First we begin in the NFL, and Le'Veon Bell has offered up some slightly confusing news for Pittsburgh Steelers fans.
The star running back's 2014 season was cut short by a knee injury, but Bell said today that his knee is getting close to 100 percent.
This is quite an interesting development because this update comes three months after the last time Bell said his knee was close to 100 percent.
Bell injury boost?
Bell originally suffered the injury back in late December, with the expectation being that he would fully recover from the setback within a few weeks.
And as NFL.com reported today, it certainly is slightly worrying for Steelers fans that Bell is still struggling, a fact that would suggest his injury was way more severe than first thought.
"When Pittsburgh Steelers All Pro running back Le'Veon Bell hyperextended his right knee in late December, the expectation was that he would be fully recovered in a few weeks," NFL.com reported on Friday.
"By late January, Bell told NFL Network that the knee was "close to 100 percent."
"For that reason, it came as a surprise when Bell acknowledged Thursday, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, that his knee is "getting close to 100 percent.""
In the NBA, the Bulls, Cavaliers and the Warriors all went 3 nothing up in their respective series on Tuesday night.
Cleveland beat the Celtics 103-95, while both Chicago and Golden State needed overtime to edge closer to series victories.
The Warriors were particularly impressive as they came back from a 20-point deficit.
