Furkan Aldemir's right-foot injury is worse than the 76ers originally thought. The new power forward missed practice Thursday because of plantar fasciitis and is doubtful to play Friday against the Charlotte Hornets at the Wells Fargo Center. Aldemir sat out the end of practice Wednesday because of a sore right heel. The 6-foot-9, 240-pounder, who signed with the Sixers on Monday, had experienced foot pain in his native Turkey. "It's not as bad as it sounds," Sixers coach Brett Brown said after practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

With the 76ers preparing to begin a Western road swing tonight at Utah, three players did not practice yesterday. Allen Iverson was in Virginia because of the illness of a close relative, while newcomer Kenny Thomas, acquired last week from the Rockets, was in Houston, tending to personal business. Derrick Coleman sat out practice yesterday because he had the flu. Todd MacCulloch did practice, one day after undergoing tests to see if there was inflammation of the nerves in his feet.

After not practicing for almost two weeks and not playing in 10 out of 11 games, 76ers co-captain Jeff Malone tried to get going again yesterday on his injured right heel. Although Malone felt pain-free before a mid-afternoon workout, he experienced enough pain while running lightly that he could not continue. Malone will be examined today by Stephen J. Lombardo in Los Angeles, where yesterday's attempted workout took place and where the team is spending a four-day break in its eight-game holiday road trip.

The 76ers' biggest wish came true a bit later than expected, but it was welcomed nonetheless. They activated forward/center Theo Ratliff from the injured list before last night's game against Minnesota. Ratliff, who had missed 25 games because of a stress fracture in his left ankle, had averaged 9.2 points and 2.4 blocks in the nine games he had played this season. He had missed the first six games because of the injury, returned for seven, then missed 11 because of soreness in the ankle.

Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Frank Garcia blames an herbal allergy remedy for his testing positive for the banned substance ephedra. The NFL has suspended Garcia without pay for four games for violating the league's banned-substances rule. "The way I look at is that I am an innocent victim of a well-intentioned policy," Garcia said late Wednesday night. Garcia said he took the medication, which was used by his wife, after an allergy attack during a golf outing in April and was randomly tested the same day. His appeal of the suspension was denied Wednesday.

Nets coach Avery Johnson was fired Thursday, his team having lost 10 of 13 games after a strong start to its first season in Brooklyn. "We don't have the same fire now that we did when we were 11-4," general manager Billy King said during a news conference in East Rutherford, N.J. Assistant P.J. Carlesimo will coach the Nets (14-14) on an interim basis. King would not comment on a report that the team planned to contact former Lakers coach Phil Jackson. Johnson was in the final year of a three-year, $12 million contract.

Whether the Phillies were simply filling out their minor league inventory or laying the groundwork for something bigger is known only to them. But amid a flurry of roster moves yesterday, the team also announced that it had agreed to terms on a minor league contract with outfielder Scott Podsednik. Since 2001, Podsednik has played for six organizations (including the White Sox twice). The Phillies will be the seventh, pending his passing of a physical. Podsednik, 35, started last season with the Royals, and was then traded in July to the Dodgers.

The 76ers missed their last chance to go against rookie sensation Grant Hill in last night's final game of the season against the Pistons. Nursing the same injury that has sidelined Sixers guard Jeff Malone for six weeks, Hill missed his ninth straight game with plantar fasciitis, a deep bruise of the left foot. But missing almost three weeks now hasn't made Hill any less a sensation. As of the last ballot count, the rookie swingman from Duke led all other NBA players in all-star voting.

Kings hopeful about future on court There's no real answer for what next season holds for the Sacramento Kings. First, there's the real possibility the team will move to Anaheim. Even without talk of a possible move, there's the potential for a lockout by NBA owners. Kings players speculate a lot about next season, but on the court they are determined to show their future is good. The Kings ended a two-game losing streak by dispatching the struggling Utah Jazz, 106-97, Sunday at Power Balance Pavilion.

