Brock Lesnar is facing some very serious choices if he wants to get his life back in order—much less his career.

It was announced late Thursday afternoon that his case of diverticulitis, the disease which kept him out of action for a year, has flared up again.

Lesnar insists that this will not be the end of his UFC career, but admits that things don't look promising at present. He hasn't yet decided on having surgery, but if he does, he'll be out of action for a minimum of 12 months.

Speaking of injuries, if much less significant, Tiger Woods had to pull out of the Players Championship after nine holes yesterday, due to the stress fracture in his knee. Some people are criticizing Woods for "quitting," but that's really not fair.

This puts a damper on any hopes that Woods had of winning a major this year, because he won't be able to practice his swing or really do anything golf-related until the injury heals itself.

LeBron James is still riding high after Miami's emotional win over the Boston Celtics. What's more, James and co. now know who their opponents are, in the game to earn the right to compete for an NBA championship.

That is, the Chicago Bulls.

The Bulls swept the season series against the Heat, but James appears to be on a mission at the moment, and no one can stop him.

We will have the latest news, notes and information from the wide world of sports on this very scary Friday the 13th.
