Haslem fires back at Pierce tweet

If you were wondering if Paul Pierce's now infamous tweet: 'It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis' had any effect on the Miami Heat, it did. Heat forward Udonis Haslem described Pierce as "studio gangster" after Miami's practice Friday. The Celtics beat the Heat 112-107 Thursday night, their second win over Miami in as many tries.

Taylor on D&H: Patience key with Steelers

Patriots running back Fred Taylor appeared on the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon as part of WEEI's Patriots Friday. Taylor has missed five games with turf toe, an injury he's learned to respect after previously not taking it seriously when he heard about it from other affected players.

 

"It's a frustrating injury," he said. "You re-aggravate it with each step. I always compare it to a sore thumb or a sprained thumb. Every time you take a step, it's brutal. For me, the one that I did on the left foot was actually a slightly torn tendon ligament, and the right foot was turf toe from after the first game of the season."

 

Taylor said an injured toe often leads to other injuries. "It's the center of your universe," he said. "Once that thing gets banged up or hurt, you start altering your walk, then you alter your run. Then you compensate, and then all of a sudden you have a tight calf...

Boychuk hopes to return by next weekend
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk, out since Oct. 23 with a fractured forearm, was one of only five Bruins to take the ice at Ristuccia Arena on Friday. He was joined by fellow rehabbing players Marco Sturm and Marc Savard, as well as goaltenders Tuukka Rask and Tim Thomas. It was the first time he has been able to shoot on goalies since the injury. 

 

The prognosis for Boychuk's return was four weeks, and he hopes to still be on track for a return by the latter part of this month.

 

"Maybe. Hopefully. I hope so," Boychuk said when asked if he was optimistic he could return by next weekend. "That will be four weeks I think, so hopefully I'll be good to go."

 

Boychuk admitted that it's a matter of "just seeing whenever the doctor says I'm going to be OK to practice [with the team]," and not trying to push it. He said he is still experiencing occasional pain,...

Pats practice: Page, Pryor only absentees

FOXBORO -- Safety Jarrad Page and defensive lineman Myron Pryor were the only players not present for the open portion of Patriots practice on Friday outside Gillette Stadium. 

 

Page has been nursing a calf injury since the Chargers game on Oct. 24 while Pryor is treating a back injury. Tom Brady was present and accounted for and was doing his standard work with back-up Brian Hoyer and practice squad QB Jonathan Crompton. 

 

The team practiced in sweats and shells on the grass fields outside Gillette Stadium in preparation for the grass surface they'll be playing on Sunday night at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

Belichick: Wait and see on Brady

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick played the wait-and-see game with Tom Brady when asked about the quarterback's status for this Sunday night's game in Pittsburgh. Brady missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury before returning to only limited participation on Thursday. 

 

"We'll do the same thing we always do," Belichick said. "We'll practice, go through the week, list his participation in practice based on what it is and list his status for the game just like we do with everybody else's, based on what we think it is after we get through the whole week, after we get through Friday practice. That's really it."

 

The Boston Globe reported Wednesday that a source indicated Brady was nursing a sprained foot but the injury wouldn't keep him from playing Sunday night. Belichick began the presser by joking about Brady's "throwing foot", a reference to Brady's right shoulder, which...
