[MLS PREVIEW: Week 23] First-place Sporting Kansas City could be without Graham Zusi, who limped off in the first half of Wednesday's All-Star Game, when it hosts second-place New York Saturday with first place on the line in the Eastern Conference.

Zusi went off midway through the first half with what Coach Peter Vermes described as tightness. On Thursday, he described Zusi's status as "day-to-day."
