first_imgSecond-year guard D’Angelo Russell (sore left knee) and third-year guard Jordan Clarkson (left knee contusion) are listed as questionable for Friday’s game against Sacramento.While Russell participated in parts of Thursday’s practice, Clarkson sat out entirely. Rookie forward Brandon Ingram (tendinitis in right knee) is listed as probable but would be on a minutes restriction after having limited participation in Thursday’s practice.Staff shufflingAfter working in the front office for the past 16 years, Lakers assistant general manager Glenn Carraro resigned from his position on Thursday. Although the Lakers noted Carraro wants to “pursue other opportunities,” his resignation coincides with the organization making front office changes earlier this season.Carraro had worked as an assistant GM for the past five years under longtime Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak, who was fired on Feb. 21. The Lakers did not indicate who would replace Carraro. …Lakers player development coach Theo Robertson will become an assistant coach with the University of California men’s basketball team after the 2016-17 season ends next week. Robertson had also coached the last game of the Lakers’ 2016 summer league team in Las Vegas. Instead of unwinding on an overnight flight, Lakers guard David Nwaba spent his Wednesday night still on the clock.Following the Lakers’ victory in San Antonio on Wednesday, Nwaba and D-Fenders general manager Nick Mazzella made the 3½-hour drive to Hildalgo, Texas for Game 1 of the D-Fenders’ playoff series against Rio Grande Valley on Thursday.“I’m excited to get an opportunity to get a ring,” Nwaba said after playing for the Lakers’ Development League affiliate for most of the 2016-17 season. “I feel like they can use me during the playoffs and help them win a championship. It’s nice to hear that they miss me on the team.”It does not appear Nwaba will rest anytime soon.

After playing with the Lakers against Minnesota on Sunday, Nwaba needs to be available to return to Hidalgo for a possible Game 3. If that scenario happens, Nwaba could play as many as eight games on consecutive days. That’s because the Lakers also play against New Orleans on Tuesday at Staples Center and then on Wednesday night at Golden State.“I’m a young guy,” the 24-year-old Nwaba said. “I don’t think it will faze me.”Nwaba, an undrafted guard who starred at University High of Los Angeles and Cal Poly (San Luis Obispo), has averaged 5.6 points on 56.5 percent shooting and 3.2 rebounds in 19.1 minutes through 18 appearances with the Lakers. He originally signed a pair of 10-day contracts with the team in February, before being picked up for the rest of the regular season. Lakers coach Luke Walton has often praised Nwaba’s defensive intensity, a staple he hopes eventually influences his teammates.“He’s blowing plays up on defense,” Walton said. “Guys on our team really start to enjoy watching him do it. They enjoy playing on his unit. I think he’s done a fine job since he’s been here.”Injury updatecenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

