Clippers backup small forward Matt Barnes didn't make the trip to Minneapolis because he has a bruised left eye, the team announced Wednesday afternoon. Barnes was injured during the Clippers' game against the Grizzlies on Monday night when he was hit by an inadvertent elbow from Memphis forward Zach Randolph. The Clippers said Barnes will miss the game against the Timberwolves on Wednesday night and against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night. With Barnes out, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers probably will turn to rookie Reggie Bullock to provide some backup minutes at small forward behind starter Jared Dudley.

Angel Vidal Mendoza, 34, has been charged with mayhem, torture, child cruelty and inflicting an injury to a child in the alleged attack on his son. Bakersfield police said in a search warrant that the child told investigators, "My daddy ate my eyes." Police said Mendoza appeared to be under the influence of PCP after the April 28 incident.

He should have saved this for "talk like a pirate" day, but Greg Monroe of the Detroit Pistons looked like a pirate as he was shooting a free throw Wednesday night. While driving to the hoop, Monroe was poked in the eye by Philadelphia's Spencer Hawes, drawing a foul. Unfortunately for Monroe, the poke knocked out one of his contact lenses, without which he has the eyesight of Mr. Magoo. Monroe couldn't find the lens, so he had to shoot his first free throw while basically being blind in one eye. Solution: Close the eye. He made the free throw.

This photo was tastefully conceived and presented, without any fanfare, hoopla or parental warnings. Thank you for not succumbing to the recent trend toward censorship. KENNY GOLDBERG Pasadena
