Coco Out

We start off in baseball, where Oakland A's left fielder Coco Crisp may have done himself a mischief. The Athletics star was taken out of the sides game on Tuesday with a neck injury, which could well be worse than first thought.

Crisp was hurt after landing hard trying to make a diving catch off Houston outfielder Colby Rasmus' double. He sat out Wednesday's game and is not expected to play during a four-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays starting on Thursday.

According to a report from Sports Illustrated, multiple media reports state that Crisp is set to meet up with neck specialists and his season may well be in jeopardy. Hopefully it's not that serious.

Over to the NBA now, where the Golden State Warriors have opened up a 2-0 series lead against the Houston Rockets. The Warriors won at the Oracle Arena by a single point, with James Harden losing the ball when he had the opportunity to hit a game-winning bucket in the final few seconds.

To the NHL, where the Anaheim Ducks beat the Chicago Blackhawks last night to take a 2-1 lead in their playoff series. Patrick Maroon opened the scoring for Anaheim before Patrick Kane equalised, with Simon Despres scoring his first ever playoff goal to get the Ducks a 2-1 win.
