Pedroia back, Middlebrooks sits vs. O's

Dustin Pedroia will play for the first time since he suffered the torn adductor muscle in his right thumb, returning to second base and his customary No. 2 spot in the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Orioles. The three-time All-Star's return is well-timed, as he is 4-for-7 with a double and two walks against Orioles starter Jason Hammel.

The Sox will feature Scott Podsenik batting leadoff and playing center field against the right-handed Hammel. Kevin Youkilis will bat fifth and play third, while Will Middlebrooks is out of the lineup.

Pierce: 'I don't think I'll need surgery'

MIAMI -- Paul Pierce has been dealing with an MCL sprain since the Atlanta series, but he doesn't think he'll need surgery after the season.

"It’s going to be what it is," Pierce said. "It’s not going to get any better until I’m completely done with the season. I have no complaints about. I’m at peace with it."

Pierce is shooting just 37 percent in the Eastern Conference finals, but he's still averaging almost 20 points a game and 4.5 rebounds. He had his strongest outing in Game 4 when he scored 23 points in 40 minutes before fouling out.

"I really don’t even think about it when I’m out there," Pierce said, "When you’re in a game unless you turn it a little bit you don’t really think about your injuries. You just go out and play. Whatever happens, happens."

Bosh remains a gametime decision

MIAMI -- Chris Bosh went through shootaround and the Heat say that he has been doing basketball work the last week, but they are still calling him a gametime decision for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals. The Celtics are preparing for Bosh and they have been throughout the series. His biggest impact would come on the offensive end where Kevin Garnett would have to guard him on the perimeter. 

"It makes it a longer roll," Doc Rivers said. "That’s the thing with Bosh. We’re still going to rotate, we’re still going to double in certain spots, but with Bosh on the floor instead of that roam coming from inside the paint, it may be coming 15 feet out in the lane and may be late at times. That’s why we have to shore up the pick and roll part of it."

Rivers has been able to use Garnett as a roamer in the paint and while they say Bosh's presence won't change their defense, his presence will be a...

Burke on D&C: Rondo comments 'shocking'

Appearing on the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning, ESPN basketball analyst Doris Burke addressed the controversy stemming from her halftime interview with Rajon Rondo in which the Celtics point guard said Heat players were "complaining and crying to referees in transition" during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday.

"To me, it was first of all, shocking that he would say that. It's the kind of response you rarely get," Burke said.

Following the game, Burke asked Rondo if he expected any reprecussions from what he said at halftime, to which he said he didn't take back what he said. But after that interview was over, cameras revealed Burke and Rondo talking to each other, a conversation that appeared to be a misunderstanding between the two. Burke revealed the conversation on the air and what she thought was going on.

"If you recall how I ended the interview, I said - and this really wasn't my...

Game 5 refs: McCutchen, Garretson, Stafford

MIAMI -- The NBA has announced the following crew will work Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Celtics and Heat: Monty McCutchen, Rom Garretson and Derrick Stafford. All three officials are crew chiefs normally during the regular season.

McCutchen's last Celtics assignment was Game 7 of the Philadelphia series. Garretson worked Game 6 of that series, while the C's haven't seen Stafford since Game 3 of the conference semifinals, a game they won on the road.
