The 76ers have reportedly inquired about trading for the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on June 26. The Cleveland Cavaliers were awarded the top spot during last month’s lottery.

While Jabari Parker and Dante Exum make for perfectly fine selections, the Sixers, who pick at No. 3, have their sites set on both Joel Embiid and Andrew Wiggins. Cleveland has not mentioned exactly what it would take to trade their No. 1 overall selection, but you have to figure it's pretty pricey.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Andrew Quarless will practice Monday for the first time since his Week 3 knee injury.

The Packers made the decision to put Andrew Quarless on the injured reserve/designated to return with a MCL injury. The injury was only suppose to keep him out of the lineup 4-6 weeks but the Packers were able to save a roster spot. Richard Rodgers has turned into a nice red zone threat for the Packers while Quarless was on the sidelines.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Rob Gronkowski is unlikely to miss more than one game, if he misses at all.

It really is amazing, the power of social media. It looks like the #PrayForGronk hashtag throughout social media has worked and all of New England can rejoice together because they avoided catastrophe. We will have to wait until it becomes official but from multiple sources, the injury does not seem to be as bad as it looked on the field Sunday night.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Ben Roethlisberger placed himself in the concussion protocol, but may not have a concussion.

As of right now, we all fully expect Ben Roethlisberger to play on Sunday against the Colts but he had self-reported his symptoms and was placed in the concussion protocol, but there has been no report as to whether he actually suffered a concussion. It is a good sign that his symptoms had reportedly "subsided quickly," so it could be a quick trip through the NFL's concussion protocol.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Colts signed running back Zurlon Tipton.

The Colts lost Ahmad Bradshaw for the season with a wrist injury on Sunday. Indianapolis decided to promote running back Zurlon Tipton from their practice squad. He will provide the back up duties to the old veteran Frank Gore in the Colts back field. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Alex Carrington tore his quad tendon and will have surgery on Monday.

It has been a disappointing return for Carrington in Buffalo after his terrible season in St. Louis with the Rams. He had just amassed eight total tackles and zero sacks this season. The 27-year-old played for the Bills from 2010-13.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Colts placed RB Ahmad Bradshaw (wrist) on Injured Reserve, ending his season.

It was a real nice story for Bradshaw returning to the Colts and even scoring three touchdowns in just six games of work. He left in the fourth quarter of the Colts win over the Buccaneers. We will see if the Colts head back to the free agent market to find a veteran to back up Frank Gore or go back to Josh Robinson. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Amare Stoudemire (illness) will not play Monday against the Celtics.

Stoudemire has appeared in just two games this season for the Heat and that will continue on Monday night. The Heat are taking it very cautious with his health knowing his injury plagued past. If you are stashing him on your Fantasy Basketball bench, it might be time to just let it go. He is not worth a roster spot at the moment.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Chris Bosh (illness) missed Monday mornings shootaround. He is listed as questionable for Monday night.

The team will be short staffed on Monday night as Luol Deng and Amar'e Stoudemire have both been ruled out. Fantasy owners are hoping that Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra can get Bosh more involved in the offense averaging just 17.5 points and 9 rebounds on the season. We will have to wait until pre-game shoot around to find out if Bosh will play on Monday. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Luol Deng (hamstring) is officially listed as out for the Heat on Monday.

There was not much of a sweat as to whether or not Deng would play on Monday night but the Heat are hoping that he'll be able to return to the court on Thursday against the Thunder. This will be his third consecutive missed game. The hamstring is a tricky thing and it depends player to player how fast they can return. "My jump shot is fine. It's when I try to sprint, and I'm trying to just take off. That's when it's troubling me," Deng said. Gerald Green will start on Monday and should make for a nice daily fantasy value play. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Thabo Sefolosha will start on Monday for injured Tiago Splitter.

Sefolosha scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds on Saturday night against the Spurs. We are slowly seeing him regain his previous form and his value increases as he makes his way into the starting lineup. There is not too much upside here but minutes equal production in Fantasy Basketball.  Analysis: Drew Phelps

Before hiring Clay Helton USC reached out to Chip Kelly about a possible return to college football.

The rumors of Chip Kelly's return to the college game have been all over the place. We would not be surprised if more of these premiere jobs give him a call in the coming weeks. The situation in Philadelphia seems to get worse by the week and who knows one of these jobs might strike him as a better opportunity. Analysis: Drew Phelps

Quinton Dunbar suffered a dislocated finger on Sunday which required stitches after the bone came through his skin.

It's not clear as to whether or not this injury will hold him out of action, so expect to have to monitor the practice schedule this week. Consider him day-to-day for now as he might simply be able to play with a hard cast on his hand. Analysis: Howard Bender

Marc Anthony is now representing Aroldis Chapman.

In the spirit of Jay-Z, Anthony has taken his company, Magnus Media, and launche da sports division as a joint venture with veteran agents Barry Praver and Scott Shapiro, who will team with Magnus Media CEO Michel Vega to oversee the operations of the newly formed Magnus Sports. Praver and Shapiro have an extensive history working with Latino ballplayers and the expectation is that a number of them will follow the two to Anthony's group. This shouldn't have any effect on negotiations moving forward for the potentially soon-to-be-dealt Chapman. Analysis: Howard Bender

Martell Webster will be waived by the Wizards on Monday.

Webster had season-ending hip surgery back in early November and has a long recovery road to navigate over the next several months. The Wizards are simply going to part ways and wish him well and hope to find addition depth at wing now moving forward. Analysis: Howard Bender

Norris Cole (ankle) may return on Tuesday night.

Cole has yet to make an appearance this season, so while he may get a chance to play Tuesday, he will likely be under a serious minutes restriction. The Pelicans will ease him back in, so fantasy owners will just have to wait patiently. Analysis: Howard Bender
