Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Hawks' Carroll Hopes to Play vs. Cavs


 ATLANTA (AP) - DeMarre Carroll's agent says an MRI on Carroll's left knee showed no structural damage, and Carroll is hoping to play for the Hawks by Friday night's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals.
   Mark Bartelstein told The Associated Press on Thursday that Carroll has only a knee sprain and "maybe a little" bone bruise.
   Carroll celebrated the news on his Twitter feed.
   Bartelstein says Carroll will receive treatment for the soreness Thursday and Friday in hopes of playing against Cleveland in Game 2.
   Carroll's knee appeared to buckle as he was driving to the basket with about 5 minutes left in the 97-89 loss to the Cavaliers. Carroll couldn't put pressure on the leg as he was helped off the floor.
