Washington Nationals sued by ex-employees over vaccine firing
The Washington Nationals are being sued by two former employees who were fired for refusing to comply with the team’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. Lawrence (Larry) Pardo and Brad Holman were pitching coaches in the Nats’ organization. The two refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine for religious reasons and were fired by the Nats as a result. The team instituted a mandate on Aug. 12 that went into effect on Sept. 10, leading to the firing of both men.Now the two have filed a lawsuit against the club, TMZ Sports reports.

NBA Power Rankings: Suns keep winning, can't unseat Warriors; Lakers continue to fall; Wolves make big leap
This week had some of the steepest risers and fallers of the season thus farThe Phoenix Suns have won 14 straight games, and they're still not the No. 1 team in this week's Power Rankings. They have every right to be upset, and if I were a member of the organization I'd probably be composing a sharply worded Twitter draft right now, but the Golden State Warriors, who have won five in a row and lost just two games all season, have just been too good to unseat.
Cam Reddish and Bogdan Bogdanovic will both get MRIs, per Nate McMillan. – 9:54 PMChris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Camped in Calais, migrants renew resolve to try for England
CALAIS, France (AP) — At the makeshift camps in France near Calais and Dunkirk, migrants are digging in, waiting for their chance to make a dash across the English Channel despite the deaths of at least 27 people this week when their boat sank a few miles (kilometers) from the French coast. Police have stepped up patrols in recent days and the weather has worsened, making this a bad time to attempt a crossing. But most migrants say the tragedy won’t prevent them from climbing into a flimsy inflatable boat packed with up to 50 people in hopes of reaching Britain.
Hawks’ seven-game win streak is over, as the Knicks win 99-90. More importantly, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Cam Reddish left early with injuries. Can’t afford any long-term injuries to both.
Young: 33/4/7, 10/22 FG

Senate should confirm Biden picks for top multilateral postings
If Republicans agree China is openly exploiting the multilateral system to advance its interests, then the Senate should confirm key nominations.There are many high-level openings that the Biden administration is seeking to fill. These include posts within the United Nations system and multilateral development banks (MDBs). These vacancies sound trivial - and many of these agencies most people in Washington have never heard of - but these seemingly obscure roles are quite important.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (right ankle sprain) will not return. – 8:44 PMChris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Preview: Hawks set to play Pacers after extended break
The Atlanta Hawks play the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. The Hawks will be on the road for this one, looking to improve on their 3-8 road record. Atlanta saw their seven-game winning streak come to an end when they lost to the New York Knicks on Saturday. They will be looking to bounce back after a three-day break. Indiana has lost three of their last four games, but they are 6-4 on their home floor so far this season. The Pacers are just 9-14 overall this season, but their lead guard Malcolm Brogdon, an Atlanta native, did miss some time early in the season.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (right ankle sprain) has been ruled out for the rest of the game – 8:38 PMSarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
