Wizards to Begin Hosting Fans on April 21, Will Honor Front-Line Workers
04/12/2021 3:12pm

Wizards to begin hosting fans on April 21 originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonThe Wizards will begin hosting fans at home games next week when they take on the Golden State Warriors on April 21, the team announced on Monday, just days after they were given clearance by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowsers office to do so.Fans have not attended a Wizards home game since March 10, 2020, the day before the league shut down due to the coronavirus. But now, with a 10 percent capacity limit and a wide range of safety precautions, about 2,100 fans will be let through the turnstiles very soon.Our fans fuel everything our players and teams accomplish, and they have been deeply missed, Wizards chairman Ted Leonsis said in a statement. Our country has been through great stress over the past year, and it has taken a mental toll on all of us, but we know that sports are a great healer. So, we thank Mayor Bowser and her team for approving our vigorous health and safety plan so that some of our passionate Caps and Wizards fans may gather with the first games being attended by some of our incredible first responders and frontline COVID-19 workers.As Leonsis noted, the Wizards will invite and honor hundreds of front-line workers at their first game on April 21. Priority for other tickets will be given to season ticket holders and partners of Monumental Sports and Entertainment. They say information about tickets for the general public will be relased at a later date. For now, you can go here for more details.Fans attending Wizards games will have to adhere to strict protocols relating to the coronavirus. Everyone will be required to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose at all times other than when eating and drinking. Fans will also go through health screenings upon arrival and will be seated in pods of 1-to-4 people spread out around the arena for social distancing.Its just a start, but a long time coming for the Wizards, who have not had fans at their home games in 13 months.

Scott Brooks Sees Bradley Beal Competing for MVP Awards Soon
04/12/2021 2:35pm

Brooks sees Bradley Beal competing for MVP awards soon originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonBradley Beal was an All-Star starter and leads the NBA in scoring this season, but Wizards head coach Scott Brooks sees him reaching another level soon.Brooks said over the weekend he believes Beal will be competing for the NBAs top individual award in the next few years.Hes one of the best players in the league. In the next year or two, hes going to be an MVP-type player, Brooks said.Beal, 27, may win the scoring title and make All-NBA this season if he continues on his current course with averages of 30.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. But it is unlikely he will take home the MVP award given how many deserving candidates there are onteams with better records than the Wizards.The NBAs MVP award race is still fairly wide open, but guys like Nikola Jokic of the Nuggets, James Harden of the Nets and Joel Embiid of the Sixers are considered among the favorites. Beals name is rarely mentioned, likely all due to the Wizards 19-33 record.In order for Beal to become a legitimate MVP candidate, it may come down to the Wizards just winning more games in the coming years. If he was leading the league in scoring while playing for the third-best team in the East rather than the 13th-best, it may be a different story.Whether that is fair or not, its the way it often goes in the NBA where team records are factored into individual awards. The same generally goes for other sports, though you do see exceptions like the famous case of Alex Rodriguez winning the 2003American League MVP award while playing for thelast-place Texas Rangers.As Brooks notes, Beal is still an improving player, even though hes already made three All-Star teams. That should probably be kept in mind in any debate the next time his name shows up in trade rumors.For now, Beal is just trying to get back on the floor as the Wizardspursuea playoff spot with only 20 games remaining in their 2020-21 season. And speaking of Beals future, Brooks said the team does not believe the nerve issue hes recently dealt with in his hip will be a long-term concern.He wants to play. The guy loves to play. Were never going to put him out there if things are really going to injure him, Brooks said.The trainers tell me stuff like that comes and goes. Sometimes youre going to have good moments and good weeks. Sometimes you come back in a day or two. You have to deal with it, then eventually it dissipates and it goes away.Beal is also currently dealing with back tightness, which was the reason cited for him missing Saturdays loss against the Suns. He is considered probablefor Mondays matchup with the Jazz.

Aaron Rodgers Interested in Being Permanent ‘Jeopardy!' Host
04/12/2021 2:19pm

Aaron Rodgers interested in being permanent Jeopardy host originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has filmed two weeks worth of episodes as a guest host on Jeopardy and hes already looking to get back on the podium.NBC Sports Peter King spoke with Jeopardy executive producer Mike Richards about Rodgers two-week stint hosting the show. The episodes were filmed over three days in February, after which the reigning NFL MVP told Richards that he would be interested in sticking as a permanent host.Its the ultimate compliment to Alex Trebek and to the franchise that Aaron is that forward with his thoughts, and so complimentary of the show, Richards said, as quoted by King. What I find fascinating about Aaronis his second career could be better than his first.Aaron Rodgers is a guest host on Jeopardy tonight via Jeopardypic.twitter.com/bYIt7yy3k0 Bleacher Report BleacherReport April 5, 2021Richards believes Rodgers could host the show even as he finishes out his football career. The production crew needs just 46 days to record a years worth of shows, giving Rodgers ample opportunity to fit the side job in during his offseasons.Sony would have many applicants to consider before determining a new permanent host. But there is at least interest from Rodgers side, which leaves open the possibility that the future Hall of Famer remains on the television sets of millions even after his NFL career comes to a close.

Bruins Land Taylor Hall in 3-Player Trade With Buffalo
04/12/2021 4:02am

Bruins land Taylor Hall in 3-player trade with Buffalo originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonSunday night was a bad night for the Boston Bruins on the ice as they fell 8-1 to the Capitals.Things went much better off the ice as the Bruins reportedlylanded Taylor Hall in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres. The Bruins received both Hall and forward Curtis Lazar in exchange for a second-round draft pickand forwardAnders Bjork, according to multiple reports. Buffalo retained 50 of Halls salary in the trade.Hall was considered to be among the top players available at the trade deadline despite a tough season in which he has scored justtwo goals and 17 assists in 37 games for the Sabres.The former Hart Trophy winner will look to jump-start his season on a more competitive team in Boston. Hall will provide the Bruins with some much-needed offensive depth to take the pressure off its top line of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak.Boston also acquired defenseman Mike Reilly for a third-round draft pick on Sunday in a separate deal with the Ottawa Senators.The Bruins remain in solid position for the playoffs in the East with a four-point lead over both the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers with two games in hand, but Boston has been dealing with a number of injuries and has been fading from the top three.With the Capitals, Islanders and Penguins separating themselves from the pack, the Bruins elected to pull off two trades to shore up their roster at both ends of the ice.With a firm hold of fourth place, Hall and Co. appears to be what now awaits the winner of the East Division in the first round of the playoffs.
