Warriors’ Omri Casspi expected to return for Monday’s game vs. Dallas

MEMPHIS — Perhaps the biggest potential obstacle that could derail the Warriors’ championship-or-bust season is injury. As Celtics forward Gordon Hayward’s gruesome fractured tibia on opening night underscored, even a championship contender isn’t immune from a season-altering injury. Staying healthy was a driving force behind Golden State’s 2015 and 2017 NBA titles. Though their latest title defense is still in its infancy, the Warriors remain relatively unscathed health-wise Forward Omri Casspi (left ankle sprain) is Golden State’s only player...

Jose Calderon likely to start Saturday against Orlando

With Derrick Rose out, the Cavs will have a new point guard in. With Derrick Rose nursing an ankle sprain, the Cleveland Cavaliers appear like they will need to make a change at point guard for Saturday night’s showdown against the Orlando Magic. Per ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue expressed skepticism towards Derrick Rose’s status for Saturday’s game: Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said he is "kind of assuming" Rose will miss the tail end of Cleveland's back-to-back Saturday at home against the Orlando Magic.

Why weren’t the Chiefs more aggressive on their final drive?

Why weren’t the Chiefs more aggressive on their final drive?

The Kansas City Chiefs dropped their second game of the season Thursday night to the Oakland Raiders, but they probably shouldn’t have, given they had a fresh set of downs on offense with 4:15 left on the clock leading 30-24. Oakland had two timeouts remaining. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid called back-to-back Kareem Hunt runs equating to six yards before Alex Smith was sacked at the Kansas City 29-yard line. So why did Reid opt to run with Hunt to, in the radio host’s words, “run clock,” instead of passing on all three downs for the first down? “Who ran clock? I’m not sure on...
