OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Golden State's Klay Thompson has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not be allowed to practice until he is symptom free. Thompson was kneed in the head during the Warriors' Western Conference clinching win over Houston Wednesday night.

Thompson will be evaluated and will not be allowed back on the court until he clears the NBA concussion protocol guidelines. The Warriors open play in the NBA Finals next Thursday at home against Cleveland.


ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Skiles is the new coach of the Orlando Magic. He replaced Jacque Vaughn who was fired in February.

The 51-year-old Skiles has spent 13 seasons as an NBA head coach at Phoenix, Chicago and Milwaukee. He has a combined 443-433 record.

Skiles was a member of the Magic's inaugural team in 1989-90 and played point guard for a total of five seasons in Orlando as part of his 10-year playing career.

Interim coach James Borrego took over the Magic after Vaughn's dismissal and went 10-20.


HOUSTON (AP) -- Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard has been suspended without pay for one game after getting his fourth flagrant foul point in the postseason. The foul in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals was ruled a common foul during the game, but was upgraded to a flagrant foul 1 after a review by the league office.

Howard will serve his suspension in the first game next season that he is physically able to play.


NEW YORK (AP) -- A spot in the Stanley Cup finals is on the line in a one-game showdown between the Lightning and Rangers in New York tonight.

The Rangers earned the home ice edge with the best record in the NHL during the regular season, but it hasn't been an advantage in the series so far. Tampa Bay has won two of the three games there, including a shutout in Game 5. Lightning goalie Ben Bishop has only given up four goals in the three games in New York.

But the Rangers have Henrik Lundqvist in the nets and the veteran goaltender has been money in Game 7s. He's won his last six with a 0.81 goals against average. The six straight Game 7 wins is an NHL record.


CINCINNATI (AP) -- Washington's Jayson Werth is out indefinitely after another test found that he broke his left wrist two weeks ago. The outfielder was hit on the left wrist by a pitch on May 16 and has been unable to swing a bat. A CT scan on Thursday revealed two small fractures.

Manager Matt Williams says there's no timetable for his return.

Werth is batting .208 with two homers and 12 RBIs.


ZURICH (AP) -- Sepp Blatter has been re-elected as president of FIFA (FEE'-fuh) for a fifth term. The 79-year-old earned another four-year term when Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan conceded defeat after losing 133-73 in the first round.

Blatter's re-election comes just two days after arrests and indictments of soccer officials in Switzerland and the U.S. on bribery, racketeering, money-laundering and other charges.


PARIS (AP) -- Second-seed Roger Federer has rolled into the fourth round of the French Open with a straight sets win on Day 6. The winner of 17 Grand Slam titles took just 1 hour, 29 minutes to advance. He's trying to add a second French Open title to his collection to go with his win in 2009.

Fourth-seed Tomas Berdych and eighth-seed Stan Wawrinka (vah-VRINK'-ah) also advanced.

Defending champ Maria Sharapova (shah-rah-POH'-vah) led the women's advance into the fourth round with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Samantha Stosur.


DOVER, Del. (AP) -- Denny Hamlin has won the pole for Sunday's running of the Sprint Cup race at Dover. It's his first pole of the season. Martin Truex, Jr. also earned a spot on the front row. Kyle Larson, Matt Kenseth and Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano round out the top five.


IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Jon Curran birdied five of the final nine holes on the way to a 6-under 63 and the clubhouse lead late in the second round of the Byron Nelson Classic.

Curran's 9-under total is one shot better than Cameron Percy who posted a 64.

Masters champ Jordan Spieth (SPEETH) shot a 64 and is three back.

Second-round play got a late start today because of heavy rain last night. Nearly five inches of rain fell on the already rain-soaked course in Irving, Texas.
