His brother’s keeper Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next John Wall #2 of the Washington Wizards drives to the basket against Hassan Whiteside #21 of the Miami Heat in the second half at Capital One Arena on November 17, 2017 in Washington. Rob Carr/Getty Images/AFPWASHINGTON — Washington Wizards guard John Wall is expected to miss about two weeks with inflammation in his left knee, the team announced Saturday.Wall, 27, underwent an MRI, coach Scott Brooks revealed Friday following the day’s practice session, which the point guard missed. The four-time All-Star received platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections Saturday in Washington in the hope of reducing the inflammation that has caused discomfort for the past two weeks.ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohortcenter_img Dr. Richard D. Parker with the Cleveland Clinic Marymount was consulted about the injury. Parker performed a procedure in May 2016 to remove calcific deposits in Wall’s left patella tendon. Brooks said Wall’s current injury did not appear related to that procedure.Washington is 1-1 this season without Wall, who also missed a game because of a shoulder injury.“I’m fine with John missing two weeks if this is going to make him better,” center Marcin Gortat said Saturday. “Two weeks are not two months. We can cover for him for two weeks and then he’s going to come back stronger, better, healthy and then hopefully we can go from there. That said, he’s our leader.”Backup Tim Frazier replaces Wall in the starting lineup with Tomas Satoransky moving into the rotation. Acquired by Washington from New Orleans during the offseason, Frazier is averaging 3.2 points and 3.9 assists in 16.6 minutes. He has 42 career starts including two this season and 35 with the Pelicans during the 2016-17 campaign.“Next guy has to step up. That’s it,” said Frazier, who had eight assists in each of his two starts this season. “Obviously we can’t be John, an All-Star, our leader, our best player, but we just got to step up and be the best we can and get as many wins as possible.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC “We felt like this was the best thing,” Brooks said before the Wizards hosted the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday. “We figure this is the early part of the season, and we’re in no rush.

Wall, who averages 20.3 points and 9.2 assists, previously said fluid on his knee built up after he received IV fluids to deal with illness and migraines before the Wizards hosted Atlanta on Nov. 11.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutWall sat out Sunday’s 100-91 loss at Toronto, but returned to play his usual starting role in matchups against Milwaukee and Charlotte.

10 months agoThornley exclusive: Phelan perfect for Solskjaer at Man Utd

first_imgThornley exclusive: Phelan perfect for Solskjaer at Man Utdby Andrew Maclean10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLife as Manchester United manager has started well for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Two wins from two matches. 8 goals. Paul Pogba in fine form. A palpable excitement now reverberating through Old Trafford.A sizeable task lies ahead of Solskjaer to lead United into the top-four, but it is one that will be helped considerably by the presence of assistant manager Mike Phelan.That is according to former United winger Ben Thornley, who works as analyst for MUTV and has intimate knowledge of the club’s inner sanctum.Phelan has spent fourteen of his 23 years as a coach at United, five of which he served as Sir Alex Ferguson’s number two.It is a role the 56-year-old now fills for Solskjaer, who has two stints at Molde and an ill-fated spell at Cardiff City on his coaching resume.And Thornley thinks Phelan’s experience and coaching nous will greatly benefit the Norwegian in what will be the biggest six months of his management career to date.He told “I feel as though Mike Phelan is a guy that was at the club a long time before his departure and he worked as a coach under Sir Alex Ferguson. [He’s] a very, very trustworthy man, a very calming influence in the dressing room.”He’s not somebody who screams and shouts he knows the club inside and out and he’s a very knowledgeable coach. I think the club can only benefit from having somebody like Mike Phelan and his experience amongst the ranks.”Solskjaer will try and make it three wins from three when United host Bournemouth on Sunday afternoon. With Arsenal facing league leaders Liverpool, United could potentially close to gap to fifth place to just three points by the end of the weekend.

In fact, a sunlit galleria encircles the stadium enveloped by an elegant glass façade. The Cathedral has been designed to create a unique home for the fans and supporters with bespoke installations. The stadium is designed to be the most sustainable in Europe: the galleria is naturally cooled and passively heated, photovoltaic panels line the stadium roof, and all rainwater is collected from the roof and reused. The stadium is surrounded by 22 acres of green space, which reduce water runoff. TagsSerie A NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

After Jind episode, Khattar asks CEC if he can stay in poll-bound Chandigarh after campaign ends

first_imgChandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, who had to move the high court after election officials refused to grant him permission for overnight halt in Jind on Friday citing the model code of conduct, has now written to the Election Commission asking if he can stay in state capital Chandigarh when it goes to polls on May 19. Stranded due to bad weather, Khattar was allowed to stay at a guest house in Jind only after the Punjab and Haryana High Court conducted a late night hearing on a plea by his aide. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh Haryana’s Advocate General Baldev Raj Mahajan had said earlier that the Jind deputy commissioner, who is also the Returning Officer, had cited the model code of conduct while refusing permission to Khattar and reasoned that after the campaigning is over, ministers and MLAs cannot stay overnight in constituencies except where they are registered voters. Khattar is a registered voter in Karnal, from where he is an MLA. After the peculiar situation on Khattar’s stay on Friday, his additional principal secretary has now written to Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora seeking clarification on whether he can stay in Chandigarh after the campaigning ends there on Friday. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad The letter written on behalf of the chief minister mentioned the circumstances under which Khattar’s aide had to move the high court earlier on his behalf. . The letter of the law, if taken to its extreme, would mean that the chief executive of the state cannot stay anywhere in the state for any purpose during this period (when campaign ends till polls are held) except where he is a registered voter. This becomes even more piquant in the case of Haryana where the state capital does not fall within the limits of the state jurisdiction. “Thereby, the chief minister would also have to leave his official residence in the state capital in Chandigarh on May 17 evening as elections in UT Chandigarh is due on May 19 and the chief minister is not a registered voter in Union Territory, Khattar’s additional principal secretary wrote to the CEC. The chief minister would like to be advised by the Election Commission of India on the course of action that has to be followed given the circumstances as mentioned, he wrote seeking to know if Khattar can stay in Chandigarh when poll campaigning comes to a close in the UT on Friday. Chandigarh, which is the common capital of both Haryana and Punjab, goes to polls in the seventh and final phase on May 19. The chief minister, whose chopper could not take off for Chandigarh from Sirsa due to inclement weather on Friday evening, had decided to head to the state capital by road, but was stuck due to a dust storm. He then decided to make a night halt at a government guest house at Narwana in Jind, which lies in Sonepat constituency, but the Returning Officer orally informed an aide of the CM that he could not stay overnight there due to the poll code after which the court was approached.last_img read more
