Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp underwent a left ankle operation Monday that will limit his off-season training program, according to his agent, Dave Stewart. Stewart said Kemp is expected to be ready for opening day. The procedure was performed in North Carolina by famed ankle specialist Robert Anderson. Kemp had torn cartilage removed from his ankle. Kemp was sidelined for all of the playoffs because of problems with the ankle. Dodgers physician Neal ElAttrache feared that if Kemp continued playing, he could break one of the major weight-bearing bones in his foot.

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.
