Lakers guard Blake 'spiked,' out 3 weeks

Posted: September 25, 2012

LOS ANGELES Lakers guard Steve Blake will miss at least 3 weeks after stepping on a spike strip at a beach parking lot and suffering a puncture wound in his left foot.

Blake, 32, lives in Manhattan Beach, Calif., and was walking barefoot when he was injured over the weekend.

He averaged 5.2 points in 53 games with the Lakers last season.

Auto Racing * 

Furniture Row Racing hired Kurt Busch to drive for the Colorado-based team in 2013. Busch will replace Regan Smith in the No. 78 Chevrolet. Busch was the 2004 NASCAR champion, but he split with Penske Racing at the end of last season because of his many off-track incidents. He spent this season driving for Phoenix Racing in the Sprint Cup series and his brother's Kyle Busch Motorsports in the Nationwide Series, where he won twice.

Kerri Walsh Jennings said she was pregnant when she won her third beach volleyball gold medal. Walsh Jennings said on NBC's "Today" show she is 11 weeks pregnant.

* Syracuse women's lacrosse coach Gary Gait and star Michelle Tumolo have been reprimanded by the NCAA for misconduct at the Division I national championship game in May. The NCAA said Gait's postgame press conference comments were critical of the officiating crew that worked the game, which the Orange lost to Northwestern, 8-6. Tumolo was found to have engaged in misconduct by making unsporting comments and placing her hands on a game official after being issued a second yellow card during the game.
