LAS VEGAS - Jordan Adams, the UCLA freshman few talked about last summer, will be water cooler chatter this morning. The tone of the conversation will vary. There will be upbeat, did-you-see-that talk about Adams, who scored 11 points in the last six minutes to bring the Bruins from behind in a 66-64 victory over Arizona in a Pac-12 tournament semifinal Friday. There will be the downcast can-you-believe-it remorse about Adams, who broke his right foot on the game's last play and is lost for the season.

Cal State Fullerton catcher David Trentine is expected to be sidelined for three to six weeks because of a broken bone in his right foot. Trentine was injured in the Fresno State series a week ago, and an initial examination had indicated a sprain, but further tests revealed the broken bone. Trentine had been platooned with Craig Patterson, who will take over full time. Trentine was hitting .286 with six runs batted in and had played in seven of the first eight games.

Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart. One needs a boot, the other needs a reboot. With Schaub done for the season for the Houston Texans because of a broken foot, Leinart has another chance to prove that he has what it takes to make it as an NFL starter, and that his success at USC wasn't just because of the all-star cast surrounding him. "The last three or four years, I've just really kind of put my head down and just worked extremely hard...

Mariano Duncan doesn't have a leg left to stand on. The Dodger shortstop, who already had suffered ankle, calf and hamstring injuries to his right leg, fractured his left foot in Monday night's game against the Mets and is expected to be out a month. Duncan's latest injury was almost as strange as his first, in which he was struck in the calf by a line drive during batting practice last Wednesday in Houston.

League most valuable player Shaun Alexander has a broken left foot and will be lost to the Seattle Seahawks for at least a couple of weeks. Coach Mike Holmgren said Monday that a bone scan revealed Alexander sustained a small crack and displaced fracture on a non-weight-bearing bone in his foot sometime during the Seahawks' 42-30 win over the New York Giants on Sunday. Alexander ran for 47 yards in 20 carries before sitting out the fourth quarter, which began with Seattle leading, 42-3.

Jordan, last season's rookie of the year, injured his foot when he came down hard on it in the second quarter of last Tuesday's game against Golden State at Oakland.

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is bracing for the possibility of having season-ending surgery on his broken left foot. Pedroia will have a CT scan on Friday. He says if the exam doesn't show sufficient healing, he will have a screw put in his foot. The injury originally occurred in late June. Pedroia returned for two games in August, then went back on the 15-day disabled list. He and the Red Sox hoped for his return this month, but his recovery hasn't gone as swiftly as anticipated.

The injury to defensive end Datone Jones refueled concerns about UCLA's synthetic turf at Spaulding Field. Jones suffered a broken right foot running on the turf during practice Tuesday and will have surgery Friday to insert a screw to hold together his fifth metatarsal. Coach Rick Neuheisel was optimistic that Jones could play again this season, though "the surgery is a 10- to 12-week deal," Neuheisel said. The injury occurred when Jones was "running, making a play on quarterback, and stepped in an awkward way and put a little pressure on that bone," Neuheisel said.

End Datone Jones broke his right foot in practice Monday, leaving UCLA without one of its best defensive players until at least October. Jones was injured during an individual drill on the artificial surface at the Bruins' practice facility. He was taken to the hospital for X-rays. "We'll have to wait and see the significance," Coach Rick Neuheisel said. "He just took a step, which caused the deal. He was wearing the same shoes he wears all the time, so it wasn't a shoe issue.

The next step, literally, is skating Tuesday for the first time since he suffered a broken bone in his right foot Dec. 17 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. If all goes well, Kariya expects to spend a couple of days practicing with his teammates when they return from a three-game trip next week.
