The NBA schedule will be released this week, but it’s being reported that the Christmas Day lineup will feature a marquee matchup between the Lakers and Warriors.

Carmelo Anthony has reportedly reached a verbal agreement on a deal with the Houston Rockets. The Thunder traded Anthony to the Hawks last month, but he cleared waivers and became a free agent.

Philadelphia 76ers rookie Zhaire Smith suffered a fracture in his left foot during a developmental camp in Las Vegas on Monday and will undergo surgery. It’s not yet known how much time Smith might miss.

WNBA Game Forfeited

For the first time in WNBA history, a team has forfeited a game. The league ruled that Las Vegas will be charged with a loss for its game against Washington last Friday.

Because of delays, the Aces didn’t arrive in Washington until about four hours before tipoff and decided not to play because of concerns about their health and safety after 26 hours of travel.
