Warriors coach Steve Kerr (back pain) will not coach Game 4

Apr 23 6:26pm ABC News: Sports
Ailing Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr says he won't be on the sidelines for Game 4 on Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers. The reigning NBA coach of the year still experiences lingering symptoms from complications following two back surgeries after the franchise's run to the 2015 championship. He missed the first 43 games last season dealing with symptoms such as headaches, nausea and an aching neck. "This past week for whatever reason, things got worse, and my symptoms got worse," Kerr said Sunday.? Kerr stayed behind at the team hotel for Saturday night's Game 3 at Portland's Moda Center. Assistant Mike Brown took over and the Warriors overcame a 17-point first-half deficit to win 119-113 and go up 3-0 in the first-round series. Golden State can sweep with a victory Monday night. Kerr, who clearly wasn't feeling well on Friday before the team departed for Portland, hadn't missed a game this season before Saturday, when he also missed...

Caleb Brantley charged with battery after allegedly punching woman

Apr 23 6:26pm ABC News: Sports
Former Florida?defensive tackle? Caleb Brantley, who is considered a potential first- or second-round pick in this week's NFL draft, was charged on Friday with misdemeanor simple battery after he allegedly struck a woman and knocked her unconscious during a dispute earlier this month. According to a sworn complaint obtained by ESPN from the Alachua County Clerk of Court in Gainesville, Florida, a woman told police that the 6-foot-2, 307-pound Brantley made crude comments toward her during an argument at a bar on April 13, and she then pushed him. The complaint said Brantley responded by "striking [her] in the face knocking her unconscious." The complaint said the woman, who is 5-foot-6 and 120 pounds, suffered dental injuries that "displaced a tooth and will require a root canal." The complaint also said Brantley's "use of force was clearly out of retaliation and not self-defense. Additionally, the intensity of [his] force far exceeded what was reasonable...

Boston's Matt Barnes ejected after pitch sails behind Manny Machado

Apr 23 5:06pm ABC News: Sports
Boston Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes was ejected in the eighth inning Sunday when his pitch sailed past the head of? Baltimore Orioles?third baseman Manny Machado. Machado had spiked Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia on Friday night sliding into second base. Umpires initially ruled that the Barnes pitch hit Machado and sent him to first base, even though the ball hit Machado's bat. But after Red Sox manager John Farrell argued with umpires, the umps huddled and decided the ball did not graze Machado's helmet and ruled it a foul ball. Machado grabbed a bat and waited for Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly to get warmed up before stepping back into the box with an 0-1 count. On the first pitch from Kelly, Machado drove a triple to center field that scored Adam Jones and cut Boston's lead to 6-1. Pedroia was out of the Red Sox's lineup for a second consecutive game Sunday after being taken out by the hard, spikes-high slide by...

Mariners' Leonys Martin designated for assignment two days after benching

Apr 23 4:26pm ABC News: Sports
Struggling center fielder Leonys Martin was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Sunday, two days after he was benched by the team. In a corresponding move, the Mariners recalled first baseman Dan Vogelbach from Triple-A Tacoma. He is expected to platoon at first base with Danny Valencia going forward. Valencia, 32, has struggled as the full-time first baseman. After he went hitless Saturday, he had a .145 average. The right-handed-hitting veteran has no home runs and four RBIs in 69 plate appearances. The left-handed-hitting Vogelbach, 24, was hitting .309 with two home runs and 14 RBIs in 66 plate appearances for Tacoma. In another move, the Mariners sent right-handed reliever Chase De Jong to Tacoma and recalled right-handed reliever Chris Heston in his place. The left-handed-hitting Martin has struggled this season, hitting .111 with no home runs or RBIs in 58 plate appearances. ...

Warren Sapp doesn't think Myles Garrett is deserving of No. 1 pick

Apr 23 3:36pm ABC News: Sports
As the NFL draft approaches this week, Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp is struggling to understand why Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett is poised to be the No. 1 pick. "I don't see it from this kid," Sapp said Sunday about Garrett. "I see the splash plays; everybody gets those. Where's the game he took over? Where? Any defensive lineman who's the No. 1 pick, you turn up and you say, 'There it is!' This kid, no, I don't. I'm a pretty plain and frank guy, and I watch the tape and he disappears. I watch the tape, and he absolutely disappears." Still, Garrett is considered the favorite to go No. 1 to the? Cleveland Browns, who used the No. 1 overall pick in the 2000 draft on Penn State defensive end Courtney Brown. "I don't think this kid is as good as Courtney Brown either," Sapp said. Sapp said he believes teams have fallen for Garrett for one reason only. "It's all about measurable," he said. "Once you...

Ailing Steve Kerr plans to attend Warriors workout, sources say

Apr 23 3:26pm ABC News: Sports
Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who missed Game 3 because he was ill, felt well enough to watch film with his assistants Sunday morning and planned to attend at least some the team's voluntary workout later Sunday, a source tells ESPN's Ramona Shelburne. Kerr's absence, and the lack of details about his condition, prompted speculation about his condition Saturday. Sources told ESPN Sunday that Kerr is suffering from head and neck pain, but can walk and there are no problems with his back or legs. Sources told ESPN that Kerr felt well enough Saturday to address his team, though he did not attend the pregame shootaround. Sources also said he needed to have fluids replenished Saturday after staying behind at the hotel while the Warriors rallied to beat the Blazers 119-113 and took a 3-0 series lead over the Portland Trail Blazers. Kerr had back surgery in July 2015 that caused a fluid leak in his spine. He missed 43 games at the start of the 2015-16 season...

Tigers' CF JaCoby Jones needs 9 stitches on lip after being hit in face Saturday

Apr 23 2:56pm ABC News: Sports
Detroit Tigers center fielder JaCoby Jones required nine stitches to repair a cut on his lip after he was hit in the face by a fastball Saturday, but he didn't lose any teeth and feels "lucky" he didn't get hurt worse. "My teeth still hurt, but they said everything was intact and they were still there," Jones told reporters, according to "I still have to get a CT scan when I get back to Detroit. Everything feels normal. I can bite down. It's just my lip. [My] teeth are sore, but other than that, it just feels like I got punched in the face. "It could've knocked out all my teeth or struck me square in the eye. I am lucky it hit me in my big lip and just made it bigger. It's all good." Jones left in the third inning against Minnesota on Saturday when he was drilled in the left side of his mouth by a 90 mph fastball from Twins reliever Justin Haley. Jones went down but then sprang to his feet, tossed his helmet away and...

Rajon Rondo fined $25,000 for trying to trip Jae Crowder

Apr 23 1:16pm ABC News: Sports
Chicago Bulls point guard Rajon Rondo was fined $25,000 for sticking out his leg from the bench in an attempt to trip Boston Celtics forward Jae Crowder on Friday. Rondo was on the bench after suffering a right thumb fracture in Game 2. The Bulls are up 2-1 in the series; Game 4 is Sunday night, and Rondo says he will be out a "couple weeks." NBA vice president of basketball operations Kiki VanDeWeghe announced the fine. Rondo said after the game Friday that he was not trying to trip the Celtics player. "When you tear an ACL, your legs get stiff on you every once in a while," Rondo said. "I stretched my leg out. I also do that throughout the game. I guess he was so deep into our bench, it looked maybe whatever may have happened." Celtics swingman Gerald Green said Saturday that he might believe Rondo's stretching excuse. "He may have had to stretch his leg out. I don't know," Green said. "I ain't...
