Ainge: Rondo out 'couple of weeks'
By: DJ Bean

 Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on The Big Show, noting that the C's will be without point guard Rajon Rondo for some time after he sprained his ankle during Wednesday's victory over the Knicks. 

 

"Rajon, I think, will be out for a couple of weeks, anyway," Ainge said.

 

"I think that Rajon is young, and he heals fast and he loves to play, to his credit. I couldn't believe he was back on the court last night. He wasn't moving very well, even when he got back out on the court. You could tell he was still in a lot of pain, and certainly after the game it started puffing up. This morning there was a lot of swelling, and he definitely needs some time off."

 

The injury means more minutes for Nate Robinson, who is averaging 7.7 points and 2.3 assists per game. 

 

"Nate has been playing very well for us...

Reports: Red Sox to sign Bobby Jenks
By: DJ Bean

According to multiple reports, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with free agent right-handed relief pitcher Bobby Jenks. The 29-year-old was non-tendered by the White Sox following the season and became a free agent. ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting Jenks' deal with the Red Sox is for two years and $12 million and that it is pending a physical. Jon Heyman of SI.com was the first to report the agreement. 

 

A two-time All-Star closer, Jenks has had at least 40 saves twice in his six-year career. He had 27 last season for the White Sox, while striking out 61 batters in 52 2/3 innings. He posted a 4.44 earned run average and a  1.36 WHIP.

Rondo, Garnett among All-Star leaders

The first returns of 2011 NBA All-Star balloting were released Thursday. A pair of Celtics rank highly among vote-getters, as Rajon Rondo (497,141 votes) stands second among Eastern Conference guards and Kevin Garnett (456,111) is second among Eastern Conference forwards. If both hold their position in the voting, it would be the second All-Star appearance (and first start) for Rondo and Garnett's 14th selection.

 

Paul Pierce is fourth among Eastern Conference forwards (235,107 votes) and Ray Allen is fourth among Eastern Conference guards (235,977). Shaquille O'Neal is second among centers in balloting, but trails Dwight Howard (the overall leader in votes among all Eastern Conference players with 611,561) by over 300,000 votes. 

 

Kobe Bryant tops all NBA players with 722,682 votes. The All-Star Game will be played at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 20, 2011.
