Carter, who said he was feeling better after the game and hoped to be back Sunday, spent the second half in the trainers' room and had his ankle wrapped.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- His left shoulder, which was so damaged and weak last season he hit .175 from the right side, felt strong, and his left knee, which "wasn't feeling real great a couple weeks ago," was beginning to come around. Gary Matthews Jr. was having a great spring, getting a single in his first at-bat Monday to raise his Cactus League average to .449 and stealing second, his fourth stolen base. Then, on a play so innocuous most in Tempe Diablo Stadium probably didn't see it, Matthews twisted his right ankle as he pulled up before third base on Garret Anderson's inning-ending strikeout, fell to the ground in pain and had to be helped off the field.

LAS VEGAS -- Steve Nash left the Lakers' exhibition game against the Sacramento Kings on Thursday night in the first quarter after failing to get his left ankle loose. He can only hope it's not a season-long issue. The veteran point guard disclosed after the Lakers' 104-86 defeat at MGM Grand Garden Arena that his ankle has bothered him since about a week before the start of training camp. “Tonight was just one of those nights that for whatever reason it just wasn't moving freely and I couldn't get it to loosen up and it started to get worse,” said Nash, who went scoreless with two assists in only eight minutes.
