Wild Winger Justin Fontaine Out for Game 2 in Chicago

iStockPhoto/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Minnesota Wild winger Justin Fontaine will miss Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Chicago Blackhawks due to a lower-body injury.

Fontaine, who scored the game winning goal in the team's Game 6 series-clinching win over the St. Louis Blues Sunday, suffered the injury in the team's Game 1 loss to the Blackhawks.

"It's one of these things that could be day-to-day or it might be a week. I'm not sure," Wild head coach Mike Yeo said.

Yeo says that either Erik Haula, Sean Bergenheim, Jordan Schroeder, or Ryan Carter can fill in for Fontaine.

The 27-year-old Fontaine played in 71 games during the regular season, scoring nine goals while dishing out 22 assists.

Game 2 between the Wild and Blackhawks is Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET in Chicago.

Tiger Woods Will Miss U.S. Open

Stuart Franklin/Getty Images(DUBLIN, Ohio) -- Tiger Woods announced on his website Wednesday that he will miss the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 because he is still recovering from back surgery.

"Unfortunately, I won't be there because I am not physically able to play competitive golf," Woods said. "I'd like to convey my regrets to the USGA leadership, the volunteers and the fans that I won't be at Pinehurst. The U.S. Open is very important to me, and I know it's going to be a great week. Despite missing the first two majors, and several other important tournaments, I remain very optimistic about this year and my future."

Woods has been sidelined since playing in the WGC- Cadillac Championship in early March. The 14-time major title winner had surgery on March 31 for a pinched nerve in his back.

This will be the sixth major championship Tiger has missed because of injuries.

Willie Cauley-Stein Officially Ruled Out of Title Game

Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- Kentucky center Willie Cauley-Stein, who has been dealing with an ankle injury, was officially ruled out of Monday's national championship game against Connecticut.

The 7-foot, 244 pound sophomore injured his right ankle versus Kansas State, in Kentucky's first game of the tournament. Cauley-Stein continued to play on the ankle during Kentucky's third round victory over Wichita State but had to leave the team's Sweet 16 win over Louisville when he aggravated the injury.

Despite not being able to play, Cauley-Stein still feels he has a role with his team.

"That's the only thing I can really do is encourage the team to stay positive," Cauley-Stein said. "Even though I can't play, you know, I still serve a purpose of uplifting people and staying in people's ear and cheering and stuff like that."

Cauley-Stein averaged 6.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.9 blocks and 1.2 steals per game this season.

Indians' Closer Chris Perez Out 4-6 Weeks

Hannah Foslien/Getty Images(GOODYEAR, AZ) -- Cleveland Indians' All-Star closer Chris Perez will miss 4 to 6 weeks thanks to a strained left oblique. Perez was about 30 pitches into his first mound session of the year when he thought he felt a cramp.

Still, Perez hopes to return for opening day.

"Opening Day is not out of the question for me," Perez said. "Four to six weeks is on the long side of when I want to be back out there. Obviously, I have to listen to my body. Now, it's just go out and bang out my rehab."

Perez converted 36 of his 40 save opportunities for the Indians last season.
