theScore esports Daily is a once-a-day briefing covering the top news stories from around the world of esports.

Jankos reportedly set to sign with G2

Former H2k-Gaming jungler Marcin "Jankos" Jankowski is reportedly set to sign with G2 Esports, according to a report from ESPN's Jacob Wolf.

Jankos is not currently signed to H2K, though Wolf reports the organization still has right of first refusal on any other team trying to sign him. Jankos would be replacing Kim "Trick" Gang-yun in G2's jungle.

During the off-season, G2 lost star AD carry Jesper "Zven" Svenningsen and support Alfonso "Mithy" Aguirre-Rodriguez, who both left the team to join Team SoloMid in the NA LCS.

"We are very excited to announce that we will be completing our roster with a world-class support player," read a statement posted to SuperMassive's Twitter. "Please welcome SUP SnowFlower!"

FaZe Clan, Misfits, SK Gaming, Fnatic, OpTic Gaming and HellRaisers have all punched their tickets to the ESL Pro League Finals bracket stage.

FaZe walked away from Group A with a commanding 4-1 record, followed closely by HellRaisers and Fnatic, the only team to beat Niko and company so far in Odense.

Quarterfinals start this Friday, with OpTic taking on Fnatic and HellRiasers against Sean Gares' Misfits. SK and FaZe wait in the wings, playing the winners in best-of-three semifinals on Saturday.

Sheever: Lymph nodes are clean

Dota 2 caster and host Jorien "Sheever" van der Heijden is closer to being safe and healthy after a months-long cancer scare.

This morning, Sheever tweeted that her lymph nodes are clean, which leaves her with just five weeks of radiotherapy. Sheever has missed a few events while she's been hospitalized, but has recently been appearing at DreamLeague and other tournaments.

Sheever says she won't be back in action full time just yet, but the "worst part is done."
