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.

Aaron Harang on Thursday became the latest Phillies starter to land on the disabled list, further increasing the chances the struggling righthander will remain with the team beyond the July 31 trade deadline. A day after allowing a season-worst eight runs and 14 hits in a 9-5 loss, the 37-year-old Harang received a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The move was made in conjunction with Chad Billingsley's being activated from the disabled list. Billingsley started Thursday against the Brewers.

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 MAIN subject out of Sixers practice Wednesday was an all too familiar one, and that was injuries. Guard Nik Stauskas didn't practice but worked out on his own as he continues to recover from a stress reaction in his right tibia. Christian Wood was restricted with a sore hamstring, and participated in 80 percent of practice. Furkan Aldemir also went for 80 percent, as he is suffering from plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

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.

Union designated player and midfielder Maurice Edu is back training fully with the team, but there is still not a date for him to make his season debut after being out all year with a stress fracture in his left leg. One thing for sure is his return isn't going to be this week, when the Union play twice. It's the last time the Union will have more than one game a week for the rest of the Major League Soccer season. Union coach Jim Curtin said he wants Edu to play in a game with the team's United Soccer League affiliate, the Bethlehem Steel, before returning to MLS action.

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.
