    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica -- Goalkeeper Keylor Navas and forwards Bryan Ruiz, Joel Campbell and Alvaro Saborio head the list of players named Monday to Costa Ricas preliminary 30-man squad for next months World Cup in Brazil. Lorenzen Wright Grizzlies Jersey . Coach Jorge Luis Pinto resisted naming any major surprises in the lineup and is using the same core of players who helped Costa Rica to qualify as the top team from the CONCACAF region. Pinto said he was happy to stick with his proven players and valued continuity in the team. "If we have to make changes, we will when the time comes," Pinto said. He said he will name his final 23-man squad on May 31, before the team travels to the United States for friendlies against Japan and Ireland. Pinto also confirmed that defender Bryan Oviedo of Everton will miss the cup with a broken left leg. Oviedo was injured in January and was not able to recover sufficiently to make the team. Costa Rica will be a heavy underdog to advance from a group containing England, Italy and Uruguay. The Central Americans will be appearing in their fourth World Cup, but merely picking up a point or two will be difficult against three teams near the top of the FIFA rankings with seven World Cup titles between them. Knocking one of the European giants out of the World Cup and matching its achievement of reaching the round of 16, which happened in 1990, would be a major accomplishment. ------ Squad: Goalkeepers: Keylor Navas (Levante), Patrick Pemberton (Alajuelense) Daniel Cambronero (Herediano), Esteban Alvarado (AZ Alkmaar). Defenders: Johnny Acosta (Alajuelense), Giancarlo Gonzalez (Columbus Crew), Michael Umana (Saprissa), Oscar Duarte (Bruges), Waylon Francis (Columbus Crew), Heiner Mora (Saprissa), Junior Diaz (Mainz 05), Christian Gamboa (Rosenborg), Roy Miller (Red Bulls), Kendall Waston (Saprissa). Midfielders: Celso Borges (AIK), Christian Bolanos (Copenhagen), Esteban Granados (Herediano), Michael Barrantes (AAlesund), Yeltsin Tejeda (Saprissa), Diego Calvo (Valerenga), Jose Miguel Cubero (Herediano) Carlos Hernandez (Wellington Phoenix), Ariel Rodriguez (Alajuelense), Hansell Arauz (Saprissa). Forwards: Alvaro Saborio (Real Salt Lake), Bryan Ruiz (PSV Eindhoven), Joel Campbell (Olympiacos), Randall Brenes (Cartagines), Marco Urena (FC Kuban Krasnodar), Jairo Arrieta (Columbus Crew).

Bryant Reeves Jersey .com) - Hassan Whiteside scored 20 points with nine rebounds in the Miami Heats 83-75 win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday.Scott Cullen has a half dozen players to consider for your fantasy hoops roster: Draymond Green, F, Golden State – With David Lee sidelined, and hes expected to be out for at least a couple weeks, there is more room for Green in the Warriors’ frontcourt and he’s taking advantage, averaging 12.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.8 threes per game. If his shooting improvement is remotely legitimate, then Green can be valuable as a multi-category threat. Courtney Lee, SG, Memphis – He missed a couple games with a concussion, but the 29-year-old shooting guard has played big minutes (36+ minutes in two of the three games that he’s played) and can shoot threes. Lee doesn’t offer much more, maybe a steal per game, but nothing wrong with a three-point threat getting starter’s minutes. Ed Davis, PF, L.A. Lakers – Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer are the starters in the Lakers’ frontcourt, but with rookie Julius Randle suffering a broken leg on opening night, Davis lost some competition for playing time. He doesn’t shoot a lot, but he’s efficient (66.7% from the field) and ggetting 10. Shareef Abdur-Rahim Grizzlies Jersey. .4 points, 7.2 rebunds, 1.4 blocks and 1.2 steals per game is not bad at all. Donald Sloan, PG, Indiana – It’s quite something to see who is contributing for the depleted Pacers and journeyman Sloan is second on the team in scoring, with 15.6 points per game, but he’s also good for 5.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game. At least while George Hill remains out of the lineup, Sloan ought to provide solid point guard production. Garrett Temple, SG, Washington – While Bradley Beal is out, Temple is the starter alongside John Wall in the Wizards’ backcourt. He’s mostly been a spare part in his NBA career, and averaged 1.8 points per game in 75 games last season, but he’s making the most of his run now, with 13.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 2.8 threes per game. Mirza Teletovic, PF, Brooklyn – The third-year forward has steadily increased his role and while he’s an okay rebounder (5.5 per game), he’s really a sharpshooter, hitting 2.8 threes per game on 45.8% from beyond the arc.
