We know now, thanks to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, that Spurs doctors have medically cleared Kawhi Leonard to return from the quad injury that has kept him out all but nine games this season.

Alexandre Lacazette Is Injured And Arsenal Might Be Screwed Alexandre Lacazette Is Injured And Arsenal Might Be Screwed

Arsenal came into this past weekend’s must-win North London Derby and proceeded to get comprehensively smashed up by their fiercest rivals in a manner that would’ve cratered the Gunners’ confidence if not for the fact that it’s been evident for so long now that Tottenham are simply a much better team. Still, it was a…

Old Geezer Dirk Nowitzki Dunked Himself Onto The Injured List Old Geezer Dirk Nowitzki Dunked Himself Onto The Injured List

Old, old man Dirk Nowitzki had himself a bit of a throwback game against the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday night.

A Tearful Dustin Brown Retires From Match After Back Injury 

Germany’s Dustin Brown, the wackiest motherfucker in tennis, was only three points away from winning his first-round match at Montpellier against Nicolas Mahut when a crafty one-handed, backhand passing shot appeared to cause his back to seize up. He took a few steps and then collapsed. Mahut didn’t go full Grigor and…

This Short Film Is A Good Argument Against Football This Short Film Is A Good Argument Against Football

This NFL season has had its share of highlights, like when Titans QB Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to himself or Eagles kicker Jake Elliott nailed a 61-yard, game-winning field goal at the buzzer, but I think I’ll remember those as much, if not less, as I will Texans QB Tom Savage twitching on the ground, or…

For Horrific Injuries, The Image Is The Story For Horrific Injuries, The Image Is The Story

Suns guard Isaiah Canaan suffered an ankle injury in Wednesday’s game against the Mavericks, but “ankle injury” is putting it lightly. That it was immediately described with the words “Gordon Hayward-like” might provide a clue to the severity, or maybe it’s the image in which the heel of Canaan’s foot is visible…

Isaiah Canaan Goes Down With Gruesome Leg Injury Isaiah Canaan Goes Down With Gruesome Leg Injury

Suns guard Isaiah Canaan left tonight’s game against the Mavericks after suffering a brutal leg injury while driving to the basket.

Add Andre Roberson To The List Of Important NBA Players Lost To Season-Ending Injuries Add Andre Roberson To The List Of Important NBA Players Lost To Season-Ending Injuries

Andre Roberson takes a lot of shit for being among the worst non-center shooters in the NBA, and for how that lack of shooting has, in the past, badly cramped the spacing for certain Oklahoma City Thunder lineups. Those inclined towards giving him shit will be relieved, then, to learn that he will be out for the…

Mike Conley And The Grizzlies Are Done For The Season Mike Conley And The Grizzlies Are Done For The Season

Injuries are chewing up this NBA season. Mike Conley, of the Memphis Grizzlies, played in just 12 games before heel and achilles pain put him out of action, and all but ended any hope of the Grizzlies continuing their seven-year streak of making the playoffs in the loaded West. Saturday Conley was officially ruled out…

DeMarcus Cousins's Injury Fucking Blows DeMarcus Cousins's Injury Fucking Blows

Last season, the trade of DeMarcus Cousins from Sacramento to New Orleans realigned the league just in time to lend some shape to the NBA’s annual trade deadline; the feelings of Sacramento Kings fans notwithstanding, that was a vastly happier way for Cousins to find himself functioning as the starting gun for NBA…
