Sports Headlines: James Harden Traded, & Marcus Lattimore Injury Update


On a day primarily focused on football, the NBA has stolen the spotlight as the Oklahoma City Thunder have agreed to trade all-Star shooting guard James Harden, as well as Daequan Cook, Lazar Hayward and Cole Aldrich to the Houston Rockets for Jeremy Lamb, Kevin Martin and two first-round draft picks

 

In college football action, the South Carolina Gamecocks out lasted the Tennessee Volunteers in a 38-35 shootout, but the biggest story of the game was that of All-American runningback Marcus Lattimore, who suffered a gruesome leg injury that is now being reported as  a broken femur, broken patella, torn ACL, torn MCL, torn PCL, & torn LCL.

 

In some more positive news, it appears Redskins linebacker London Fletcher has a good chance to extend his streak of never missing a game over his 15 NFL seasons, despite suffering from concussion-like symptoms, he will be listed as questionable to face the Steelers on Sunday as he has dealt with concussion-like symptoms.
