Kobe Bryant (knee) said on Sunday if he gets a clean MRI next week he'll do more then just ride a bike in rehab.
It is not real news until he does more than a ride bike. Keep stashing him for now. However, I would be trying to trade him for a player that can produce now. ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Calvin Johnson (ankle) practiced on Monday.
The Lions will play the Thursday game again this week, so while they've had a full seven days to prepare, Megatron won't take his usual day off from practice. That has to be encouraging to plenty of fantasy owners as he and Matthew Stafford would like to build off such a strong Thanksgiving performance. Analysis: Howard Bender
Reds signed C Dayan Diaz to a minor league contract.
Diaz climbed up from High-A to Triple-A over two seasons in the Red Sox system and finished last year with a 1.89 ERA and 7.74 K/9 over 57 innings of relief at the highest point. He could find a place in the Reds bullpen, though he could be better suited as one of those guys who rides the shuttle between Louisville and Cincinati all year. Analysis: Howard Bender
