🏀Basketball: While the WNBA deals with drama in Atlanta, there could be some spicy international affairs on the horizon. LA Spark Nneka Ogwumike was controversially left off the U.S. Olympic roster last month, but she was recently listed on Nigeria’s provisional roster, along with her sisters Chiney (who also plays for the Sparks) and Erica. Sister, sister…sister.

⚾️Baseball: Just days after Trevor Bauer — who has been accused of sexual assault — was placed on paid *eye roll* administrative leave, the LA Dodgers canceled his bobblehead night (scheduled for August) and pulled his merchandise from the team store. 

His leave expires tomorrow, but manager Dave Roberts doesn’t expect Bauer to rejoin the team soon. Don’t let the door hit ya.
