The Flyers must hold their breath a little longer to learn about the immediate future of injured goalie Antero Niittymaki. He either will be available to start the season or he'll have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip, which would likely cost him the first two months. Niittymaki, who cut his practice short Tuesday when his hip flared up, was scheduled to be evaluated today in Nashville by orthopedic surgeon Thomas Byrd. After seeing the results of an MRI examination on Wednesday, Byrd told the Flyers that Niittymaki may be able to postpone surgery until after the season and instead play by strengthening the hip and receiving a series of cortisone injections.

The Baltimore Orioles are beginning to envision a season without Albert Belle, whose ailing right hip sidelined him for the third straight game yesterday. Belle received treatment for his arthritic hip yesterday morning but declared himself unable to play against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The limping slugger has yet to even attempt to slide this spring, and his injury is showing no sign of improvement. Orioles manager Mike Hargrove is preparing for the worst. "If it comes down to Albert can't play, we'll have people ready," Hargrove said.

CLEVELAND - With jellied legs and an aching hip, Jeremy Maclin again displayed Sunday why he is the Eagles' No. 1 receiver. Maclin led the team with seven catches, 96 yards and one IV. "He showed a lot of toughness," said veteran slot receiver Jason Avant, who holds a Ph.D. in the field of toughness. "It was huge, him coming back like that. " Maclin began the day feeling peaked. He never was quite right, he said. His day soon got worse. He left the 17-16 Eagles win for a play early in the second quarter after Browns defensive back Dmitri Patterson shoved him out of bounds.

Live, Kitty Pryde is a walking paradox, a wound-up ball of nervous insecurity who can summon the bravado it takes to command those in her crowd to bow their heads in prayer to Justin Bieber. ("Dear Bieber, please stop singing about sex. ") Makes sense. She's a walking paradox in everyday life, too, a teenage, white-as-snow redheaded Claire's employee from Daytona Beach, Fla., who, depending on your view, is either hip hop's unlikely savior or the final nail in the coffin of the once-proud genre.

Scott Eyre said yesterday that he was "more than 90 percent" sure he would retire at the end of this season. Eyre, 37, is a veteran of 13 major-league seasons and will be a free agent after this year. In 597 career games before last night, he was 26-30 with a 4.33 earned run average in 632 innings. All but 32 of his appearances were as a reliever. Eyre was 0-1 with a 2.84 ERA in 12 2/3 innings this year. "My wife is probably ready for me to be home," said Eyre, who has two sons, ages 8 and 10. "I've been playing for 13 years, and it's basically all she's ever known.

Allen Iverson can run, but he can't explode off his left leg. And until he can, he likely will remain on the sideline. That included last night against the Phoenix Suns, when Iverson - rehabilitating from a left hip pointer - was not available to the 76ers for the fifth time in the last six games. It might well include Monday night's home game against the Milwaukee Bucks, for which he is listed as "doubtful. " Iverson's injury includes a small tear in a muscle connecting to the pelvic area.

Miss Diana Ross sang at the Valley Forge Music Fair on Monday night, and she gave a good performance, a tasteful, quick-paced rehash of a career that has spanned four decades and several musical eras. We must call her Miss Ross because she is a diva. She is the best kind of diva, though, a person who expects to be treated like a superstar but who seems genuinely pleased when she is. Still, you couldn't help notice the lack of passion. Miss Ross seemed to be giving a performance that, while tasteful - there's that word again - did not involve a lot of effort.

Relax, fellas, there are no sweeping fashion commandments this season. While there are several strong spring trends, most notably layering, western and grunge, none of them are dictates meant to be embraced wholeheartedly. Rather, you need only update your wardrobe with the items that suit your personality or the image you are trying to project. As in women's wear, severely tailored clothes are now reserved for the office or very special occasions. Casual ease is the buzzword in menswear.

They lost their starting pitcher, Terry Mulholland, after 10 pitches. They fell into a 7-2 hole. They watched their struggling middle reliever, Roger Mason, allow back-to- back-to-back homers in the sixth to a Cubs trio that didn't remind anyone of the legends on Murderers' Row. It wasn't a good night for the Phillies. The Chicago Cubs, hitting three straight homers for the first time in 16 years, defeated the Phils, 7-6, at Veterans Stadium and captured their fourth straight victory.

Early in December, at an indoor track meet, Upper Merion junior Matt Whigham had just won the 30-meter dash and looked ready to rebound from a spring season that had been plagued by injury. "My hip was sore the whole spring," Whigham said. "I kept running, but it began to hurt to the point that by the end of a race, I was limping to the finish. " His doctor said it was normal growing pains, nothing to worry about. And here was Whigham beginning the winter season in fast form.
