Kobe ‘is playing tonight’ against Memphis, Byron Scott says

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “I just put two numbers in a hat, I pull it,” Scott said, laughing, about how he determines which back-to-back games Nance will miss. “I pulled the number out today and it was one. That meant the first game.” Bryant missed six of the past 10 games because of a sore right shoulder. After sitting out games last week against Sacramento (Tuesday) and Phoenix (Friday), Bryant has had about eight days to rest and recover. So much that Bryant plans to fly with the Lakers to play in Wednesday’s game against Phoenix in what will mark his final trip there.“As of now,” Scott said, “that’s a good possibility.”Scott plans to play Bryant around 27-29 minutes tonight and will then assess his workload for tomorrow’s game based on how his body responds. Scott will be more cautious with rookie forward Larry Nance Jr, who will miss Tuesday’s game against Memphis as part of the teams’ effort to preserve his sore right knee on back-to-backs. But Nance will be available for Wednesday’s game in Phoenix.center_img No longer did Lakers coach Byron Scott feel the need to offer odds on whether Kobe Bryant will play when the Lakers (14-55) host the Memphis Grizzlies (40-30) on Tuesday at Staples Center.“He says he’s playing tonight,” Scott said.last_img read more

NASCAR announces ban of Confederate flag at events

first_imgpic.twitter.com/gJkIfVf3Ba— NASCAR (@NASCAR) June 10, 2020The statement in full:The presence of the confederate flag at NASCAR events runs contrary to our commitment to providing a welcoming and inclusive environment for all fans, our competitors and our industry. Bringing people together around a love for racing and the community that it creates is what makes our fans and sport special. The display of the confederate flag will be prohibited from all NASCAR events and properties.NASCAR’s decision to ban the flag also came less than 24 hours after driver Bubba Wallace made it clear that he vehemently opposes fans’ use of the flag at events. More than 150 years after the end of the American Civil War, the Confederacy is still taking losses.NASCAR announced on Wednesday that the organization is banning fans’ use of the Confederate flag at all future events. The decision comes on the heels of civil unrest around the United States and a day after the report that the organization was considering placing a permanent ban on the flag at its races. “My next step would be to get rid of all Confederate flags (at races),” Wallace said Monday night during an interview on CNN when asked about what NASCAR can do to battle racial injustice. “There should be no individual that is uncomfortable showing up to our events to have a good time with their family that feels some type of way about something they’ve seen, an object they have seen flying. “No one should feel uncomfortable when they come to a NASCAR race. So it starts with Confederate flags. Get them out of here. They have no place for them.”Wallace is set to drive the No. 43 car adorned with a “#BlackLivesMatter” paint job for Wednesday night’s race at Martinsville Speedway.NASCAR’s stance on banning the flag — notably associated with racism and prejudice — sent shockwaves through the sports world. Some fans on Twitter reacted adversly to the news.last_img read more
