Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been suspended for life and fined $2.5 million.
As I noted earlier, Adam Silver promised a quick investigation and I expected him to penalize Sterling as harshly as possible and did he ever. I personally want to commend him on taking the action needed and let everyone know that these type actions will not be tolerated. Tracy Wolfson of CBS Sports just tweeted, "Wizards staying at my hotel. Cheers just came from a room nearby after Silver made his announcement". I expect that's the reaction of just about everyone in the NBA today. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Sean Marshall (shoulder) has resumed throwing from flat ground.
Marshall was shut down at the beginning of spring training with shoulder soreness, but has resumed throwing. Last June, Marshall underwent season ending shoulder surgery after making just 15 appearances in 2014. The only thing scarier than last season's 7.71 ERA is the fact that he has had some sort of shoulder injury in each of the last three seasons. Leave this guy off your draft board.

Nathan Eovaldi has been working on improving his splitter during spring training.
Eovaldi is more of a thrower than a pitcher right now, but the Yankees are hoping he can develop into a mainstay in their rotation. Even though he hasn't had a winning season in his four year career, his velocity is hope for optimism. Eovaldi got knocked around a lot last year, but he doesn't walk many batters, something else the Yankees are excited about. Eovaldi is going late in drafts and there is some solid value to be had if he can take the next step forward. Analysis: Colby Conway
