    James Harden makes his return to Houston, as his Brooklyn Nets take on the Rockets. Months following a rocky and much-publicized exit, James Harden makes his return to the city of Houston on Wednesday night, as his Brooklyn Nets take on the Rockets. Back in January, Harden was granted his wish to be traded to the Nets in a massive four-team trade also including the Indiana Pacers and Cleveland Cavaliers. Since joining the likes of Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, Harden has thrived on his new team. Through 22 games, Harden is averaging 25.3 points, 11.3 assists and 8.7 rebounds while shooting 49.0-percent from the field and 41.9-percent from the three-point line. While Harden is thriving in Brooklyn, the Rockets are having a miserable season. Prior to Wednesday night’s tip-off, the Rockets are on 12-game losing streak. Their latest loss came on Monday night, when they fell to the Cavaliers...
    Filip Chytil may return to the Rangers lineup Tuesday against the Sabres following a 14-game absence. “There’s a good chance he’ll play [Tuesday],” head coach David Quinn said following practice Monday afternoon, adding that the 21-year-old center is considered a “game-time decision.” The Rangers’ depth took a blow when Chytil sustained a hand injury on Jan. 24 and was given an initial recovery timeline of four to six weeks. He practiced with the team for the first time last week but has been kept out of the last two games as the coaching staff continued to evaluate him. While recovering from his injury, Chytil was placed on the COVID-19 Protocol list Feb. 11. He was removed 10 days later. Chytil said last week that he did contract the coronavirus. With Chytil set to return, the Rangers may be losing another player for a prolonged period of time. Quinn said...
    Warriors guard Stephen Curry will return for Tuesday night’s game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden, as will centers James Wiseman and Kevon Looney. Curry, who missed Saturday night’s loss to the Charlotte Hornets because he was not feeling well, was a full participant during Monday’s practice in New York. That was the first absence for Curry during a season in which he’s playing at an MVP level. In 34.1 minutes per game, he is averaging 29.9 points on 48.6% shooting (42.3% from 3-point range), 6.2 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals. Getting Wiseman and Looney back is a major boost for the Warriors, who have been playing without a single player taller than 6-foot-7 for the last 10 games. Golden State is 5-5 in that span. Wiseman will play for the first time since spraining his left wrist in a loss to the...
    Warriors guard Stephen Curry returned to practice Monday and is on track to play Tuesday against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. Curry, 32, missed all of Saturday night’s loss in Charlotte, his hometown, because he was not feeling well. A late scratch moments before tipoff, Curry was OK to practice Monday after the Warriors had the day off on Sunday. “He’s feeling better today,” Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said of Curry. “He participated in practice fully. We anticipate he’ll be available tomorrow.” That absence was the first of Curry’s season, during which he’s playing at an MVP-caliber level. In 34.1 minutes per game, he is averaging 29.9 points on 48.6% shooting (42.3% from 3-point range), 6.2 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS / AP) — Kevin Durant has rejoined the Brooklyn Nets and will be able to play Saturday in his return to Golden State. Durant missed three games for coronavirus health and safety protocol reasons and faced a mandatory seven-day quarantine after being a close contact of a team employee who tested positive for the virus. The star forward continued to test negative during his absence and was able to return to practice Friday. Durant spent three seasons with the Warriors, winning NBA titles in the first two before rupturing his Achilles tendon in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals. He left shortly after to sign with the Nets. © Copyright 2021 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.

    BOSTON (CBS) — It sounds like the Celtics will finally get their franchise player back Monday night. Jayson Tatum is expected to return to the Boston lineup when the C’s pay a visit to the Chicago Bulls. Tatum missed his fifth straight game Sunday night due to NBA health and safety protocols, but Boston head coach Brad Stevens said prior to his team’s 141-109 blowout win over the Cavaliers that he anticipates Tatum will be back in the lineup Monday night.

