Holmes, Woody, Smith don't practice for Jets

According to reports from Jets practice, three key New York players -- wide receiver Santonio Holmes (quadriceps), offensive lineman Damien Woody (knee) and kick returner Brad Smith (groin) -- were held out of practice on Tuesday. However, Holmes hasn't missed any time, and Jets coach Rex Ryan told reporters on Monday that he expects both Smith and Woody to play.

Doc: 'No discussion' about signing Sheed

According to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com (via twitter), coach Doc Rivers said "there has been no discussion" by the Celtics about bringing back forward Rasheed Wallace.

 

Wallace spent the 2009-10 season with the Celtics, averaging 9.0 points and 4.1 rebounds a night during the regular season. He retired after his team's seven-game loss to the Lakers in the NBA Finals.

 

Wallace has reportedly said that he would look to come out of retirement to rejoin the Celtics this year. But Celtics GM Danny Ainge said recently on The Big Show that it would be difficult to imagine adding Wallace to the roster.

 

"I’m not sure there’s room for Rasheed unless we just have a whole...

Doc on KG: 'I doubt he plays' Wednesday

WALTHAM -- Celtics forward Kevin Garnett did not take part in his team's practice on Tuesday, and it is unlikely that he will play on Wednesday when the Celtics are scheduled to host Sacramento.

 

"I doubt he plays. There's a chance but I doubt it," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers, who called Garnett day-to-day.

 

Garnett has been out since suffering a left calf strain against the Pistons on Dec. 29. Including that contest, the Celtics are 4-4 without Garnett, and his absence was felt acutely by teammates during their 108-102 loss to the Rockets on Monday.

 

In 30 games this year, Garnett is averaging 15.0 points and 9.5 boards a game while shooting a career-best 53.9 percent from the floor.

Nate Robinson won't defend dunk title

Celtics guard and reigning NBA Slam Dunk Contest title-holder Nate Robinson told the Boston Globe that he would not be defending his championship. The 5-foot-9, three-time contest champion (he won in 2006, 2009 and 2010) said that he turned down an invitation to participate in order to allow a new generation of dunkers have their shot at the crown.

 

"I'm the king around here. I'm going to retire on top," Robinson told the Globe. "I'm getting older, man, that's all it is. I'm trying to conquer something else now. Maybe the 3-point contest one day if I shoot a high enough percentage, skills competition, H-O-R-S-E. You never know. Anything. I'm chillin' this year. I'm just being a fan this year."

 

The 26-year-old is averaging 7.8 points and 2....

Pats practice: Woodhead, Koppen cleared

FOXBORO -- Defensive lineman Myron Pryor and linebacker Jermaine Cunningham were the only players missing from the start of Patriots practice as the team began on-field preparations for the Jets this Sunday in the AFC Divisional playoff at Gillette Stadium. 

 

Pryor has been nursing a back injury while Cunningham is dealing with a calf problem. But the good news for the Patriots was the clearance of Danny Woodhead (concussion) and Dan Koppen to full contact practice. Aaron Hernandez, who missed the last two games with a hip injury, was on hand as well and cleared for contact.
