‘Grey’s Anatomy’: Alex Karev farewell episode to air Thursday
Next Thursday's episode will be the official sendoff, as announced with an emotional trailer at the end of this week's episode. Justin Chambers' final episode on Grey's Anatomy airs Thursday at 9 p.m.

The 22-year-old American, the 11th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft, will miss Wednesday's Hornets game against NY and will not be reinstated until he returns to compliance with the rules. So if he's suspended for the rest of the season (25 games), he'd lose $915,545.

Monk, 22, is averaging 10.3 points in 55 games this season, his third with the Hornets. However, he had played well lately, scoring 17.0 PPG on.457/.350/.851 shooting in his last 13 games (27.9 MPG). "However, we are committed to supporting Malik during this time", the statement said. The third-year reserve out of Kentucky has played in 191 games during his National Basketball Association career, averaging 8.6 points per game on 39.5 percent shooting from the field. "It's a situation that, all of us face different things in life". It's my belief knowing Malik that he will respond the right way and he has my full support, he has our organization's full support. "I look forward to talking to him, but that's where we're at today".
