Earlier reports say that Fizdale believed that Porzingis is not yet close to sprinting, to which the Latvian superstar answered through an Instagram Story post of a picture of him recently running around an oval.

New York Knicks coach David Fizdale and Kristaps Porzingis seem to have differing opinions on where the All-Star forward is in his rehab from an ACL injury in his left knee.

Garrett, the Cowboys coach, was asked one day after the game if he was considering replacing offensive coordinator Scott Linehan as the team's play-caller. The Cowboys are now averaging 317.1 yards per game (27th in NFL ). In Week 10, the Cowboys will face the 4-4 Eagles on Sunday night. At 3-5, the Cowboys are in danger of missing the playoffs once again but believe or not; they're still alive in the lowly NFC East division.
The Le'Veon Bell holdout saga continues. The money hungry running back has been teasing his return over the past 10 weeks of the season. Bell, 26, must report by 4 p.m. The Steelers had offered Bell a five-year, $70 million deal, with more than $30 million guaranteed that he turned down. Does a franchise tag count if a player does not sign nor show up? The upgrade to quarterback money nearly guarantees that the Steelers will not tag Bell and will either let him walk as an unrestricted free ...
Former champion Andy Murray, still making his way back from injury, and defending champion Grigor Dimitrov are other star names missing.

After dominating proceedings in the first half, Huddersfield were dealt a significant blow just before the interval when influential left wing-back Chris Löwe had to be replaced after sustaining a shoulder injury following a challenge from Fabian Balbuena.
Earlier in the day, South Africa won the toss and chose to field first. Reeza Hendricks's well-timed effort at mid-wicket to jump and grab a one-hander was inversely proportional to Stoinis's abject decision-making. Markram took a special liking to Starc, whom he hit for a six over wide long-on, coming down the track and flicking a good length delivery. They looked to be heading towards a narrow victory with du Plessis and David Miller at the crease in a partnership of 74 for the fifth ...
Sighting tennis stars like Federer and Djokovic is a rarity but some of the commuters of the London tube came across this opportunity suddenly and surely would not have complained. No man aside from Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and Andy Murray-and do not be surprised if he also bounces back from surgery with renewed vigour next season as well-have held the No1 ranking for nearly 15 years.
Both the batsmen enjoyed the rub of the green. The closing moments of the partnership were virtually a free-for-all, with 51 runs coming from the final 15 balls that du Plessis and Miller were together before the captain's dismissal. The left-hander, on 41, was struck in front by the off-spin of Glenn Maxwell and seemingly seemed convinced that going upstairs would be a wasteful exercise.
She posted a match-winning 134-run stand with Jemimah Rodrigues for the fourth wicket as India posted 194 runs in their 20 overs. "So it's better for me not to put pressure on myself and just enjoy the game", she said ahead of the second match in Guyana.
American Henry also owns the Boston Red Sox - winners of this year's World Series - and the New York Post are reporting that he is now "running a passive sales process" for Liverpool . Liverpool's owners have, however, said they would be open to selling a minority share of the club under the right circumstances.

Rashford also revealed that he found last season's derby at the Etihad "amazing" and lifted the lid on the side's determination not to be beaten. Paul Pogba produced an inspirational performance on their last trip to The Etihad as the World Cup winner's two goals cancelled out Manchester City's 2-0 half-time lead before Chris Smalling netted the victor.
The coach played down the switch, insisting it was merely a "change of order", but that won't stop Ashton enjoying walking out with the number 14 shirt on his back. Saracens hooker George came on for Dylan Hartley to help England to secure a 12-11 win against South Africa last week. Its only loss this year came in a 36-34 defeat against South Africa in Wellington, New Zealand in September, but as one of sport's most dominant winning machines, Hansen says the All Blacks are used ...
Just three days after flying into the United Arab Emirates from paternity leave, Boult became New Zealand's third hat-trick taker in one-day worldwide cricket to spark a 47-run victory over Pakistan in the first ODI. Sarfraz revisited the controversy in the post-match press conference and questioned Taylor's sportsmanship after the hosts' 47-run defeat.

Tsitsipas dropped the first set 2-4, but came from behind to win the next three sets 4-1 4-3 4-3. The finale itself was a match always likely to deliver. Munar scored three mini-breaks in the tie break to win it 7-5 after an ace, continuing where he left in the previous matches and setting the ground for another surprising win.
The insane part of this story is that authorities pulled Brown over for reckless driving at the same time that they were hunting for a bank robber nearby. Oddly enough, it appears Brown was actually pulled over because there was a bank robbery in the area. It remains to be seen if Steelers HC Mike Tomlin or any members of the Steelers' brass disciplines Brown before the game.
Signing Bruce Irvin improves Atlanta's ever-increasing playoff hopes helping fix the weakness of their team. Irvin was released by the Raiders last week as the team is going through a complete overhaul. One shouldn't really blame him.

Steph suffered the injury in Thursday night's loss to the surprising Milwaukee Bucks , when he tried to thwart Eric Bledsoe movement towards the basket.

Pittsburgh increased the margin to 14-3 on a 6-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown with 7:18 left in the half.

Sabathia's desire to stay in NY for what's expected to be his final season was apparent, as he turned down other opportunities to remain a Yankee , the source said.
