NBA PLAYOFFS-CAVALIERS/HAWKS

ATLANTA (AP) -- Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is sitting out Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Atlanta Hawks tonight after having his ailing left knee examined by Dr. James Andrews.

Irving has been dealing with tendinitis in his left knee, as well as a strained right foot from an opening-round sweep of the Boston Celtics.

Irving scored only 10 points and sitting out the final eight minutes of the Cavaliers' victory in Game 1. The Cavaliers list Irving as questionable for Game 3 in Cleveland on Sunday night.

Matthew Dellavedova started at point guard, with LeBron James expected to assume an expanded role handling the ball.

Meanwhile, Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll was a surprise starter after spraining his left knee in the series opener. Carroll participated in a shoot-around that was closed to media earlier Friday. He then took shots and drove to the basket on the team's practice court about an hour before the game.

An MRI showed no structural damage. Carroll was diagnosed with a sprain and bone bruise.

NFL-BRADY APPEAL

NEW YORK (AP) -- Several people with knowledge of the decision tell The Associated Press that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (guh-DEHL') will not withdraw from Tom Brady's appeal hearing.

The New England Patriots quarterback is fighting the four-game suspension he received for his alleged role in the use of deflated footballs in the AFC championship game. The union asked Goodell to remove himself from the case because it said he lacked impartiality and that Goodell would be called as a witness.

No date has been set for the appeal. The collective bargaining agreement calls for it to be heard within 10 days. However, both sides can agree on delaying a hearing, which would need to be held by Wednesday without any requested delays.

MLB-BREWERS

ATLANTA (AP) -- Major League Baseball says Milwaukee Brewers reliever Will Smith plans to appeal his eight-game suspension for having a foreign substance on his right arm during last night's game in Atlanta.

The lefty was ejected for having rosin and sunscreen on his right forearm in the seventh inning of a 10-1 loss to the Braves. He will be allowed to pitch until after his appeal is heard.

NFL-COWBOYS

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- The Dallas Cowboys and cornerback Orlando Scandrick have agreed to a one year contract extension worth $9.5 million, which pushes the total value of his deal to $20 million through 2019.

The 28-year-old Scandrick was Dallas' best cornerback last year but was set to make $1.5 million this season. Under the new deal he will get $4 million this year.

PGA-CROWNE PLAZA INVITATIONAL

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Kevin Na is the leader at the midway mark of the PGA's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Na began the round in a four-way tie for the lead following Thursday's 64 with a 4-under 66. He's two strokes ahead of Ian Poulter and three in front of Boo Weekley, each of whom owned a piece of the lead through 18 holes.

Jordan Spieth (speeth) also had a share of first before carding a 3-over 73 that puts him seven shots back.

COLLEGE ATHLETICS-NORTH CAROLINA

UNDATED (AP) -- North Carolina has received a notice of allegations from the NCAA connected to the school's academic fraud scandal. In a statement the school's Chancellor and athletic director said they are reviewing the "lengthy" notice and will release it publicly "as soon as possible" after redactions to comply with privacy laws.

The NCAA reopened a probe into academic misconduct last summer connected to the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies department. The focus was courses which were often treated as independent studies that required no class time and one or two research papers.

An eight-month investigation stated that an office administrator, not a faculty member, typically handed out assignments, and then high grades, after only a scan of the work.

The fraud case has led to several lawsuits from ex-UNC athletes against the school or NCAA, and the school also faces questions from its accreditation agency.

SCHUMACHER UPDATE

GLAND, Switzerland (AP) -- Michael Schumacher's manager says the seven-time Formula One champion is still improving, almost 17 months after suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident. Schumacher won a record seven Formula One titles and 91 races.

He was injured when skiing during a French Alps vacation.
