Hingis beats Groenefeld in Zurich Open

Knicks lose Jeffries with broken wrist

NEW YORK — Jared Jeffries, expected to be the Knicks’ starting small forward, could miss the beginning of the regular season because of a broken left wrist.

Jeffries was hurt Friday night against New Jersey in his Knicks debut and didn’t play Saturday night at Philadelphia. He had an MRI exam, which revealed a non-displaced fractured left wrist.

» Los Angeles Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic practiced Monday and pronounced his injured left foot ready to go as he tries to keep his spot in the rotation.

He is facing strong competition for the third-guard spot from rookie Jordan Farmar and Shammond Williams.

» The Miami Heat may be without backup center Michael Doleac for up to three weeks because of a strained right ankle.

Doleac’s availability for the Heat’s season-opener Oct. 31 against Chicago is unknown. He was injured Saturday night in Miami’s 91-81 exhibition loss to Atlanta. X-rays were negative, Doleac said.

» New Jersey Nets guard Eddie House had arthroscopic knee surgery Monday, and the team said there is no timetable for his return.

Doctors removed torn cartilage from his left knee at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
