Illness onset dates range from May 30 to Jun 14, the CDC reported. Nineteen patients have been hospitalized, and one developed hemolytic uremic syndrome, a sometimes-fatal kidney condition. No deaths have been reported.

LaVine scores 31 points, Bulls rally to beat Clippers

first_imgTIP-INSClippers guard Shamet returned after missing a month (17 games) with a high right ankle sprain. He finished with 11 points in 21 minutes.Bulls forward and Mission Viejo alumnus Chandler Hutchison (right shoulder sprain) missed his ninth straight game. He hasn’t been cleared for contact and there is no timetable for his return. “He shot earlier today, he got some three balls up, so that was encouraging,” coach Jim Boylen said.QUICK TURNAROUNDThe start of Friday night’s game at Minnesota was pushed back nearly two hours to accommodate national TV, so the Clippers had less recovery time than a typical back-to-back.“Our league has been great, but today’s game, in my opinion, should not be played or happen,” coach Doc Rivers said. “When you play basically an 8:45 p.m. game and then have to fly and get to your hotel at 3:45 and go to bed at 5, you probably shouldn’t be playing basketball the next day — especially if they’re talking about our health.”UP NEXTClippers: Host Phoenix on Tuesday night.
