Coach Vinny Del Negro said that the Clippers were concerned about Blake Griffin's burst bursa sac in his right elbow, but that his All-Star power forward was feeling well enough to play against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night. Del Negro said Griffin also had a stiff neck as well from being hit in practice Tuesday. But he said Griffin went through the morning shoot-around Wednesday. "There is always a concern because Blake is such a huge part of what need to do," Del Negro said.

PHOENIX — Dodgers No. 3 starter Ted Lilly reported improvement in his stiff neck but still won't make his scheduled start Tuesday. "Today, I feel quite a bit better," Lilly said. "I'm still not to where I'm confident that I'd be able to go out there tomorrow and not regress. " The move could jeopardize his status for the season-opening series in San Diego. Manager Don Mattingly said the team has a few days to decide whether to make preparations for No. 5 starter Chris Capuano to pitch in the four-game series against the Padres.

I'm happy that former President George Bush is enjoying his active retirement ("Doing the Retirement Thing," by Martin Kasindorf, June 23). However, if, as pictured on the cover, Mr. Bush makes a habit of turning his head in such an ungodly manner while fishing--or doing anything else, for that matter--he must suffer from a stiff neck most of the time. Not many of us, unless we're possessed by demons, can place our chin over a shoulder, and I'm sure Mr. Bush doesn't need an exorcist. Jack Mason Cypress

New York Jets quarterback Ken O'Brien has aggravated his injured throwing shoulder and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams at Anaheim. O'Brien was supposed to sit out Sunday's 13-0 loss to Pittsburgh, but he aggravated his shoulder injury when he was forced to play after Pat Ryan was knocked out of the game with a concussion. O'Brien's arm was so sore it kept him up most of Sunday night. He won't throw until Friday, if at all, Coach Joe Walton said Monday.

Goran Ivanisevic lost a match in his sleep Sunday, giving Andre Agassi a tainted title. On the morning of their final at the Lipton Championships, Ivanisevic woke up with a stiff neck. He underwent three hours of treatment and tried to play but quit in the fourth game. "To beat Andre you have to be 105%, and I was maybe 2%," Ivanisevic said. The tournament doctor said Ivanisevic probably slept wrong, and the ailment is unlikely to bother him for more than a few days.

The good thing about UCLA tailback Gaston Green is also what's bad about him. Green is painfully consistent. He always seems to be gaining a lot of yards and he always seems to be getting hurt. So while the chances of Green attaining the status of Bo Jackson or Vinny Testaverde have plummeted to just about zero, at least he has improved his chances to emerge as the new commercial spokesman for Band-Aids. Just think of the possibilities.

Add Ted Lilly to the list of ailing Dodgers. A stiff neck forced Lilly to make a premature exit from the Dodgers' 7-6, 12-inning defeat to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday at Coors Field. The extent of the problem is unknown and the Dodgers will wait to see whether Lilly's condition improves in the coming days before deciding whether he will make his next start. "I don't expect to miss it," Lilly said. Lilly went into Saturday with a 1.71 earned-run average this month but literally zero run support.

Carlos Perez pitched Saturday afternoon despite undergoing treatment for a stiff neck before and during a game against the San Francisco Giants. He felt worse after the Dodgers stalled offensively in a 4-1 loss at Pacific Bell Park. The Dodgers grounded into double plays in the first three innings against starter Kirk Rueter, stranded nine runners and lost for the first time in five games at the Giants' new home before another sellout crowd of 40,930.

Clayton Kershaw's postseason experience last year consisted of two innings over two games of the National League Championship Series. The 21-year-old left-hander figures to play a greater role this October. Kershaw is scheduled to make his final start of the season against the Colorado Rockies on Saturday, which would put him in line to pitch in Game 2 of the NL division series on Oct. 8. Randy Wolf is starting Friday, making him the likely Game 1 starter. Hiroki Kuroda originally was scheduled to pitch Saturday, but a stiff neck has led to his being scratched from his last start of the season.

The hike is long and dusty, across two miles of shrub-strewn desert, south of Apple Valley. But Lisa Fernandez, a Web designer and hot springs enthusiast, has often made the trek from the trail head to the pools of steaming water. She believes the payoff is worth it: a day of soaking in undeveloped, natural hot springs in the shade of pine and willow trees at the foot of the San Bernardino Mountains.
