Chase Utley was late. A Thursday morning physical examination, needed to finalize his two-year, $27 million contract extension, forced him to hurry. He whisked through the Phillies clubhouse with a dress shirt on a hanger. It was 10:35 a.m. The Phillies gave 42,510 fans a "Pride of the Phillies" poster that showed Utley's sweet lefthanded swing. He was awarded with something called the "Heart And Hustle" award in a pregame ceremony. He scampered around the diamond in a 12-1 victory with two doubles and two runs scored.

Kenyon Martin was driving himself crazy. "I needed to get out of the house," Martin said last week. "I didn't want to lose touch with the guys. If I [missed] the whole year, I didn't know how it was going to be. " So Martin went on the Nuggets' eastern road trip this week, not knowing what he'd do on the bench, not certain of what kind of player he'd be when or if he recovered from his latest knee operation. This one, another microfracture procedure, will cost him the rest of this season and officially throws the career of the first pick in the 2000 draft in doubt.

Mark McGwire's sore knee kept him out of the Cardinals' lineup last night, and the majors' home-run leader might not play at all the rest of the weekend heading into the all-star break. St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said he told McGwire, who left after three innings Thursday due to tendinitis in his right knee, to be ready to pinch-hit in the opener of a three-game series against the Giants. But trainer Barry Weinberg said he was unavailable. An MRI Thursday confirmed the diagnosis.

The first visible sign that something was amiss came four hours before last night's first pitch at Joe Robbie Stadium. Little-used lefthander Michael Mimbs was on the mound, pitching two simulated innings to Jon Zuber, Mike Benjamin, Lee Tinsley and Kevin Jordan. Later, manager Jim Fregosi filled in the blanks: Opening Day starter Sid Fernandez, 2-2 with a 2.64 earned run average, will miss his next start with a sore right knee. Mike Grace, who was penciled in to start against the defending world champion Braves in Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, will instead pitch tonight's series finale against the Marlins.

The Carolina Panthers learned yesterday that linebacker Lamar Lathon will be lost for the season and safety Mike Minter will be sidelined longer than originally thought. Lathon, a starting outside linebacker since the franchise's expansion season in 1995, has had worsening knee problems. He underwent arthroscopic surgery last week to have loose bodies cleaned out, his fourth knee operation of 1998. Minter, a starting strong safety, also underwent arthroscopic knee surgery last week, but had been expected to return to the lineup this week in preparation for Sunday's home game against Green Bay. The team said Minter, who is expected to be released from the hospital tomorrow, would likely miss six to eight weeks.

The Eagles made their first foray into the free-agent supermarket yesterday, buying themselves one of the most decorated tight ends in the game. Some of those decorations are awards; some of them are surgeon's scars. Mark Bavaro, a once-great New York Giant and more recently a Cleveland Brown with delicate knees, signed what is believed to be a two-year, $2.2 million deal with the Eagles, who are apparently willing to take a chance on Bavaro's returning to his Pro Bowl form of five seasons ago. Neither the Eagles nor Bavaro would disclose terms of the contract.

Any chance that the 76ers had at having Andrew Bynum play for them this season - or perhaps ever - is gone. Bynum will undergo surgery on both knees Tuesday that will prevent him from playing. "After many months of rehabilitation and consulting with numerous doctors, Andrew and the doctors treating him determined that this is the best course of action at this point," general manager Tony DiLeo said in a statement. The 25-year-old Bynum, who will have part of his $16.5 million salary defrayed by insurance, may never play for the Sixers, despite the fact that the team holds his Larry Bird rights and can pay him more than any other team.

While the Phillies get set to start the season Thursday in Pittsburgh, Chase Utley will be in Arizona taking the next step in his return from knee trouble. In consultation with the Phillies and their medical staff, Utley will work with his personal therapist in Phoenix beginning Wednesday. The hope, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said, is that Utley will join the team during its trip to the West Coast. The 10-game swing begins April 16 in San Francisco and includes stops in San Diego and Arizona.

In consultation with the Phillies and their medical staff, Utley will work with his personal therapist in Phoenix beginning Wednesday. The hope, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said, is that Utley would join the team some time during its trip out West. The 10-game swing begins April 16 in San Francisco and also includes stops in San Diego and Arizona.

The playing status of all-pro guard Ron Solt remains in limbo at least for the next few days. Dogged by tendinitis in both of his knees, particularly the left one, Solt said yesterday that he was willing to start playing, even if it meant taking cortisone injections, as soon as possible. The Eagles want to make sure that he is ready before he gets back on the field and say they are opposed to the cortisone injections. Eagles coach Buddy Ryan said yesterday that the guard, acquired this month from the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for two draft picks, would be deactivated for tomorrow's game against the Atlanta Falcons, but the amount of time Solt will remain on the shelf remains a mystery.
