According to the team, the 7-foot center underwent tests at Quicken Loans Arena, which revealed the fracture, and was taken to the Cleveland Clinic for further evaluation. There is currently no timetable for his return. New teammate LeBron James said he knew it was bad the moment the injury occurred. "I heard it break," he said. "I heard it crack." "It's very deflating," James added. "It's a tough moment. We all were excited about the acquisition, you know, bring him in here. It's a tough one, not only obviously for him, first of all, but then for our ballclub." Bogut, who signed with the Cavaliers last week after being waived by the Philadelphia 76ers (who acquired him at the trade deadline from the Dallas Mavericks), is averaging a career-low 3.0 points this season to go alo

INDIANAPOLIS — Jerry Jones was hosting the annual dinner Saturday night for his coaches, scouts and other Dallas Cowboys staff members working the NFL combine, and guess who showed up? Bruce Allen. Yes, the Washington president stopped by for a cameo visit, proving that the bitter NFC East rivalry also has some ... civility.

For all of the gossip, rumors and speculation that flowed amid league personnel, agents and media at the combine, the buzz about a three-team trade that would include sending Kirk Cousins from Washington to the San Francisco 49 ers and Romo to the nation's capital was the mos
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reportedly earned himself the nickname, 'the Big Man', due to his giant manhood.That's according to The Sun, who claim Ibra's Manchester United teammates are aware of the Swede's large package because he regularly strolls around the dressing room in the nude. Staff at the Old Trafford club are reported to have initially believed the nickname had been coined because of Ibrahimovic's height - he's 6ft 4in - but the apparent true meaning is a lot more mischievous. "Zlatan's obviously a big bloke and now it appears it's in more ways than one," a source told The Sun. "The players call him Big Man as a bit of a joke about his package.

One of the most radioactive quarterbacks in recent league history is asking for another chance -- again. Johnny Manziel has re-hired agent Erik Burkhardt to help him craft a comeback, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo reported Wednesday morning. Both reported that the former Browns quarterback was first asked to make "serious commitments" to Burkhardt, who dropped Manziel as a client last February. Now the former Texas A&M star is drawing "real interest from teams" at this week's NFL Scouting Combine on Indianapolis, according to the NFL Network duo. Manziel was released by the Browns last March following two ultra-turbulent seasons in Cleveland. The 24-year-old quarterback was suspended four games last year for a substance-abuse violation and found himself embro...

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was named the man of the match after he scored the winner for Manchester United in their EFL Cup final victory over Southampton. There was only going to be one winner of the award after Ibrahimovic netted the goal that settled the tie. It was the Swede’s second goal of the afternoon after he fired in United’s opener with a 30-yard free-kick. But Ibra wasn’t the only person who scored twice at Wembley Stadium. Manolo Gabbiadini got Southampton back into the game with goals either side of half-time, improving on his already impressive start to life in England. The Italian actually scored three times in the final, but his early goal was incorrectly ruled out for offside. Gabbiadini arrived from Napoli in the January transfer window and there will be question
