J. O'Neal out with flu for Celtics

The good news is that injured center Jermaine O'Neal probably would have been able to play against the 76ers Wednesday night after missing the last 18 games with a knee injury. The bad news is that he has the flu and won't be in the lineup. The Celtics hope to have O'Neal back for their Christmas Day game against the Magic.

 

"I think he’ll play next game, hopefully," coach Doc Rivers said. "[He's] just not feeling well. He was ready. I don’t know how much how he’ll play when he comes back." 

 

Originally slated to be the starting center, O'Neal has played just seven games this season for the Celtics and has been passed by Shaquille O'Neal in the lineup.

Brady wins Pro Bowl fan-balloting

FOXBORO -- He may not have been the choice of Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs but Tom Brady was a clear winner in the fan-balloting portion of the Pro Bowl vote released Wednesday by the NFL.

 

The Patriots quarterback - in the midst of a spectacular season - received 1,877,079 votes to lead all NFL All-Stars in fan balloting for the game to be held on Jan. 30, between the end of the conference championships and Super Bowl XLV on Feb. 7 in Arlington, TX. It's Brady's hope that he'll be unavailable to take part because of preparations for the Super Bowl. 

 

Fan voting ended on Monday, with Brady not only leading the AFC but the NFL among the top 10 Pro Bowl vote-getters.  Brady topped a list that included - in order - Michael Vick, Peyton Manning,...