    If the Packers are going to move onto Super Bowl 55, then they may have to do it without Aaron Jones. The running back is listed as questionable to return with a chest injury after being sent to the sideline by a brutal third-quarter hit. Jones suffered the injury on a forced fumble by Buccaneers defensive back Jordan Whitehead that was recovered by Tampa Bay linebacker Devin White. The fumble was the second of the game for Jones; the first was recovered by Green Bay tight end Robert Tonyan. The lost fumble led to another Buccaneers touchdown, which gave Tampa Bay a commanding 28-10 lead in the third quarter. The Packers answered with a touchdown shortly after, however, to make it 28-17.
    BOSTON (CBS) — The Jayson Tatum wait continues. The Celtics forward will not play Friday night when Boston finishes its two-game set with the 76ers in Philadelphia. On Wednesday, head coach Brad Stevens gave Tatum a 50-50 chance of returning for Friday night’s game, but the team announced Thursday night that Tatum would miss his fourth straight game due to health and safety protocols. Tatum is in the final stages of his return after testing positive for COVID-19 nearly two weeks ago, but his return will have to wait at least a few more days to see some game action. After Friday’s game in Philly, the Celtics will return home for a Sunday evening game against the Cavaliers before hitting the road for a game against the Bulls in Chicago on Monday night. It’s possible Tatum could return Sunday, though Stevens has said the fourth-year star won’t be getting his...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Kristaps Porzingis is set to return for the Dallas Mavericks. The 7-foot-3 Latvian center will start Wednesday night against the Charlotte Hornets for the first time since having surgery last October to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said there will be a “range of minutes” that he’s looking for Porzingis to play, but that will largely depend on how he feels. He said he will communicate with Porzingis throughout the game and check on how he is holding up. “The big thing is to get him back out on the floor,” Carlisle said. “We won’t play him in long stretches. That doesn’t make sense. We will try to space it and get him in situations where he can get in a rhythm.” Carlisle added that 12 players are active for the game but that five others remain in the...

The Panthers’ running back has been sidelined for nine games this season with ankle and shoulder injuries, but is hoping to finish out the season on a positive note with a strong December. His injury problems arose after he became only the third player in NFL history to post 1,000 yards rushing and receiving in the same season in 2019. “I feel great,” McCaffrey said of his playing status this week. “I feel really great.” McCaffrey, who grew up watching his father Ed McCaffrey win Super Bowls, said he’s always loved football but that having to watch from the sideline has made him want it even more. “It’s what makes me happy, but they say you don’t know...
    The reigning NFL MVP is back. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that quarterback Lamar Jackson is expected to make his return to action on Tuesday night against the Cowboys. Jackson, 23, was among a long list of Baltimore players who tested positive for COVID-19 and missed the Ravens’ Week 12 AFC North clash with the Steelers. He was eligible to be activated off of the COVID-19/reserve list Sunday after a 10-day quarantine and will be able to practice immediately. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman said his signal-caller will be prepared for the game despite the short turnaround, as he has been “fully engaged” in virtual meetings “So, he’s really lockstep, each and every step through,” Roman said. “The only thing he can’t do is, obviously, be here at the facility and actually take part in it. But, mentally, he’s right on it.” Running backs J.K. Dobbins and Mark...
    Getty Lamar Jackson celebrates a score in 2020.

    For a fighter nicknamed “The Truth,” it is perhaps no surprise that Errol Spence Jr. has produced all the right answers in his career so far.  When faced with the prospect of fighting a world champion in his own backyard, Spence silenced any doubters by beating Kell Brook to claim the IBF welterweight title.  SPENCE vs. GARCIA: Fight time, PPV info, odds He was more than up to the task when Mikey Garcia stepped up to try to take his crown, and then produced the goods when the opportunity arose to take the WBC belt from Shawn Porter in September 2019.  At 26-0, Spence is not just right at the top of his own division but also firmly in the conversation to be considered the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world.  And yet, as he prepares to face Danny Garcia, there are new questions.

