Dom Browns Big Break? No Timetable for Delmon Young to Play

Dom Browns Big Break? No Timetable for Delmon Young to Play

When the Phillies acquired Delmon Young, Ruben Amaro Jr. all
but grabbed the lineup card out of Charlie Manuel’s hand and wrote the 2012
ALCS MVP’s name in at right field himself. Domonic Brown may still have
something to say about that though, especially while Young isn’t even able to
get on the field.

Reports from spring training on Friday say Young, who
underwent microfracture surgery on his ankle in the offseason, has yet to be cleared
to play by doctors.
And when might the troubled-yet-talented righthander become
available? Maybe not even in time for opening day.

"The ankle is feeling good but
I'm not a doctor," Young said. "So when the doctor tells me when
everything will be ready, I'll be out there. I'm not going to put any date on

While Young is taking cuts in the cage and presumably does
whatever it takes to keep his weight down, Brown should be putting in some
serious work in right field. If the 25 year old impresses, he could finally
seize a job in the Phillies’ outfield, especially if Young’s absence becomes

Not much of a competition when only one player is competing.

It’s not a given Young will miss that much action, but
obviously the person with the most to gain from this is Dom Brown, who tells
reporters he would prefer to either sink or swim. Honestly, that
might be all he needs – an opportunity to go out and play every day. Looks like
he might get that chance for now at least.

We’re definitely rooting for Brown, who has already
experienced some of the highs and lows of playing in Philadelphia during his
short career. That said, Young's bat can help the Phillies if he’s healthy and in
shape, so we hope this situation doesn’t last very long.

Joel Embiid among several NBA players to participate in Basketball without Borders

Joel Embiid is giving back, joining several NBA players for the Basketball without Borders camp in Africa.

The NBA and FIBA will host 80 boys and girls ages 17 and under from 26 African countries, including Embiid's native Cameroon. It'll be the 15th edition of Basketball without Borders.

The camp will be held from Aug. 2 to Aug. 5 at the American International School of Johannesburg, culminating with the NBA Africa Game 2017 at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg, South Africa. The exhibition pits Team Africa, which includes players born in Africa and second-generation African players, against players from the rest of the world.

It's already been announced that Embiid is on the roster, but not playing, for Team Africa. Embiid, 23, missed the final 37 games of the 2016-17 season with a knee injury. His first NBA season came after he missed the first two years of his career with a foot injury.

There will be a heavy local vibe at BWB this year. Embiid will be joined by assistant coach Lloyd Pierce as well as former Sixers Bruce Bowen, Elton Brand and fellow Cameroonian Luc Mbah a Moute. Philly native Kyle Lowry and Chester native Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will also be there. 

Future Hall of Famer Dirk Nowitzki and budding star Kristaps Porzingis will also be among the players on hand.
