Lakers are reportedly expecting to hire a new coach in the next week or two.
It is amazing how long it has taken the Lakers to hire a new head coach. Whoever they hire, will have their work cut out for them because the Lakers lost Pau Gasol and signed both Nick Young and Jordan Hill (who aren't good players) to multi year deals. It is basically Kobe Bryant and a bunch young, unproven players on the Lakers roster.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
