Donne back for at least some of the series to help count

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (12-6)OPEN CAMP: July 29, St. Saucony Shadow Original Grey . Joseph, MissouriLAST YEAR: Started 1-5 before winning 10 straight to reach playoffs, beating Houston for first postseason win since 1993 season. Made run without RB Jamaal Charles (right ACL) and with OLBs Justin Houston and Tamba Hali dealing with injuries late in year. Defense allowed just 17.9 points per game, third best in league, to help overcome offense that once again struggled to score points under coach Andy Reid.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: OT Mitch Schwartz, WRs Rod Streater and rookie Demarcus Robinson, LB Jonathan Massaquoi, DT Chris Jones, OL Parker Ehinger.IMPORTANT LOSSES: FS Husain Abdullah, SS Tyvon Branch, DT Mike DeVito, OG Jeff Allen, OT Donald Stephenson, QB Chase Daniel.CAMP NEEDS: Test recovery of Charles and Hali from knee surgery and progress of Houston after surgery to left ACL in February. Identify backup quarterback after Daniels departure from among Aaron Murray, Tyler Bray and Kevin Hogan. Decide how carries will be split with Charles returning to RB corps that includes Spencer Ware, Charcandrick West and Knile Davis.EXPECTATIONS: Chiefs believe Broncos are vulnerable in AFC West, but loss of Houston to knee injury for start of season hurts chances of division title. Second straight year of earning a wild card would be another sign that Reid and GM John Dorsey have Chiefs on track for sustained success.---AP NFL website: and Saucony Shadow 6000 Grey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Saucony Grid 9000 Keys Open Doors . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. The post-Olympics run to the WNBA playoffs was anything but kind to Los Angeles, but those struggles easily could be forgotten it the team achieves success in the postseason.The Sparks begin the playoffs Wednesday at the Walter Pyramid in Long Beach, Calif., with the opener a best-of-five semifinal series against the soaring Chicago Sky.The Sparks, the No. 2 overall seed in the postseason after a 26-8 regular season, went 5-5 after the league took a month-long break for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro but won their final two games.I think Coach (Brian Agler) understands we have to get better but also prepare our bodies physically, said Los Angeles forward Nneka Ogwumike, who on Tuesday was selected the WNBAs Most Valuable Player. Theres more focus on small things, and I wouldnt say that were going as hard as we were before.Ogwumike shot a WNBA-best 66.5 percent from the field this season, the second-highest mark of all time, and ranked third in the league in scoring (a career-high 19.7 points per game) and rebounding (9.1 boards per game, also a career high).She recorded the second-most double-doubles in the league (18) and set WNBA records for consecutive field goals made (23) and most field goals in a game without a miss (12, against the Dallas Wings on June 11).The Sparks won their first 11 games, the second-longest winning streak to open a season in WNBA history, and began 20-1 to equal the best-ever start.Los Angeles hasnt played a game since posting a regular-season-ending victory over the San Antonio Stars on Sept. 16. The Sparks received a double bye into the semifinals.Its real strangge, real strange, Agler said about the layoff in the playoffs. Saucony Shadow 5000 Black. But well be ready this time around. We have to be.Conversely, Chicago, by way of the No. 4 seed, had only a first-round bye, then beat the Atlanta Dream 108-98 in a single-game elimination playoff round on Sunday to reach the semifinals.The availability of Chicago forward Elena Delle Donne, who has been sidelined since Sept. 12 after undergoing thumb surgery, could be a huge factor in this series. The Sky hopes to have Delle Donne back for at least some of the series to help counter the Sparks dynamic frontcourt tandem of Ogwumike and former MVP Candace Parker.Chicago is 4-2 without Delle Donne, surprising many who thought the team would fade without its star in the lineup.Everybody has written us off, and I dont think anybody believed that we were going to be able win games without her except us, Sky point guard Courtney Vandersloot said after the win over Atlanta. The biggest factor is we believe that we can do it and we all know that we had to step up. We have enough on this team to get it done.The Sky went 7-3 over their final 10 regular-season games. Chicago led the league in scoring at 90.1 points per contest despite playing its final five games without Delle Donne.Chicago beat Atlanta in the second round of the playoffs thanks to a balanced attack in which seven players scored at least eight points.Los Angeles swept the three-game regular-season series with the Sky, winning twice in the Chicago.
