LIENZ, Austria -- Lindsey Vonns head coach says no date has been set for the injured skiers return to the World Cup, and that she might not compete at all before the Sochi Olympics in February. Vonn flew back to Vail, Colo., last week after hurting her surgically repaired right knee at a downhill race in France. "Her knee was swollen again after Val dIsere," U.S. womens head coach Alex Hoedlmoser told The Associated Press. "She is working with the guys from (her own team) Red Bull and the medical staff to get that under control." Hoedlmoser added that "there is no decision yet if, or where she is going to race ahead of the Olympics." Vonn needed surgery in February to reconstruct two knee ligaments after a crash in super-G at the world championships, and then partially re-tore one of them in November. Vonn returned to the World Cup in Lake Louise, Alberta, in the first week of December and finished 40th and 11th in two downhills before placing fifth in super-G the next day. After the next setback in Val dIsere, Vonn said she would compete in "one maybe two races before the Olympics." "Im going to play it safe and race minimal races, so I can get the confidence and the timing and the feeling of racing again," Vonn said last weekend. "Im really going to be safe and smart as I can." Vonn hopes to defend her Olympic downhill title on Feb. 12. The womens super-G in Sochi is three days later. "Lindsey prefers to work quietly on her comeback," Hoedlmoser said. "We are in contact regularly but I am too far away to judge the situation so I leave it to her and her team now." The next World Cup speed races are Jan. 9-12 in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee, where Vonn won a super-combined event in 2009. Hoedlmoser said he cant predict whether Vonn might start in the Austrian resort. "She has indicated she might consider racing Cortina (on Jan. 16-19) but its too early to say that shes going to," Hoedlmoser said. "Maybe she wont race at all if she feels she can do without another race in her preparation for Sochi. I think shes handling it well and shes determined to race in Sochi." According to American teammate Mikaela Shiffrin, Vonn has been "trying to stay quiet" since leaving the World Cup circuit last week. Shiffrin was convinced that Vonn was doing everything possible to make it to Sochi. "She is a tough girl, competing with a knee that just has a mind of its own right now," Shiffrin said. "I think theyll figure something out so she can be at her best." Shiffrin expected Vonn "to do a few races and to really save up so she can try to perform and represent the U.S. in the Olympics." "I think thats still her goal," Shiffrin said. "Theyve been working on helmet designs ... it looks like her helmets are sweet and I am sure shes fired up to still try to race the Olympics."

The Eagles have a 9-3 record with four games to go and the Sixers are off to a dreadful 0-16 start, the worst in team history. At least the Sixers have 66 games remaining on the schedule. Philadelphia has a very slim chance of tasting victory when the streaking San Antonio Spurs invade the Wells Fargo Center Monday night. The defending NBA champions, winners of seven straight, may rest some players because tonight is the second of a back-to-back after a win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. The Sixers will close out a four-game homestand and are 0-9 in front of a generally sparse local crowd. They dropped a 110-103 decision to the Dallas Mavericks Saturday and were led by K.J. McDaniels, who had 21 points and 13 rebounds. Michael Cartyer-Williams posted the third triple-double of his career with 18 points, a career-high 16 assists and 10 rebounds. Alexey Shved had 18 points in the loss. Philadelphia had 24 turnovers for 27 Dallas points, and has turned the ball over 44 times in the past two games. Weve just gotta keep our group together and move them along, Sixers coach Brett Brown said. Philadelphia is two losses away from tying the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets (0-18) for the worst start to an NBA season. Sixers guard and leading scorer Tony Wroten (17.9 ppg) did not play versus the Mavs because of a knee issue and is questionable Monday. Carter-Williams (ankle) and center Nerlens Noel (hip) are probable. The 76ers, who are scoring an NBA-low 90.8 points, will visit Minnnesota Wednesday and are scheduled to play four of the next five games on the road.dddddddddddd They are 0-7 away from home. San Antonio will try to extend its winning streak to eight games in south Philly and handed the Celtics a 111-89 defeat at TD Garden. Danny Green sank 4-of-9 3-pointers en route to 18 points, while Boris Diaw and Tim Duncan scored 15 and 14 points, respectively, for the Spurs, who shot 48.2 percent and scored 66 points in the second half to Bostons 40. Kawhi Leonard scored 12 points and Tony Parker added nine and nine assists. The Spurs play the right way all the time, said Boston coach Brad Stevens. They do it for 48 minutes. They do it for 82 games. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich returned to the bench from a two-game absence following a minor medical procedure. Assistant coach Ettore Messina took his place. The Spurs opened a four-game road trip Sunday and will also visit Brooklyn and Memphis. They are 6-3 outside the Alamo City and 10-1 in the last 11 overall. San Antonio is second in opponents scoring at 92.5 ppg and has held the opposition under 100 points in seven of the last nine contests. The Spurs are climbing up the Southwest ladder with a 12-4 record, while Memphis is an NBA- best 15-2 and Houston has a 13-4 mark. Philadelphia suffered a 100-75 loss in San Antonio on Nov. 17 and Matt Bonner led the hosts with 18 points. Carter-Williams scored 16 in that one for the 76ers, who are winless in the past seven matchups between the teams. The Spurs have won three in a row in the City of Brotherly Love. Brown, of course, was an assistant under Popovich for seven seasons. ' ' '
