    Derrick Rose gets new deal from Bull

    Derrick Rose was going down the list, thanking just about everyone who helped him become one of the NBA's best players, when he looked to his right.

    Rose, the
    Chicago Bulls' superstar point guard and the league's reigning MVP, agreed Wednesday to a five-year contract extension. The contract is worth $94.8 million
    It's fair to say Rose made it long before this latest news conference. The extension is just another stop in a rapid and steady rise from a tough neighborhood on Chicago's South Side to a starring role with his hometown team after being taken with the No. 1 pick in the draft.
    He's gone from Rookie of the Year to All-Star to MVP in just three seasons, becoming the youngest player to win the award. That's why the extension was more a formality than a surprise.

    Kobe Bryant has torn wrist ligament

    Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has a torn wrist ligament and did not play in Wednesday night's preseason game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
    The Lakers have listed Bryant's status as day to day.

    "Just from what our trainer (Gary Vitti) tells us, I'm going to hold him out tonight," said coach Mike Brown after the team's shootaround.
    Bryant suffered the right wrist injury, his shooting hand, in the Lakers' 114-95 loss to the Clippers on Monday when he fell to the floor in the third quarter after having his shot attempt blocked by DeAndre Jordan.
    Bryant was examined by Dr. Steven Shin of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic and underwent an MRI exam on Wednesday. Results show that Bryant has a torn lunotriquetral ligament.

    Barry Bonds appeals conviction

    SAN FRANCISCO --

    Barry Bonds is officially appealing his felony obstruction conviction.

    His attorneys paid $455 and filed a one-sentence notice to the federal trial court late Wednesday, saying that Bonds was asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeal to toss out his conviction. The case will be randomly assigned to a three-judge panel later.
    Bonds was sentenced Friday to 30 days of house arrest, two-years of probation and a $4,000 fine. But U.S. District Judge Susan Illston delayed imposition until the appeal is resolved.
    Bonds appellate attorney Dennis Riordan estimated it could take as long as 18 months for a decision.

    Bonds was convicted of giving an evasive answer to a grand jury investigating a Northern California-based steroids distribution ring.

    Yanks, Red Sox hit with luxury taxes only




    The New York Yankees were hit with a $13.9 million luxury tax bill Thursday, their lowest since 2003.
    The fee, assessed by Major League Baseball under its labor contract, is down from $18 million last year and $25.7 million in 2009, when the Yankees won the World Series.

    Boston, which missed the playoffs for the second straight season, is the only other team that will have to pay a tax. The Red Sox received a bill for $3.4 million, up from last year's $1.5 million.
    Season-ending payroll information and the tax was sent to teams and obtained by The Associated Press.
    According to the collective bargaining agreement, checks to pay the tax must be sent to the commissioner's office by Jan. 31.
    New York has paid the tax in all nine years since it began, $206 million of the $227 million raised under the penalty for high payrolls. The only other teams to pay have been the Red Sox (a total of $18.8 million), Detroit ($1.3 million) and the Los Angeles Angels ($927,000).

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Chicago Bears tight end Kellen Davis (back) returned to practice Thursday along with defensive tackle Henry Melton (shin), but running back Marion Barber, linebacker Lance Briggs and receiver Devin Hester missed their second consecutive day of preparation for Sunday's matchup with the Green Bay Packers.
    We need to get Barber, Lance Briggs and Devin Hester back out there," Bears coach Lovie Smith said. "You know we're going to need every good player we have of course to beat a mighty team like the Packers. We need to get a win in the worst way."
