NEW YORK — Kyle Lowry hoped the pain in his right wrist would go away so he could join the new-look Toronto Raptors on the court.

Now the goal is just to get back with them before the playoffs.

The All-Star guard will have surgery Tuesday to remove loose bodies from his wrist, and the Raptors say they hope he can return for the postseason.

Lowry, who has missed the team’s two games since returning from the All-Star break, is expected to be out four to six weeks, a source told ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

Lowry took part in All-Star festivities in New Orleans, competing in the 3-point contest and playing the next night in the All-Star Game. But he said there’s been constant soreness since then and went Monday for a second opinion before the Raptors played the New York Knicks.

“It was one of those things where we didn’t know it was as serious as it was. That’s why you get second opinions as he did and we decided, he decided to have it done now hopefully to be able to have some time before the playoffs to get some games in,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said.

The procedure will be done in New York.

Lowry has often played hurt, but this time the pain was enough that he said he couldn’t move his wrist in a certain position. He and the Raptors believed it would improve — Casey said Sunday the swelling was down and Lowry was day-to-day — though the point guard said he wasn’t surprised by the diagnosis Monday.

“I’m not surprised by anything. It was a little sore, I didn’t know what it was,” Lowry said. “It’s not really something you can say I’m surprised. I had no idea what it would be. I thought some local treatment may have helped it but it just wasn’t getting any better.”

Lowry is second on the team with his average of 22.8 points and leads the Raptors with 6.9 assists per game.

The Raptors were tied for third in the Eastern Conference entering their game against the Knicks, and falling to fourth or fifth would likely mean a second-round series with Cleveland, the team that knocked Toronto out in last year’s Eastern Conference finals.

Lowry hopes to be fully recovered by then. In the meantime, he’ll keep supporting Cory Joseph and Delon Wright, as Casey said the Raptors, who added forwards Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker before the trade deadline, won’t look for outside help.

“I know they got to hold down the fort,” Lowry said. “Unfortunately right now I’m leaving my teammates out to dry and I wish I wasn’t, but this is the circumstance that we have. So for me, all I can do is help my teammates off the floor.”

The Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers officially completed buyouts Monday with Jose Calderon and Andrew Bogut, respectively, and both players were released.

League sources told ESPN that Calderon is planning to sign with the Golden State Warriors provided he clears waivers Wednesday at 5 p.m. ET.

Sources say Bogut, meanwhile, will speak to officials from the Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics before choosing his next team. He is also scheduled to clear waivers Wednesday at 5 p.m. ET.

ESPN reported Sunday that the Cavaliers are the favorites to land Bogut after signing the Australian big man’s former Dallas Mavericks teammate Deron Williams on Monday. Two Mavericks sources told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon that they expect Bogut to choose Cleveland after he talks to interested teams.


Sources: Bogut seeks 76ers exit to join Cavs
Andrew Bogut — recently traded from the Dallas Mavericks — is negotiating his release from the Philadelphia 76ers and seeks to join the Cleveland Cavaliers, sources told ESPN.
Because both Calderon and Bogut were waived before Wednesday, they retain playoff eligibility with their next team.

Also waived Monday were New York Knicks guard Brandon Jennings and Brooklyn Nets forward Luis Scola.

Some key figures within the Warriors’ organization preferred Jennings, but the process was already too far along with Calderon.

ESPN’s Chris Haynes contributed to this report.

Eli Manning Ole Miss NCAA College Jersey

Spurrier was asked by a student why he hadn’t won against Eli Manning, who was at Ole Miss, after going undefeated against Tennessee’s Peyton Manning. His reaction drew some laughs from the crowd. (Spurrier was off to the NFL by the time Eli Manning had started any games against Florida and got back into college football after the younger Manning entered the draft). “Eli? When did I coach against Eli?”

9. Midway during the event, Spurrier was asked about former Florida linebacker James Bates’ impression of him: “On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give it about a 3. He tries. I give him an A for effort.”

10. Asked about his favorite golf hole, Spurrier revealed that he has hit six hole-in-ones in his life – and he shared a detailed story about one he hit during his first year on the job in Gainesville. “I can’t pick all six, can I? I’ll pick the longest one. … National Signing Day was Feb. 10. It was Feb. 3, one week until Signing Day. … Here I am, I was playing golf a week before signing day. No coach does that. I said, ‘Boys, we’ve got to keep this quiet. If we don’t win here at Florida, it’ll be a big story.’”

Men’s Basketball
The last time a team from the Pac-12 conference (or Pac-10) made it to the Final Four, Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook were teammates for Ben Howland’s last of three consecutive runs into the first weekend of April. That was 2008, nine years ago this season. In fact, no team from even west of Norman, OK has still been dancing when the field slims to four.

And none have won a national title since Lute Olson’s 1997 Arizona team.

With the Final Four being played in Arizona this year, is 2017 the year the Western drought ends?

Jon Wilner rates the chances of four final four contenders (and few more) from the Pac-12 and West Coast Conference.

4. UCLARecord: 23-3

RPI: 25

State of the Bruins: As dangerous offensively as any team in the country — four rotation players shoot 43 percent (or better) from 3-point range — and in possession of a singular talent (Lonzo Ball) capable of carrying his team to the biggest stage. But too many starters want no part of having to defend consistently.

Final Four prospects: Unlike the three teams listed above, the Bruins need favorable matchups in order to reach the semifinals. If they get sucked into a grinder early in the tournament … by a mini-Virginia, for example … that could be it.
More looking ahead to the tournament form Myron Medcalf at ESPN. He looks at which players, Kemba Walker-style, could will their teams with some obvious flaws to a championship with three weeks of dominating performance.

