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.

Every week for the last month or so I have been scouring Home looking for something that tells me where Barbara King is. I have missed "The Eye." Last week, my coffee came with a treat: I'm so glad to see her column again. Her words are poetry and I love the way she interweaves her life into the theme of the section. There is nothing more comforting than reading her on Thursday mornings. Cheryl Romo San Pedro

It took the long checkout lines at the grocery store and the crowd in the Bev Mo parking lot to remind me that Friday was New Year's Eve. I've been on vacation for a week, doing the couch potato thing, enjoying my daughters and my dogs and my freedom from responsibilities. It was life in suspended animation, until the reality of a new decade hit me. Didn't we just do the whole Y2K thing? Has it really been 10 years since the last New Year's Eve I remember celebrating? I figured I would write this week about the holiday's meaning and memories.

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.

Bringing back a bit of the sexiness of gadgets more suited to Ethan Hunt, James Bond or Captain "kicking it old-school" Kirk, Research in Motion is making your BlackBerry an "eye-device," with information from your iris stored inside. In partnership with Iris ID and HID Global , RIM has announced that it's supporting the use of a biometric template from Iris ID. This means you could flash your Blackberry instead of an employee ID card to open doors at work.
