PHOENIX - Matt Kemp didn't run particularly fast or long Saturday, but that didn't matter to him. For the first time since he underwent an ankle operation four months ago, Kemp ran on something other than the anti-gravity treadmill. "I never thought running would be so fun," he said with a smile. The former All-Star was cleared to enter the next phase of his rehabilitation by his surgeon, who reviewed the results of a routine MRI exam Kemp underwent two days earlier. Kemp is hopeful he can play in the Cactus League, but in reality still has no idea when he'll be in a competitive game.

PHOENIX - Matt Kemp is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam on Friday, the results of which could determine the next step in his rehabilitation. Kemp hasn't run outdoors since he underwent surgery on his left ankle four months ago. Even if Kemp's ankle is determined to be healed, Mattingly expects the former All-Star to take his time coming back. “I'm not quite sure what it's going to allow us to do,” Mattingly said. “I'm assuming once we get the green light to go forward, it's still going to be a progression to get him ready.” For the sake of the player, Mattingly is hoping Kemp can take a step forward.

One of short-track speedskating's biggest names, Chinese star Wang Meng, will probably miss the 2014 Sochi Olympics after breaking her right ankle in training. Wang reportedly collided with a teammate in a turn. She is expected to undergo surgery to repair tibia and fibula fractures in the ankle. "If she receives this kind of surgery, Wang will have to be sidelined for at least six to eight weeks," Liu Yasen, a Chinese weightlifting team doctor, told the Xinhua news service . That would preclude defending her 500-, 1,000- and 3,000-meter relay titles when the Winter Games begin on Feb. 7. Wang won the 500 at the 2006 and 2010 Games.

SALT LAKE CITY - This was supposed to be the easy part of the Lakers' schedule. Simple, really. Get closer to .500 with a slew of games against teams already deeply embedded in draft lottery odds. But the Lakers might be one of those lottery teams too. They lost to the Utah Jazz, 105-103, and fell four games under .500 for the first time this season. BOX SCORE: Jazz 105, Lakers 103 The Lakers couldn't stop anybody, as usual, letting the NBA's 27th-ranked offense blow past its average of 92.7 points before Friday.

UCLA's defense got a little weaker Friday. Linebacker Eric Kendricks had right ankle surgery, leaving the Bruins without their leading tackler when they face Virginia Tech on Dec. 31 in the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Kendricks had surgery on the same ankle last summer, which kept him out of training camp. Still, he didn't miss a game during the regular season despite more injuries. He left the Stanford game Oct. 19 with a back injury and the Oregon game the following week with a shoulder injury.

USC tailback Silas Redd is expected to sit out the Las Vegas Bowl because of a knee injury and tailback Tre Madden could be a game-time decision because of an ankle injury, interim Coach Clay Helton said Saturday. Neither Redd nor Madden practiced as the Trojans resumed workouts after three days off for finals. USC plays Fresno State next Saturday. Redd, a senior, led the Trojans in rushing in 2012 but suffered a left knee injury during spring practice. He was sidelined for much of the first part of the season while recovering from surgeries.

Kobe Bryant practiced for a third consecutive day Thursday and said he felt improvement in his left ankle. “It feels stronger this morning than it did yesterday before practice,” Bryant said, “and it's less sore now than it was after last practice, so that's progression.” KOBE QUIZ: Do you really know the 'Black Mamba'? So, does that mean he will make his season debut Sunday when the Lakers play the Toronto Raptors at Staples Center? “I'm trying,” said Bryant, who has been sidelined since April by a torn Achilles' tendon.

Pau Gasol was clearly limited on Sunday night when the Lakers lost 114-108 to the Portland Trail Blazers. Hampered by a sprained ankle, Gasol scored just six points on 3-of-15 shooting while Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge dominated with 27. Fortunately for the Lakers, Gasol isn't expected to miss any games. An MRI of his right ankle on Monday didn't show any significant damage. MRI revealed a mild sprain, so good news. I will work in these next days in order to be ready to play for Friday's game in Sacramento.
