The Miami Heat are waiting until tip-off to decide whether to play guard Dwyane Wade against the showdown against the Pacers tonight. Wade has missed six games this season in an effort to protect his knees, including Sunday's win over Detroit. OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) - The Baltimore Ravens have placed wide receiver Brandon Stokley on injured reserve, ending his season. Stokley sustained a concussion in Sunday's game against Minnesota, one of many he's suffered over his 15-year career. NEW YORK (AP) - Toronto captain Dion Phaneuf (fah-NOOF') has been suspended two games for his hit from behind on Boston's Kevan Miller Sunday. Miller left the game after being checked into the boards but did not appear to be seriously injured. No penalty was called on the play. OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A college basketball player who won $20,000 by hitting a half-court shot during an Oklahoma City Thunder game can keep the money for use as a scholarship. The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics made the ruling after initially indicating that if Cameron Rodriguez kept the money he would lose his amateur status at Southwestern College in Winfield, Kan. LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - IOC President Thomas Bach says Russia will set up public protest zones in Sochi during the Winter Olympics, a move unlikely to defuse criticism of the country's human rights record and a recent law banning gay "propaganda." Bach says Sochi organizers notified him today of the decision during their report to the International Olympic Committee executive board.
