Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is feeling better and on track to return for the NBA Finals next week after taking a knee to his head from Trevor Ariza that caused ''concussion-like symptoms.'' That's according to Thompson's father, former NBA player Mychal Thompson. Mychal Thompson said his son vomited a couple of times and he had to drive him home after the Warriors eliminated the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Wednesday night. Asked to describe the difference in his son's status a day later, Mychal Thompson said ''Antarctica to the jungles of Brazil.'' He said his son should be cleared to play at some point before Game 1 against Cleveland next Thursday night.

The Baltimore Orioles had just earned a split of their doubleheader with the Chicago White Sox, and manager Buck Showalter didn't seem the least bit excited. The Orioles rebounded to scratch out a 6-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Thursday after a 3-2 loss in the opener of a doubleheader caused by rioting in Baltimore last month. ''In the big leagues, you can win, split, whatever and the ramifications last for a long, long time,'' Showalter said.

The Minnesota Vikings will open their optional team practices this week without Peterson. The star running back has told coach Mike Zimmer that he will not attend the three days of team work that begin Tuesday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday, May 24, 2015.

Adrian Peterson took to Twitter on Thursday to express his frustration over criticism he is receiving while staying away from the voluntary portion of Minnesota Vikings' offseason. The former NFL MVP has come under scrutiny from fans after saying he wanted a long-term commitment from the team despite the fact that he missed most of last season while addressing child abuse charges. It was initially believed that Peterson was still upset with the Vikings for a perceived lack of support while he went through his legal problems last year that culminated in pleading guilty to a misdemeanor for striking his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch.

The circumstances have changed for Dan Bylsma in taking over as coach of the young and rebuilding Buffalo Sabres. The expectations have not for someone previously accustomed to coaching the Sidney Crosby-led Pittsburgh Penguins. Bylsma's first objective is developing a winning attitude in Buffalo, on a team that has finished last in the standings in each of the past two seasons.

For the first time, the relationship between Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat seems murky at best. Contract talks between Wade and the Heat are at ''an impasse'' and the three-time NBA champion is preparing himself for possibly leaving the team this summer, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press on Thursday. Wade has said many times, including in an end-of-season interview with AP, that he wants to remain with the Heat for the remainder of his career.

In five seasons under Tom Thibodeau, the Chicago Bulls soared to heights they had not reached since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen were collecting championships. The Bulls fired Thibodeau on Thursday, parting ways with the strong-willed coach who took the team to the playoffs in each of his five seasons only to have his success overshadowed by his strained relationship with the front office.

The Denver Broncos are searching for someone to watch Peyton Manning's back after left tackle Ryan Clady tore his left ACL and will likely be out for the season. The requirements are simple: Don't let anyone hit the five-time NFL MVP - something Clady was deftly able to do. Clady hurt his knee during a voluntary practice Wednesday, an injury that no one thought was really all that serious.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly says LeSean McCoy was wrong to suggest he favors white players over black players, adding he never considers race when building his roster. ''We put a lot of time in looking at the characters and factors that go into selection and retention of players, and color's never been one of them.'' Kelly traded McCoy to the Buffalo Bills in March for linebacker Kiko Alonso. The two-time All-Pro and leading rusher in franchise history then questioned Kelly's motives in an interview with ESPN The Magazine this month.

As defiant as ever, Sepp Blatter resisted calls to resign as FIFA president Thursday and deflected blame for the massive bribery and corruption scandal engulfing soccer's world governing body. ''We, or I, cannot monitor everyone all of the time,'' Blatter said in his first public remarks on the crisis that has further tainted his leadership on the eve of his bid for a fifth term as president. The 79-year-old Blatter insisted he could restore trust in world soccer after a pair of corruption investigations brought ''shame and humiliation'' on his organization and the world's most popular sport.
