Larry Brown's visit to the Mayo Clinic hasn't cleared up his future with the Detroit Pistons. Doctors apparently could not give Brown a definite timetable for alleviating his bladder problem, which developed after hip surgery early this past season. Joe Dumars, the Pistons' president of basketball operations, and Joel Glass, Brown's agent, scheduled an appointment for Monday to further discuss Brown's status. Dumars was not available for comment yesterday. Brown says he wants to stay, if healthy, but he is rumored also to be interested in finding his way into the Knicks' coaching vacancy.

There's no telling how different the Wizards would be if they had drafted Ricky Rubio when they had the chance. Surely they couldn't be any worse than what they are now: a winless team that might make a run at the 1972-73 Sixers' 9-73 record. Kevin Love and Rubio (a No. 5 overall pick Minnesota acquired from the Wizards in 2009) controlled the game in the 93-72 win for the visiting Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday, while the Wizards were showered with boos during a 12-point fourth quarter as they dropped to 0-8. "There's really not much to say," Washington coach Flip Saunders said.

'Old bones' The Cavaliers have been winning without Ben Wallace, who doesn't want to rock the boat when he returns from a broken right leg he suffered Feb. 26. He says he doesn't care if he starts or comes off the bench and fears that if he comes back for the playoffs, he will be a distraction. There is no timetable for his return, but it doesn't appear as if he will be back anytime soon. "Old bones don't heal like they used to," the 34-year-old Wallace said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Milwaukee Bucks center Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely after fracturing his left ankle Wednesday night in Houston. Bogut's left foot came down awkwardly on a Houston player's foot after Bogut tried to block a shot in the first quarter. The Bucks said Thursday an MRI found Bogut fractured his ankle. The 7-foot center was playing in his 400th career NBA game. He left with three points, four rebounds and three blocked shots. Bogut has averaged 11.3 points, a team-high 8.3 rebounds and a team-high two blocked shots in 12 games this season.

WASHINGTON - Not surprisingly, 76ers president Rod Thorn has been impressed by his team during its quick start. The Sixers took an 8-3 record into Saturday's game at the Verizon Center against the Washington Wizards. Thorn said everybody in the main rotation has played well, giving special mention to center Spencer Hawes and guard Evan Turner. "Those two guys have improved more than anybody else," Thorn said before Saturday's game. Hawes entered the game averaging 11.0 points and 9.2 rebounds.

PAUL PIERCE scored 24 points and added 10 assists, and E'Twaun Moore added 16 points to help the Boston Celtics erase a 27-point deficit and beat the Orlando Magic for the second time this week, 91-83, last night. Pierce and Moore had 10 points each in the fourth quarter. Dwight Howard led the Magic with 16 points and 16 rebounds. Orlando had an 11-point lead entering the fourth quarter, but shot 2-for-17 in the final 12 minutes. The Celtics have won three straight for just the second time this season.

Andrew Bogut, the 7-footer from Australia, was chosen first last night in the NBA draft by the Milwaukee Bucks, becoming the first player in 5 years with U.S. college experience to be drafted No. 1 overall. The 20-year-old Bogut, who played two seasons at Utah and was the college player of the year, straightened his tie, adjusted his suit jacket and took a deep breath in the moments before commissioner David Stern summoned him to the podium onstage at Madison Square Garden. When his name was called, Bogut raised a clenched right fist.

The Chicago Bulls are downplaying a testy exchange between rookie Joakim Noah and Ben Wallace. "I know all about it. A couple of words passed back and forth between teammates. That's all it was," coach Jim Boylan said before the Bulls beat host Miami, 126-96, last night, handing the Heat its 11th straight loss. The two had a spat during the Bulls' loss to Orlando on Tuesday, but by yesterday, neither wanted to talk about it. Noah had a confrontation with assistant coach Ron Adams in practice Friday and sat out the next two games for disciplinary reasons.

MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Bucks interim coach Jim Boylan knows exactly what the 76ers are going through as they wait for Andrew Bynum to make his debut. The Bucks went through a similar situation with often-injured center Andrew Bogut. The Bucks selected Bogut with the top pick in the 2005 draft, but traded him to Golden State. Injuries were always a problem, and last year they finally gave up on waiting for the 7-footer to become the cornerstone of the franchise. "It's a little frustrating because you are always wondering when a guy is going to come back, so you have to block that out," said Boylan, an assistant the last four years who was promoted to interim coach after the Bucks fired Scott Skiles.

Andrew Bogut was defined during his two seasons at Utah by what he accomplished on the basketball court. But something Bogut didn't do has made him the favorite to become the No. 1 pick in tonight's NBA draft. Milwaukee has the top selection. After a freshman season in which he averaged 12.5 points and 9.9 rebounds per game, Bogut, a 7-foot center, was thinking of turning professional. He was born and raised in Australia by parents of Croatian descent. Bogut said he had several professional offers to play overseas.

SAN ANTONIO - The 76ers are easy targets right now. ESPN, sports-talk radio, newspapers, and websites are all taking swings at a team destined to win fewer than 20 games for the third consecutive season. There is talk about how their tanking for a third season is a disgrace. There are mentions that general manager Sam Hinkie is being greedy, since he already has young standouts to build with in Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. Media and fans say it's time to fill out the roster and stop prolonging the embarrassment.

We all know the 76ers have no intention of producing a winning product this season. Who can blame them? The Sixers couldn't come close to contending for an NBA title even if they tried. Teams such as Miami, Brooklyn, Oklahoma City, and San Antonio are simply on another level. Even the best-case scenario would have them becoming a seventh seed in the Eastern Conference and making an early exit from the postseason. But the objective is to win an NBA title, right? When the Sixers traded away Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel and weren't active in free agency, folks went ahead and called it the beginning of a "tanking" season.

WASHINGTON - This certainly wasn't the result that Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles was looking for. Skiles was hoping that his Milwaukee Bucks, who had lost three of their four previous games, would sweep into Washington on Wednesday and get back on track against a bad Wizards team. Washington would be the worst team in the NBA if not for Charlotte, which is threatening to record the lowest winning percentage in league history. But it didn't work out that way for the Bucks, who are the 76ers' chief rival for the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs - which begin next weekend.

Doug Collins understands basketball and he understands the NBA, which is not the same thing. At its best, the league presents the world's greatest athletes competing at the highest level. On a typical January day, you're more likely to see the NBA at a notch or two beneath that, when the world's greatest athletes are just crossing another game off the schedule. "If we play as a team, if we're well conditioned, if we compete every night, we'll win games just because some teams don't want to play every night," Collins said Monday after the 76ers' 94-82 victory over Milwaukee.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah - Even before Saturday night's resounding loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, 76ers coach Doug Collins knew his team needed rest. The Sixers were playing the last of six games in a nine-day stretch, were coming off an emotional victory over the Boston Celtics, and were just beginning a five-game road trip. A day off in Salt Lake City was announced hours before Collins' team sleepwalked through a 102-74 loss to the Bucks. Against Milwaukee, the Sixers turned the ball over 21 times - a sure sign of a "tired team" - and struggled to contest Milwaukee's outside shots.
