Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka is suspended for the upcoming NBA season after an inappropriate and consensual sexual relationship with a female staffer who also accused him of making “unwanted comments” toward her. The news appeared to blindside Udoka’s fiancée Nia Long, as the actress posted a cryptic message on Instagram following the news, but it goes a little deeper than that.
The Celtics employee with whom Ime Udoka had an affair helped make all his travel arrangements ... and that job sometimes included organizing travel for his fiancee, Nia Long. Sources connected to the couple and the NBA franchise tell TMZ ... one of the staffer's duties included planning Udoka's team-related travel, and we're told she was also involved in booking travel for Nia to come to Boston or to road games.
Richard Jefferson strongly suggests Ime Udoka’s relationship with Celtics staff member was anything but consensual

Two Bears defensive stars are officially questionable for this Sunday’s Week 3 matchup against the Texans. Standout cornerback Jaylon Johnson is battling a quad injury, while starting WILL linebacker Roquan Smith is working through a hip injury. Johnson’s status is a little more concerning, since he started the week...
It’s hard to believe, but the 2022-23 NBA season is almost here. About three months has passed since the Golden State Warriors topped the Boston Celtics in the 2022 NBA Finals, which paved the way for a frantic offseason. As the new campaign inches closer, here’s a refresher of...
The Bears will be without their top cornerback when they take on the Texans in Week 3. Jaylon Johnson is officially inactive with a quadriceps injury. Johnson’s status steadily downgraded throughout the week of practice. He started as a full participant on Wednesday, then was limited in Thursday’s practice, and finally did not participate on Friday. With Johnson sidelined the Bear will have decisions to make in their secondary. Will they continue to kick Kyler Gordon into the slot in nickel packages? If so, Lamar Jackson is a choice to sub in as the team’s second outside corner. Or do they leave Gordon on the outside and bring in a player like Jaylon Jones to play in the slot? Jones has never played a defensive snap in his young NFL career. Jackson played about half of the Jets’ defensive snaps in 2020, but hasn’t played on defense since that season.
Velus Jones Jr. is officially doubtful to make his regular season NFL debut on Sunday. The Bears rookie wide receiver has been plagued by a hamstring injury dating back to training camp. He was in and out of practice throughout the summer and only appeared in one preseason game. Jones Jr. did improve as the week went on, however. He started as a DNP on Wednesday, then turned in two limited practices on Thursday and Friday.
Bears running back David Montgomery left with a leg injury during Sunday's game against the Texans. Montgomery spent a concerning amount of time on the ground with help from trainers. The running back left the game under his power but proceeded to the locker room after an evaluation in the team's blue medical tent.

After the Cleveland Guardians swept the White Sox, pushing Chicago to the brink of elimination, they made a move that was a very public L for many on social media. Guardians fans aren't happy about a questionable photo the team tweeted out of their rookies dressed up as inmates. Notably two white players are dressed up as police officers while the rookies, including several people of color, wore prison jumpsuits and shackles.
Lucas Giolito pushed back when asked how surprising or shocking it is that the White Sox are in their current position so late in the season. “I wouldn't say it's surprising or shocking,” Giolito said Friday. “We've had a whole season of not putting things together. Tonight, another tough loss late.”
When Seth Jones signed an eight-year extension with the Blackhawks in July of 2021, he probably didn't think a full-blown rebuild would be on the horizon less than one year later. At the time, Chicago's trajectory appeared to be back on the upswing but that's clearly no longer the case under new management.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. – Jaquan Brisker has been in the right place early in his NFL career, but the Bears rookie hasn’t been able to seal the deal. Through two games, Brisker has a team-high seven missed tackles, according to Pro Football Focus. The Penn State product had a 42.9 percent missed tackle rate in the Week 1 win over the San Francisco 49ers. That number dropped to 28.6 percent in the Week 2 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
