Indiana Pacers star Paul George suffered an apparently severe lower right leg injury on Friday in a United States intra-squad scrimmage in preparation for the Basketball World Cup. The injury was bad enough that the exhibition at the Thomas and Mack Center was immediately halted and George was quickly hospitalized. George landed and his leg buckled horribly near the basket stanchion after he had fouled James Harden on a drive early in the fourth quarter. Harden immediately doubled over in shock upon seeing the injury to his US team-mate and medical personnel, US coach Mike Krzyzewski and members of George's family attending the game moved to comfort the stricken player.
Manny Roth, a colorful club owner in Greenwich Village whose Cafe Wha? and its basement level stage was a rite of passage in the 1960s for Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen and many others, has died. He was 94.
