It will be a game-time decision whether Ryan Getzlaf will play Friday in Game 5 of the Ducks' deadlocked first-round Western Conference playoff series against the Dallas Stars. The team's leading scorer missed Wednesday's 4-2 loss at Dallas because of an upper-body injury that Coach Bruce Boudreau said was aggravated in the previous game, a 3-0 road loss. Neither Boudreau nor Getzlaf would confirm whether the injury is connected to the multiple stitches Getzlaf received after being struck in the face with a puck blasted by Dallas scoring leader Tyler Seguin in Game 1. Getzlaf was ruled out of Game 4 Wednesday morning, and then boarded a flight back to Southern California for an afternoon medical appointment.

Henderson, the Titans' leading scorer with a 21-point-per-game average, sprained his ankle Sunday, early in the first half of Fullerton's nonconference loss at the University of Portland. The injury has been diagnosed as a "severe sprain." The senior point guard is listed as questionable for Saturday's game at Pepperdine, but could be ready for the Pacific Coast Athletic Assn.

It took several years and a stop in New York and a more recent move to Columbus, but Marian Gaborik finally became a Los Angeles King. Gaborik was interested in the Kings a long time ago, and Kings General Manager Dean Lombardi had toyed with the idea of bringing in the forward with game-breaking potential. Timing is everything and it all finally came together shortly before Wednesday's trade deadline. Lombardi acquired Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for underperforming forward Matt Frattin and conditional draft picks.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Caron Butler eased over after the Clippers' practice Friday at Johnson Smith University and sat down on the bleachers with ice packs on both of his knees, a smile crossing his face as he began listening to Jamal Crawford talk about how he has picked up his assist game. "He's diversifying his portfolio," Butler said. He paused for effect, and then both Butler and Crawford burst out laughing. "He's not putting all his stock in one place," Butler continued.

Two young men came out of the National Football League draft in 1975 and stuck with the Chicago Bears for 10 years, one of them becoming the franchise's all-time leading scorer. In fact, in that 10th year, both of these athletes passed George Blanda, the previous Bears' scoring leader. One of these men was Walter Payton, who is to the Bears what Ernie Banks was to the Cubs. However, Payton was not to become the all-time leading scorer in that 10th year.

James Harden is long gone, presumably never to return. Russell Westbrook is probably coming back soon, though the right knee that has required three surgeries since April makes his long-term durability somewhat questionable. That leaves Kevin Durant, which means everything is going to be OK(C) for the Thunder. It almost seems as if the spindly forward is all Oklahoma City needs on many nights. Durant recently scored 30 or more points in 12 consecutive games, a streak that ended only after he sat out the entire fourth quarter of a blowout victory over the Brooklyn Nets.

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.
