MIAMI (AP) — Good news for the Miami Dolphins: They won’t face New England tight end Rob Gronkowski on Monday night. It may not matter, however, given the disparity between the teams in the lopsided rivalry. The Patriots’ three-time All-Pro tight end will sit out in serving one-game suspension...

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Buried on the bench in Philly, Jahlil Okafor has a chance to prove in Brooklyn he’s not a bust. Okafor got his wish when the Philadelphia 76ers finally traded the No. 3 overall pick of the 2015 draft to the Brooklyn Nets. The deal ends the stalemate that had kept Okafor on...