first_img“I used to attend the fireworks every year with a few ofmy girlfriends when I was a kid,” said Alexandra Hough,Red Bank. Holidays and celebrations have had a different look in 2020. Graduations have been relegated to virtual ceremonies, birthdays to drive-by parades and Memorial Day to small backyard gatherings with socially distanced guests. The traditional spectacular fireworks over the Navesink River will once again be on display Friday, July 3. But to safeguard supporters, it will be celebrated without the accompanying family event. So it’s no surprise that the annual 4th of July Family Fireworks on the Navesink River will be a little different this year, too. “Riverview Medical Center has invested an extraordinary amount of funds to acquire ventilators, disinfecting machines, temporary tenting and personal protective equipment (PPE) to fight COVID-19 and to prepare for any potential resurgences making community support more important than ever.” “This community has been through a lot this year,” said Domenic DiPiero, former chairman of the Riverview Medical Center Foundation and current Hackensack Meridian Health trustee. He and wife Hilary DiPiero, Riverview Medical Center Foundation trustee, have been hosting the family fireworks event at their home on the Navesink, which featured food, rides and games and raised critical funds for the medical center. Last year, the event raised more than $250,000. “Fireworks on the Navesink River are a time-honored tradition and while we are not able to gather in person, we are thrilled to be able to put them on for the community as a way to express our gratitude for the heroes among us, while raising money for a great cause,” said Robert C. Garrett, chief executive officer, Hackensack Meridian Health. The expense of the display was generously underwritten by the Riverview Medical Center Foundation Board of Trustees.  EDUARDO PINZON Fireworks will once again light up the skies over the Navesink River July 3. Hackensack Meridian Riverview Medical Center will present the pyrotechnic display dedicated to the community’s frontline workers, including health care and other essential workers. This year the fireworks, scheduled to go off between 9:15 and 9:30 p.m., will be dedicated to the community’s frontline workers, including health care heroes and other essential personnel. “The hard work of the staff and health care professionals at Riverview Medical Center has always been important to and appreciated by the community,” he said. “So it seems a fitting tribute for this year’s display be dedicated to them. And we’re happy everyone can enjoy the fireworks.” The fireworks will be launched from a barge in front of the DiPiero’s dock. Fireworks Display is Dedicated to Frontline Heroes The fireworks are traditionally visible along the Navesink River in the section nearest the Oceanic Bridge. Hackensack Meridian Health encourages all individuals gathering to watch fireworks at any location throughout New Jersey to practice safe social distancing and masking. All donations made will support the ongoing efforts at Riverview Medical Center to care for patients during this crisis and beyond. Gifts are 100 percent tax deductible and can be made at HackensackMeridianHealth.org/RMCFireworks, by calling 201-317-5397 or emailing [email protected] “We’d usually attend some barbecue beforehand and make our way onto the bridge to get a good view. I remember when we first learned they were being discontinued how upset we were about it. It’s nice to hear that they’ll be back this year. Even better is that they’re being held for a good cause.” The article originally appeared in the June 25 – July 1, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

first_imgThe line of Beau Taylor, Connor McLaughlin and Scott Swiston did much of the damage for the Saints Saturday, combining for five goals and 11 points to spark the Saints to a convincing 10-1 shellacking in Cheney, Wash.Friday, the Saints staked the Eagles to a 1-0 lead before roaring back to score seven straight to score a 7-1 victory in Castlegar.”We played a full 60 minute effort (Saturday) and it seemed like everything was working offensively,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”Beau Taylor went through a streak back in the fall where nothing was bouncing for him, but he’s been one of our best players so far in 2014. He along with Connor and Scott set the tone this weekend and everyone else jumped on board.” McLaughlin and Darnell Dyck — on a power-play — put Selkirk ahead by two by the end of the first period and the Saints piled on with four more from Taylor, Swiston, Cody Fidgett and Colin Minardi in the second. JR Strait scored Eastern’s lone goal on one of their eight opportunities with the man-advantage, but Selkirk continued to find the back of the net as the game wore on. Taylor completed his hat trick with back-to-back goals early in the third period before Markus McCrea and Thomas Hardy scored late. Saints captain Logan Proulx extended his season-long point streak to 17 games when he set up Taylor shorthanded with 13:29 remaining in the game. Chris Hurry picked up his second straight win in goal, turning aside 18 shots. Derek Moser and BJ Leach split time in the loss. “Chris has been outstanding over the past couple weekends,” said Dubois.”We haven’t been giving up a ton of shots, but he’ll go a few minutes without much action and then make a big save when we need him to. He’s made some great strides and really captured the confidence of his teammates.” Friday goal scorers included Colin Minardi, Connor McLaughlin, Stefan Gonzales, Beau Taylor, Scott Swiston, Logan Proulx and Connor Stephens. The Saints’ record now sits at 13-3-1, which puts the team one point back of first place SFU. Selkirk is off next weekend before hosting the University of Victoria on Saturday, February 8th at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. The Selkirk College Saints rang up 17 goals on Eastern Washington netminders en route to a sweep of two B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League games.last_img read more