Chicago fined forward Tyrus Thomas $10,000 yesterday, 1 day after the rookie said he only was interested in the money for the NBA's slam-dunk contest. Thomas was quoted in yesterday's editions of the Chicago Tribune as saying: "I'm just going to go out there, get my check and call it a day. " When asked if being around some of the game's greats could be beneficial for a rookie, he responded, "I'm just into the free money. That's it. " He apologized for his remarks last night.

Jesse Biddle was so good in April that there were pleas from fans in Philadelphia to get him to the big leagues immediately. The reports from double-A Reading were astonishingly good, with the highlight being a seven-inning, one-hit performance at Harrisburg that included 16 strikeouts. He followed that with a one-hit performance over six innings against New Hampshire that included 10 strikeouts. Around that same time, however, Biddle began having coughing fits. He'd wake up in the morning with headaches and eventually had to see a doctor.

After taking a red-eye flight from Los Angeles to Philadelphia, Simon Gagne missed the Flyers' morning skate Wednesday because he needed to catch up on sleep. Now he hopes to wake up the Flyers' offense. He got off to a good start, scoring a power-play goal, his first tally of the season, in the Flyers' 4-1 win over Washington. Acquired Tuesday from the Kings for a conditional fourth-round pick, the veteran winger began the night on a line with Sean Couturier and Max Talbot. Gagne received a rousing ovation, and he waved to the home crowd as a video of his career was shown on the scoreboard during a first-period stoppage.

LAST MONTH, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said it was just "a formality" that the Phillies would pick up the team option on Carlos Ruiz' contract this offseason. With the 2012 season officially ending Sunday, Amaro wasted little time in keeping his word. The Phils began offseason chores by exercising the option on Ruiz' contract on Monday. Ruiz, a first-time All-Star in 2012, will earn $5 million in 2013. He can become a free agent after the season. Ruiz, who turns 34 in January, signed a 3-year, $8.85 million contract before the 2010 season that included a club option for a fourth.

NEW YORK - After making weak but effective contact, Carlos Ruiz busted out of the batter's box and reached first base safely on a hit back through the middle against R.A. Dickey on Monday. But it wasn't so much that Ruiz arrived safely. It's that he arrived pain-free. For the first time since returning from the disabled list on Sept. 7, Ruiz had started back-to-back games. He was back behind the plate again on Wednesday but on the sidelines when the Phillies wrapped up a three-game, 4-day series with the Mets on Thursday night.

NEW YORK - Fresh off a weekend in which the Phillies lost three out of four games to the worst team in baseball, Charlie Manuel could not have been blamed for running up the white flag. Instead, he ran out a lineup that featured Carlos Ruiz behind the plate, Kevin Frandsen at third base, and the rest of his regulars at their respective positions. "I think right now, we are going to stay the course where we still have a chance and we can still win," Manuel said before the start of Monday's 3-1 win over the Mets.

Catcher Carlos Ruiz, who is generally upbeat, was admittedly down when he received the news that he would be the latest Phillie to join the disabled list. In the midst of a career season, Ruiz got the word on Friday night that he would be out for an estimated four to six weeks with a partial tear in his left foot. Ruiz has been suffering from plantar fasciitis. On Saturday the Phillies placed Ruiz on the disabled list and recalled infielder Hector Luna from triple-A Lehigh Valley.

NEW YORK - Tyreke Evans looks much older than 22, plays older, and certainly feels older. After being named a McDonald's High School all-American in 2008 while playing for American Christian Academy in Aston, the 6-foot-6 guard from Chester appeared to be on the fast track to the NBA. He stayed just one year at the University of Memphis, was the No. 4 player selected in the 2009 NBA draft, by the Sacramento Kings, and was named rookie of the...

LIKE JUST about every NBA player who doesn't know if and when the upcoming season will begin, Sacramento Kings star Tyreke Evans has busied himself preparing as if there will be in the near future. And just like many of his peers, he is no closer to knowing what's going on than the fans who pay to see him play. "People think that we know more because we're players, but we're just like them, we're clueless," Evans said yesterday at the Science and Discovery High School in his native Chester, where he was joining with VSP Vision Care to help provide free eye exams to students in need.
