NEW YORK - With much of the Northeast immersed in the recovery from superstorm Sandy's devastating blow, the NFL and NBA plan to carry on with their schedules.

The New York City Marathon is still hoping that the course will be clear by Sunday and runners will be able to get to the starting line in Staten Island.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank on Tuesday said through his Twitter account the season-opening games Tuesday night in Miami, Los Angeles and Cleveland - the Wizards flew out of Washington Monday 7 a.m. - are set to tip off on time.

But five days before 50,000 runners take to the course that meanders through the streets of New York City's five boroughs, NYC Marathon organizers were still waiting to give an update on their race preparations.
