UPDATES & NEWS
Update: Giants rookie WR Odell Beckham Jr. is getting closer to returning to practice. He will take some throws from a quarterback Wednesday to test his sore hamstring.
The Giants pushed him more today but didn't want to risk re-tweaking the already sore hamstring. He did not get any time in the preseason scrimmages and we would say it's unlikely we'll see him in Giants 2nd preseason game on Saturday against the Steelers.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
