The Washington Nationals finished 2017 with a 97-65 record, winning the NL East for the second straight season and the third time in four years. But for the second straight season they also lost in the divisional series, falling in five games to the Chicago Cubs.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will likely be sidelined two to four weeks while recovering from his bruised left knee, sources confirmed to ESPN. Sources said the Rockets are calling agents about available point guards due to Paul's injury. One such point guard is Jameer Nelson, who cleared waivers on Friday, league sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes. The Rockets are among the teams to reach out to Nelson's representatives, sources said. Paul, a nine-time All-Star acquired in a trade with the LA Clippers in June, was originally injured when he banged knees with Memphis' Mario Chalmers in a preseason game. After sitting out the preseason finale, Paul started the season opener and played 33 minutes in Tuesday's 122-121 win over the Golden State Warriors. However, Paul was clearly hobbled during his four-point, eight-rebound, 11-assist performance, leading coach Mike D'Antoni to sit the star...
