The hip injury that forced Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas to miss the final three games of the Eastern Conference Finals will not require surgery. Danny Ainge, Celtics president of basketball operations, announced Wednesday that surgery has been ruled out for Thomas. "Isaiah is making good progress," Ainge said, per Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe. "He's out on the court; he's shooting. He's full-speed ahead on the stationary bike and working in the swimming pool. He's progressing nicely."
As the New York Knicks continue to search for a trade involving Carmelo Anthony, the 10-time All-Star would prefer a deal to the Houston Rockets. ESPN.com's Ian Begley reported "landing in Houston remained his [Anthony's] top priority over all other potential destinations, including the Cleveland Cavaliers." The Rockets have reportedly been atop Anthony's wish list throughout this offseason.
Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times reported Tuesday that the Milwaukee Bucks are shopping centers Greg Monroe and John Henson on the trade market. Both players had down years in 2016-17, and have seen their usage and production drop in recent seasons. After serving almost exclusively as a starter in his first six NBA seasons with the Detroit Pistons and Bucks, Monroe didn't start a single game in 2016-17.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
