Loose manhole cover destroys George Russell’s F1 car, rescue workers hit bridge during recovery Racing on a street circuit has an added level of difficulty that you just don’t get by racing on an actual track. There are walls all around you so there’s no room for error and since you are on publicly driven streets, that means racing on the oils and tire tread that can come from our passenger vehicles. One thing that is not supposed to occur is a loose manhole cover coming up to damage a Formula 1 car but that’s what happened in the opening minutes of Free Practice 1 at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Russell Westbrook dealt with significant pain in his left hand for approximately six weeks before the Thunder were eliminated from the postseason, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports. Westbrook, who shot 36% from the field during the opening round, and fellow All-Star Paul Georgeunderwent surgical procedures this week. Westbrook had a ligament repaired in his left hand as well as arthroscopic surgery on his right knee. George had a tendon repaired in his right shoulder and will soon undergo surgery to address a small labrum tear in his left shoulder. It’s difficult to know how the injuries might affect the Thunder next season, although Westbrook should be ready in plenty of time for training camp, Dawson continues. Expected roster changes over the next four months will have a bigger impact, Dawson adds.

  • The Trail Blazers traded Will Barton to the Nuggets four years ago, but Barton downplays the significance of trying to eliminate his former team, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic. Barton is averaging 9.2 PPG and 4.9 RPG this postseason. “I’m past that. That was a long time ago in my career,” Barton said. “They just happen to be the opponent that we’re playing against and I just want to beat them, not because I used to play with them, just because they’re in our way for trying to advance. That’s the only thing I’m thinking about. I can’t try to make it personal or anything like that.”
  • The Pacers, Bulls and Suns are the most likely landing spots for Ricky Rubio if he doesn’t remain with the Jazz, Frank Urbina of Hoops Hype writes. Rubio could come at a lower cost than other point guard options for Indiana, while he could give Chicago and Phoenix a veteran presence while also grooming a younger player at the position, Urbina adds. Rubio will be an unrestricted free agent after making nearly $15 million this season.
  • The Jazz brought in six draft prospects on Wednesday, according to a tweet from Utah’s media relations department. Power forwards Mamadi Diakite (Virginia) and Dewan Hernandez (Miami, Fla.), wings Tyus Battle (Syracuse) and Brandon Randolph (Arizona) and guards Matt Mooney (Texas Tech) and T.J. Gibbs (Notre Dame) were the visitors. Big men Neemias Queta (Utah State), Zylan Cheatham (Arizona State), Silvio De Sousa (Kansas) and Australian Harry Froling and guards Payton Pritchard (Oregon State) and Devon Dotson (Kansas) are coming in on Saturday, according to another Jazz tweet.
