is the third time he's been traded despite never playing in the league. It seems unlikely that he'll be leaving his team in Serbia any time soon.

    Max Comtois: Signs KHL deal
    1d ago

    Comtois signed a contract with Dynamo Moscow of the KHL on Thursday.

    No terms were announced. The 25-year-old forward spent his first five seasons with the Ducks before playing one game at the NHL level in 2023-24 with Carolina. Comtois spent most of 2023-24 in the AHL, picking up 19 goals and 25 assists in 65 regular-season appearances with Chicago. Comtois played 211 regular-season NHL games, scoring 38 goals and adding 49 assists. The feisty winger is young enough that he could eventually return to the NHL after his stint overseas.

    Hurricanes' Jack Drury: Inks two-year deal
    2d ago

    Drury signed a two-year, $3.45 million contract with the Hurricanes on Wednesday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Drury was a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level contract. He had eight goals, 27 points and 33 PIM in 74 regular-season contests with Carolina in 2023-24. Drury is likely to open the upcoming season as a member of the third line.

    Evgeny Kuznetsov: Getting contract terminated
    2d ago

    Kuznetsov was put on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract, the Hurricanes announced Wednesday.

    Kuznetsov had one season remaining on his eight-year, $62.4 million contract. When an NHL agreement is mutually terminated rather than bought out, the remaining cap hit and salary are erased from the books, which will save each of Carolina and Washington $3.9 million for the 2024-25 campaign. Kuznetsov struggled in 2023-24, finishing the regular season with eight goals and 24 points across 63 contests. He's likely to join the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg.

  • Kevin Mandolese COL G
    Avalanche's Kevin Mandolese: Signs with new team
    3d ago

    Mandolese signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Tuesday.

    Mandolese's rights were acquired from Ottawa on Monday, and it didn't take Colorado long to get the 23-year-old goalie under contract. Mandolese is likely to spend most of 2024-25 with AHL Colorado, though he has three games of NHL experience and could see some time with the big club if Alexandar Georgiev or Justus Annunen are sidelined at any point.

  • Simon Holmstrom NYI RW
    Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Signs one-year deal
    3d ago

    Holmstrom signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Islanders on Tuesday, per PuckPedia.

    Holmstrom and the Islanders were able to work out a deal outside of his qualifying offer, which would have paid him marginally more. That would have been a two-way agreement, but the contract Holmstrom penned instead is a one-way deal, which suggests the team has faith in the winger spending most of the year in the NHL. He produced 25 points over 75 regular-season outings in 2023-24, playing mainly in a middle-six role, though he also shot 20.8 percent, which makes him a candidate for regression.

  • Torey Krug STL D
    Blues' Torey Krug: Dealing with ankle injury
    3d ago

    Krug was diagnosed with pre-arthritic changes in his left ankle and will be evaluated in 6-8 weeks.

    That timeline puts Krug's next check-up at just before training camp. If his ankle gets worse, surgery is on the table, which would cost him the entire 2024-25 campaign. As is, it's likely the defenseman misses at least some time early in the season since his offseason ramp-up will be disrupted. If Krug misses the year, it could lead to a full-time role for Pierre-Olivier Joseph on the third pairing, while Scott Perunovich and Justin Faulk would figure to get the most additional power-play time.
