Though his season was cut short due to a torn left Achilles, New Orleans Pelicans big man DeMarcus Cousins managed to pull off a feat only achieved by one other player in National Basketball Association history. But late this season, he shaved his beard, joined the starting lineup and he's been thriving ever since, scoring no fewer than 21 points in a game during the Pelicans' season-ending five-game winning streak.
The Thunder responded shortly after his comments went viral. "While unintentional, I understand and acknowledge the gravity of the situation", he said. "I offer my honest apology". "This is an appropriate outcome for my actions", Davis concluded. The suspension might come as somewhat of a surprise since the Thunder's VP of broadcasting, Dan Mahoney, did not initially seem all that upset by the incident, saying it was "up to Brian" to make any public statements.
Ricciardo had been running fifth mid-race when the safety auto was brought out to clear up debris following a clash between the Toro Rosso drivers Pierre Gasly and Brendon Hartley . Verstappen, who was criticised last weekend for a move on Lewis Hamilton , would ultimately come to harm again though with some rash overtaking attempts - taking to the grass after a move on Lewis Hamilton didn't pull off, he then hit championship leader Sebastian Vettel , dropping him further down the field ...
Two weeks ago, the Englishman clinched a dramatic play-off win at the Houston Open, which earned him a spot in the field for last weekend's Masters. "Still standing - that's a good thing", Poulter said after his bogey-free round at Hilton Head - his sixth PGA Tour event in as many weeks.

The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Golden State.

Goalkeeper: David De Gea produced another excellent performance during the win at Man City last weekend and he's certain to keep his place between the sticks with Sergio Romero out with a knee injury.

The dominant start was deservedly rewarded with a 22nd-minute lead and it was not out of the usual Manchester City playbook.

The Mets said their doctors estimate Plawecki will be sidelined three to four weeks. Tomas Nido is now the only backstop on the Mets' 25-man roster with d'Arnaud and Plawecki sidelined.

The answer is, if you want what I call dry answers, we have dry answers. It would be unbelievable, also economically for the football clubs to have only 11 players and to always play with the same 11 and no injuries and no suspensions and no fatigue and nothing, it'd be better for everyone to have only 11 players.
Kane has claimed the Golden Boot in each of the last two seasons, but following an ankle injury which kept him out for three weeks, he faces a struggle to overtake Salah with just six games to go. Manchester City will win a third Premier League title if they beat both Spurs and then Swansea City at home on April 22, but their skipper wants them to do it in the same style they have exhibited all season, starting at Wembley.
Kane and Sane are also in the running for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, as are Ederson , Raheem Sterling , Marcus Rashford and Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham . De Bruyne and Silva have, literally, been central to City rise to the Premier League summit this season. Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea completes the shortlist.
Golden Knights enforcer Ryan Reaves, who was a healthy scratch for Game 1, didn't agree with the hit. Losing him for a full game when Jake Muzzin is already out as well is very tough.