    Patrick Smith/Getty Images Running back J.K. Dobbins of the Baltimore Ravens is tackled by defensive end Isaiah Buggs of the Pittsburgh Steelers on November 01, 2020. It’s only 19 hours, but delaying the Baltimore Ravens-Pittsburgh Steelers game a third time—from Tuesday night to Wednesday afternoon—is likely to be enough time for two mission-critical Ravens players to return to Baltimore’s lineup. According to a report from Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, rookie running back J.K. Dobbins and fellow RB Mark Ingram are both going to be eligible to return for the Ravens on Wednesday, as their 10-day COVID-19 isolation period will be over. The NFL postponed this game (for a third time) to get an extra day of COVID test results and allow #Ravens players time to train and avoid muscle strains, etc. — not because of who wouldn’t be available.

    Sam Darnold is a go. The Jets quarterback will start Sunday against the Dolphins, barring any setbacks with his shoulder Friday in practice, coach Adam Gase said. Darnold missed the last two games with the shoulder injury — his third and fourth games missed because of it this season — but is feeling good enough to return to the field as he tries to deliver the 0-10 Jets their first win of the year. “It’s been a good week for Sam,” Gase said Friday. “He looks, from the last time we were going through a week before that New England game, the way he’s throwing the football right now, you can tell there’s a big difference as far as the control, the velocity, his change of pace on throws.

But the first Fight of the Century came on July 4, 1910, in Reno, Nevada, when Jack Johnson defended the heavyweight title against former champ James J. Jeffries.

    Conor McGregor has agreed to return to the UFC for a rematch with Dustin Poirier on Jan. 23 at UFC 257. UFC President Dana White confirmed to The Associated Press on Thursday that McGregor has ended his latest retirement from mixed martial arts by signing an agreement for a 155-pound fight with Poirier. White hasn’t decided whether UFC 257 will be held in Las Vegas or in the UFC’s coronavirus-secure bubble in Abu Dhabi. “But if the world continues in the direction it looks like it’s headed, it will 100% be Fight Island,” White told the AP. McGregor (22-4) has fought in the UFC cage just twice since November 2016, but he dramatically stopped Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in 40 seconds at UFC 246 last January. The 32-year-old Irish veteran remains the biggest star in combat sports despite retiring for the third time in four years last June amid frustration with...
    SANTA CLARA — Missing the 49ers’ last game for COVID-19 precautions had Brandon Aiyuk worried. Not just about the 49ers’ fate. About himself and his family, including a newborn son. Aiyuk reflected Friday on how his rookie season went on a precarious pause. He described what an unsettling experience it was last week, when he and two teammates went on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list once deemed as high-risk contacts to Kendrick Bourne, who had tested positive. “Last week it was frustrating, most being just the unknown,” Aiyuk said. “First, I wanted to make sure I didn’t have the virus, and with what I had going on at home with my family. Not being able to be in the (49ers0 building was rough, too.” A day after the short-handed 49ers got walloped 34-17 to the Green Bay Packers, Aiyuk was able to come off the COVID...
    Ben Roethlisberger is on track to return and play this Sunday after spending the week on the COVID-19 list.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was among that group and has spent the week on the COVID reserve list. It is now Friday and a divisional matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals is only two days away.

