GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Starter Mat Latos had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee on Friday, giving the Cincinnati Reds a concern as they opened spring training. Latos suffered the injury a few days earlier while throwing in Arizona. Hell have to stop throwing for about 10 days to let the knee heal. General manager Walt Jocketty said Latos could be ready for the start of the season. "It was a very quick repair," Jocketty said. "Very minor surgery." The Reds have suffered injuries to their bullpen during spring training each of the past two years. This time the rotation was thrown into flux from the start of camp. Latos went 14-7 last season with a 3.16 ERA in 32 starts. He had surgery to remove bone chips from his pitching elbow at the end of the season and had recovered well from that operation. Latos felt something in the knee on one of his throws earlier in the week. An MRI found the tear, and he had surgery on Friday morning as the rest of the pitchers and catchers were having their physicals. "Is it unfortunate? Yeah," Jocketty said. "But its not something were overly concerned about." Pitchers Carlos Contreras, Daniel Corcino and infielder Neftali Soto didnt make it to Goodyear for the first workout because their flights were cancelled due to the bad weather on the East Coast.

With the FIBA World Cup approaching this weekend, Davis said playing for his country does more than make him a better player. Its also a way to spend his off-season doing what he loves while showing his appreciation for others whove made greater sacrifices, and taken far greater risks, in the name of patriotism. "I love playing for USA basketball. Some guys look at it as they dont get paid, so you dont have to play or whatever," Davis said on a conference call with reporters on Thursday. "I love playing the game of basketball and any time I get a chance to represent my country, especially for all the servicemen and women who do so much for us, I think its a great opportunity to show your appreciation. "So I love doing things like this and I look forward to future years playing for USA Basketball." His focus, however, is the much more immediate future. Namely, Saturday, when Team USA opens group play against Finland in Bilbao, Spain. The risks of playing in events like the FIBA World Cup became magnified earlier this month when Indiana Pacers star Paul George broke his right leg in a stomach-turning collision under the basket. Davis said he, like many on the court and around the world, were shaken by Georges injury, which he called gruesome. But the 21-year-old Davis said he and fellow US teammates are now committeed "to keep moving forward and try to win this (championship) for him.dddddddddddd." Certainly, the last person who was going to dissuade Davis from playing was his Pelicans coach, Monty Williams, who is an assistant with the US Team under head coach Mike Krzyzewski. Williams believes the environment created by USA basketball has only accelerated Davis growth. "Hes understanding that he is a lead dog among a number of alpha dogs," Williams said of his 21-year-old power forward. "Mentally I think hes taken that up a few notches and I think Coach K has been a big part of that, pushing him to be a leader, pushing him to be the guy on the team. "When you think about the names on this team and you look at the impact on the game that he has, you seldom say theres a better player on the floor than Anthony, so thats got to help him from a confidence standpoint," Williams added. Indeed, Davis has been Team USAs leading scorer during its four World Cup tuneup games against Brazil, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Slovenia. He has averaged 13.8 points to go with 13.5 rebounds and 3.8 blocks per game. Davis, 6-foot-10, 237 pounds, said his role as a leader on the floor and in the locker room "definitely got bigger" after George was injured and other prominent players decided against playing. And its a role hes embraced. "Getting an opportunity to be one of main guys on team means a lot," Davis said.
