Lance Stephenson has a chance to make the Pelicans now.

"We have to make judgments on the individual players and we're not always going to be right", told Grossi "But in this particular case, we just didn't feel it was necessarily the right bet to make for us at this time".
Carolina tight end Greg Olsen said the officials seem to forget that despite his size, Newton is quarterback and should be protected like a quarterback .

Bolen's mother, Jen, could not be reached to comment on Thursday, but she told the Appleton Post Crescent in July she had reluctantly accepted her daughter's decision to end her life.
