Troy Daniels Jersey Lakers

After tweaking his left knee at practice on Monday, Los Angeles Lakers guard Troy Daniels underwent an MRI and the results came back negative, according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com. Daniels is listed as questionable with a sore knee for Tuesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

Daniels joins Anthony Davis (shoulder), Rajon Rondo (calf) and, of course, DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) on the injury report for Sunday’s game. Of those names, Cousins is the only one that for sure won’t be suiting up against Phoenix.

Not having Daniels obviously wouldn’t be as detrimental to the Lakers as not having Davis — the team’s leading scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker — but it would give them one less shooter to counter the fourth-best 3-point-shooting team in the NBA.

Daniels hasn’t been as productive as he’s been in year’s past as a 3-point shooter, and is currently shooting 31.6% from behind the arc, including 27.6% on catch-and-shoot 3-point attempts. But he’s still one of the few people on the roster that can catch fire from behind the arc. On Sunday, Daniels made three 3-pointers — tied for the team-high — on 60% shooting.

Daniels is ranked third on the team in total 3-point makes despite playing the third-least total minutes on the team. He might be struggling right now, but when taking into account his career numbers, he’s still one of the better 3-point shooters the Lakers have.

That being said, if Daniels is at risk of sustaining a more serious injury by playing through pain on Tuesday, there’s no reason for him to see the floor against his former team. It’s an 82-game season, and the Lakers are going to need his shooting in the playoffs.

The Lakers will provide an update on Daniels’ health before tip-off on Tuesday.

Quinn Cook Jersey Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors 126-93. Anthony Davis and LeBron James continued their strong play during the preseason, but it was Quinn Cook that had much of social media taking.

Quinn Cook had missed all of the preseason recovering from a sore left calf and Wednesday night he made his Lakers debut in spectacular fashion. Cook had 16 points while shooting 6-for-9 from the field and 4-for-5 from 3-point land in 15 minutes of action. He also proved to be very effective in the pick and roll, setting up teammates with 3 assists.

Cook shot the ball without hesitation and with confidence, proving how valuable shooting is from your guards. He’s a 42% career 3-point shooter on 2.7 attempts per game. James and Davis will draw double teams whenever they are on the floor, so it’s likely Cook’s attempts will improve.

Cook is accustomed to playing with superstars. In Golden State he played with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant. In his rookie season, he played with Davis briefly in New Orleans, so he has some built in rapport with the superstar big man. Playing in Golden State, he won a championship and doesn’t seem overwhelmed by the bright lights of Hollywood.

All of this is a plus for a Lakers team who last year tried to put playmakers around LeBron instead of shooting. In Wednesday’s game, the Lakers shot 15-for-30 from deep as a team, and Cook’s shooting seemed infectious.

Much has been made about who will start at point guard for the Lakers. Up until Wednesday, it seemed the Avery Bradley would start due to his ability to pressure the ball and be a good defensive backcourt with Danny Green. Rajon Rondo has seen a lot of minutes this preseason due to his playmaking ability and because James and Davis trust him, but neither Bradley or Rondo shoot like Cook.

The floor spacing Cook provides the Lakers will give James and Davis plenty of room to operate and a lock down shooter to kick it to when doubled. If Cook can keep this up, it’s likely he’s going to be in Frank Vogel’s rotation. Furthermore, he just might find himself as the first guard off the bench or starting.

Avery Bradley Jersey Lakers

When Avery Bradley signed a two-year, $9.7 million deal with the Lakers over the summer, there was no confusion on what his role would be. His job would be essentially the same one he has been tasked with over the course of the last decade — to make life miserable for the opposition.

While the actuality of Bradley’s effectiveness on defense over the course of his career has been the source of debate and skepticism, it’s difficult to argue that he has not at least played a part in what has been a stellar start on the defensive end for Los Angeles.

As of this article, the Lakers sit first in the league in terms of defensive rating (allowing just 97.9 points per 100 possessions) and third (99.6) when filtering out garbage time. Those are impressive ranks many would have found difficult to be achievable this early considering that the Lakers possess a nearly entirely new roster, coaching staff and have gone up against a tough schedule.

Bradley, who has started in the backcourt in six of the team’s seven games (missing the squad’s contest in Chicago due to a leg injury that has left him “questionable” for Friday) has been one of the tone-setters on that end, a responsibility and mentality the 28-year-old sounds dedicated to maintaining.

