More Rumors in this Storyline

Orlando Magic head coach Jamahl Mosley said rookie Jalen Suggs is doing OK after suffering an Achilles injury that forced him to leave early in Tuesday’s win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Suggs, who started the contest, appeared to suffer the injury early in the first quarter when he was fouled on a layup attempt by Jusuf Nurkic. He checked out of the game shortly after that sequence but eventually returned to play the final 2:22 of the period.

Joining Suggs at practice on Tuesday was Magic point guard Markelle Fultz, who continues to hit milestones in his rehab process from a devastating ACL injury in his left knee. Although Fultz’s return is not considered imminent, Suggs could potentially play as soon as the backend of the Magic’s upcoming road trip, depending on how he responds to practice sessions. How his thumb responds to constantly catching, handling, and shooting the ball will factor into the speed of his return.

Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't rule out playing for the Bulls in the future

Fox 32 Chicago Sports: Giannis on playing for the #Bulls someday tonight on The Sports Zone on Fox 32 Chicago. @fox32news @foxkickoff @LouCanellis @CassieCarlsonTV @Giannis_An34

“I think anyone asked that question who plays basketball, if he said no, he’d be a liar. It’s a team that won multiple championships, a team with one of the greatest players, if not the greatest player to ever play this game. It’s a no-brainer, everybody would love to play for Chicago. Down the line, you never know. You never know how life brings it. Maybe I play for Chicago,” Antetokounmpo said. “But right now, I’m committed to Milwaukee.”

Lakers to open season vs. Warriors

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue is unbeaten in seven games against the Lakers since taking over two seasons ago, while it will be Lakers coach Darvin Ham’s first meeting of arena tenants since his hiring in May. The game will be the Clippers’ season opener, while the Lakers will open two days earlier, on Oct. 18, at defending champion Golden State, according to a person with knowledge of the schedule.
On Sunday, Durant sent a tweet hinting that he’s going to delete his account on the platform amid the talks that it is ruining his legacy. However, he has since deleted the post. What’s interesting is Kevin Durant sent it out after people kept criticizing him for being the culprit in the current state of the player empowerment era in the NBA. A lot of players seem to be abusing that power to get out of situations they don’t like despite signing their contracts and teams paying them tons of money.
