Scott Olson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- What's in store for fantasy sports in New York?

On Wednesday, DraftKings and Fan Duel will head to court to fight for the industry to continue operation in the state as New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman tries to shut them down.

According to Schneiderman, both fantasy websites are misleading the public with deceptive advertising and violating the state's gambling laws, while FanDuel and Draftkings argue that it's not gambling, but a game of skill.

New York law states gambling as when a person "stakes or risks something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance or a future contingent even not under his control or influence, upon an agreement or understanding that he will receive something of value in the event of a certain outcome."

If the judge decides to keep fantasy sports out of New York, it would affect more than 600,000 players based in the state who spent at least $200 million in entry fees in 2015, according to ESPN.

George Gojkovich/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- Wallace Gilberry knows the true meaning of the holidays.

The Cincinnati Bengals defensive end was seen at Target recently where an Instagram user said he was buying a young family he didn't know a PlayStation 4 and a variety of games.

"The kids and dad were going crazy and the mom was in tears," said the post. "I was big fan of him before but I'm a even bigger fan now. What a stand up dude."

The user later said he approached Gilberry about what he did for the family and he said, "Everyone needs to be blessed."

Phil Ellsworth/ESPN Images(CLEVELAND) -- After social media posts surfaced allegedly showing Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel partying over the weekend, "Johnny Football" is now going to serve as a third option and Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback.

Browns coach Mike Pettine announced the decision in a statement on Tuesday.

“Everyone in this organization wants what is best for Johnny just like we do for every player in our locker room," Pettine said. "I’m especially disappointed in his actions and behavior because he has been working very hard. The improvements from last year to this year have been tremendous but he still has to consistently demonstrate that he has gained a good understanding of what it takes to be successful at the quarterback position on this level. It goes well beyond the field. We are going to continue to support him in every way possible, but at this point, we’ve decided it’s best to go with Josh as the starter going forward.”

Manziel has been in similar situations in the past and he spent 10 weeks in a treatment facility during the offseason for undisclosed reasons.

Last month, Manziel was in the news after witnesses reported him driving dangerously and his girlfriend said he had gotten physical with her.

Just last week, the NFL announced Manziel would not face discipline for the incident.

"It's a little easier to handle when it's just a one-time occurrence, but when behavior repeats, not just him but with anybody, it's certainly a cause for concern."

"You have a vision of what you want the team to look like, how you want them to handle themselves when they're out of the building. We talk a lot about it ... so when things like this happen -- and not just him, but just in general -- any team when you have incidents like that [where] a guy knows that he represents more than himself and has issues off the field, it is frustrating," Pettine added.

Rocky Widner/Getty Images(CLEVELAND)  -- LeBron James joined Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson in an elite ranking on Monday. They are the only players in the NBA's history to rank in the top 25 in both points and assists, ESPN reports.

James assisted Kevin Love for a 3-pointer with five minutes left in the second quarter, which boosted him into the elite company.

James said he didn't want the accomplishment to spark a conversation comparing his career with Oscar Robertson's.

"I think what we get caught up in, in our league too much, is trying to compare greats to greats, instead of just accepting and acknowledging and saying, 'Wow, these are just great players,'" James said after the Cavaliers' win over the Orlando Magic.

Allen Kee/ESPN Images(PITTSBURGH) -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats donated 35 percent of his 2015 salary to a small college in Northern Virginia, ESPN reports.

Moats is paying homage to his alma mater, James Madison University, where he met his wife and earned a political science degree while playing football.

"I wanted to make a larger impact," Moats said. "Me and my family are comfortable with it."

The 300,000 dollars will go to improving the school's  Convocation Center, the basketball arena which also hosts local events and it will help create a scholarship fund for studio arts, according to ESPN.

Moats said the school helped form him and that he and his family found a budget that works for them.

"It definitely puts a smile on my face," Moats said. "I’ve been on the opposite of that, where you're trying to scrounge enough change together to buy from the dollar menu, wondering when the Pell Grant money will kick in. So, [the donation] was a good amount, but when you're paying it forward, it will work out."

Denis Poroy/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers are making history with a new manager.

On Monday, the Dodgers announced they were hiring former outfielder Dave Roberts as the new manager, becoming the team's first minority manager.

The 43-year-old is of African-American and Japanese descent and played for the Dodgers from 2002-2004.

Roberts will replace Don Mattingly who recently signed a four-year contract to manage the Miami Marlins and who was with the Dodgers for the last five seasons.

The team made history in 1947 when Jackie Robinson became the first African-American baseball player to play in the major leagues, at that time for the Brooklyn Dodgers, when he was started on first base.

AAron Ontiveroz/The Denver Post via Getty Images(DENVER) -- Brock Osweiler will be the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos in the game against the New England Patriots on Sunday night.

Peyton Manning is sitting out for the second week in a row as he continues to suffer from a plantar fascia injury to his left foot.

The announcement was made Monday afternoon by Broncos coach Gary Kubiak who said Manning is consulting with orthopedic foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to ESPN.

The coach said Manning is "doing everything he can possibly do to get himself healthy and get himself back on the field."

According to ESPN, Kubiak said Osweiler is not a permanent replacement for the season and Manning will be put back in when he is healthy again.

The Broncos, 8-2, will play the Patriots, 9-0, Sunday night in Denver.

Ben Solomon/ESPN Images(OKLAHOMA CITY) -- Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant is expected to return to the lineup this week, ESPN reports.

Durant missed the past six games after a strained left hamstring on Nov. 10 during the first half of a Thunder win over the Washington Wizards.

It was the first hamstring injury of Durant's career but he underwent three foot surgeries last season, limiting him to 27 games, according to ESPN.

In its six games without Durant, Oklahoma City is 3-3.

League sources tell ESPN a specific date has yet to be chosen.
