Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson still has no timeframe for a return to practice, nearly two months after spraining his right ankle.
Despite retirement, Splitter said he believes he won’t be away from the NBA for a long time. In the same interview, he admitted he’s talking with his former coach Gregg Popovich about the possibility to take a position within the Spurs.
[San Antonio] Is a place where I feel at home, where I know everyone. Every time I go there for a visit, they open the doors for me. It does not mean that I will have always a guaranteed position over there. But I think and I’m thrilled about the possibility of working with the Spurs in the future, Splitter said.
Splitter was the first Brazilian to win an NBA title, before Leandro Barbosa (2015) and Anderson Varejao (2017) joined him after winning with the Golden State Warriors.

Starting goalie Henrik Lundqvist has appeared in 27 of the Rangers’ past 30 games — twice when he came off the bench to replace backup Ondrej Pavelec, who is currently injured. The Rangers have lost 11 of their past 14 tilts, and Lundqvist has given up 18 goals on 128 shots during their current four-game skid. That includes a 7-4 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

That first period we came out with energy, we Nemanja Bjelica Jersey were ready to play, Vigneault said. Obviously, toward the end, there wasn’t much left in the tank. We’ve had a full week to regroup here, and I want us to play a good game in front of a guy that’s going to play his first game in goal for us.