“My mindset going into every game is to go out there and challenge myself up against the best player on the other team,” Bradley told reporters after Thursday’s practice. “Try to make them work for every single possession.

“I know that’s my role on this team, and I know I’m going to bring it every single night,” Bradley continued, before quickly correcting himself on that last part. “Every single possession.”

During the infant stages of the new season, Bradley has been given the chance to back up his words on the court, as he appears to be coach Frank Vogel’s go-to option on the perimeter.

Against the Jazz, Bradley was tasked with checking Donovan Mitchell for 44% of his offensive possessions. Then against Dallas, Bradley was glued to Luka Doncic a whopping 57.9% of his time on the floor. Both register as the highest marks on the team, according to the NBA’s matchup data.

While individually once again seeing a variance between the eye-test and the numbers (according to three different site’s data points, the Lakers’ defense has essentially been the same with Bradley off the court as it is when he is on, although that could have something to do with him mostly going up against opposing starters) there is little denying that his effort level has been an encouraging constant.

Whether it’s picking up full-court or aggressively pressuring (sometimes to his detriment) opposing ball-handlers at the point of attack, Bradley’s approach has up to this point had a positive trickle-down effect on the team.

As comfortable as the veteran has felt in his role on the defensive end, he says he has also at times been asked to branch out on offense. Mainly by taking on a portion of the team’s ball-handling and creation duties, given the Lakers’ current lack of consistent playmaking outside of LeBron James.

It’s been a new-ish experience Bradley is openly welcoming at this stage of his career.

“I think it’s a fun challenge. As professional athletes, we want to always grow, and this is an opportunity for me to grow my game,” Bradley said.

“A lot of the credit goes to coach, and to my teammates for giving me that confidence,” Bradley continued. “It’s just making it a natural transition for me. I’m happy with the success that we’ve been able to have as a team and I’m happy that coach trusts me enough to give me those opportunities.”

Thus far, the guard has not yet seen a major statistical uptick in terms of these on-ball responsibilities. On the season, Bradley’s buckets have been assisted on 78% of the time, according to Cleaning the Glass, which would be a career high. He has also only registered four assists (10th on the team) during his 167 minutes on the floor, as well as being utilized mainly in spot-up chances (28.3% of the time). It’s possible he was referring to being asked to handle the ball some, but ball pressure has mostly forced him to give up the rock to another creator in such scenarios.

So while it’s unlikely Bradley will ever fully transform into the type of on-ball creator the team needs, he has still mostly been the player many hoped he would be within the first weeks of the season. Which is ultimately the role he’s best suited for, and the one the team needs him to excel in.

Bradley is not a player without flaws. He is however, a hard-nosed and reliable guard, one who — if nothing else — plays within himself and his role. A combination of attributes that the Lakers are thus far reaping the benefits from.

Ron Artest Jersey Lakers

Moments after one of the most devastating losses of his career, Kobe Bryant stewed in the locker-room showers, while the Boston Celtics begun their championship celebration back on the court.

As Bryant tried to recover from his Lakers’ 38-point shellacking, the most unlikely of people suddenly appeared.

In walked a fully clothed Ron Artest, who offered his help as water drenched his shoes.

Artest expressed to Bryant his desire to come to the Lakers, but first they would have to go head-to-head in the following postseason.

Artest joined the Houston Rockets over the offseason, teaming up Yao Ming and Tracy McGrady.

A fifth seed capable of doing some damage, Houston pushed the Lakers to their limit in the Western Conference Semifinals, where Bryant and Artest entered a heated duel.

It didn’t take long for the series to intensify, as the Rockets stole Game 1 before Bryant put up 40 points to capture the following contest.

That Game 2 saw tempers flare as Bryant and Artest tried to box each other out in the fourth quarter. Artest — upset that Bryant caught him in the throat with an elbow — was ejected while drenched with boos from the Staples Center crowd.

The two continued to go at it, as Artest was once again tossed in Game 3, and the series required seven games to determine the victor.

And as Bryant and the Lakers continued their march to the 2009 championship (while Artest watched from courtside as a fan), the defensive savant readied himself for an opportunity to join the purple and gold.

Shortly after the Lakers defeated Orlando in the NBA Finals, they began their quest for back-to-back titles by bringing aboard an old foe. Artest issued a statement about his new team, saying, “It will be great to finally not get booed in the Staples Center.”

Artest wasted no time bringing his trademark zaniness to Los Angeles, choosing to wear No. 37 in honor of the amount of weeks that Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” topped the charts.

