The Wizards held their first day of 2017-18 training camp on Tuesday on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Va. Here’s what you need to know…

Robinson is injured

The NBA career of Wizards’ forward Devin Robinson did not get off to a great start. He has an unspecified foot injury that is expected to sideline him for the foreseeable future. Robinson wasn’t walking with a limp, but sat out of practice and Brooks said the rookie does not have a timetable to return.

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Convinced no one outside their locker room gave them a chance to beat the Oakland Raiders, the Washington Redskins put together the kind of complete performance that made them worthy of the prime-time spotlight.

Kirk Cousins threw for 365 yards and three touchdowns, Chris Thompson had 188 all-purpose yards and a score and the Redskins sacked Derek Carr four times, forced three turnovers and held the Raiders to 128 yards in a dominating 27-10 victory on Sunday night.

“We wanted to show everybody what the Washington Redskins really could do because everybody didn’t give us a heck of a chance,” cornerback Josh Norman said. “Our boys showed up and they played some heck of a ball tonight and I can’t be more proud of them.”

Cousins was a spectacular 25 of 30, including TD passes to Thompson, Vernon Davis and a 52-yarder to Josh Doctson. Thompson had 150 yards receiving and 38 yards rushing, joining Jamaal Charles as the only running backs to put up 150 yards receiving against the Raiders (2-1) since they moved to Oakland in 1995.

“It’s just on us as running backs and receivers, offensive line, just basically beating our matchups and winning our matchups and Kirk, he’s going to get us the ball,” Thompson said. “I knew it was about time for him to have a big game, and he did a great job.”

Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree

Sunday

Raiders/REDSKINS Over 54: With Derek Carr a healthy operative and given Oakland’s splendid brace of receivers, Jay Gruden’s left with scant choice but to try to outscore the Silver and Black at FedEx — not easy, given that the current state of Washington’s defense doesn’t suggest it’ll able to shut down Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper. Double-check the degree of availability of Washington’s banged-up offensive skill people — but this should get there. Over, Rover, for one unit.

CLEMSON, S.C. – The 2018 Tiger baseball schedule features 33 home games, three games at Fluor Field in Greenville, S.C., and a game against Georgia at North Augusta, S.C. Clemson’s 56-game schedule begins February 16 at 4 p.m., with the first of three games against William & Mary at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. All game times for the 2018 season are subject to change.

The Tigers’ five ACC home series are against Georgia Tech, NC State, Boston College, Miami (Fla.) and Florida State, while Clemson’s ACC road series are at Louisville, Notre Dame, Wake Forest, Virginia and Pittsburgh. The Tigers do not play Duke, North Carolina and Virginia Tech during the regular season.

Clemson opens the season with an eight-game homestand at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. After hosting William & Mary for the first time since 2013 and Furman for a Feb. 20 midweek game, the Tigers face Dallas Baptist for the first time in a three-game series at home. The homestand concludes with a midweek game against Winthrop.

Downtown Boise stadium is starting to look like a reality.

Atlanta-based developer Greenstone Properties is inching closer to finalizing the purchase of 11 acres on the corner of Shoreline Drive and Americana Boulevard, where the stadium would go.

The city of Boise and urban renewal agency Capital City Development Corp. are building a case for the project. According to consultants they’ve hired, the south side of Downtown is ripe for a multisports stadium and event venue.

City Hall has commissioned Texas-based Conventions Sports and Leisure to study the feasibility of a Downtown stadium. CSL presented its study to the City Council on Tuesday.

The Detroit Tigers announced Wednesday that Dominican prospect Pedro Martinez Jr., the son of Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez, has inked with the franchise as part of the international signing period.

A source told ESPN Deportes that Martinez received a bonus of more than $750,000, in addition to student fees, for signing a minor league deal with the Tigers.

The announcement was made in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, during a news conference with the Martinez family and Tom Moore, director of international operations for the Tigers organization.

“This is a dream come true,” Martinez said. “I wanted to be a professional player and extend the Martinez dynasty. Being part of the Martinez family is not a pressure, it’s a motivation for me. Now I’m going to focus on my career and try to make a name for myself.”

Unlike his father and uncles Ramon and Jesus Martinez, who were all pitchers, the 17-year-old prospect is a third baseman, and scouts say he has good defense and contact batting and can hit for power.

“Obviously, the boy has physical talent, a great work ethic and a high level of education,” Moore said. “But also, he is the son of the great Pedro Martinez.”

Jackie Robinson at a team training camp in Vero Beach, Florida, 1949.

History can be made quietly. The crowd was an anemic 11,278 when the Pittsburgh Pirates fielded the first all-black and Latino starting team in Major League history on Sept. 1, 1971. And the press didn’t pay much attention to the lineup at Three Rivers Stadium that night, certainly nothing vaguely close to coverage of Jackie Robinson’s arrival with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.

Now it’s the Major Players themselves who seem to symbolize indifference—at least when it comes to the race-driven protests of pro football and basketball players over police brutality, Donald Trump and the national anthem. Catcher Bruce Maxwell of the Oakland A’s is the one MLB player to kneel.

Whether you are planning your championship lineups or you’re focusing on your upcoming fantasy chess boxing league, it never is too early to start planning for 2018.

Chances are you had your sights set on this season as well as next, especially if you’re in a keeper or dynasty league.

Though it is easy to say you’ll keep Mike Trout, Paul Goldschmidt or Clayton Kershaw, it’s the players who had the average draft position of 150 or above who outperformed expectations and will start for their teams next year who carry the most value, especially if you’re in a keeper league that rewards draft picks (or in-season moves) with a round value for the following season.

A young player like Baltimore’s Jonathan Schoop is the perfect example. After hitting .267 with 25 homers and 82 RBIs in 2016, he entered the season as the 22nd ranked second baseman and a 179.0 average draft position, according to FantasyPros.

Clemson pitcher Brooks Crawford is one of coach Monte Lee’s options to take on a bigger role this year with the pitching staff after serving as a reliever last season. The Tigers are currently in the thick of fall practice ahead of the spring season. File/Joshua S. Kelly/Special to The Post and Courier

CLEMSON — Charlie Barnes went to the Minnesota Twins organization, Alex Eubanks to the Texas Rangers, Pat Krall to the Oakland A’s and Tyler Jackson to the Seattle Mariners.

Those four pitchers made up the Clemson baseball team’s starting rotation in 2017. And all four are now gone for the 2018 season, leaving Clemson and Monte Lee’s club where they are now: starting from scratch.

“Baseball wise, it’s a very young group. We’ve got a lot of young position players and we’re not super experienced on the pitching side or the position player side, so the fall is very important for us to develop and see who can do what and watch these players grow,” said Lee, entering his third season at the helm of the program.

“I don’t know if I could have asked for a better beginning to the fall after Week 1 with just how the guys have bought in and are working hard and competing. It’s been really good so far, but we’ve got a long ways to go. We’ve got a lot of things that we still need to see and hopefully we’ll get those questions answered as we progress through the fall.”
