MESA, Ariz. — Andrelton Simmons was diagnosed with a strained left shoulder after undergoing an MRI exam on Thursday night, according to the Angels, who characterized Simmons as “day to day.”The news comes as a relief for the team after Simmons was hurt diving for a ball in Thursday afternoon’s game against the Oakland A’s. Simmons came out of the game with a trainer, but shortly after the game Manager Mike Scioscia said the team was optimistic.“I think as he came out of the game and left here, he gave us a feeling he’s fine,” Manager Mike Scioscia said before the MRI. “We’re definitely going to be cautious.”The Angels’ Gold Glove shortstop dove to his right and rolled over on his shoulder trying to get a ground ball in the fifth inning.

When the NBA shared its return plan and campus setup for the basketball “bubble” in Orlando, Fla., one minor element became a source of fascination for NBA Twitter: the anonymous tip hotline.The league has a system in place that allows NBA players to report potential rule violations, and apparently it is already working. On Tuesday, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that “multiple tips” have already been placed into the hotline ahead of the 2019-20 season restart. Multiple tips have been placed into the NBA’s anonymous hotline to report protocol violations on campus, sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 14, 2020Some players have received warnings from violations, sources said, as league ensures social distancing and mask protocols on campus. https://t.co/LSRX6cXWfP— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 14, 2020MORE: Kings player banished to quarantine in Orlando for food orderObviously if players fail to follow health and safety protocols, the NBA’s return is unlikely to last long. It makes sense that the league would do everything possible to avoid another suspension of play.However, some players view the tip hotline as more of a “snitch hotline.” Nets guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who won’t be joining his teammates in Orlando after testing positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), went so far as to encourage players inside the “bubble” to hang up their hotel phones.”To all my fellow NBA players, don’t call the snitch hotline,” Dinwiddie told Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks.Asked Spencer Dinwiddie if he had a message for guys that are IN the bubble.I’m just gonna leave this here. I was not expecting him to say this. Lol pic.twitter.com/1xfbKVh3RW— Taylor Rooks (@TaylorRooks) July 14, 2020But the league office shouldn’t be concerned. NBA Twitter is confident All-Star guard Chris Paul will report all violations as quickly as possible. Shortly after Charania’s report hit social media, Twitter users identified the Thunder guard as the primary caller.hm … I wonder who it could be … https://t.co/CwSp0cGUnd pic.twitter.com/nRCwycLwsW— #RingerNBA (@ringernba) July 14, 2020“Yep, Buena Vista drive.

No, probably not. However, this is a man who figured out a way to manufacture points at the end of game via an obscure rule about properly wearing a jersey. His search for a competitive advantage never ends.So, yeah, NBA players should be on their best behavior — because you never know when Paul will be watching.
Susan Kamara, who gave birth to her only child at the young age of 15, is committing the most hardhearted act: she is refusing to take care of her baby.Susan says she is unaware where the father of her 9-month-old son is and that’s because he was driven away when Susan’s pregnancy came to light.“My community ran his father away because they said he had raped me, but since he left, the same community people have turned their backs on me and this baby,” she added.Never acknowledging the child by name, nor holding him when he is in need of care, Susan says it’s not her duty to care for a child whose father has been chased away.“I don’t have any feeling for the child, at least not now. When I was pregnant with him, I did a lot of singing to him because I liked him deeply then. I guess now I realize that life is hard already and now I have to take care of a child too,” she added.According to relatives living in the yard, whenever Susan’s child Anthony moans with hunger and is given food by family members, Susan throws a fit of anger.“She doesn’t want anyone helping her with this baby and it’s sorrowful. Everyday we all want to take the child and hide him from his mother, but Susan can’t give us a chance,” lamented Ma Dabbah, the child’s aunt.Our reporter saw Anthony sitting stiffly on the ground in silence in front of an apparently empty house. He seemed hungry. When asked where the child spends his entire day, his mother says he sits on the ground in the same spot everyday, crying.“He was a sickly child and is unable to crawl or anything like that now. Plus, I took him off breast milk when he was 5 months old. I just don’t want to waste my time. I already told my people they can have the baby, but they shouldn’t carry him away. He should always be where I can see him,” Susan added.Dressed in a skirt that was too small and wearing a shirt that exposed her breast cleavage, Susan says she knows that she is not a good mother because she’s not ready to take care of children.“For now, I have no (other) children. I’m only letting him stay here because I know maybe one day his father will come back and he needs to know that his son is still alive. I don’t care what people are saying behind me, but none of them are helping me. So, let the boy sit down there. He’ll be able to walk away one day,” she added.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