Top of the list? He’s got Lonzo Ball.

But the Bruins don’t defend like national champs. Only one champion (since 2001-02) has finished outside the top 20 in’s adjusted defensive efficiency rankings — North Carolina was 21st in 2008-09. The Bruins are ranked 126th. They do fly behind the game’s most exciting player, though. And he’s clutch. Ball led UCLA to that win over Oregon with Magic Johnson sitting in the front row. He. Does. Not. Feel. Pressure. Could UCLA lose its first game of the NCAA tournament? Sure. Could Ball carry the Bruins to a national title? Definitely.
Inside UCLA writer Clay Fowler breaks down how he voted in the AP rankings, where UCLA came in at #6 after a weekend sweep of the Oregon schools in Pauley Pavilion.

The Bruins so desperately needed Thursday’s win over then-No. 5 Oregon. Even with a win over the Ducks that looks like the best victory on its resume, UCLA is still struggling to get respect from the tournament committee, which projected it as a No. 4 seed.
Fowler voted the Bruins in the six spot, as well.

More from Wilner, but this on the gridiron, who ranks the “quarterback comfort levels” of each Pac-12 team for 2017.


Comment: Too low for a team with Josh Rosen? Perhaps, but as with everything else these days concerning the Bruins, the Hotline is highly skeptical. Yes, Rosen is a huge talent, but he’s a huge talent coming off a shoulder injury — the best predictor of future injury risk is an actual injury — and has not exactly proven himself to be an ideal leader. Behind Rosen? Mike Fafaul is gone, leaving only a handful of freshmen as options. Devon Modster is the best bet for the No. 2 role.
I still haven’t figured out his enduring beef with Rosen…

The Browns need a quarterback, but draft experts don’t think that’s the direction Cleveland will go with the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

ESPN’s Todd McShay dropped his latest mock on Wednesday, and he has the Browns taking defensive end Myles Garrett out of Texas A&M with the first overall pick. Our own Dan Kadar and ESPN’s Mel Kiper agree in their most recent mocks.

To be fair, the Browns have plenty of needs on both sides of the ball, and 13 picks to work with in 2017 to fill them.

Cleveland has two first-round selections this year, thanks to a 1-15 regular season record and last year’s trade that allowed the Eagles to move up to select quarterback Carson Wentz with the second overall pick. That would free Cleveland up to take quarterback Mitch Trubisky out of North Carolina. McShay thinks that’s precisely what will happen.

Trubisky would be an especially interesting choice for the Browns at No. 13. He hails from Mentor, Ohio, which is just about 30 minutes from Cleveland. Trubisky’s bio on the University of North Carolina website claims that if he could play for any team in the NFL, Trubisky would choose the Cleveland Browns. This may be a perfect fit.

There are plenty of teams in addition to the Browns that need to address the quarterback position this spring, and there isn’t enough top quarterback talent to go around.

The 49ers will need to get a competent signal caller to run new head coach Kyle Shanahan’s dynamic scheme. McShay projects San Francisco will take Deshaun Watson with the second overall pick despite the fact that McShay doesn’t have a first-round grade on the Clemson product. Both Kiper and Kadar project Trubisky to the Niners with the second pick.

Here are some other trends from the latest mock drafts.

The experts vary on the top wide receivers in this draft
The big names in the 2017 draft at the receiver position are Mike Williams out of Clemson and Corey Davis from Western Michigan. Draft experts are all over the place in terms of where they project these playmakers to be selected.

In his latest mock, Kadar projects Williams to go to the Cardinals at No. 13 and Davis to go right behind him, to the Eagles following a trade with the Vikings to get to No. 14. McShay has Davis going fifth overall to the Titans, and expects Williams to go No. 11 to the Bills — who have found success with another Clemson product, Sammy Watkins, at wide receiver. Kiper thinks Williams goes to Tennessee with the fifth overall selection, and has Williams going much later, to the Chiefs with the 28th pick.

Two projected top 10 picks will be limited at the combine
Speaking of Davis, he suffered an ankle injury while preparing for the NFL Combine, and it may keep him out of participating. The injury kept Davis out of the Senior Bowl, but he’s likely to still attend the combine to go through physicals, psychological testing, and team interviews.

Ohio State’s Malik Hooker, a top safety prospect, won’t be able to participate in the combine as he continues to recover from core muscle and labrum surgeries. Like Davis, Hooker should participate in the interviews and physicals at the combine, but won’t be able to go through workouts at the event.

Both Kadar and McShay have Hooker projected to go to the Chargers with the seventh overall pick. Kiper believes Hooker will be selected by Washington at No. 17.

Other consensus picks
Kadar, McShay, and Kiper all believe the Panthers will go running back with the eighth overall pick. They’re just split on which running back that will be. Kadar believes that pick will be Florida State’s Dalvin Cook, while both McShay and Kiper project LSU’s Leonard Fournette to Carolina at No. 8.

The Titans need a cornerback, according to the experts, and Kadar and Kiper both think the 18th pick will send Alabama’s Marlon Humphrey to Tennessee. McShay is on board with the cornerback need, but believes the Titans’ pick will be Sidney Jones out of Washington.

There’s no question that the Broncos need to shore up the offensive line. For both Kadar and McShay, the expectation is that Denver will be the first team to take a tackle this year, with Wisconsin’s Ryan Ramczyk coming off the board at No. 20. Kiper has the Broncos selecting Utah’s Garett Bolles with that pick.
