Nuggets guard Chauncey Billups will miss two games to give his strained left groin time to heal. Billups, averaging 17.1 points and 5.7 assists, injured the groin Dec. 16 against the Rockets and sat out three straight games. The All-Star point guard returned on Christmas Day in Portland but didn't play in the second half of a 107-96 loss. The Nuggets said in an injury update that the move was "not a setback" and the goal was to avoid a "lingering problem." The Nuggets lost to the Mavericks at home on Sunday and will travel to Sacramento on Monday.

For the third time this season, Morgan State lost a game by less than a field goal. But unlike setbacks to Eastern Michigan on Aug. 30 and Holy Cross on Sept. 6, there was something different about Saturday's 15-14 loss to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference foe Norfolk State. The Bears had entered the contest on a two-game winning streak, and the Spartans wallowed their way through an 0-4 start. But Morgan State (2-3 overall and 1-1 in the league) couldn't prevent Norfolk State from scoring a game-winning touchdown with 29 seconds left in regulation.

The Washington Nationals had taken the slow approach with Michael Morse's rehabilitation from a strained right lat muscle, and they felt optimistic the final step would come Monday night. Nine full innings in left field at Single-A Hagerstown would prepare Morse for his return Thursday in the home opener at Nationals Park. "He couldn't do that," manager Davey Johnson said. "That really distresses me. " Morse took himself out of his rehab appearance Monday night after seven innings.

Scouts from the Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles who attended Towson's Colonial Athletic Association opener with Maine Saturday night to gauge Ryan Delaire's talent were treated to a tantalizing display. The senior defensive end matched his season total of three sacks in the Tigers' 27-24 loss. He had sacks on back-to-back plays in the third quarter and lodged his final takedown later in the same period. After getting credited with 3½ tackles in the first half, Delaire posted his three sacks and another half tackle in the second half, which occurred after a halftime discussion with coach Rob Ambrose.

Dick Horne, now the sole proprietor of Baltimore's American Dime Museum, suffered a setback yesterday when he was outbid for the buildings that house the museum on Maryland Avenue. The winning bid for the block of three rowhouses near Lafayette Avenue - two of which are occupied by the museum - was $255,000 (plus a 10 percent auctioneer's fee). Horne, who opened the museum of oddities four years ago, said he was forced to pull out at $250,000. The winner, Javed Nasir, who described himself as an "investor," said he does not know what he will do with the buildings, or whether he would want the dime museum to continue there as a tenant.

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Orioles third baseman Manny Machado said he doesn't consider his recent setback “a big deal,” and still believes there may be time for him to be ready to play Opening Day -- which is now only two weeks away. Machado, who had been rehabbing from October knee surgery, hasn't run in six days because he is dealing with tightness caused by the breaking up of scar tissue in his left knee. “This was going to happen,” Machado said. “It happened now, and it just set me back a couple days.

It didn't take long for the Justin Duchscherer test drive to take a wrong turn. The Orioles right-hander, who is trying to come back from two years of physical and emotional turmoil, had to be shut down on Saturday because of hip soreness and likely will be scratched from his first exhibition start on Wednesday. This can't be considered a shocking development, considering Duchscherer's injury history and long-shot status in training camp, but it is a potentially significant reversal.

A loss tends to turn coaches into surgeons, dissecting what went wrong and trying to make repairs. Stevenson coach Paul Cantabene doesn't like losing, but he chose to look at the silver lining from Saturday's 13-9 loss to No. 3 Cortland. “We know we can make plays, and we know we can play with the best teams in the country,” he said Monday. “And we have to. No other team is playing three of the top five teams in the country in nine days [Cantabene was referring to a March 10 loss to then-No.

While this week's decision to abandon the proposed $95 million intermodal rail facility at the Mount Clare yard in Southwest Baltimore may be regarded as a big victory for neighbors in Morrell Park and elsewhere who strongly opposed it, the decision is a genuine setback for efforts to expand business at the Port of Baltimore. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in recent years to make the port more competitive and reduce shipping costs; the loss of the planned intermodal facility is likely to have the opposite effect.

