Rather, Erskine will "begin an intensive rehab program within the next few weeks."
I'm still laughing that CLE has won the No. 1 pick 4 times in past 11 years & reportedly voted for lottery reform. Pay it forward, I guess
Robert Griffin III will speak with reporters on Friday. It will be the first time the team has allowed the QB to speak since the injury.
Adam Silver confirmed that teams voted 17-13 on lottery reform proposal. NBA needed 23 votes for approval. Will be sent back to committee
Silver said he feels some teams face "unfair pressure" from fans & media to underperform because of the current lottery structure
Adam Silver said roughly one-third of the league is not profitable under current system but expects new TV deal to help change that
Adam Silver said there is "a corrosive perception" that the incentive to lose to get a top pick outweighs desire to be competitive
Colt McCoy at the podium: http://t.co/ti4pCKcpX8
Gruden said he wants to know, ideally, tomorrow if Griffin is healthy enough to play. He wants the team to know who the QB will be.
Gruden said he will not take Griffin's injury history into account when he's cleared. If athletic training staff clears Griffin, he's going.
Gruden called Griffin a "wild card" for Monday.
Gruden on Griffin: "If we have to wait another week, or wait another two weeks, then so be it. But that will not be my call initially."
Gruden: Doctors have to clear Griffin, he has to have a few good days of practice, he has to remain healthy (no swelling).
Gruden: It's not so much about Griffin's ankle, but more his ability to handle the live game situation on that ankle.
McCoy, "as of right now," is still starting Monday.
Gruden said Cousins and McCoy all did first-, second- and third-team work today.
Gruden: Griffin did team drills today. "He looked good."
Cast off, be back in no time !!!
Go get shawty @dejloaf new mixtape
Paul Pierce said he isn’t playing tonight.
Griffin did that all of last week, too. Ergo, nothing new.
Robert Griffin III, as well as the other QBs, throwing to receivers in one-on-ones.
Someone just offered me Julius, Demaryius and Alf for Forte, Ellington and Ertz, and now my brain hurts pondering this.
I wonder if lottery reform happens IF changes took place a few yrs out rather than immediately. Seemed unfair to those now in lottery mode.
Keenan Robinson has a clunky-looking brace on his left elbow.
This is the only kind of Sixers win that doesn't end with Hinkie quietly seething
Given how the Wizards rebuilt their team, they should have voted against lottery reform. Glad they did.
Ben Bradlee's obit is most popular story on WaPo homepage - as it should be - but other most read articles are about Renee Zellweger's face
In every other sport but NBA, worst team gets top choice. NBA removed that incentive by creating lottery after HOU tanked to get Olajuwon
Thank God for all of His blessings and for allowing us to see another day !!
Records past 10 lottery winners: 9th-worst, 3rd-worst, 3rd-worst,8th-worst, 5th-worst, 2nd-worst, 9-worst, 6th-worst, 5th-worst, 6th-worst
Here's the problem with lottery reform: Tanking hardly ever works. Team with worst record hasn't won No. 1 pick since 2004. What's broken?
Hey, look, it's Marlins Man & Tech N9ne: http://t.co/8WWwTpFtjM
Bill Murray dropped a "Bethesda, Maryland" mention on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Odd thing: He was imagining a flight destination.
Okay, the loss stinks but at least the Royals didn't get shut out. And oh yeah, somebody finally scored on Mad Bumgarner!
So, looking ahead to Game 2...
Advanced stat (barring a comeback): Ned Yost 0-1 after winning eight straight postseason games.
I cared more about KC's pitchers more than normal in '14. Shields, Duffy, Guthrie, Holland on my AL-only fantasy team. Duffy is legit.
Dang, Bumgarner's a beast.
I want the story on the Marlins fan sitting behind home plate near TechN9ne
Shoutout to the guy in a Miami Marlins jersey and crooked visor behind home plate in Kansas City.
Add me on snapchat kslife13
Reggie Jackson convinced me to download Adele's first album.
No word yet on whether Everette Brown was at his Tropical Smoothie Cafe franchise in Charlotte when he got the call like last time.
On our way to New York :)
Wall said he’s playing tmrw. Tendinitis last night was in left knee. He said he could’ve played through it, but not worth it in preseason.
