Lakers star Anthony Davis out at least 1 month with MCL sprain from Timberwolves loss [Video]

Los Angeles Lakers star Anthony Davis will be out for at least a month after suffering an MCL sprain in his left knee, the team said Saturday.

Davis left Friday night’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves in the third quarter after his knee was rolled up on by Jaden McDaniels — which sent the two to the court while Davis grabbed his leg in pain.

He slowly walked off the court and into the tunnel toward the locker room after standing up, but collapsed in pain in the tunnel.

He finished with nine points and one rebound in 20 minutes in the Lakers’ 110-92 loss at the Target Center.

Davis underwent an MRI in Chicago on Saturday — ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Bulls on Sunday — which revealed the MCL sprain.

Warriors’ Steph Curry breaks record for most 3-pointers in a single month with 83 triples in April

During an explosive month of basketball in April, Steph Curry continues to shatter records. After surpassing Kobe Bryant’s streak of 10 consecutive games with 30 or more points at age 32 or older, Steph Curry rewrote the history books on Sunday for another record.

With five triples on six attempts from beyond the arc in the first half against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night, Curry moved past James Harden for the most 3-pointers in a single month 83 triples. Harden hit 82 3-pointers in November of 2019.

To seal the record, Curry buried a jumper from way downtown. With seconds ticking away in the first half, the seven-time All-Star point guard drilled a 3-pointer from only a couple of steps inside the halfcourt line.

Thomas Hitzlsperger: The past seven years have been a fantastic journey

Thomas Hitzlsperger says becoming chief executive of Stuttgart shows football has made “progress” on LGBT+ issues since he came out seven years ago.

He was appointed chief executive of Bundesliga club Stuttgart, where he had also been a player, in February 2019.

“The past seven years have been a fantastic journey,” he told BBC Sport.

“The fact I’m the CEO of one of the biggest clubs in Germany is a sign of the progress. It wouldn’t have been possible 10 years ago – even five years ago.

“My life changed seven years ago when I went public, and has changed for the better.”

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live’s Euro Leagues podcast, Hitzlsperger said he understood the “anxiety” any current professional footballer still has about coming out.

“Someone insulted me on social media recently using homophobic language, but it