TORONTO -- Before Wednesday's game, Orioles manager Buck Showalter raved about the reports from right-hander Dylan Bundy's start at High-A Frederick on Tuesday, when he threw 4 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing just five hits while striking out seven batters and issuing no walks. “It was his best outing,” Showalter said. “He felt great. He threw the ball well, no walks. It was the best outing he's had.” Tuesday's outing was Bundy's sixth with Frederick and his ninth minor league start since returning from last year's Tommy John elbow ligament reconstruction surgery.

The Ravens had been relatively fortunate on the injury front early in training camp, but their outlook - and their options at arguably their deepest position - were altered on one play Wednesday. During an 11-on-11 drill about an hour into practice, a seemingly routine running play left two rookie defensive linemen on the ground and needing help to get up. Second-round draft pick Timmy Jernigan ultimately walked gingerly toward the locker room with a trainer supporting his back.

Everyone who was hoping against hope that Matt Wieters could avoid Tommy John surgery was just whistling through the graveyard. Once it became known that his elbow soreness was persisting and he would see Dr. James Andrews for a second visit, it was pretty obvious that his season was over. It's a big setback for the Orioles, but they wouldn't have traded for Nick Hundley if they weren't pretty sure they were going to need a long-term solution when Wieters came up sore. If there is a surprise, it's the way Caleb Joseph has stepped up to provide a very solid defensive option for the club behind the plate.

McDaniel's 2014 season ended in shocking fashion when the team surrendered six unanswered goals in a 16-15 loss to Centennial Conference foe Gettysburg. More than a month after that April 26 setback, coach Matt Hatton said the outcome could serve as a positive for the Green Terror (6-9 overall and 3-5 in the league). “I'm not sure that wasn't a good thing for our guys as motivation in the long run,” he said. “Obviously for the short term, it was very painful. But everybody's excited.

It was one of those rare June days in Baltimore - warm and sunny, not yet hot and humid - so you could take a good, long walk through the city without shvitzing or getting terribly distressed. I mean, you could actually feel good about the place. There was a cooling breeze along North Charles, so nice you didn't even feel the after-burn from the buses and delivery trucks in the street. People were strolling, walking dogs, riding bikes, pushing skateboards or waiting for the Charm City Circulator to take them to the Inner Harbor.

LIMA, Peru -- Former President Alan Garcia won the presidential runoff election here yesterday against nationalist challenger and ex-Army officer Ollanta Humala. Garcia, 57, whose 1985-1990 presidential term left the country on the verge of economic and political collapse, had garnered 55.5 percent of the vote, compared to 44.5 percent for Humala, according to an official count of 77.3 percent of ballots. The lead was insurmountable, said the head of the electoral agency, Magdalena Chu. The margin could shrink, however, as Humala's support is strongest in rural areas where vote reporting is slower.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush marched into the conference room where Cabinet aides were promoting immigration reform last week and, with cameras rolling, pledged his administration would "get the job done." Days later, with Bush thousands of miles away for a summit of industrialized nations, the immigration legislation suffered an abrupt collapse, at least temporarily done in by frustrated Republican and Democratic lawmakers left out of closed-door negotiations, media critics and average citizens upset at the plan.

The launch of Baltimore's bike-sharing program will be delayed until next summer after the hardware and equipment vendor selected by the city filed for bankruptcy, officials said Wednesday. The city is expected to seek new vendors through a bid process as early as June, said Kathy Dominick, a spokeswoman for the Department of Transportation. The city is rewriting its request for proposal, or RFP. The city's program, to be called Charm City Bikeshare, was expected to open this spring with more than 250 bicycles available for short-term rentals at 25 stations.

Thirty years ago last month, the Baltimore Colts left town, and the loss of the beloved NFL franchise was a stunning blow not only to football fans but to the city's identify. Nine years later, Baltimore's image as a sports town suffered another big hit when, after getting passed over for an expansion franchise, then-NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue famously suggested a museum be purchased for the city instead. The beauty of that "Let them eat fossils and Pre-Columbian art" put-down was that it not only implied that an NFL team would never be coming to Baltimore but that the city had a cultural deficit, too. Whatever chip on the shoulder Baltimore had from the day of the Mayflower moving vans suddenly got a lot heavier.
