Perkins to make season debut Tuesday

Celtics center Kendrick Perkins, out since tearing his ACL in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last season against the Lakers, will return to the C's lineup on Tuesday night vs. the Cavaliers. Perkins returns about 10 days before his target date (Feb. 4), but Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he was told late Monday by the team's medical staff that Perkins was cleared to play. He won't start and is likely to play between 12-16 minutes. ESPN's Chris Forsberg was first to report the development.

 

"I don’t know how much he’ll help us yet," Rivers said. "He will. Just his presence on the floor. We’re not activating for that. We’re activating him more because they say he’s ready to play." The Celtics were down to one healthy center in Semih Erden with Jermaine O'Neal and Shaquille O'Neal out of the lineup, but Rivers said that wasn't a consideration.

Daniels likely back with C's in Portland

Marquis Daniels is not with the Celtics as they play the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night, but Doc Rivers said that he would likely be back with the team when they start their four-game west coast trip in Portland Thursday. Daniels has been away from the team and is dealing with a family issue. Even with the retrun of Kendrick Perkins the Celtics are down to 10 players for the Cavs game.

 

In addition to Daniels, Shaquille O'Neal (hip) will not play. Jermaine O'Neal and Delonte West are also out with injuries and Avery Bradley is with the team's D-League affiliate in Maine.

Downright Perky: C's cruise in Perk's return

Paul Pierce scored 17 of his game-high 24 points in the first quarter and Kendrick Perkins played 16 minutes off the bench in his return to game action as the Celtics blasted the hapless Cavaliers, 112-95, Tuesday night at TD Garden. The Celtics improved to an Eastern Conference-best 34-10 and 22-3 at home. Cleveland — in its first season in the post-LeBron James era — lost its 18th straight, the longest in the NBA since the Nets lost 19 in a row last season. 

 

Perkins made his 2011 season debut when he replaced Semih Erden with 8:02 left in the first quarter. He played just over five minutes in his first stint of the year. He made 3-of-5 from the field and finished with seven points. He also grabbed six rebounds and dished out three assists in his first game action since tearing the ACL in his right knee early in Game 6 of the NBA finals last spring against the Lakers. 

 

Rajon Rondo had 11 points and...

Report: Red Sox interested in Beimel
By: DJ Bean

According to Maureen Mullen (via twitter), the Red Sox are interested in free agent left-handed relief pitcher Joe Beimel. Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun notes Sox are one of five teams after the lefty. According to Connolly, the Orioles and another American League team are reportedly among the other clubs interested in Beimel's services.

 

However, if the Red Sox are pursuing Beimel, it is likely on a minor league contract, reports WEEI.com's Alex Speier.  According to a team source, it is "doubtful" that the Sox would sign a pitcher to a major league contract at this point.

Cashman: Jeter could move to CF

Yankees GM Brian Cashman, in an appearance on WFAN in New York, suggested that while Derek Jeter will be the Yankees' shortstop in 2011, he believes that a future position change is likely. When that happens, Cashman believes that Jeter will shift to center field.

 

“I like corner outfielders and corner infielders who have power, so for me, if [Jeter's] ever gonna move, it’s probably gonna be a Robin Yount situation. But we don’t have to deal with it at this point,” Cashman said, in remarks detailed by ESPN.com. “We’ll deal with it when we have to.”
