The Toronto Raptors will shoot for their second straight win as they host the Philadelphia 76ers tonight. It's the first time the teams have met since the Sixers eliminated the Raptors in the first round of last season's N-B-A playoffs. Toronto is dealing with injuries to Scottie Barnes and Otto Porter Junior.


Edmonton is the lone Canadian N-H-L team in action tonight. The Oilers can rise above the .500 mark with a road victory in St. Louis. The Blues blanked the Oilers 2-0 on Saturday in Edmonton. Elsewhere, the New York Rangers host the New York Islanders and the Tampa Bay Lightning visit the Anaheim Ducks.


Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Boston Celtics star Jaylen Brown have terminated their associations with Donda Sports, the brand management agency owned by the artist formerly known as Kanye West. The two sports stars dropped the agency owned by the music mogul now known as Ye after his latest round of offensive and antisemitic remarks.


E-S-P-N has closed a deal to sell its majority stake in the X Games and Winter X Games. That marks the end of a nearly three-decade chapter during which the network helped propel snowboarding, skateboarding and other action sports out of the fringe and into the mainstream. Terms of the sale to the private equity firm M-S-P Sports Capital were not released.


Manchester United defender Raphael Varane (verr-raan) has been ruled out until the World Cup after sustaining a hamstring injury. But United manager Erik ten Hag said today the France international could still play a part in Qatar for his country. Varane was in tears after getting hurt in his team's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Saturday as he feared his World Cup chances had been ended. That may not be the case. Ten Hag says it depends on “how his rehab will develop.”


A Spanish man walking from Madrid to Doha for the World Cup is believed to be under arrest in Iran where he went missing more than three weeks ago, his family said today. The parents of 41-year-old adventurer Santiago Sanchez reported him missing on October 17th. They said Spain's police and diplomats were helping the family.
