Plenty to cover in the wide world of sports on this Wednesday night.

The PGA Tour's second major of the season begins in less than 24 hours. The Players Championship will be the first tournament for Tiger Woods since his fourth-place finish at the Masters. He will be dealing with a sprained left knee ligament and Achilles tendon.

Will he finally break his 18-month-long winless streak? Or will his funk continue? We'll go over his odds to win, and other players to watch for this weekend's event at TPC Sawgrass.

LeBron James and the Miami Heat are on the brink of eliminating the Boston Celtics and effectively ending their dynasty over the Eastern Conference. James is attempting to bury the demons of Boston that had plagued him throughout his career with the Cavs.

I'll provide you with live updates during the game and instant reaction as soon as we have a winner.

Don't forget about the No. 1 tennis player in the world: Rafael Nadal. Just days after losing the Madrid Masters final, he almost got upset in the second round today by Italian qualifier Paolo Lorenzi in Rome. I'll provide you with the details on what is going on with Nadal as the French Open looms.

All this and much more in Wednesday's late sports buzz.
