Rivers not sure he'll return to Clippers

The Clippers' issues now seem to include their head coach. [Doc Rivers] said Monday he believes owner Donald Sterling made the racial comments attributed to him in a controversy that has drawn worldwide scorn, and he is considering his own future with the franchise. Rivers, who signed a three-year, $21 million contract last summer to become the Clippers coach and vice president of basketball operations, said he's unsure whether he'll return to the team if Sterling remains owner. "I don't want to answer that question," Rivers said. "I don't know. This just happened." ... Rivers said he was offered an opportunity to speak with Sterling. He quickly declined. "I have been asked if I need to talk to him, with Donald, and I passed, quite honestly," Rivers said. (Yahoo Sports) Comment

Vince Young expected at Browns minicamp

For now, any Texas job on the horizon will have to wait. Free-agent quarterback Vince Young took a physical with the Cleveland Browns and is expected to be in minicamp with the team this week. General manager Ray Farmer said the Browns have been closely tracking Young, who hasn't played in an NFL game since 2011. The 30-year-old played for Philadelphia that year, making three starts. He spent his first five NFL seasons with Tennessee. Young has gone 31-19 as a starter and twice made the Pro Bowl. The Browns want to add a veteran to back up Brian Hoyer, who is penciled in as the starter but is coming off knee surgery. Farmer said free-agent quarterback Tyler Thigpen also will be in minicamp this week. He last played for Buffalo in 2012. (The Columbus Dispatch) Comment

Still no timetable for Braun's return

And he'll continue to wait. An MRI changed the diagnosis of the exact nature of Brewers rightfielder Ryan Braun's right side injury but there still was no timetable Monday for the return to action of Braun and shortstop Jean Segura. Braun said doctors have determined he has an oblique strain, not an intercostal strain, which is a bit more complicated because it involves the area between the ribs. Accordingly, Braun was hopeful he would respond to treatment more quickly. "I think it's good to know exactly what we're dealing with we can figure out exactly how to treat it," said Braun. "The primary purpose of the MRI was to figure out where the primary issue is so we can figure out what to do with it. I get treatment twice a day and hope for the best and see what happens."
