Tiger Woods won't be on hand to defend his title at the AT&T National next week, but he plans on being ready in July to continue his quest for his first major championship since 2008. The world's No. 1-ranked golfer announced on his website Wednesday that he will not compete in the National, which benefits his foundation, at Congressional Country Club due to a left elbow strain doctors found after his return from last weekend's U.S. Open. "I have been advised to take a few weeks off, rest and undergo treatment," Woods said on his website.

It appears as if Clippers reserve guard Jamal Crawford will play Saturday after completing a two-hour practice Friday, though the team still has him listed as a game-time decision. Crawford, who has sat out the last five games because of a strained left calf, said there was "definitely a chance" he would play against the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center. Crawford said the decision will be made after he wakes up Saturday morning and sees how the calf responded to practice.

It used to be that the nation's most populous state found itself on the sidelines when Republicans and Democrats squared off in congressional elections. California's carefully engineered districts were so safe for incumbents that only one of the 53 seats changed party hands during the last decade. Then last year, a voter-authorized citizens commission took over the job of drawing district maps and shook up the political landscape. Now, the two parties and their allies are fighting it out in at least 10 newly competitive seats around the state.

UCLA receiver Kenneth Walker cut across the field, leaving cornerback Adarius Pickett in his wake Thursday. He snagged a pass and cruised into the end zone. This was good medicine. Walker was concerned at times last fall, worrying about his future. He spent the season on the sideline after back surgery in June. “For a while, I was depressed,” he said. “I thought I was going to get lost in the shuffle. We only had one receiver leave. Everyone else was back and played.

Smelser said Mohney could return to the team by April 6. "They say that after the surgery, he'll be as good as new," Smelser said. "We're planning on him coming back with no problems." Assistant coach Andy Allensworth will manage the team in Mohney's absence.

The Kings' push to speed up the announcement of Tuesday's trade with the Florida Panthers backfired Wednesday night when Dmitry Yushkevich, the player they acquired in the deal, was unable to play against his former teammates. The Russian defenseman was held out of the lineup after doctors discovered a ruptured blood vessel in his right eye, leaving the Kings a player short. Because of injuries, they dressed 17 skaters, one fewer than NHL rules allow.

Azer Farag Azer is here. So are the caricaturist and the writers, lots of writers, and that tall dentist, the son of the movie star. All here for lunch, herring and boiled egg. Where is Felfel? Praying. He'll be back. They're protesting again in the square. The revolution is over, but they march past with banners and rage. Maybe it's not over. There have been others. 1919. 1952. This one seems different, though. Who would have ever dreamed of the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak?

Brady Hoke and the five assistant coaches who left San Diego State with him when he was hired away by Michigan were on the sidelines at the Big House in Ann Arbor on Saturday, when Hoke's past team met his present. And when we say sidelines, we mean it literally. They were on both. While Hoke and his new staff worked with the Wolverines, San Diego State used photos of Hoke and his former Aztecs assistants to call in plays from its sideline. San Diego State didn't make its players available to the media after a 28-7 loss, but based on the postgame comments of Aztecs Coach Rocky Long , it can be assumed it was done out of respect.

The Clippers got closer to full strength Thursday with the return of J.J. Redick, but it may be the closest they get for a while. Coach Doc Rivers said Jamal Crawford and Danny Granger may not come back before the postseason from injuries that have sidelined them since late last month. The Clippers have five games left in the regular season after playing the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night. "I'd be surprised if we saw either one of them until the playoffs, maybe," Rivers said.

SAN DIEGO - For the Dodgers, the start of this season is beginning to feel uncomfortably similar to the start of the last. In fact, this could turn out worse. The Dodgers did beat the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, 3-2, to improve to 3-1. But the good news ended there. Not only did Manager Don Mattingly have to concede that ace Clayton Kershaw was unlikely to pitch this month because of a strained back muscle, he said $10-million setup man Brian Wilson was about to join the sidelined ace on the 15-day disabled list.

Chris Kaman started Tuesday's game for one reason. There weren't enough healthy big men for the Lakers against New York. “It's been a long season. I can't wait till it's over,” Kaman said, adding a sigh before officially ending a 10-game sentence at the end of the Lakers' bench. He hasn't enjoyed the month of March. Or, really, this whole season. “The last conversation I've had with Coach [Mike D'Antoni] was in Portland,” three weeks ago, Kaman said. “I didn't really talk to him [Tuesday]

Point guards are the lifeblood of Coach Mike D'Antoni 's system, the heads of the snake that drive and score or kick out to open shooters in a perfect basketball world (see: Steve Nash , 2005). Too bad none of them can stay healthy on the Lakers. Nash has played only 11 games because of his chronically sore back, Jordan Farmar has played only 36 games and backup point guard Xavier Henry has spent more than two months on the sidelines. Kobe Bryant , a backup point guard for a while, lasted all of six games this season.

More than 700 Little League baseball players have been sidelined in Newport Beach: The city's entire league was suspended for having too many coaches on its board. The league was suspended Wednesday, forcing the cancellation of Thursday and Saturday games for hundreds of Little League players. Joe Jennings, a board member for Newport Beach Little League, told the Daily Pilot that the punishment seemed like an “extreme action that has been harsh for so many kids.” Little League rules say coaches can't total more than half the number of people on the board, according to Jennings.

With Jamal Crawford out again because of a strained left calf and J.J. Redick still out because of a bulging disk in his lower back, the Clippers are missing a big part of their offense. Crawford is the reserve shooting guard who became the starter when Redick went down. Redick is the starting shooting guard when he's healthy. Together, they average a combined 34.4 points per game for the Clippers. Crawford, considered one of the leading candidates for the NBA's sixth-man-of-the-year award, is second on the team in scoring, averaging 18.7 points.

Fox News has indefinitely sidelined its daily afternoon program "The Big Story," hosted by John Gibson, to extend the run of a new hourlong political newscast called "America's Election HQ." The campaign-oriented show, anchored by Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly, premiered in late February. The network decided to keep it on the air because of strong viewer interest in the 2008 race, which has helped lift the ratings of all the cable news channels this year. The move was first reported by the blog TVNewser.

This season's college bowl schedule is reminiscent of how it used to be in the last months of the year in pro golf, or the last five minutes of an NBA rout. Garbage time. ESPN fills airtime and sells ads, but there is no compelling reason to watch or buy. Find a good book to read. Then there is the Rose Bowl, Stanford versus Michigan State on Wednesday, a sign that all is not lost. These are two excellent teams, finishing off compelling seasons played in tough, competitive conferences.

Jamal Crawford sat toward the end of the Clippers' bench during a game Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks, his left leg wrapped in ice, the pain in his strained calf too much for him to play in the second half. He had given the Clippers 9 minutes 35 seconds of playing time in the first half, but was unable to go any more even though Crawford and the Clippers said the shooting guard didn't reinjure himself. Crawford is not expected to play Monday night against the Phoenix Suns at Staples Center and may not play the rest of the week.

PHOENIX -- Outfielder Yasiel Puig left the Dodgers' 10-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday after two hitless at-bats because of inflammation in his upper back. Puig and Manager Don Mattingly said the trainers told them the problem isn't serious and Puig is expected to play in the field Thursday against the Angels in Tempe, Ariz. "Obviously, if he came in tomorrow not doing good, then we wouldn't probably [play him]. " Mattingly said of Puig, who is hitting .231 in 13 at-bats.
