Moguls freestyler Heidi Kloser wasn't about to let a broken leg and torn knee ligaments stop her from marching in the opening ceremony at the Olympics. That's how much the moment meant to the 21-year-old from Vail, Colo. She ended up marching in the parade, on crutches, no less, on Friday. She tweeted a picture of herself, beforehand in Olympic garb, saying: "Excited that I still get to walk!" Just a day earlier, Kloser's Olympic dream came to an end as she crashed in a training run and had to pull out of the event not long before qualifying started.

PHILADELPHIA - Swaggy knee? Nick Young was the Lakers' latest player to get hurt, taking away their second-leading scorer and nickname-bestowing personality. He will miss at least two weeks because of a non-displaced fracture in the patella of his left knee. Young, who averages 16.9 points, also sustained a bone bruise. Young was injured when Cleveland guard C.J. Miles grabbed him from behind on a fastbreak layup, forcing him to plant unsteadily in the second quarter of the Lakers' 119-108 victory Wednesday.

Kobe Bryant is still experiencing pain and swelling in his left knee, according to the Lakers. The Lakers' All-Star guard was examined before the team's Tuesday night battle against the Indiana Pacers by Dr. Steve Lombardo. Bryant will be reevaluated again in about three weeks. In the meantime, he'll continue to exercise primarily on a stationary bike. After sitting out the start of the season until Dec. 8, rehabbing an Achilles'  tendon injury, Bryant fractured his lateral tibial plateau in a 96-92 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Dec. 17. Bryant has played in just six games for the Lakers this season, averaging 13.8 points and 6.3 assists.

Wanaah Bail recalls the first time he picked up a basketball. He was in eighth grade and, he said, "I felt at home. " Now a redshirt freshman at UCLA, he looks very much as though he belongs on the court: 6 feet 9 with a massive wingspan and huge hands. It's where he'd like to be too, but he has been forced to be patient. Bail was a dominant power forward at Rosenberg (Texas) Lamar Consolidated High two years ago. His original college choice was Texas Tech, but he left the Red Raiders' basketball program after three weeks, a casualty of Coach Billy Gillispie's implosion.
