When the media was let in after the Clippers' shoot-around on Monday, Glen “Big Baby” Davis was on the court running wind sprints. When his teammates started leaving, Davis stayed and continued shooting after the practice. It was clear that Davis was getting in some extra work and it also was clear that the run-in the big power forward had with Clippers Coach Doc Rivers on Saturday night in Houston was over. Rivers said the two had talked, that the issue was resolved and that Davis was expected to play Monday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

MINNEAPOLIS - Sunday was a day of rest and no practice for the Clippers, giving Glen Davis time to reflect on his run-in with Coach Doc Rivers and allowing Blake Griffin time to get more treatment for back spasms. The drama-filled moments from Saturday night's game between the Clippers and Houston Rockets also included reserve guard Jamal Crawford suffering from a sore and tight left Achilles' tendon. Davis had gotten into an argument with Rivers during the game Saturday night and was eventually escorted off the bench and into the Clippers' locker room after Rivers told the team's security to remove his backup power forward.

HOUSTON  - Even as the Clippers try to prepare for the playoffs that they will be in for the third consecutive season, it's not an easy task. It's a difficult challenge for the Clippers because of the uncertainly of whom they might face in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. The Clippers, who have eight regular-season games left, could play any of four teams in the West because of all the jockeying that's still going on for playoff positions. Because things are so fluid, Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said he now looks at the West standings more than he did in the past.

Joan Rivers returned to "The Tonight Show" Thursday after being banned for nearly three decades. The 80-year-old comic was welcomed by host Jimmy Fallon for her first sit-down interview in 26 years since a feud with former host Johnny Carson made her persona non grata at the network. Carson is credited with discovering the sharp-tongued Rivers in the '60s. He made her a writer on his show, and she even dedicated her book "Enter Talking" to him. But when she got her own competing, late-night talker on Fox in 1986, the pair fell out and never spoke again.

LOS ALGODONES, Mexico - Osvel Hinojosa knew that an infusion of water would bring the Colorado River delta back to life. But in just a few days, a U.S.-Mexican experiment to revive the delta environment has exceeded his expectations. The water is running deeper, faster and wider than anticipated in a channel that was once bone-dry. Hinojosa has spotted hawks, egrets and ospreys flying above the newly flowing water. He's even seen beavers. "It's just amazing to see that we can recover the river and see it alive again," said Hinojosa, water and wetlands program director at Pronatura Noroeste, a Mexican water conservation group.

As even the most casual student of American history knows, Theodore Roosevelt was a larger-than-life figure. Besides being our 26th president, he was an outdoorsman, an explorer, a historian and a war hero. T.R.'s adventures on the campaign trail, the battlefield and on African safaris have served as material for many works of fiction and nonfiction. In "Roosevelt's Beast," the novelist Louis Bayard takes on one of his lesser-known exploits - his 1914 expedition to map a Brazilian rain forest waterway with an appropriately harrowing and mythical name, "the River of Doubt.

NEW ORLEANS - When Clippers Coach Doc Rivers was asked Wednesday night about the chances of J.J. Redick returning to play with the team on this trip, Rivers left the assembled media confused with his answers. Redick was on the court shooting before the Clippers played the New Orleans Pelicans, but he still missed his 21st consecutive game because of a bulging disk in his back. Redick will be with the Clippers on the entire five-game trip and Rivers was asked if he would play.

It's a quandary Clippers Coach Doc Rivers would love to face. J.J. Redick comes back from the bulging disc in his back that has sidelined him since early February, giving the Clippers a full complement of players. Who would Rivers put in his starting lineup in addition to regulars Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan? It would "most likely" be Redick and Matt Barnes, Rivers said Monday. "If we think someone else is better suited, we'll do that," Rivers said, "but that would be a good lineup for us. " It doesn't appear to be a lineup the Clippers will trot out soon.
