(AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)OKLAHOMA CITY — Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has a left foot bruise and his status is uncertain for Game 2 of the Western Conference playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder.Mitchell left Oklahoma City’s 116-108 win Game 1 on Sunday after stubbing his toe in the third quarter, and he played sporadically the rest of the way. A team spokesman said Mitchell had an MRI on Monday, and the team will provide a status update on Tuesday. When asked if he was concerned about missing Game 2 on Wednesday, Mitchell said, “Not at all.”ADVERTISEMENT Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding San Miguel-Alab dethrones HK, gains finals berth MOST READ LATEST STORIES “I can walk,” he said. “I think tomorrow will be the deciding factor, but I feel fine.

He said he expects to be able to help the Jazz bounce back.“We were stagnant,” he said. “The ball didn’t move as much as we had hoped or as we would like. We made those adjustments in practice just now.” Oklahoma City’s Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook were asked about Mitchell after Sunday’s game. At one point, Anthony said he’d already answered one and he’d let Westbrook take the second. Westbrook deflected it.“We just came out and competed,” Westbrook said. “Both teams played hard.”As for the actual game, Mitchell said Westbrook was focused defensively and Thunder guard Corey Brewer was a better defensive player than he thought. He said being exposed to the environment should pay off on Wednesday.“Now that we’ve got the first game under our belt — some of us haven’t played in the playoffs — we know the atmosphere, we know how loud it’s going to be in here,” he said. “I think coming out the second game, we’ll be more poised and more calm.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.

She told the BBC in comments published Friday that she was “treated with disrespect” at a recent meeting.“I think it’s indicative of two things,” Scott said. “One is lack of regard for the athlete’s voice in general. I think it’s also indicative of leadership of WADA’s alignment with the Olympic movement.”US Anti-Doping Agency chief Travis Tygart, who last month condemned the decision to reinstate RUSADA, applauded Scott’s comments, indicating the International Olympic Committee had unduly influenced the global anti-doping body.“The IOC tail is now unquestionably wagging the WADA dog, and that is not something anyone who cares about clean, fair sport wants to see,” Tygart said in a statement on Friday backing Scott.“The show must not go on as it does today –- and that is why we want to make it crystal clear to athletes that USADA will always stand with them and listen to their voices as we continue to push for a reformed WADA so that, for the first time, it starts to represent those we are supposed to serve: the athletes.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000United States Anti-Doping Agency chief Travis Tygart backed the comments by Beckie Scott that WADA is too close to the Olympic movement © GETTY IMAGES NORTH AMERICA/AFP/File / ALEX WONGLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 13 – Beckie Scott, chair of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Athlete Committee, says in a BBC interview that she was “bullied” by some WADA officials over her opposition to reinstating Russia’s anti-doping agency.Scott, a Canadian former Olympic cross-country skiing champion, last month resigned from the panel that recommended lifting the ban on RUSADA, which had been declared non-compliant in 2015 after revelations of a vast state-backed scheme to avoid drug testers.
