REPLAY SET: The league said new players are eligible for Saturday's do-over between the Hawks and Heat. They will complete 51.9 seconds of a Dec. 19 OT game, the first replay since Spurs-Lakers in 1982. Atlanta's stat crew mistakenly ruled that Shaquille O'Neal, then with Miami, fouled out.

WNBA: The Seattle Storm signed former league MVP Sheryl Swoopes, 36, who has been with the Houston Comets during the franchise's 11-year history. She had back surgery in September.
