Charlotte Hornets guard Eddie Jones underwent surgery yesterday to repair injuries he suffered when his hand hit the rim during an attempted shot block last month. A surgeon repaired a flexor tendon, an artery and a nerve in Jones's right hand, the team said in a statement. The procedure was performed by Dr. Alan Ward at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte. Jones's fingers will be in a splint for six weeks and he'll undergo an additional six weeks of rehabilitation. He is expected to be ready for training camp next season.

Villanova forward/center Jason Fraser underwent surgery yesterday on the right hand that he fractured during the Wildcats' 83-78 victory over Providence on Jan. 11. The 6-foot-10 junior also had surgery on the hand Jan. 14 and missed four games before playing in Villanova's last 18. A second procedure was needed because the injury did not mend properly. "The surgery on Jason went very well," said Randall Kulp, who performed yesterday's surgery. "We grafted bone from another part of Jason's wrist into the area that wasn't healing.

Don't count on seeing Ken Griffey Jr. at the All-Star Game next month at Veterans Stadium. The Seattle Mariners' star centerfielder had hand surgery yesterday and will be sidelined about a month. Team physician Larry Pedegana said he expects a "full and complete recovery. " Pedegana removed a chipped-off piece of the hamate bone in the heel of Griffey's right hand during a 40-minute procedure. Because the bone is so small, repairing it is not feasible. Griffey is expected to be out three to five weeks and probably will miss the July 9 All-Star Game.

Less than three weeks ago, Dave Hollins' fly balls didn't have much distance. Not enough strength yet. And if that wasn't enough of a problem, the unpredictable throws from the Phillies third baseman were turning first baseman John Kruk into an overweight Fred Astaire, dancing every which way in an attempt to make a lunging stab or scoop. "It wasn't a fun time to be playing," Hollins said before last night's game against the Montreal Expos. "No one wants to go out and play like that.

Chris Simon took a leave from the New York Islanders yesterday, agreeing with the team that he needed time away from hockey following his latest penalty for attempting to injure an opponent. Simon missed the first five games of this season while completing a 25-game ban - his sixth NHL suspension - meted out in March. He could be in line for another long penalty after he took down and stepped on Pittsburgh's Jarkko Ruutu last weekend. Simon met yesterday with Islanders owner Charles Wang, general manager Garth Snow and coach Ted Nolan and they agreed the 35-year-old left winger, a former Flyers draft pick, should seek help.

Rajon Rondo scored 17 points with 12 assists and 10 rebounds on Monday night to lead the Boston Celtics to a 100-89 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. It was Rondo's third triple-double of the season and the 26th of his career, including playoffs. Paul Pierce scored 19 and Avery Bradley added 16 for Boston, which won for a season-high sixth consecutive game. Hakim Warrick and Ramon Sessions had 16 points apiece for the Bobcats, who lost their third straight and their 23d in the last 25 games since opening the season 7-5. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 10 with eight rebounds.

Yesterday was busy for the Miami Heat, beginning with surgery for center Alonzo Mourning and culminating with last night's 107-103 overtime loss to the visiting New Jersey Nets. Mourning, injured in Wednesday night's loss at Atlanta, had surgery to repair torn knee and quadriceps tendons in his right leg. He is likely out for the season and perhaps done for his career. He previously has said that this would be his final season. Mourning's injury was tinged by irony: It came on the fourth anniversary of the kidney transplant that saved his life.

Dustin Pedroia won in a runaway, just like his Red Sox in the World Series. The little Boston second baseman with the big swing was an easy pick for AL Rookie of the Year, while Milwaukee third baseman Ryan Braun barely edged Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for the NL honor yesterday. Generously listed at 5-9, Pedroia became a fan favorite at Fenway Park with his all-out style. Plus, few knew he played with a broken left hand down the stretch. "Everyone doubted me at every level I've been to, saying I'm too small, I'm not fast enough, my arm's not strong enough," said Pedroia, who last week had hand surgery for a crack that was discovered in early September.

THE 28 STITCHES over his right eye weren't enough to keep Manny Pacquiao from headlining his own postfight concert, which went on as usual into the early-morning hours on the Las Vegas Strip. He escaped with a win Saturday night against Juan Manuel Marquez , but that only tells part of the story. Seemingly invincible over the past 3 years, he looked anything but in scoring a majority decision over his Mexican nemesis in a win that enraged both Marquez and thousands of his supporters who packed the MGM Grand arena.

THERE WAS A LONG pause on the other end of the phone. "The year from hell is over," Chris Pronger said. That's how Pronger described his injury-riddled season, which officially came to a close on Friday night in Boston - ending the season the same exact way it started in October, with Pronger watching from afar because of injury. After slogging through exactly 118 games last season - including all 82 games with the Flyers, six with the gold medal-winning Canadian Olympic team in Vancouver, seven preseason games and 23 Stanley Cup playoff games - Pronger skated in just 50 games in the regular season this year, his lowest total since 2002-03.

Much to the disappointment of the Buffalo Sabres, Flyers captain Mike Richards was not suspended Monday for his hit on Tim Connolly in Sunday's Game 6. The Flyers said the NHL did not have a hearing on the incident. That means Richards, who had a pair of assists in the Flyers' 5-4 overtime win, will be in the lineup for the decisive seventh game Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Connolly's head hit the boards, and the Sabres said he will not play in Game 7, but they are expected to get Derek Roy back in the lineup.

A Flyers source said it was unlikely that injured defenseman Chris Pronger would play Game 3 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series in Buffalo on Monday. The Flyers, minus Pronger (again), outlasted the Sabres on Saturday, 5-4, to even the best-of-seven series at one game apiece. In Saturday's 3-3 first period, the Flyers struggled to clear players from in front of the net - a Pronger specialty. They also continued to have problems on the power play, which misses Pronger as its quarterback.

SUNRISE, Fla. - Nobody knows Chris Pronger's body like Chris Pronger. And Pronger, holding himself out of the last two games because of a right-hand injury sustained on Feb. 24 when he blocked a shot against the Islanders, knew there was something wrong. Something that an MRI and multiple X-rays did not show. His intuition was spot on. Pronger will undergo surgery this morning in Cleveland by noted hand specialist Dr. Tom Graham to repair a small fracture found in a CT scan on Sunday.

TAMPA, Fla. - When Chase Utley received a cortisone shot on Friday, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said the Phillies should know "before the end of the weekend" if the injection helped relieve the pain in Utley's right knee. On Sunday, when Amaro addressed reporters on Domonic Brown's hand surgery, he said an update on Utley would come in the next 24 to 48 hours. On Monday, Amaro said through a team spokesman that there is nothing to report as of yet on Utley.