    The Jets were hoping to have their full set of starting wide receivers on the field for the first time on Sunday, but it looks like they will still be down one. Jamison Crowder was downgraded to doubtful on Saturday afternoon, meaning he almost certainly won’t play Sunday against the Bills. Crowder injured his groin in practice on Wednesday. He did not practice Thursday and was limited on Friday. Crowder has been the Jets’ most productive offensive player this season. He has 29 catches for 383 yards and two touchdowns in four games. He missed two games earlier in the year with a hamstring injury. The Jets did activate rookie wide receiver Denzel Mims off injured reserve on Saturday, as expected. He will make his season debut. Wide receiver Breshad Perriman returned to the lineup last week after missing time with an ankle injury. The Jets have not had all...
    By ROB HARRIS, AP Global Soccer Writer LONDON (AP) — Tottenham was transformed by Gareth Bale's homecoming, just not in the way that Jose Mourinho had imagined. Cruising 3-0 when Bale came off in the bench in the 72nd minute against West Ham, Tottenham incredibly collapsed in a game it had been in control of to draw 3-3 in the Premier League on Sunday. It was with almost the last kick of the game that Manuel Lanzini blasted a shot from distance into the roof of the net to snatch a point that seemed extremely unlikely when Son Heung-min scored in the first minute and Harry Kane netted twice by the 16th minute. Agonizingly for Bale, after Fabián Balbuena pulled one back in the 82nd and Davinson Sánchez scored an own-goal three minutes later, the on-loan forward from Real Madrid had a golden chance to score the fourth. Released by...

    BOSTON (CBS) — A positive COVID-19 test for Cam Newton will likely end up costing the quarterback just one game. According to ESPN’s Field Yates, Newton is “on track” to start for the Patriots when they host the Broncos on Sunday afternoon.

That would put Newton on track to start Sunday vs. the Broncos. — Field Yates (@FieldYates) October 14, 2020 Newton first tested positive for the coronavirus on Oct. 2, just two days before the Patriots were scheduled to play the Chiefs in Kansas City.

    Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock returned to practice and the team is hoping the young quarterback will be able to play vs. the New England Patriots. Drew Lock suffered a right shoulder injury in Week 2, but the Denver Broncos did not place him on IR with the idea he might be able to return in less than the minimum three weeks. According to James Palmer of NFL Network, Lock will practice again on Thursday and he could play Sunday against the New England Patriots. Palmer added that Lock did individual work in his return to practice on Wednesday, and he’d possibly do more on Thursday. His comfort level and being able to protect himself are the (obvious) key components. Palmer further pointed out the prospect of Sunday’s game being delayed a day or two, due to a positive COVID-19 test for Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore, would not change the...

    David Peterson is back to join piecemeal Mets pitching rotation, but whom he is replacing still hasn’t been announced. This much is clear: The rookie left-hander is scheduled to start Monday’s game against the Phillies, after last week moving into the bullpen to piggyback Michael Wacha in Baltimore. Wacha struggled before Peterson pitched four innings of scoreless relief in the victory. In naming Peterson to start again, manager Luis Rojas on Saturday would not say whether Wacha or Robert Gsellman would be squeezed from the rotation. One of the two will presumably start Tuesday’s game against the Orioles at Citi Field. Gsellman, like Wacha, has struggled to give the Mets length and quality innings in the rotation.

    President Trump has a message for professional and college athletes contemplating whether to suit up amid the coronavirus: Play ball — but only after the closing lines of the "Star-Spangled Banner." "So, college football, get out there and play football. People want to see it. And stand for your American flag, stand for your national anthem because people are not happy when that doesn't happen," Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday. " You look at the NBA and what's happening with the NBA and their poor ratings. I don't know; can't imagine why. But they didn't stand, they didn't show respect to our flag." When it comes to the resumption of college and professional sports, Trump has an ostensible conflict between normalcy — one GOP operative said that "Make America normal again" would be his best possible reelection campaign slogan — and the national anthem.

Rescinding Article 26 risks Alameda character I moved to Alameda 19 years ago because I thought it was a good place to raise my daughter. I fell in love with the local homes – Victorian era, Arts & Crafts, Mediterranean – all hand-built by skilled craftspeople. Prior to the passage of Measure A (Article 26) in 1974, many of these historic, architecturally beautiful homes were torn down in order to build ugly multi-unit apartments, by people wanting to make a quick buck. Article 26 put an end to this wanton destruction, and I am thankful for that. I understand that there are aspects of Article 26 that may need to be amended to make it more relevant to the needs of today.
