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
RB Carlos Hyde (foot) did not practice on Thursday.
Shaun Draughn will likely get his third straight start in the place of Carlos Hyde this week who didn't practice Thursday. Hyde has not done much at practice since he broke his foot and I'm not sure we will see much of him going forward. No need to risk anything with the 49ers not making any sort of playoff noise.

Eric Weddle (groin) is not practicing on Thursday.
The Chargers have been disappointing this season but Eric Weddle continues to play great for the Chargers defense. Unfortunately, Weddle missed Thursday's practice due to a groin injury. Weddle is the Chargers leading tackler and the secondary would miss him dearly if he can't play in Week 12. Analysis: James Grande