But as soon as he hit the floor, it was all about the lockdown defense that the Lakers expected when they signed him.

By the third game of the season, he had impressed Bryant, who said that “we picked up our intensity, and it all started with No. 37,” after one of 18 Lakers victories in their first 21 games of the year.

With Artest leading the way defensively, the purple and gold rolled to the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference. And the former Defensive Player of the Year set the tone with his trademark flare, particularly at the end of the year.

With the playoffs looming, he spent about three hours at the barber and returned with a Lakers-gold head of hair. Inscribed in purple across his dome was the same word written in Japanese, Hebrew and Hindi: defense.

Jermaine Eluemunor Jersey Patriots

Korey Cunningham Jersey Patriots

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – In order to get down to the NFL-mandated 46-man game day roster limit, New England only had three players to deactivate Monday night. That’s because prior to arriving in the New York metropolitan area, the Patriots had already ruled out four: WR Josh Gordon (knee/ankle), TEs Ryan Izzo (concussion) and Matt LaCosse (knee), and RB Rex Burkhead (foot), who was downgraded on Sunday afternoon while the team was still in Foxborough.

The biggest news Monday is that the Patriots will shelve safety Patrick Chung (heel/chest), who couldn’t finish the previous game against the Giants. His absence tonight means we could see more of Terrence Brooks on defense. Brooks figured into the personnel groupings last game after Chung exited early.

On a positive note, WR Phillip Dorsett (hamstring) will be back in action, his first game time since being injured against Washington two weeks ago.

Meanwhile, OL Korey Cunningham is a healthy scratch tonight (not listed on the injury report), while DL Michael Bennett is serving a team-imposed suspension. Bennett’s playing time has dwindled in recent weeks, so, the Patriots should be able to withstand his absence tonight, particularly in light of New York’s inactive list.

From the Jets’ perspective, QB Sam Darnold’s blind side could be vulnerable in this game, as both starting left tackle Kelvin Beachum (ankle) and left guard Kelechi Osemele (shoulder) are out of commission. New England’s sack-happy D could target this area in an effort to pressure Darnold.

Cody Kessler Jersey Patriots

Patriots re-sign QB Cody Kessler

2500×1406-cody-kessler-headshot-patriots
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots announced that they have re-signed QB Cody Kessler. Kessler was signed by New England on Sept. 25 and released on Oct. 15 after being inactive for three games.

Kessler, 26, originally entered the NFL as a third-round draft selection (93rd overall) by Cleveland in the 2016 NFL Draft out of Southern California. 6-foot-1, 215-pounder has played in 17 regular-season games with 12 starts over his three-year career with Cleveland (2016-17) and Jacksonville (2018) and has completed 224-of-349 pass attempts (64.2%) for 2,215 yards with eight touchdowns and five interceptions. Last season with the Jaguars, Kessler appeared in five games with four starts and completed 85-of-131 pass attempts (64.9%) for 709 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while leading the Jaguars to a 2-2 record. He went to training camp with Philadelphia this past summer was and was released on Aug. 30, 2019.

Eric Tomlinson Jersey Patriots

Patriots release K Mike Nugent and TE Eric Tomlinson; Release OL Aaron Monteiro from practice squad

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots announced that they have released K Mike Nugent and TE Eric Tomlinson from the 53-man roster and OL Aaron Monteiro from the practice squad.

Nugent, 37, signed with New England on Oct. 3, 2019. He played in four games and made converted 5-of-8 field goal attempts and 15-of 16 extra point attempts. The 5-foot-10, 190-pounder was originally drafted by the New York Jets in the second-round (47th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Ohio State. Nugent spent four seasons with the Jets before moving on to Arizona (2009), Tampa Bay (2009), Cincinnati (2010-16), Chicago (2017), Dallas (2017) and Oakland (2018).

Nugent has appeared in 168 regular-season games and converted 258-of-319 (80.9%) field-goal attempts and 378-of-393 extra-point attempts for 1,122 career points. He has also played in five postseason contests and made 7-of-8 field goal attempts and all five extra points he has attempted.

