Giordano week-to-week with hamstring injury

  Giordano week-to-week with hamstring injury Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano is considered week-to-week with a hamstring injury, general manager Brad Treliving said Thursday, according to Sportsnet's Eric Francis. Giordano, 36, won't require surgery and there is no official timeline for his return. "This is not as long-term as we initially feared," Treliving said, according to the Calgary Sun's Kristen Anderson. The Flames captain exited with the injury during the second period of Tuesday's contest against the San Jose Sharks after falling awkwardly while shooting. Giordano is the defensive backbone of a Flames team battling for a playoff berth in a tight Western Conference.

Paul George‘s troublesome left hamstring continues to be an issue. The Clippers star forward exited the team’s Thursday game vs. Boston in the second quarter after suffering a hamstring strain, according to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.

As Youngmisuk details, it’s the third time this season that George has dealt with a similar injury. He sat out on Jan. 4 due to left hamstring tightness, then missed nine more games in January after straining the hamstring a few days later.

Pistons reportedly reach buyout with Reggie Jackson, he’s headed to Clippers

  Pistons reportedly reach buyout with Reggie Jackson, he’s headed to Clippers Reggie Jackson came to Detroit to be the outside to Andre Drummond‘s inside. That never panned out, in part due to a rash of injuries to Jackson that kept a lot over a couple of those seasons. Drummond has been traded to Cleveland, and with that it was time for the Pistons to move on from Jackson as well. As had been rumored was coming, the Pistons and Jackson have agreed to a buyout, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.And, once he clears waivers, he is headed to the Clippers.Guard Reggie Jackson has agreed to a contract buyout with the Detroit Pistons and plans to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers upon clearing waivers, league sources tell ESPN.

“I’m a little concerned about that one because that’s the second time now, maybe third,” head coach Doc Rivers said of the injury. “Listen, I don’t know what to do, but I know rest you have to do and we’ll see.”

The injury at least came at the right time for George and the Clippers, who won’t resume play until Feb. 22. That gives the 29-year-old over a week to rest and rehab. The Clippers have yet to provide an update on the severity of the injury or a possible recovery timeline, so it’s not clear if it’s as serious as the strain that forced George out of action for nine games last month.

Although the 37-18 Clippers hold the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference, the team has dealt with injuries all season long. George has missed 21 games in total, while Kawhi Leonard has missed 13. Key rotation players Patrick Beverley and Landry Shamet have also been sidelined for 15 and 17 games, respectively.

Police said he is unfamiliar with the area and may be in need of services.

“We got to get healthy,” Rivers said, per Youngmisuk. “That’s going to be the key for us. And then we got to play multiple games in a row as a group so we can kind of get some continuity. But other than that, I love our spirit, I love how we are. We’re good.”
