WASHINGTON (AP)—President Barack Obama was back on the basketball court, though this time with two players less likely to throw an elbow his way—his daughters. The White House says that Malia and Sasha Obama joined their father Sunday morning for some hoop time at the gym inside the building that houses the Interior Department.

On Friday, Obama took an elbow to the mouth while playing a pickup basketball game with friends at Fort McNair. He received 12 stitches to close a cut to the left side of his lower lip.
