Clippers taking a cautious approach with injured guard Avery Bradley

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Avery Bradley couldn’t play in the Clippers’ game against the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night at Staples Center, their latest must-win game as they head down the regular season’s home stretch. When he plays again is anyone’s guess. He wasn’t about to make one.Bradley missed his fourth consecutive game because of a sports hernia, or what the Clippers have officially termed athletic pubalgia. It’s been an ongoing battle for Bradley, dating to before the Clippers acquired him in the Jan. 29 trade that sent Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons.The Clippers coveted Bradley’s defensive skills after losing Patrick Beverley to season-ending knee surgery Nov. 22. Bradley and Beverley play a similar style and excel at badgering opposing guards. The Clippers could have used either or both against the Rockets’ James Harden and Chris Paul.Bradley said his goal is to get back into the Clippers’ lineup as soon as possible and to stay there for the rest of the season. The last thing he wants is to play one game, aggravate the injury and then have to sit out for an extended period. Once he gets back, he wants to stick. “Right now, I’m doing a lot of different exercises to try to strengthen a lot of different areas,” he said. “(Offseason surgery) is something we’re exploring. We’re not sure about it yet. Right now, we’re just trying to take it day by day and focus on everything around it.”Bradley couldn’t pinpoint an exact date, game or play that caused the lower abdominal injury. It happened earlier in the season while he was playing with the Pistons. He sat out seven games between Dec. 16 and Jan. 2 because of what Detroit called a right adductor strain.“It’s one of those things where you just have to be smart about it,” Bradley said.Bradley is in the final season of a contract that pays him nearly $9 million for 2017-18. He can become a free agent at season’s end. Clippers coach Doc Rivers said recently he liked the idea of having defensive standouts Bradley and Beverley together on the team next season.GALLINARI UPDATEPower forward Danilo Gallinari said he was scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday on his bruised and swollen right hand. He hasn’t played since Golden State’s Draymond Green accidentally elbowed him during the Clippers’ loss to the Warriors on Feb. 22 in Oakland. Gallinari can’t make a fist or tie his shoes, let alone handle a basketball.“We have another exam tomorrow and we’ll talk to the doctors and see what’s going on,” he said. “It’s painful. It’s weak. Tomorrow after the exam we can see if there’s something structurally wrong. … Hopefully, there is nothing going on.”WALLACE TRANSFERREDThe Clippers transferred guard Tyrone Wallace to their Ontario-based G League team after he played in Tuesday’s victory over the Denver Nuggets, the last day of his 25-day contract with the NBA team. The Clippers control his rights for the rest of the season, but he can’t play for them again.Wallace could sign a 10-day contract or a pro-rated deal for the rest of the season.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Pat’s P.A.T. challenge begins in aid of autism charity

first_imgAn inspirational local man is beginning an epic journey today in support of iCARE Inishowen.Pat Gaynor from Buncrana is setting out on the Pedals And Togs (P. A. T.) challenge – a 2500km /1500 mile cycle and swim on the Wild Atlantic Way.The charity fundraiser came about by chance, when Pat was painting in iCARE and got a first-hand look at the work they do. He saw how the parent-led volunteer group do trojan work to support young people with autism – all on a shoestring budget. Pat was so moved that he decided to give up six weeks of his time to do a sponsored cycle for iCARE, which kicks off today in Kinsale.He is calling for the public to support his journey via a GoFundMe page here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/2500-km-cycle-for-icare-buncrana-donegalIn his own words, he wrote: “Last year a friend of mine invited me give a hand and help paint the facilities at iCARE. “During the couple of days painting I witnessed the amazing parents and volunteers working with amazing children and young people with autism but more than witnessing, I could feel the remarkable caring, understanding and love provided at the centre.“The painting was very easy. My couple of days painting were a humbling experience.“At this time I was looking at a few travel options, trip to India stuff and Woodstock stuff. Nothing in Ireland had entered the radar.“The simple truth is one morning when I awoke the idea of cycling the Wild Atlantic Way was planted in my mind. It was like catchy song that wouldn’t go stop playing.“I can’t explain where it came from but there it was, cycling the Wild Atlantic Way in aid of i. C.A.R.E.“Well, some things just have to be done!” Pat will have the Buncrana community cheering him on during the self-funded cycle, where all monies received will be donated to iCARE.If you would like to donate to the 2,500km cycle, visit: https://www.gofundme.com/f/2500-km-cycle-for-icare-buncrana-donegalPat’s P.A.T. challenge begins in aid of autism charity was last modified: May 27th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CHARITY CYCLEiCAREpat gaynorlast_img read more

