Kemba Walker left Tuesday's game late in the fourth quarter with a leg cramp and did not return as the game was well out of reach. The Bobcats went on to defeat the Warriors in ORACLE Arena 91-75.
Walker struggled from the field in his first game back after missing the last seven due to an ankle injury as he finished with just seven points on 3 of 11 shooting from the field, including 1-for-4 from three point range, to go with six boards, seven assists, a steal, three turnovers but did finish with a positive 15 +/- rating.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
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
