The Magic have already been busy this offseason, as have the New York Knicks. Now, both teams are apparently eyeing Gordon. The oft-injured 27 year old played in just 45 games (44 starts) for the Pelicans in 2015-16, but averaged 15.2 points, 2.7 assists and 2.5 treys (38.4 percent).
Is anything really news regarding Manziel at this point? For this infraction, if the troubled young quarterback does land with an NFL team for the upcoming season, he would have to sit the first four weeks. However, this suspension would not carry over to 2017.
Richardson pleaded guilty to a charge of resisting arrest in January after he led police on a chase in which he was clocked at driving 143 mph last summer. The Pro-Bowl defensive lineman will be forced to miss practices in the week leading up to the Jets' opener as well as the game itself.
This is obviously great news for Bosh, as the veteran forward has had each of the past two seasons cut short by the recurring blood clots. He is eyeing a return to action for training camp in the fall. Bosh was an All-Star selection for the 11th consecutive season in 2015-16, as he put up 19.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists across 53 games.
This is obviously a major blow for the Dodgers, but it does not seem right now as if Kershaw will miss more than 2-3 weeks after having an epidural to treat his ailing back. An announcement on Friday's starter is pending.
Pederson slammed into the center-field wall after making a tremendous catch Tuesday night and has been out since. He luckily only suffered a bruised A/C joint in his right shoulder and is not expected to be out of action much longer. Trayce Thompson will start in center while Howie Kendrick mans left field on Thursday afternoon.
At first glance, it may be a bit surprising to see Park out of the lineup with the Twins facing a lefty. However, the Korean-born slugger has gone 0-for-16 with a whopping 10 whiffs over the last five games and holds a weak .170/.279/.377 slash line opposite southpaws this year. The Twins will go with Trevor Plouffe at first base and Robbie Grossman at DH versus White Sox' left-hander Carlos Rodon.
Parsons is in line to make plenty of cash no matter where he lands this summer. The five-year pro played in just 61 games (51 starts) for the Mavericks in 2015-16 while dealing with injury. However, he did have a nice campaign, averaging 13.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.7 treys (41.4 percent) per game while shooting a solid 49.2 percent from the field overall.
Teixeira was in the starting lineup for four straight days following his return from a three-week stay on the DL, but got some rest on Wednesday. The switch-hitting slugger is back in the Yankees' batting order Thursday afternoon opposite Rangers' righty A.J. Griffin. Teixeira has gone 5-for-15 with a pair of homers since returning from the DL.
Sano has been out all of June due to his hamstring injury, but is drawing close to a return to the Twins' lineup. The young slugger has posted a .799 OPS with 11 homers across 50 games this year.
