The news that three female kidnapping victims had been held against their will for roughly a decade each has shocked Cleveland and the nation. But such cases are not without precedent. Elizabeth Smart, of Utah, was kidnapped at knife point at age 14 in 2002, sexually assaulted and held captive for nine months by a street preacher; Jaycee Dugard was kidnapped in South Lake Tahoe by a couple in 1981, when she was 11, and held for 18 years in tents and a shack in their back yard. Both Smart and Dugard   said Tuesday that the three women, taken in separate kidnappings in 2002, 2003 and 2004 and held in a Cleveland home for years,  would need time to recover after their sudden escape and rescue.  Photos: Long-term abductions "These individuals need the opportunity to heal and connect back into the world," Dugard said in a statement provided to the Los Angeles Times.

CLEVELAND -- Lakers power forward Pau Gasol will sit out Tuesday's game against Cleveland, missing his fifth consecutive game because of knee tendinitis. The Lakers are 1-3 without Gasol, including a home loss Sunday to Utah. Cleveland is a woeful 4-17, but the Lakers (9-12) can't take anybody lightly, especially with their unimpressive 2-6 road record. Gasol played all 65 games last season and all 82 the year before that. Will he play Thursday in New York? "Who knows?"

Stephen Jackson scored 29 points and the Charlotte Bobcats took advantage of Antawn Jamison's miserable debut for Cleveland in a 110-93 victory Friday night to send the Cavaliers to their second straight loss. Two days after being acquired from Washington, Jamison came off the bench and promptly shot 0 for 12 from the field. He was blocked five times and tossed up two airballs, while looking out of sync with his new teammates. The Bobcats won the season series from the Cavaliers, 3-1. -- associated press

The L.A. KISS unraveled during its second home game at Honda Center in Anaheim on Saturday night as it lost, 40-30, to the Cleveland Gladiators. The defense seemed almost nonexistent at times, the offense could not find a rhythm and even the fans seemed to be against them in the third quarter when a sure touchdown throw by quarterback J.J. Raterink to receiver Donovan Morgan was broken up by a fan in the front row who reached over to grab the...

The Cleveland Cavaliers haven't been decimated by injuries like the Lakers have. They play in the weaker Eastern Conference in which just five teams have winning records. Somehow though, the Cavaliers have the same record as the Lakers through 48 games, 16-32. Injuries have defined the season for the Lakers, who just got Steve Nash and Steve Blake back on Tuesday night in a loss to the Timberwolves in Minnesota. Jordan Farmar (hamstring) should be available Wednesday when the Lakers visit the Cavaliers.

The Lakers' injuries keep coming, as if anything's really surprising anymore. Pau Gasol was the latest to receive bad MRI exam results and was expected to miss at least a week because of a strained right groin, the Lakers said Saturday. He won't be available for their three-game trip to Minnesota, Cleveland and Philadelphia, which means the Lakers might be 20 to 25 games under .500 when Kobe Bryant returns from a fractured knee. Or, it should be said, if Bryant returns from a fractured knee this season.
