Sports fans, a good morning to you on this dreary Monday.
The weekend posted its fair share of shocks, so there’s much to discuss in today’s round-up, with updates from both the NFL and NBA.
Read on below for all the latest, watch the video above for the major headlines, and leave comments and thoughts in the box provided.
James on Thompson
The time is nigh for the Cleveland Cavaliers to offer Tristan Thompson a new contract, or so says LeBron James.
Despite having held off strongly wading into the ongoing feud between Thompson and the Cavs, James posted a picture of himself and the 24-year-old to his Instagram account at the weekend, equipped with the caption ‘Get it done’.
Naturally, what James wants he usually gets, and it can be considered that this is Thompson’s trump card.
Whether or not it’s enough remains to be seen, but the franchise would be advised not to alienate two of their best players.
Durant plays down fears
Elsewhere, Kevin Durant has moved to play down speculation that he is primed for a move to the LA Lakers in the near future, despite strong rumours suggesting otherwise.
Durant outed ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith as a liar, claiming that he knew Smith couldn’t have heard the information from any official source.
Meanwhile, in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys may have another woe to add to their list, with it feared Lance Dunbar could be out for the season.
The pass-catching running back hobbled off the field during the game against the New Orleans Saints and the fear is that he damaged his ACL.
Remember, the Cowboys are already without Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, so this could be a huge problem.
LeSeaon McCoy injury
Lastly, LeSean McCoy could be out for four more weeks after undergoing an MRI scan that revealed a hamstring tear.
The Buffalo Bills’ running back was missing from the team that lost 24-10 to the New York Giants, and might now be absent for a large chunk of the campaign as he attempts to recover from this latest setback.
