Graham Couch Lansing State Journal Published 2:33 PM EDT Oct 1, 2018 This is the second installment of a weekly Michigan State sports mailbag — real answers to your made-up questions about Spartan football, basketball and beyond. Here are questions you might want to ask or have answered: Q: Cody White breaks his hand Saturday. Josiah Scott is still out. It’s October. Should either or both of them be redshirted? — Hunter in Manhattan, Kansas A: Short answer: It should be considered, depending on their return dates. Understand that these are two different scenarios, both potentially taking advantage of a new rule that allows players to use a redshirt year if they see action in no more than four games and still have the redshirt year available. Both of them do, having each started last season as true freshmen. Scott, who MSU misses dearly at cornerback, is recovering from a torn meniscus, Dantonio revealed during his Sunday night teleconference.

The Bruins hope Rick Nash, Riley Nash and Sean Kuraly will be ready for Game 1 on Thursday. Seen Steven Stamkos? Is he healthy?The Eastern Conference No. 1 seed Tampa Bay Lightning sure hope so after Stamkos missed four of the last seven regular-season games with a nagging lower-body injury. After a torn meniscus in his right knee cost Stamkos several months and likely Tampa Bay a playoff spot last season, his status bears watching more than any other injured player going into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Stamkos was a full participant in practice Monday and said it’s “the hope” to be ready for Game 1 Thursday when the Lightning host the New Jersey Devils. “Definitely a step in the right direction,” Stamkos told reporters in Tampa. “Felt pretty good all things considered.” That’s a good sign for the Lightning, who got 100 points from Nikita Kucherov but count on Stamkos to be their top-line center and a big-time scorer on the power play. … [Read more...] about NHL playoffs: Injured players on the mend

Nets guard Caris LeVert sinks a layup against the Trail Blazers at Barclays Center on Nov. 24, 2017. Photo Credit: Kathleen Malone-Van Dyke Approaching the All-Star break, Nets coach Kenny Atkinson took stock of his beleaguered team that is mired in a 1-11 slump and said, “I do think these guys are fried a little bit mentally.” He could have added, physically, too. It’s not as bad as the horrid 1-27 stretch last season that carried just beyond the All-Star break, but there is an eerie similarity in that Atkinson is hoping the return from injury of starting power forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and backup point guard Caris LeVert will spark a rebirth much as the return of Jeremy Lin did last season. Here are five issues the Nets must confront in the final quarter and looking to the future: WILL WE SEE SOME PROGRESS? When Lin rejoined the starting lineup last season, the Nets went 10-11 before he missed the final game.

(Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post) On Thursday, the Washington Wizards dealt guard Sheldon Mac to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for a protected 2019 second-round pick.
