Warriors’ Jacob Evans out indefinitely with concussion, broken nose

SAN FRANCISCO — Warriors guard Jacob Evans III, who exited Tuesday’s game against the Mavericks after being elbowed in the face, suffered a concussion and a broken nose. There is no timetable for his return. With 4:38 remaining in the second quarter, Evans went up for a defensive rebound and took an inadvertent elbow to the face from Mavericks center Dwight Powell. He collapsed in front of the Mavericks’ bench and, after lying on the court for several minutes, was helped to the locker room by a team trainer. Evans, the No. 28 pick in 2018’s NBA Draft, will enter the league’s concussion protocol per NBA rules. Upon his return, he will wear a protective mask until his nose has healed. There is no time frame to complete the protocol, which involves players completing several workout and on-court assessments until they are symptom free.Related Articles Warriors sign Damion Lee to multi-year deal Warriors bring back big man Marquese Chriss on 2-way contract Watch Ayesha Curry surprise kids with new playroom Steph Curry will join Klay Thompson at Washington State jersey retirement Video: Klay Thompson opens…

Watch: 49ers coach Shanahan previews NFC Championship match against Packers

CLICK HERE if you’re having trouble viewing the media on a mobile device. Kyle Shanahan told reporters he has not seen much change in the Green Bay Packers throughout their season as the 49ers head coach previewed the upcoming NFC Championship showdown. “I thought they were good before we played them, I thought they were good when we played them and they’ve been even better since,” Shanahan said. “Not a lot’s changed on tape, I just think not a lot of teams have done much on ‘em: They’ve been holding people to a small amount of yards and a few points.” In a pre-game press conference that trended toward family business, including the sibling rivalry that brothers Mike and Matt LaFleur will channel into the matchup, Shanahan also touched on his own playing experience as a reason for his early verve for calling pass plays and how he has since adapted to his roster’s strengths, like his father Mike Shanahan.

Storm prompts temporary closure at Whiskeytown

Due to the heavy rainfall, the forecast for more throughout the day Thursday, and the threat of debris flows due to the 2018 Carr Fire, the south side of Whiskeytown National Recreation Area is closed until further notice. This includes Crystal Creek Road and Kennedy Memorial Drive at the Clair A. Hill Whiskeytown Dam. Park officials made the decision to close the area based on the severe weather forecast, which is predicting heavy rain and snow within the burned areas of the Carr Fire. The concern is for intense rainfall on Shasta Bally, which is exceptionally steep and has highly erosive soils. Specifically, the Brandy Creek, Boulder Creek, Paige Boulder Creek, Mill Creek and Crystal Creek watersheds have all been identified as areas with a high potential for debris flow. Debris flows are extremely dangerous water-laden masses of soil, vegetation, and rock that rush down mountainsides and funnel into stream channels capturing additional material in their path and eventually forming fan-shaped deposits on valley floors. Smaller scale landslides and flooding may occur anywhere within the park during rain events. “Visitor and staff safety are behind this…

49ers-Packers is a tale of two quarterbacks, and it might not be a pretty one

Early this week, Rob Reischel, who contributes to Forbes magazine, checked in with a take that will not play well in the Aaron Rodgers Fan Club. “Not many people are giving the Green Bay Packers a chance in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game,” Reischel wrote. “The 49ers routed the Packers, 37-8, back in Week 12. San Francisco is an early 7-point favorite. And the 49ers seem to have the edge at several different positional groups.” To pull off “a shocking upset,” he added, “Rodgers must play at an all-world level. Using history as an indicator, though, the odds of that seem rather remote.” Reischel points out that in three NFC Championship games, Rodgers is 1-2 with a passer rating of 70.5, far below his career rating of 104.2. Furthermore, Reischel wrote, Rodgers, who hails from Chico, a three-hour drive from the Bay Area, has played in four “homecoming” games (Sunday’s will be the fifth). He is 1-3 — including a playoff loss in 2013 and last November’s ritual slaughter. So, put the champagne on ice? You’re new here, aren’t you? This is the postseason, where everyone…

(Fake) World War over

The shortest world war in history is history. Did you miss the news? I’m talking about the big war between the U.S. and Iran that Democrats and the liberal media were hoping and maybe even praying would explode in the Middle East this week and prevent the re-election of President Trump. The war never really happened, though. President Trump called it off before it started just before noon on Wednesday. Actually, he never planned a war with Iran or wanted one in the first place. But I suspect some desperate Democrats did. I think they were secretly hoping Iran’s feeble missile attack in response to the obliteration of its terrorist-in-chief Qasem Soleimani by a drone really had killed a few American soldiers in Iraq and ignited a full-scale U.S.-Iran war. (It would have been a very short war, too, and the Iranian mullahs know it. They are thugs, but they aren’t stupid or suicidal, and they now understand the penalty for crossing one of Trump’s bright red lines.) It’s a cynical thing to say, but a new war in the Middle East with Iran was…

WATCH: Students Run For Their Lives As Microburst Slams Into Elementary School Gym

CLINTON, N.C. (CBS Local) — Three students in North Carolina were hospitalized Monday after part of the roof of the school’s gym was blown off by strong winds.

CHP: Girl, 12, Struck And Killed On Business 80 Was Following Other Girl Who Ran Across

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Officers have released more information on the Wednesday night incident where a girl who ran out onto Business 80 was struck and killed by a car. According to California Highway Patrol, around 9:50 p.m., a 12-year-old Sacramento girl had run onto the freeway near the Watt Avenue overcrossing. It appears that the girl followed a 16-year-old girl who had also run across the freeway and was standing in the center median. A driver heading northbound on Business 80 (also known as State Route 51) was unable to avoid hitting the 12-year-old when she ran out in front of the car. An off-duty doctor and passing ambulance both stopped to help the girl, but she was soon pronounced dead at the scene by medics. The driver of the car stayed at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, CHP says. The 12-year-old girl killed had come from the nearby Children’s Receiving Home of Sacramento off Auburn Boulevard, authorities have said. Authorities have not released the name of the girl at this point in the investigation.
