After having surgery on his shattered right wrist Monday, New York Knicks center Patrick Ewing reportedly told teammate John Starks that he would be back in time for the playoffs. Of course, we all know about Ewing and his predictions.Unfortunately for Ewing, the injury that occurred against the Milwaukee Bucks on Dec. 20 could be career-threatening because the ligaments in his wrist were shredded. And that would be the end of the Knicks as we know them -- a highly competitive but inconsistent group that seemingly everyone loved to hate.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- From the upper floors of the place that Sam Cassell calls home these days, there's a spectacular view of the New York skyline. In an area where traffic jams are a daily nuisance, Cassell's commute might take a minute. Two minutes tops.Still, even with the impressive view and the convenient commute, living in a hotel is a drag. Cassell knows. Playing on his third team this season, Cassell -- currently wearing the uniform of the New Jersey Nets -- has been living out of hotels for nearly four months.

Point guardAvery Johnson vs. Charlie Ward: Johnson has done a great job hitting open shots during the playoffs, shooting an impressive 48.3 percent from the field. He has flourished since the Spurs went to the pick-and-roll earlier in the season, and is capable of beating a defender off the dribble. Ward is a starter in name only -- the bulk of the important minutes will go to Chris Childs, a solid defender who also hit several big three-pointers in the Indiana series.Edge: SpursShooting guardMario Elie vs. Allan Houston: Elie provides a toughness that the Spurs had lacked in the past.

NEW YORK -- The voice on the telephone was a bit matter of fact, coming from someone who had just signed a six-year, $21 million deal with the New Jersey Nets.The often-percolating Sam Cassell was a bit subdued yesterday, perhaps knowing that at another time -- such as next summer, when teams are expected to spend in the frenzied fashion of holiday shoppers on free agents -- he might have landed the $5 million salary that had been dancing in his head two months ago.Not that $3.5 million a year is too bad. It is less than point guard Jason Kidd's $5.2 million salary next year in Phoenix, but more than the $3.1 million Chris Childs will make with the New York Knicks.
