Doc: Bradley still doing 'nothing' in practice

WALTHAM -- As if to caution everyone expecting a quick and drastic turnaround based on the return of one player, Doc Rivers said Tuesday that Avery Bradley has still not been able to take part in signficant activity with the Celtics during their practices. Bradley has been seen before home games shooting around and working with conditioning coach Bryan Doo. He has even been listed officially active as NBA teams are required to have 12 active players on their rosters. 

But Rivers said nothing more should be read into that. The Celtics coach said Tuesday that Bradley - who was initially expected to return in January - is still some time away from returning to even full practice. 

"Nothing," Rivers said when asked if he's been able to participate. "Honestly, he's not been in anything. We are doing some things before shootarounds every once in a while where we just run our plays so he can have an idea. But if I've learned...

Sanderson: Bettman, Fehr 'don't understand'
By: DJ Bean

Former Bruins forward Derek Sanderson said on The Big Show Tuesday that he struggles to wrap his mind around the NHL's current labor negotiations, citing commissioner Gary Bettman's history with the NBA and NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr's history as head as the MLBPA. 

"You've got the No. 2 guy in basketball in Gary Bettman, and you've got Donald Fehr, all he's represented is baseball," Sanderson said. "So you've got a basketball guy and a baseball guy, who have never played hockey in their life, deciding hockey's future. What's wrong with that picture? They don't understand what they're doing."

Sanderson, who discussed his life experiences and his autobiography, "Crossing the Line," said that he fears that the season could be lost if the sides cannot the resolve the lockout by mid-December.

Source: Sox, Lester haven't talked extension

According to an industry source, the Red Sox have not had any discussions with left-hander Jon Lester about a potential extension. Lester is entering the last season of a five-year, $30 million deal he signed at the start of the 2009 season. He is slated to earn $11.675 million in 2013, with the Sox holding a $13 million option on his services in 2014.

Lester, who turns 29 in January, is coming off a 9-14 season in which he had a career-worst 4.82 ERA in 205 1/3 innings. Towards the end of the season, the left-hander (the Opening Day starter for the Sox in the last two seasons) told WEEI.com that, while he did not expect to discuss an extension with the team, he would be open to doing so.

"I still got really a year before we kind of have to figure things out as far as an option or anything like that. Like I said, it's probably not something high on their list right now," Lester said on the last day of the season. "I'm always open to...

Mashup: Jets no longer predicting playoffs

Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who three weeks ago was positive the Jets would rally and make the playoffs, was not as confident on Monday, as his team returned to practice following the 49-19 embarrassment vs. the Patriots on Thanksgiving night that dropped New York to 4-7.

"I don't even know what I believe right now, the way we've been playing," he said. "We've still got five games left. Anything can happen. My biggest focus right now is this one important game. I can't worry about the playoffs right now."

The Jets, who have not won consecutive games all season, begin their final stretch with a game against the Cardinals on Sunday as they look to win out.

"Heck, yeah, that's your goal," coach Rex Ryan said. "Absolutely, that's what you're trying to do. Our goal was to beat New England also, but that never worked out. That's why you play. You try and win every game that you're in. I'm saying...
