Golden State Warriors’ Andre Iguodala, David West, Jordan Bell out with injuries

Published

on

Golden State Warriors reserves Andre Iguodala (wrist), David West (arm) and Jordan Bell (ankle) are all dealing with various injuries that have sidelined the three players Thursday against San Antonio.

Iguodala is out with a left wrist sprain that he suffered against Brooklyn. He’s listed as questionable for Friday’s game in Portland.

West’s injury is more complicated as the 37-year-old is dealing with a right arm cyst, which Steve Kerr says is being evaluated from multiple doctors. Kerr doesn’t believe it will keep him out of the lineup long and hopes it’s “resolved in the next few days.” This will be the second straight game West has missed and his status for Friday remains unclear.

Bell exited the Warriors’ last matchup with a sprained right ankle and will be out at least three games. The rookie out of Oregon will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. Golden State has also been without second-year guard Patrick McCaw, who suffered a left wrist fracture last month.

Report: Furkan Korkmaz returning to 76ers

Published

Free agent forward Furkan Korkmaz has agreed to a two-year contract to return to the Philadelphia 76ers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Free agent forward Furkan Korkmaz has agreed to a two-year contract to return to the Philadelphia 76ers, agent Mike Lindeman of Excel Sports tells ESPN.

Korkmaz, 21, brings back a rotational forward with the ability to spread the floor with his shooting. The loss of JJ Redick in free agency – and Kyle Korver’s decision to choose Milwaukee over Philadelphia – brought some increased urgency to keep Korkmaz on the Sixers roster.

 The 21-year-old Korkmaz, who was the 26th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, averaged 5.8 points and 2.2 rebounds in 14.1 minutes last season.

Report: Kevin Love to withdraw from World Cup

Published

on

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love is the latest player expected to withdraw from Team USA’s training camp for the FIBA World Cup, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

This news comes just one day after Damian Lillard reportedly withdrew from the World Cup. Love, who played in just 22 games last season because of a shoulder injury, averaged 17.0 points and 10.9 rebounds in 2018-19.

During the previous two weeks, James Harden, Anthony Davis, Eric Gordon, Zion Williamson and CJ McCollum reportedly decided not to compete in the World Cup this year.

Although the guard ranks will be somewhat depleted of NBA stars, Team USA continues to have a deep pool of players available.
