Kobe Bryant continues to move forward in his rehabilitation from a torn Achilles' tendon, though the Lakers are unwilling to put an updated timetable on his exact return. "He's progressing well and has met all the targets and milestones of his rehab, and we expect him to make a full recovery," Lakers spokesman John Black told The Times on Monday. "One of the key issues is to make sure he builds up strength and endurance not only in his Achilles but also in his legs, knees, back and core.

PHOENIX  - The Angels and Milwaukee Brewers did not use instant replay in Saturday's exhibition game in Maryvale Park, but Joe Blanton did, which is not necessarily a good thing for the veteran right-hander. Blanton, in what may have been his last chance to win a spot on the Angels' pitching staff, was tagged for four earned runs and six hits, including a home run, in 41/3 innings, striking out three and walking four, a near carbon copy of many of his starts from 2013, when he went 2-14 with a 6.04 earned-run average.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It had been a calf injury that delayed Josh Hamilton's Cactus League debut until Monday. He singled for his first hit, then took off for second base. For the Angels, that was as good a sign as any. The swing might not be there yet, but the legs are back. "It felt good," Hamilton said. "I did all the things you're supposed to be able to do on the field. " On Monday he did, since the Angels limited him to designated hitter in a game against the San Francisco Giants.

Hank Stram has become a Raider announcer. Yes, the same Hank Stram who used to coach the Kansas City Chiefs, a team the Raiders despised. Stram has been hired by Channel 9 to work as a commentator on three exhibition telecasts, which is sort of like Tom Lasorda someday announcing for the San Francisco Giants. Stram, though, doesn't think it's so unusual.

Bad things happen in threes? That was the case for NFL offensive coordinators this week, as Kansas City's Chan Gailey, Tampa Bay's Jeff Jagodzinski and Buffalo's Turk Schonert were dismissed in rapid-fire succession this week, meaning those teams had to make significant adjustments less than two weeks before the season kicks off. What's more, each of those teams faces one of last season's top-10 defenses in its opener. The Chiefs play at Baltimore; the Buccaneers play host to Dallas; and the Bills play the first half of a Monday night doubleheader at New England.

Brown, who averaged almost five three-pointers a game last season and led the team with a 17.4-point scoring average, will miss Irvine's game against Five Star Sports at 7:30 tonight in the Bren Center because he missed team study sessions.

The NBA Thursday canceled 24 exhibition games and postponed the start of training camps indefinitely as the lockout went through its 86th day with only the faintest of hope for a resolution soon. The likelihood grew that the league will be forced to cancel regular-season games because of a work stoppage for the first time in its history. "Nobody wants to miss the whole season, but there are 29 owners that are willing to do so if they have to," said Russ Granik, deputy commissioner.

The Lakers played Golden State in an exhibition game that started at 4:30 a.m. Pacific time Tuesday, ended a few ticks before 6:45 and took place 6,000 miles from L.A. Nick Young had 18 points, Pau Gasol had 15 and the chants for Kobe Bryant started in the first quarter of the Lakers' 100-95 loss. Bryant sat in a dark suit on the bench, still recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon, but it didn't stop the game-ops people from putting him on the scoreboard three or four times every quarter to the endless delight of Lakers fans.

Even though his team won, 89-81, in Rivers' debut with the Clippers, a coach's work is never done. It was the way Rivers operated when he was the successful coach of Boston, helping to lead the Celtics to the 2008 NBA championship and the NBA Finals in 2010.
