D’Angelo Russell to miss at least two weeks with thumb injury

NEW ORLEANS — Warriors guard D’Angelo Russell will miss at least two weeks with a sprained right thumb he suffered in Friday’s loss to the Boston Celtics. An MRI Friday night confirmed the sprain. Russell will be re-evaluated in two weeks and will miss at least eight games. The injury further depletes a roster that now has just one healthy point guard and will force coach Steve Kerr to get creative with his offense. “I’m just dealing with it, so next man up,” Kerr said Friday. “I thought Ky Bowman came in and gave us a really good lift after D-Lo went out, so we’ll keep playing him.” After a 10-point first quarter, Russell struggled while apparently dealing with a bothersome thumb in Friday’s loss to the Celtics. He scored just two more points and committed nine turnovers before he went to the locker room midway through the third quarter.

With Tomas Hertl expected back, Sharks look to reach elusive mark

SAN JOSE — Center Tomas Hertl is expected to be in the lineup for Saturday’s game with the Detroit Red Wings as the Sharks look to reach what’s been an elusive mark for them so far this season. With a win, the Sharks can get to a .500 points percentage for the first time this year. The Sharks started the season with a four-game losing streak and were 4-5-1 after a 4-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Oct. 24. They then lost five straight games to fall to the bottom of the Pacific Division standings. After five straight wins, the Sharks (9-10-1) entered Saturday in seventh place in the division, but just five points back of second place Arizona. The Sharks beat Anaheim 5-3 at Honda Center on Thursday to move within one point of the Ducks. A win won’t be easy. The Red Wings enter the game with a 7-12-2 record, but are 3-0-1 since they acquired center Robby Fabbri from the St. Louis Blues on Nov. 7. Detroit is led by it’s top line of Anthony Mantha, Tyler Bertuzzi and Dylan Larkin,…

Community Mourns Saugus High School Shooting Victims as Authorities Investigate Motive, Where Gun Came From

Authorities on Saturday were investigating how a teenage boy gained access to a firearm and why he opened fire in the quad at Saugus High School, killing two students and wounding three others. Parents had just dropped their teenagers off at school when the gun fire rang out Thursday morning, sending panicked students running out and others barricading in offices and classrooms. The shooter, identified as 16-year-old Nathaniel Berhow, appeared to fire randomly at the crowd for a few seconds before turning the gun on himself, authorities said. He died at a hospital Friday afternoon, sheriff’s officials said. Two of the five students shot, 15-year-old Gracie Anne Muehlberger and 14-year-old Dominic Blackwell, both died in the hospital on Thursday. Berhow, a junior at the high school who authorities said carried out the attack on his 16th birthday, was described by officials and those who knew him as someone who wasn’t socially awkward or a loner. The teenager was a student athlete who was involved in school activities, the Sheriff’s Department said. “This is kind of out of the blue,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.…

Biden, Warren Skip CA Democrats Gathering, Irking Party Leaders

The decisions by Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren to skip a weekend gathering of thousands of fervent California Democrats less than three months before voting begins have frustrated and puzzled some party leaders. But they have offered a chance for their rivals to capitalize on the absence of two front-runners at the gathering that serves as an unofficial kickoff of the final sprint to California’s March 3 primary, which offers the biggest delegate haul of any primary or caucus. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in particular could benefit from Warren’s absence as the two battle over the party’s most progressive voters, many of whom were galvanized to become more involved in official party politics after Sanders’ 2016 bid. Sanders’ campaign has already hired 40 staff members in California, far more than any of his competitors, and is treating the state as comparable to early voting states like Iowa and New Hampshire. “The senator makes it clear that the state is his priority,” said Jane Kim, the campaign’s California political director and former member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. The convention stage will give candidates…
