Donald Sterling decides to withdraw his support for sale of the Clippers and pursue a $1 billion lawsuit against the NBA.
Great. We were hoping to have a fat-cat racist in the news for quite some time as reporting on his ignorance iss something we all cherish. Not really. As for the news -- Donald Sterling issued a one-page statement dated Monday titled "The Team is not for Sale" and said that "from the onset, I did not want to sell the Los Angeles Clippers." He is not on-board with the $2 billion sale orchestrated by his wife, so we get to stretch this annoyance out a little more.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Angels RHP Garrett Richards (knee) threw five innings in a minor league game Saturday.
Richards is very close to returning to action from a severe knee injury that he suffered at the end of 2014. He threw 69 pitches of one hit, one walk, zero run ball on Saturday and is progressing well. Due to the way that the Angels schedule is set up, they won't need a fifth starter for several weeks, giving Richards a chance to jump right into the rotation without kicking any other starters out. Richards' monster 2014 breakout campaign was legit, so as long as owners drafting him are comfortable with his health and knee, he could be a nice discount on draft day. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Stewart had a solid season last year, averaging 4.6 YPC, though he scored just three touchdowns in thirteen games. The 28-year old just 9 games over the past three seasons, and will not be able to handle the load of a workhorse back. The Panthers will likely find a running back in the draft that is capable of handling the other 8-10 carries that the Panthers expect. Considering that Stewart averaged just 13.5 carries per game in 2014, this won't destroy his already limited fantasy value. Analysis: Ben Diamond
