Golf’s biggest questions: Rickie Fowler’s major chances, Rory McIlroy’s return

Christmas is two weeks away, and the golf offseason has finally arrived … right in the middle of the 2017-18 PGA Tour season. I don’t really understand it, but I’m going to enjoy it because golf cranks up again just a few weeks after Christmas with the two-tournament Hawaii swing, and then we’re off on our nine-month journey. There is, of course, all kinds of intrigue going into the 2018 calendar year. There already was before Tiger Woods started swinging his driver like he was Tony Finau down in the Bahamas two weeks ago, and now that intrigue has been

OKC’s George: Pacers’ success brings ‘closure’

3:01 PM ET INDIANAPOLIS — As he returns to Indianapolis to play in the arena he called home for his first seven NBA seasons, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George said Wednesday that he has regrets about how things ended with the Pacers. But he also has closure. “I think both sides — myself and the front office — would definitely like to have handled things better,” George said. “I for sure will take ownership on that. But I have no regrets on the outcome.” George declined to say specifically what those regrets are. “I know what I would’ve changed,”

‘Don’t let him shoot it!’ Inside Harden’s terrifying trick

8:58 AM ET HOUSTON — “By yourself! By yourself!” Cleveland Cavaliers coach Ty Lue hollers from the bench after a ball screen set at the top of the arc prompts power forward Jeff Green to switch onto James Harden, the Houston Rockets superstar who considers seeing a bigger defender alone in space “probably one of the best feelings in the world.” The game got close for the Houston Rockets, but the greatness of James Harden and Chris Paul held up in Portland. Ryan Anderson was one point shy of matching his season high, while Chris Paul nearly had a triple-double

The downside of modernizing the Rules of Golf

For the better part of the last decade, officials at the USGA and R&A have offered a simple refrain to anyone professing difficulty understanding the nuances of the Rules of Golf. Be patient, they insisted. Relief is on the way. This promise, at last, is close to being fulfilled. In March, the governing bodies jointly revealed their first pass at a “modernized” Rules book that tackled several of the game’s most complex, confusing and confounding capstones. Having solicited feedback from the golf community, officials from the two groups are currently in the throes of crafting the final text (sources say

Superintendent seeks revenge at Sun City golf tournament

Each December, Sun City golfers take on one of the most fun and most challenging games of the year during the annual Superintendent’s Revenge. From maneuvering around giant inflatables to putting with a hockey stick, residents faced a new obstacle at every hole during the tournament held at Argent Lakes and Okatie Creek golf courses Dec. 5. The annual tournament, now in its sixth year, is an opportunity for residents to not only have fun, but to give back to the community as well. Each player brought at least one new, unwrapped toy or book donation for Bluffton Self Help.

LeBron praises Lonzo, sees first-year parallels

3:02 AM ET CLEVELAND — LeBron James sat in front of his locker Tuesday night following the Cavaliers‘ 123-114 win over the Atlanta Hawks, a game in which he tied his career high in assists with 17, but he wasn’t ready to talk about his team’s 15th victory in its past 16 games. A television stationed across the locker room from James showed the Los Angeles Lakers battling the New York Knicks in overtime. James was going to watch the finish to the Knicks’ 113-109 win over the Cavs’ next opponent — the Lakers and their lightning-rod rookie, Lonzo Ball

Source: Rose apologizes to Cavs for absence

CLEVELAND — Cavaliers guard Derrick Rose apologized to his teammates at shootaround on Wednesday for his recent absence and referenced frustration with his left ankle injury as the cause for his nearly two-week exile, a team source told ESPN.

Rose’s comments were brief and delivered to the team on the court before the Cavs beat the Sacramento Kings 101-95 for their 13th straight win, the source said.

Several of Rose’s teammates, LeBron James included, already had said publicly that Rose did not owe them an apology for the time he missed. However, the three-time All-Star took it upon himself to clear the air.

“He didn’t have to, but he did,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of Rose’s message to the team. “He asked me could he talk to the team before we started shootaround and addressed the team. Everyone welcomed him back and is happy he is here, and that’s it.”

As the source added, “It wasn’t a big deal and didn’t need to be.”

Rose, who has missed 17 of the Cavs’ 27 games this season — including the past 13 straight — because of a sprained ankle that he suffered on Oct. 20, has no timetable for when he will return to the court, according to Lue.

“Just going through his rehab now, trying to get healthy,” Lue said. “It won’t be in the next few games or nothing like that, so just got to see how he takes to treatment.”

A Cavs spokesman said Rose would likely address the media for the first time since leaving the Cavs on Nov. 22 either on Friday in Indianapolis or Saturday in Cleveland, before the Cavaliers host the Philadelphia 76ers.

Lue said he was unaware if Rose kept up his ankle rehab on his own time while he was away from the team.

The 29-year-old former league MVP is averaging 14.3 points on 47.0 percent shooting, 2.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists in seven games — all of which he started — for the Cavs this season.

It is unclear what Rose’s role will be when he gets healthy again. The Cavs reeled off 12 straight wins (and counting) with Rose out of the lineup and settled into a rhythm with Jose Calderon as the starting point guard. Further complicating Rose’s return is the fact that Isaiah Thomas is expected to miss a maximum of three more weeks before he makes his season debut after being sidelined with a hip injury.

Lue said that the understated Rose was not particularly emotional when he spoke to the team.

“It was just good to have him back and hear him talk, because he’s not a big talker,” Lue said. “You know he’s a quiet guy. But just hearing what he had to say and then just seeing how everyone was welcoming him back and was happy he’s here.”

Rose will be at the Cavs’ game against the Kings on Wednesday night, and his teammates plan to check in with him individually when the opportunity presents itself in the coming days, according to a team source.
