Nadal on whether he'll be ready for Wimbledon: "We're gonna work hard to be ready for Wimbledon. For the moment I need a couple of weeks with that, you know, with the immobilization. Then we're gonna do the treatment, and we hope the treatment works well. We expect to recover quick, to be ready for Wimbledon, no? But at this moment, you know, it's not a moment to talk about that. "It's just a moment to go day by day, to work hard. I hope to have a fast recovery."

A few notable quotes from Nadal's presser: "Every day [the pain in my wrist] is stronger, and I arrived here with a little bit of pain but something that I think I was able to manage. "Every day was a little bit worse. We tried to do all the treatments possible. Every single day we spent a lot of hours here working so hard to try to play. Yesterday I played with an injection on the wrist with anesthetic, just to sleep my wrist, to play."

DeMar DeRozan on playing in another pivotal Game 6 and hoping for force a third straight Game 7: "We didn't get this far without a reason... We've been resilient... We've been playing every other day for six weeks. We are mentally locked in... You know how to handle it, keep your emotions in check (for a big game)... I think the mood (in the locker room) is we are anxious to get back out there."

Vaughn, an assistant for the Rebels from 2008-11, reportedly engaged in an ACT fraud scheme for three recruits in 2010. He's also accused of helping provide impermissible benefits and lying to NCAA investigators.
