This was not the senior football season that Shawnee offensive lineman Tom Smith had in mind, especially after such a successful junior year. The 6-foot-4, 257-pound Smith was a first-team all-conference choice as a junior. During the summer and into preseason camp, he was limited by a sore back. Smith finally got it examined the first week of September and was told he had a stress fracture. Doctors suggested he rest for two to three months. So while Smith isn't out for the season, there is no guarantee he will play this year, either.

It appears St. Joseph's will have to nurture Delonte West for the remainder of the season, hold its breath, and hope its leading scorer can maintain his outstanding level of play during the Hawks' drive toward March Madness. West, the 6-foot-3 sophomore guard who is averaging 19.2 points a game, learned yesterday that he has a stress fracture in the lower part of his right leg. The injury was confirmed when West had a magnetic-resonance-imaging test. After missing Saturday's 76-72 win over St. Bonaventure, West returned to action last night against La Salle at the Palestra.

Losing the Big Hurt is turning into a bigger loss than expected for the Chicago White Sox. The Sox, chasing Cleveland in the American League Central, learned yesterday first baseman Frank Thomas, the major league RBI leader (85), will miss at least three weeks. Tests revealed Thomas, one of baseball's most durable players, has a stress fracture of the long bone of his left foot from the ankle to the toe. The two-time Most Valuable Player, in so much pain he couldn't compete in the home run contest or the All-Star Game in Philadelphia, was placed on the 15-day disabled list - his first trip to the DL since entering the league in 1990.

Phoenixville's Stacy Robinson had been waiting, and not very patiently, for this to happen. "My coach (Jack Kraynak) kept telling me that one of these days I would surprise myself and run a good race," said Robinson, who has been slowly rounding into shape after suffering a stress fracture in her shin in the fall. On Friday night at the girls' indoor track Meet of Champions at Lehigh, Robinson's wait was over. She ran well from start to finish and won the 1,000- yard race in 2 minutes, 38.58 seconds.

Saint Joseph's junior forward Dave Mallon will be sidelined for at least 2 weeks with a stress fracture in the second metatarsal of his right foot, the school announced yesterday. Last season, Mallon had a stress fracture in the third metatarsal of the same foot, which caused him to miss the first seven games of the season. Mallon will be re-evaluated by doctors after 2 weeks to determine his return to practice. The Hawks open at Kansas on Nov. 23 and host Davidson at the Palestra on Nov. 27. St. Joe's also announced the signings of three players - wing Edwin Lashley and forwards Alvin Mofunanya and Ahmad Nivins - to national letters of intent.

Villanova forward Jason Fraser will be sidelined indefinitely with a stress fracture in his left heel, the basketball team said yesterday. "We'll reevaluate it in three weeks to see if it's healed or on the mend, and then we'll make a decision on what comes next," Wildcats coach Jay Wright said. With four players due to serve suspensions of varying lengths at the beginning of the season - they were among a group of players who violated an NCAA rule involving the use of phone cards - Fraser's loss will further hinder Villanova as it navigates its early-season schedule.

With jagged steps, her shoulders hung high atop crutches, Thais Serrano moved through the hallways of Central High yesterday. She hurt every time her weight shifted to her upper right leg, where a stress fracture was crawling through her femur. And she was aching because she won't be able to run and feel the wind brush her auburn hair for eight weeks. "But I'm OK. I'm OK," she told her cross-country teammates yesterday, with a heroine's grimace. Only a day before, Serrano ran through injury, set a school record, finished second in the Public League cross-country championships and led Central to its first girls' title in the sport.

Council Rock's Stacey Johnson has braved a hurricane and disregarded a stress fracture in the pursuit of her athletic dreams. As rain generated by Hurricane Floyd pounded Newtown on the morning of Sept. 16, Johnson and her parents, Ed and Sue, packed their Chevrolet van and drove 712 miles to Columbia, S.C. They didn't want to break their appointment to tour the University of South Carolina, one of two schools besides Penn State offering the 5-foot-10, 180-pound athlete a four-year scholarship to play softball.

Zach Eflin pitched the last few weeks with a fracture in his right foot, which was not discovered until Friday and will likely be enough to shut down the rookie pitcher for the rest of the season. The stress fracture was discovered when Eflin had an MRI on his knees. He was placed on the disabled list last week with tendinitis in both knees. Eflin said he had received treatment for the foot, not knowing it was fractured. He does not know how the injury occurred. Manager Pete Mackanin said, "It's unlikely that he will be back this year.

Brett Brown sees what everyone who pays attention to the 76ers see. The dynamics of the team have changed since Jerry Colangelo was hired as chairman of basketball operations last month. Prior to Colangelo, the Sixers were content to roll out what they called "the youngest basketball team in the history of the NBA. " They also had a staff full of young coaches with player development background. And they chose not to re-sign veteran point guard Ish Smith during free-agency period.

The 76ers are determined to make sure Joel Embiid does not have another setback with the navicular bone in his right foot. Five doctors were involved in the center's bone-graft surgery to repair the bone Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, the Sixers said. "Everyone involved - our organization, Joel, and his agent, Darren Matsubara . . . worked diligently to assemble this highly sought-after group of professionals," Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement.

I clearly remember that I was sick the week they taught orthopedic medicine in journalism school, and everyone was still buzzing about it when I returned, particularly the really interesting part about the treatment of tarsal navicular stress fractures. So, when it comes to the debate regarding Joel Embiid - who is going to be a beast of a center in the NBA if he can ever, you know, play - I am woefully unqualified to judge whether the 76ers made a mistake by drafting him, a mistake in choosing his initial care, a mistake in letting him do crazy dunks during warm-ups last season, a mistake in not properly monitoring his zeal for rehabilitation, or a mistake in what they announced on Saturday to be the next step (you will pardon the expression)

LAS VEGAS - Suddenly, the 76ers find themselves with more questions in their frontcourt. Joel Embiid, selected third in last summer's draft, will have a second surgery on his right foot and will miss all of next season, the team announced Saturday night after an Inquirer report earlier in the day. Sources said the team will decide whether the surgery will take place in North Carolina or at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. "A collective decision has been made that the best approach to promote full healing would be to proceed with a bone graft of the fracture site," general manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement.

SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers have yet to decide on Joel Embiid's playing status and are still acquiring information regarding the healing of his right foot. "No change as of yet," Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie said Thursday. "A number of meetings are happening about that, even one today. But we have meetings almost every day about that. We don't have anything ready to announce. " The team announced last month that Embiid had a setback in his recuperation. The 2014 first-round draft pick from Kansas missed what would have been his rookie season after undergoing surgery last June to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone of his right foot.

The 76ers were ordered to pay the New Orleans Pelicans $3 million by the NBA last season for not fully disclosing Jrue Holiday's injury history before he was traded two years ago, according to two sources. The Sixers traded Holiday, an all-star point guard, to the Pelicans on the night of the 2013 NBA draft for the rights to Nerlens Noel, the sixth overall pick that year. The sources said Holiday played with stress fractures in his lower right leg during his final season with the Sixers.

IT WAS A DAY of speculation concerning the navicular bone in the right foot of 76ers center Joel Embiid. Saturday, of course, the team sent a statement that a CT scan showed that the healing in the 7-footer's foot wasn't as far along as anticipated. While a source told the Daily News  Monday the organization was still gathering information from different doctors, other reports ran the gamut from Embiid needing surgery, to not needing surgery, to possibly missing the entire next season.
