Games are scheduled to resume on July 30.Any player who tests positive faces a two-week quarantine period before he can be cleared to return to the court. A physician will determine when the isolation period is over, a process that will include a cardiac screening.Matthew Martinez, a consulting cardiologist for the NBA Players Association, stressed to ESPN that players will need time to rest after a positive test because doctors believe “the amount of cardiac damage can increase if you continue to exercise in the face of an active infection.”The effects of COVID-19 on cardiac health, including myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), are “not yet fully understood,” the league wrote in a memo sent to teams on June 15, per ESPN.According to the American College of Cardiology’s Sports and Exercise Cardiology Council, “Acute cardiac injury … occur(s) in up to 22 percent of hospitalized patients with COVID-19, which is significantly higher compared with the approximately 1 percent prevalence in non-COVID-19 acute viral infections.”Myocarditis “could result in cardiac dysfunction, arrhythmias, and death,” the council said.John DiFiori, the NBA’s director of sports medicine, told ESPN he would urge any player who is diagnosed with the coronavirus to follow a physician’s advice for managing the illness.“If you don’t feel well, don’t try to push through this,” Fiori said. “This is not a situation where anyone, whether you’re an athlete or not, should try to push through or minimize symptoms or try to ignore symptoms and try to push through to try to continue to work or continue to play a sport.” Cricket Cricket WTC Final LIVE, IND vs NZ: Cheteshwar Pujara’s poor run continues, scores 8 off 54 in crucial match against Kiwis Cricket IND VS NZ Live: New Zealand’s body attack on India, Cheteshwar Pujara & Shubman Gill get hit on helmetslast_img read more

Stay or go? Foden frustrated while Mount and Sancho soar

first_imgWhile Jadon Sancho and Mason Mount are training at St George’s Park with England’s senior squad, more than 2,000 miles away in the Turkish city of Izmet, Phil Foden will be in action for the Under-21s.The three youngsters – who are seen as the long-term future of Gareth Southgate’s attack-minded era – have so far taken a different route with their burgeoning careers.Sancho swapped Manchester City’s youth team for Borussia Dortmund and the 19-year-old has gone from a winger of huge promise to one of the most exciting young talents in Europe, linked with £100 million ($123m) moves to Manchester United and Barcelona, and prompting plenty of copycat moves to the continent.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? Chelsea midfielder Mount, meanwhile, opted for a loan move to Championship side Derby County, where he established himself in a promotion push that only faltered in the play-off final before returning to Stamford Bridge this summer to start four Premier League matches in a row under Frank Lampard.Foden, on the other hand, has stayed at City, content to remain under the careful tutelage of Pep Guardiola, who has described him as “the most talented player I have ever seen in my career as a manager” yet afforded his protege just 10 minutes of game time so far this season.England have hopes that this emerging generation of talented footballers will be able to establish themselves at club level, earlier rather than later, with a view to mounting a serious bid to win Qatar 2022.Mount, Foden and Tottenham full-back Ryan Sessegnon were taken to Moscow by Nike in 2018 to get a flavour of what the World Cup is all about.Since then, Sancho has established himself as a regular for England and Mount has earned selection for this week’s European Championship qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo.However, Foden, who is a year behind Mount in his development, is still waiting for a call, even though Southgate is a fan of the Stockport-born midfielder.Guardiola has said that the teenager will get more game time this season, while insisting that Foden needs to be patient.Phil Foden Manchester City PSA brief cameo on the opening day of the season against West Ham after an 89th-minute appearance in the Community Shield would test most players’ patience.But Foden has put his trust in the former Barcelona manager, who guided Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique and Lionel Messi to greatness.Foden signed a new five-year contract just when some were beginning to question whether he should follow Sancho to the continent, and ended up making 26 appearances last season.Potential loan moves to Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, last season, and Roma, this summer, were rejected out of hand, with Guardiola and his assistants viewing Foden as a prominent member of the first-team squad.But, as Guardiola himself admits, he has a fight to earn starts with the quality of David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan ahead of him in the midfield pecking order.The City boss doesn’t hand out game time for the sake of it.Even when City were leading 3-0 against Brighton on Saturday, Guardiola used the more senior Bernardo as his final substitute and the Portuguese midfielder then proceeded to score a fourth goal 17 seconds later.Foden’s chance will come, though.Serious injuries to Leroy Sane and Aymeric Laporte will stretch the depth of City’s squad and starters will rotate more often after the international break when they start to play twice a week on a regular basis.Foden is seen as the long-term heir to David Silva, who is leaving at the end of the season after 10 years at the club.The Spaniard has always been an approachable player to youngsters at the Etihad Academy and has taken his time to help Foden on the training ground, giving him advice about his movement and awareness on the pitch to aid his succession.But Silva rediscovering his very best form in the early part of the season has actually hindered Foden’s first-team chances.Phil Foden Manchester City PSSilva struggled to make an impact in the second half of the last campaign and Foden was picked ahead of him for the crucial 1-0 victory over Tottenham.But Silva  has barely put a foot wrong this term, contributing four assists in the opening four matches.He is desperate to end his Etihad career as a Champions League winner – adding the only medal missing from an incredible collection of silverware.Guardiola picks his side on merit and while Silva continues to be so influential, he will be difficult to drop.Foden has so far shown no frustration at seeing the likes of Sancho and Mount prosper elsewhere and is happy being close to his family and at the club he supported as a boy.And Guardiola insists his time will come.“[The young players] have to fight and be patient and work and work and don’t complain too much,” Guardiola said before the Brighton victory.“The time is coming and the moment is coming, to show all of them – the moment to say, ‘I am here and ready.’“He’s going to the Under-21s and he is going to play. Everything is in the right position.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

Cheshire Police found guilty of discrimination after rejecting white heterosexual man for

Mr Furlong, whose father is a serving detective inspector at Cheshire Police, claimed he was told after the interview stage “it was refreshing to meet someone as well prepared as yourself” and that he “could not… A police force has been found guilty of discrimination after it refused to give a potential recruit a job because he was a white heterosexual man.  The force rejected him while in the midst of a diversity drive after a report found in 2015 it was one of only four constabularies to have no black officers. Cheshire Police are believed to be the first organisation in the UK to be found guilty of using positive action to discriminate by deciding to shun 25-year-old Matthew Furlong in 2017.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?
