ESPN apologizes for offensive headline • ESPN apologized for using a racial slur in a headline for a story on Jeremy Lin, the NBA's first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent who had sparked a seven-game winning streak for the Knicks.

ESPN ran the headline "Chink in the Armor" after Lin had nine turnovers in New York's loss to the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night on its mobile website. The headline could be seen on phones and tablet computers.

ESPN said in a statement it removed the headline 35 minutes after it was posted.

Lopez to play Sunday • New Jersey coach Avery Johnson said center Brook Lopez, the Nets' leading scorer last season, will start Sunday after missing the first 32 games with a broken right foot.

Rockets' Hill injures knee • Houston forward Jordan Hill, who is averaging 5 points and 4.9 rebounds a game, sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee in practice and is expected to miss at least two weeks, the team said.
