  • NBA-National Basketball Association roundup (Reuters)

    Next season might be Kobe Bryant's last, but the Los Angeles Lakers' guard told Yahoo Sports that he remains undecided about retirement. Players I have spoken to say, 'Kobe you will know.'" Bryant, 36, said he is rehabbing from injuries as he prepares for the 2015-16 season, the final year on his contract which calls for a $25 million salary. Bryant said recently he is prepared to play more minutes at forward on the young roster.

  • Mad Dash: Klay Thompson's brother gets MLB promotion (NBC on Yahoo Sports)

    It's nothing short of remarkable when a family produces a world class athlete who can play at the highest level in his sport, but what about when a father and his three sons all reach the highest professional ranks? That's the case for the family of Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson, whose father Mychal played 13 seasons in the NBA, his brother Mychel played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and now another brother, Trayce, just got the call from the Chicago White Sox . Trayce was hitting .260 with 13 home runs at Triple-A Charlotte before getting the call, and was a second round pick out of high school in 2009. While he didn't get into the game for the White Sox on Monday night, he'll make his big league debut during his stint, making the Thompsons one of the most ridiculously accomplished athletic families we can think of, along with the Gronkowski brothers, the Molina Brothers, and the Jones brothers. That's fantastic company, and adds to a pretty cool year for Klay, who won the NBA title with the Warriors in June.  Encountering wildlife while at a golf course should be expected, but golfers don't often have to deal with the animals interfering with their game. Daniel Popovic pulled out his camera phone in Melbourne, Australia, when a kangaroo hopped onto a practice green and started sparring with the flags . OK, we'll admit it, we wish there were kangaroos on golf courses over here.  If you're at all concerned about Braxton Miller's ability to transition from quarterback to receiver at Ohio State this year, his latest Instagram video suggests you shouldn't worry too much . The former signal-caller appears to have caught five balls in a row, held on to them, and then caught a sixth with one hand without dropping the rest. It's not the same as a linebacker crashing down on him while he tries to make a catch, but it sure seems like he's got plenty of ability for the position.  - - - - - - - The Yahoo Sports Mad Dash is a roundup of the morning's trending stories from across the sports landscape.

  • Russia suspended from basketball by FIBA for infighting (The Associated Press)

    The Russian Basketball Federation was suspended Wednesday by FIBA, meaning it could miss the European Championship that doubles as an Olympic qualifier. An earlier court ruling overturned the federation's 2013 presidential election result, in which Yulia Anikeeva defeated former WNBA player Svetlana Abrosimova, who alleged there were many breaches of election rules. The federation posted a letter on its website from FIBA, addressed to Anikeeva, saying Russia's suspension resulted from a lack of ''unity and stability'' at the federation.
