The Celtics announced via Twitter that Marquis Daniels has been released from New England Baptist Hospital after suffering a bruised spinal cord during their game with the Magic Sunday. Daniels lay motionless on the floor for several hushed minutes before he was loaded on to a stretcher and taken to the hospital for tests and observation.
Team physician Dr. Brian McKeon said that Daniels had regained full function of his motor skills Sunday evening. The team expects him to be out at least a month, if not longer.

Boomer Esiason of CBS Sports made his final weekly appearance of the season on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to wrap up the Super Bowl.
Esiason said it would not be fair to pin the Steelers' loss on Ben Roethlisberger. "Ben had really one bad throw the entire game," Esiason said. "And I know after the game he did the whole thing, 'Woe is me. It's my fault. It's all on my shoulders. I let down the city of Pittsburgh.' You talk about overreaction — they actually scored more offensive points than the Green Bay Packers did."
Esiason said Rodgers deserves credit more than Roethlisberger deserves blame. "I don't think this game is really about Ben Roethlisberger's lack of ability to get his team in the end zone in the fourth quarter," Esiason said. "I just think it was a stunning performance by Aaron Rodgers, who, quite frankly, if his receivers hold on to the football,...
The game was a thriller, but behind the scenes there were some issues at Sunday's Super Bowl. The biggest blunder was the failure of workers to complete 1,250 temporary seats at Cowboys Stadium that had been sold for $800 apiece. The NFL re-seated most of the affected individuals (taking seats away from Cowboys staff and families), offered three times the price as a refund, and put the remaining people in standing room areas where they had to watch a video screen.
Meanwhile, Christina Aguilera messed up a line in the national anthem, Las Vegas sports were hammered by bettors, and one of the four men featured in a Visa credit card commercial for having attended every Super Bowl had his streak ended when he was hospitalized.
