Coach Don Chaney received some added job security Tuesday, getting a one-year contract extension from the New York Knicks. The extension is the second for Chaney in less than a year since taking over after Jeff Van Gundy's unexpected resignation in December. It also perhaps signals that the Knicks will not make Chaney a fall guy during a likely poor season.

Oh, that Denver Bronco football, still keeping left guard Mark Schlereth in stitches. Midway through his 12th NFL season, Schlereth underwent his 28th surgery this week, this time to repair a left knee that had previously been operated on 13 times. Schlereth has undergone five operations on his right knee, six on his elbows, one on his eyes, one to remove a back disk and one to remove a kidney stone.

After giving the team Sunday off, Coach Larry Robinson Monday put the Kings through a tough 90-minute practice that emphasized conditioning and board work. "I felt that we were a little sluggish against Montreal [in a 4-1 loss on Saturday]," Robinson said. "We didn't have the same jump that we had in previous games. I wanted to make sure that we are ready to go."

It was with dismay that I read "Growing a New Knee" (March 6) [about repairing knee cartilage]. Just a modicum of research would have revealed that most responsible orthopedic surgeons, with an insight into this issue, would react quite negatively. At the recent meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Bert Zarins from Massachusetts General Hospital, who has done more of these procedures than anyone else in the United States, reported a very high failure rate, and recommended that the procedure not be done routinely.

Infielder Chad Fonville, who had become a fan favorite with his hustling play, figured he would have a starting job this spring. Instead, the Dodgers signed Greg Gagne for $2.6 million to become their shortstop and re-signed Delino DeShields for $3 million as their second baseman. Just like that, Fonville was without a starting job, and really, a position. He is being cast as a super-utility player.
