Clippers face Zion Williamson-less Pelicans

LOS ANGELES — NBA action in 2020-21 means sometimes the fans get rejected. On Wednesday, the audience tuning in to ESPN’s broadcast of the Pelicans-Clippers game at Staples Center was denied a look at Zion vs. Kawhi. New Orleans’ young superstar was ruled out – and confined to his hotel room – after his coronavirus test came back inconclusive. That left the Pelicans without Williamson, who has been putting up stout numbers in his second NBA season, averaging 21.9 points, 8.1 rebounds and shootin...

Lakers thump Thunder to stay unbeaten on the road

It’s a season in which home-court advantage means as little as ever, but it still has to mean something: The Lakers have not yet lost on the road. Momentum continued to pick up for the league leaders, as the Lakers (10-3) swept aside the rebuilding Oklahoma City Thunder, 128-99, on Wednesday night to improve to 7-0 away from Staples Center – the best road start in franchise history.

Thunder’s George Hill on COVID-19 restrictions: ‘I’m gonna do what I want to do’

The rise of 16 new COVID-19 cases in the NBA since Jan. 6 is ample evidence that there are cracks in the system. But few people are trumpeting their dissatisfaction like George Hill. The outspoken Thunder point guard cried foul on the NBA’s latest restrictions for the next two weeks, the most notable of which is a restriction preventing players from leaving team hotels or having guests (which could include longtime friends or family members). Hill said he didn’t understand some of the rules, mos...

Hoornstra: For Angels broadcaster Victor Rojas, a minor league GM job made sense

The 2020 season was strange enough for Victor Rojas. Soon, he’ll sit down and figure out whether he’ll have a 2021 season at all. “It’s kind of like throwing darts in the dark,” Rojas said in a telephone interview this week. This time a year ago, Rojas was preparing for his 11th season as the Angels’ play-by-play broadcaster on Fox Sports West. The baseball industry was preparing for a season like any other.
