cond on a dunk. He played 11 minutes.

SIDELINED
Heat forward Dorell Wright will have debris removed from his surgically repaired left knee on Tuesday, which will further delay his comeback plans. The team said Monday night that Wright is not having anything repaired in the joint, but that team doctors believe ``loose bodies'' within the knee are disrupting his rehabilitation and recovery.

SEE YA
Eddie Jordan was fired as coach of the Washington Wizards on Monday after opening the season 1-10 without injured starters Gilbert Arenas and Brendan Haywood. The Wizards' record matches the worst start in franchise history. The only other time the team was 1-10 was in 1966, when it was called the Baltimore Bullets. Ed Tapscott, the Wizards' director of player development, took over for Jordan on an interim basis.

SHAKY START
Greg Oden, the first pick of the 2007 NBA draft, returned to the starting lineup for the first time this season since Portland's opening game. He was held to three points, six rebounds, and four turnovers in 19 ineffective minutes.

SPEAKING
``We needed a stop somewhere in that last span. We kept trading baskets and you can't win games trading baskets, especially when they hit the last one.''- Utah's Ronnie Price, who had 11 points and eight assists in the Jazz's 101-100 last-second loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday.