Crude by rail exports above 200000 barrels per day for the first

first_imgThe discount increase has been blamed on the difficulty in getting western Canadian oil to market because of tight pipeline capacity as three proposed export pipeline projects face ongoing delays.AltaCorp says the rate of growth in crude-by-rail volumes since the discount rose above US$25 per barrel last year has actually lagged behind that seen in 2011-12, the last time the differential was as wide.It attributes the slower growth to reluctance by rail companies to increase capacity and producers to sign long-term transport contracts to deal with market conditions that may only last until new pipelines come on stream, possibly as early as late 2019.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) CALGARY, A.B. – The National Energy Board says crude-by-rail exports from Canada set another record in June, rising to 204,558 barrels per day.That’s up almost three percent from 198,800 in May and 86 percent from 109,500 in June 2017.In a report Wednesday, analysts at AltaCorp Capital linked growth in railway oil shipments to the wider-than-usual discount being paid for Western Canadian Select crude compared with New York-benchmark West Texas Intermediate oil.last_img read more

The Department for Work and Pensions DWP is faci

The Department for Work and Pensions DWP is faci

first_imgThe Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is facing questions over why it failed to release the results of a pilot project that was supposed to correct a fatal flaw in its “fitness for work” test.DWP had promised a judge that the pilot project would test ways of making the work capability assessment (WCA) safer for claimants with mental health conditions and learning difficulties, by ensuring that the necessary medical evidence was collected from their healthcare professionals.Many disabled people claiming out-of-work disability benefits have been unable to prove they could not work because the WCA process has been focused on an unfair and discriminatory face-to-face assessment, and they were unable to provide enough written evidence to back up their cases.Ministers promised a tribunal appeal hearing two years ago that they would carry out the pilot project, but nine months after it ended they do not appear to have passed on its findings to the lawyers representing the two disabled people who took the long-running legal case, or even informed them that the pilot project had finished.The Mental Health Resistance Network (MHRN), the user-led group that was behind the legal case, said this week that this apparent failure was “extraordinary”.Denise McKenna, MHRN’s co-founder, said this suggested that DWP had not addressed the WCA’s fatal flaws.She said: “I am not confident that what they have come up with is going to be robust enough, that it’s going to include other medical evidence in enough cases.“The other thing is I am not confident that they will pay any heed to the medical evidence anyway. They just don’t want to take account of medical evidence.“They just want everything to be resting on that Mickey Mouse interview, that Mickey Mouse assessment.”MHRN and other activists believe that many disabled benefit claimants – particularly those with mental health conditions – have lost their lives because of DWP’s failure to collect all the medical evidence necessary when assessing whether people were eligible for employment and support allowance (ESA).The legal case had concluded that the WCA discriminated against some disabled people with mental health conditions and learning difficulties.DWP has now admitted that it completed this pilot project – which took place in Glasgow – last May.DWP only admitted that the pilot project had been completed in a response to a Disability News Service (DNS) story about Mark Wood, a disabled man who starved to death after he was found “fit for work”.His mother, Jill Gant, had questioned why DWP had still failed to act on the issue of further medical evidence, nearly seven years after a coroner in another case had warned ministers that they needed to address the problem, or risk other disabled people losing their lives.She had tried for two years to persuade DWP ministers Mark Harper and Priti Patel to act.Wood died in the summer of 2013, more than three years after the coroner’s letter to DWP ministers.His mother blames his death on the failure of DWP and Atos assessors to collect the medical evidence needed to demonstrate that he was eligible for ESA.A DWP spokesman said the department had updated guidance for the assessors who carry out WCAs – now carried out by the US company Maximus, rather than Atos – but that he could not say how the guidance had changed.He said: “The outcomes have been that we’ve updated our general practices and guidance for assessments, which fits in with our ongoing process to ensure the WCA provides the right service for claimants.“The new guidance provides examples of situations when further evidence should be requested by healthcare professionals in the WCA process, especially for people with a mental health condition.”But he said he could not release the new version because the department was “currently in the midst of discussing guidance and the training for healthcare professionals with our provider”.last_img read more
