(Reuters) - Earl Lloyd, the first African-American to play in the National Basketball Association, died on Thursday at the age of 86, the league said on its website. The cause of death was not disclosed. Lloyd paved the way for black players when he made his NBA debut with the Washington Capitols in 1950. He missed the 1951-52 season due to military service but later won a championship with the Syracuse Nationals and also played for the Detroit Pistons before retiring in 1960. According to basketball-reference.com, Lloyd, a small forward, scored 4,682 points in 560 games. ...

Derrick Rose will have surgery on Friday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, the Chicago Bulls sayFormer NBA Most Valuable Player Derrick Rose will have surgery on Friday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, the Chicago Bulls said. Rose will undergo a meniscectomy, which is removal of part or all of the meniscus, and Bulls general manager Gar Forman will discuss the 26-year-old's prognosis after the procedure. If the tear is small, it's possible Rose could return within six weeks. It's the second straight season that Rose has needed surgery for a similar injury in the same knee.


Rory McIlroy plays his tee shot on the 14th hole during the first round of the Honda Classic on February 26, 2015 in Palm Beach GardensWorld number one Rory McIlroy battled to a three-over-par 73 at a windswept Honda Classic in his first US PGA Tour start of 2015. Given Thursday's daunting conditions, which saw only 19 players break par, the Northern Irishman wasn't too disappointed with an effort that left him eight shots off the pace set by Web.com Tour graduate Jim Herman.


By Simon Evans PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (Reuters) - Honda Classic first round leader Jim Herman's dream of making the PGA Tour looked to be fading when he was working as an assistant professional at the Trump National course in New Jersey. Trying and failing to qualify for the highly competitive U.S. circuit at the second stage of qualifying school in Tampa proved to be demoralizing for the Cincinnati-born Herman, who eventually threw in the towel. "You play the (third tier) Golden Bear tour, go to Q‑School, it was just the same cycle every year," Herman, 37, said after shooting a five-under-par 65 at PGA National on Thursday. I played in Tampa, seems like every year and driving back to East Coast with, 'What am I going to do now?' "I got in the golf business, started working at the PGA Village, got a phone call and started working up at Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey." It was there, in 2006, that the owner of the course, American celebrity entrepreneur Donald Trump, spurred Herman to try again at a professional career.

Courtroom sketch shows Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tsarnaev during the jury selection process in his trial at the federal courthouse in BostonLawyers for the accused Boston Marathon bomber filed on Thursday a last-gasp request to dismiss the charges against their client or delay the start of the trial next week, contending that court officials had violated their own rules during jury selection. Attorneys for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is accused of carrying out the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001, argued in a court filing that after randomly assigning numbers to the more than 1,350 people who reported for initial selection early last month, the court re-ordered the jurors based on arrival time. They also contend that people who live within the Boston city limits and those under 30 and over 70 were disproportionately under-represented. The final phase of jury selection is set to take place on Tuesday, when prosecutors and defense attorneys will whittle down the field of about 70 provisionally qualified jurors to 18 people, including 12 jurors and six alternates.

An aerial view shows the scene of a double-decker Metrolink train derailment in Oxnard, CaliforniaBy Dana Feldman VENTURA, Calif. (Reuters) - A driver who was taken into custody after his truck was hit by a Southern California commuter train in a fiery wreck that injured 50 people will not be criminally charged, at least for now, prosecutors said on Thursday. Jose Alejandro Sanchez-Ramirez, 54, was arrested on suspicion of hit-and-run after police said they found him walking and talking on a cell phone "in distress" more than a mile from the scene of Tuesday's destruction in Oxnard, California. Oxnard police have said Sanchez-Ramirez was taken into custody for leaving the scene of the crash and that they were investigating whether drugs and alcohol were a factor. "While charges will not be filed at this time, the arrest of Jose Alejandro Sanchez-Ramirez by the Oxnard Police Department was clearly appropriate and lawful," prosecutors said The crash in Oxnard flipped over three double-decker Metrolink rail cars, derailed two others and tore apart the Ford pickup that authorities said Sanchez-Ramirez had driven 80 feet (24 metres) onto the railroad tracks after making a wrong turn in the pre-dawn darkness.