Tomlinson, 27, signed with the Patriots on Oct. 15, 2019. He started both games he appeared in and caught one pass for 5 yards. Tomlinson originally entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 out of Texas El Paso. The 6-foot-6, 263-pounder, spent the first year and half on the Houston practice squad before being signed to the New York Jets on Nov. 5, 2016 from the Houston practice squad. He spent three seasons with the Jets, playing in 36 games with 29 starts and accumulating 16 receptions for 193 yards with one touchdown. Tomlinson was released by the Jets on Aug. 31, 2019 and claimed off waivers by the New York Giants on Sept. 1. After playing in three games, Tomlinson was released by the Giants on Sept. 24, 2019.

Monteiro, 22, joined the Patriots practice squad on Oct. 22, 2019. He was originally signed by Miami as a rookie free agent out of Boston College on May 9, 2019, and released on Aug. 31, 2019. The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder was a four-year letterman and three-year starter at left tackle at Boston College.

Justin Bethel Jersey Patriots

Justin Bethel giving New England Patriots teammates information on Baltimore Ravens, Starter jackets

New Patriot Justin Bethel had some jackets to give to some of his new teammates

FOXBOROUGH – Give Justin Bethel credit. The New England Patriots’ new special teams ace knows how to get on the fast track to locker room popularity.

Upon joining the Patriots, an associate of his reached out to tell him about a contact at the apparel company Starter and offered to send some jackets.

Bethel shared the wealth of warmth with his new teammates. The royal blue zip-ups with old school Patriots font across the front and the Pat the Patriot logo on the left arm were very popular.

Ten days ago, Bethel was a Raven getting ready to play New England, but now he’s handing out Patriots gear.

“Hey I’m all in,” he said.

Under the NFL’s complicated draft pick compensation rules, Bethel, a former special teams Pro Bowler, was cut last week to protect a fourth-round pick, even though coach John Harbaugh was disappointed to cut him loose.

“Very tough, very tough. I mean, that’s a decision that was made, and sometimes you make decisions based on long-term ramifications,” Harbaugh said on a conference call with New England media Wednesday. “I think in the short term, it’s not something that helped us. It’s a good player that we don’t have anymore. Ironically, he ends up there, who we’re playing next, and I think that’s just kind of the way that the Lord works sometimes. But, it wasn’t good for us as far as a short-term football thing.”

Because the Ravens were on a bye last week, Bethel was beginning prep to face New England before he was cut and then joined them. The Patriots and Ravens play Sunday at 8:20 p.m.

“It’s definitely weird. Before I came up here we talking about coming off the bye and going to play the Patriots,” he said. “It’s definitely strange. I was with those guys all through OTAs, training camp and the first half of the season. So It will definitely be interesting going back up there. I’m sure they’ll have something dialed up for me. They know how I play. They’ve seen me in practice. It’ll be interesting.”

Bethel, 29, spent six seasons in Arizona and one in Atlanta before joining Baltimore this year. He appeared in over 70 percent of the Ravens’ special teams snaps in each of the first seven games this season. He said the transition to playing in New England hasn’t been too difficult.

“It wasn’t too crazy. Obviously I’ve been playing special teams for a long time. It’s kind of the same thing,” he said. “Run down on punt, run down on kickoff. Try to make a tackle, cover. It’s trying to learn the environment more so than trying to change my play. I think I did pretty good. I’ll try to get better as the year goes on.”

He wasn’t sure how much he’d be asked to help prepare for Baltimore, but he was ready to assist if called up.

“If they ask me something I’ll help where I can,” Bethel said. “It’s been great.”

Steve Grogan Jersey Patriots

Mohamed Sanu will wear No. 14 for the Patriots, because 12 was unavailable solely due to pesky NFL rules

Grant Halverson/Getty Images
By Matt Dolloff, 985TheSportsHub.com

Veteran wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is officially a member of the New England Patriots. Just one problem: he’s worn No. 12 his whole career. And thanks solely to pesky NFL rules, he needs a new jersey number.

As reported by Mike Reiss, Sanu will wear No. 14 for the Patriots. Reiss also reported that special teams DB Justin Bethel will wear 29.

Former Patriots WR, now-Jets WR Braxton Berrios was the last to wear 14. It’s also been worn by Brandin Cooks, and most notably quarterback Steve Grogan from 1975-90.

Unfortunately for Sanu, NFL rules prohibit players from changing jersey numbers mid-season. Otherwise, Sanu would’ve almost certainly had No. 12 gifted to him by 2000 sixth-round pick Tom Brady. Sanu was a third-round pick so he gets seniority in all situations where the rules allow. Everyone knows that’s how it works.

Brady better do the No. 12 proud, or else it’s going to be horribly contentious in the Patriots locker room.
