The stretch of days the Clippers have off this week may not be enough to help their injured players return any sooner. After the Clippers play Monday night at the Denver Nuggets, Los Angeles has four days off before playing Saturday against the Detroit Pistons at Staples Center. The Clippers won't practice Tuesday or Wednesday. That time off still may not help guards J.J. Redick (bulging disk in back) and Jamal Crawford (strained left calf) return to play. "I don't think it will be because one of them or both of them may not be ready," Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said.

Apparently the Denver Broncos saw a few holes when they reviewed the film of their 43-8 Super Bowl XLVIII loss to the Seattle Seahawks. On the second day of NFL free agency, the Broncos continued to plug those holes on defense, signing linebacker DeMarcus Ware to a three-year, $30-million contract, with $20 million of the deal guaranteed. The Broncos run a 3-4 defensive alignment, which Ware has played in most of his career. The Broncos also filled other defensive needs Wednesday when they added safety T.J. Ward, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, and Aqib Talib, formerly of the New England Patriots.

The Lakers will probably be mathematically eliminated next week from a playoff spot, four weeks before the regular season ends. That's what happens when you go 10-29 since Dec. 21.

Yet they beat Portland and Oklahoma City in the span of seven days. It's fine to be confused.

Champ Bailey will eventually wind up in Canton. But he thought he would stay in Denver a little longer. According to multiple reports, the Denver Broncos intend to release Bailey, a future Hall of Fame cornerback who earned eight of his record 12 Pro Bowl invitations in the Mile High City. Bailey, who met with team brass Wednesday, told the Denver Post that he thought the team might approach him with a renegotiation of his $10-million salary but there was no such offer made. “There were no discussions about it,” he told the newspaper.

DENVER -- The NHL's Olympic break may be over but its effects are lingering for the players who made the long trip home from Sochi last weekend. Kings defenseman Drew Doughty, who joined the team Monday in Denver after helping Canada win a gold medal Sunday, said he was still feeling fatigued three days later. "It's not easy to have whatever, an 11-hour time change, have to fly 11 hours. It's tough to adjust," he said. "I've been falling asleep early at night. And waking up really early in the morning.
