WPEC-TV CBS12 News :: Sports - Dolphins Knowshon Moreno working his way back to full strength

Dolphins Knowshon Moreno working his way back to full strength

By John Evenson

Dolphins free agent signing Knowshon Moreno is finally back taking part in full contact football this week at practice, the Dolphins hoping he can improve their 26th ranked running game from last season. One thing he's already done is improve fellow running back Lamar Miller's performances.

Miller has outperformed Moreno in most of the offseason workouts so far, looking much more motivated than he did last season. Of course, part of Moreno's slow start was because of his nagging knee injury and the fact he came into camp a little heavy, but with knee surgery now behind him, he's ready to be the Knowshon Moreno Dolphins fans were hoping he's be.

CHICAGO (AP) -- Guard Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls has undergone knee surgery and is expected back in four to six weeks. General manager Gar Forman described the procedure as minor and said that Rose is able to bear weight on his legs.

Rose played in only 10 games last season before having surgery for a similar injury in November 2013, cutting short his long-awaited comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.


UNDATED (AP) -- Fresh off a big 11-point win over Golden State last night the Cleveland Cavaliers take the show to Indianapolis this evening. The Cavs may have to face the Pacers without All-Star Kyrie (KY'-ree) Irving, who is listed as doubtful after injuring a shoulder in last night's game. He was left behind in Cleveland for an MRI.

The victory over the league-leading Warriors was Cleveland's 18th out of its last 20 games and moved the Cavs past Chicago into first place in the Central Division with a record of 37-22. Chicago is home to Minnesota tonight.

The Warriors, who beat the Cavs last month in Oakland when LeBron James wasn't able to play because of an injury, remain the top team in the NBA with wins in 44 of their 55 games. They continue their road trip with a game against the Raptors this evening.

In a good matchup tonight, Portland, the leading team in the Northwest Division, is hosting second-place Oklahoma City. The Thunder, who got off to a slow start to the season because of injuries, have won eight of their last 10 games to move within six games of the Blazers. If the playoffs were to start today the Thunder would be the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

Tonight's remaining games feature the Wizards in Philadelphia to face the 76ers, the Hawks home to the Magic, New York and its eight-game losing streak in Detroit for a game with the Pistons, Boston home to the Bobcats, Miami at New Orleans, Brooklyn at Houston, the Grizzlies home to the Clippers, Denver entertaining Utah, the league-champion Spurs at Sacramento and Milwaukee in L.A. to play the Lakers.


UNDATED (AP) -- Earl Lloyd, the first black player in NBA history, died Thursday at the age of 86. Lloyd made his NBA debut in 1950 for the old Washington Capitals. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement the league "will strive to always honor his memory."

Lloyd helped the Syracuse Nationals win the 1955 NBA title, joining teammate Jim Tucker as the first black players to play on a championship team. Lloyd was a 6-foot-5 forward who averaged 8.4 points and 6.4 rebounds in 560 regular-season games in nine seasons with Washington, Syracuse and Detroit. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2003 as a contributor.


MIAMI (AP) -- Receiver Brian Hartline has been released by the Miami Dolphins after an off season. He was due to make $5.9 million in 2015, the third year of a $30.8 million, five-year deal he signed in 2013.

He started every game last season but had only 39 catches for 474 yards and two scores. He has spent his entire six-year career with Miami and was a 1,000-yard receiver in 2012 and 2013.


LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract extension through 2015 with tight end Zach Miller. He spent last season on injured reserve with a foot injury after signing with the Bears. Miller played in 33 games with Jacksonville from 2009-11, catching 45 passes for 470 yards and four touchdowns.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) --The Philadelphia Eagles have released offensive lineman Todd Herremans. The 32-year-old started 132 games while playing his first 10 seasons in Philadelphia. The move saves the Eagles $2.8 million under the 2015 salary cap.


JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Adam Wainwright, the ace of the St. Louis Cardinals staff, won't pitch in exhibition games until mid-March because of his abdominal strain, a delay that could prevent him from starting the major league season opener against the Cubs on April 5. Wainwright was hurt Monday while putting a 45-pound weight back on a rack. He returned to St. Louis for an examination which detected the strain.

Wainwright will avoid running and weightlifting for at least the next couple of days, but can resume throwing because his delivery and follow through don't cause any discomfort.


UNDATED (AP) -- Two teams vying for the second playoff berth in the NHL's Eastern Conference are on the ice together tonight as New Jersey entertains Boston. The Bruins start the day in the final playoff berth in the East, eight points in front of the Devils. New Jersey made some news last night when the Devils traded Jaromir Jagr (YAH'-oh-meer YAH'-gur) to the Panthers.

The Capitals, who have won eight of their last 12 games, have dropped back-to-back games to two of their closest rivals, the Penguins and Flyers. Tonight the Caps are at Carolina, which has gone 12-7-3 since Jan. 1.

The remaining four games tonight feature the Flames in New York to face the Islanders, the Lightning home to Chicago, Colorado at Dallas and the Kings in Anaheim to face the Ducks, who top the Pacific Division, 13 points in front of the defending champion Kings.


UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) -- Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano (jee-ohr-DAN'-oh) has been sidelined indefinitely with an undisclosed upper-body injury. The NHL's top-scoring defenseman left Wednesday night's 3-1 win over the New Jersey Devils in the third period after he was hauled down by Devils forward Steve Bernier (burn-YAY'). Giordano has 11 goals and 37 assists in 61 games.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Logan Couture (kuh-CHUR') of the San Jose Sharks has been fined $5,000 by the NHL for tripping Detroit Red Wings defenseman Brendan Smith. Couture came from behind and used his skate to knock Smith to the ice in the third period of Detroit's 3-2 victory on Thursday night. He was called for tripping on the play, while Smith was assessed a hooking penalty.

The fine is the maximum allowed under the league's collective bargaining agreement with the NHL Players' Association.


PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) -- Patrick Reed has the early second round clubhouse lead at the PGA's Honda Classic in Florida. He shot a second round 3-under-67 to go with his opening round 67 to stand 6-under for the tournament. First round leader Jim Herman, who shot a 65 on Thursday, has not yet teed off.

The start of play was delayed by roughly four hours because of bad weather.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy is in jeopardy of not making the cut at 6-over after 17 holes of the second round.


CHONBURI, Thailand (AP) -- Stacy Lewis shot an unblemished round of 8-under-par 64 for a three-shot advantage over Amy Yang after the second round of the LPGA Thailand event. Lewis, the third-ranked player in the world, enjoyed four straight birdies from holes four through seven plus four more on the back nine to stand 14-under after 36 holes. She also led at Siam Country Club at the halfway stage in 2013, and finished third.

Former world No. 1 and two-time champion Yani Tseng of Taiwan, who was tied for first after the opening round with Lewis and fellow American Brittany Lang, carded 72 to drop to 6 under, while Lang shot a 73 to be at 5 under.
