Missouri’s count of football players who will miss the team’s season-opener against Alabama on Sept. 26 due to COVID-19 protocols is up to 12, Tigers coach Elijah Drinkwitz said Wednesday. Though not all 12 have necessarily tested positive for the coronavirus, the SEC mandates a 14-day quarantine for those those who have been in “prolonged close contact” with someone who tests positive.

An instance of “prolonged close contact” is when a person has spent 15 minutes within 6 feet of someone in the two days prior to their development of COVID-19 symptoms, according to the SEC’s medical guidelines.

“We’ve got to make due,” Drinkwitz said. “We’re going to tee it up the 26th, and everybody in Missouri is going to expect that we’re prepared. So we’re going to get ready.”

The NBA announced the players selected to the 2019-20 All-NBA teams Wednesday afternoon, with Bucks big man Giannis Antetokounmpo and Lakers forward LeBron James leading the way in votes. Both players were the only unanimous first-team selections, and joining them on the first team are Rockets guard James Harden, Mavericks guard Luka Doncic and Lakers big man Anthony Davis.

James’ selection is the 16th All-NBA selection of his storied NBA career, and he has now earned the most All-NBA selections of all time. LeBron was previously tied with the likes of Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with 15 All-NBA nominations. In addition, James’ All-NBA First Team selection was the 13th of his career and also sets a new NBA record in that category.

Tee times for the 2020 U.S. Open at Winged Foot are out, and THE FIRST OF A LOADED FIELD OF PGA GOLFERS HAVE MADE THEIR WAY TO THE TEE BOX AT FIRST HOLE….there are some absolutely loaded groups for what COULD be the toughest test of golf this season in southern New York. The USGA always creates interesting trios, and that’s true again this year with most of the best players in the world in attendance at the season’s first major championship.

The threesome of Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas and Collin Morikawa headlines the groups — how often do you think Tiger has been the third-best ball-striker in his group? — but it’s far from the only tee time worth keeping an eye on this week. Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott and Justin Rose will play together on Thursday and Friday as well. So will Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson. World No. 2 Jon Rahm is grouped with Phil Mickelson and Paul Casey.
