Kalish to undergo shoulder surgery

According to a major league source, Red Sox outfielder Ryan Kalish is likely to undergo surgery for a shoulder ailment, forcing the outfielder to miss spring training. The injury is to Kalish’s right (non-throwing) shoulder. He’s expected to have the procedure performed by Dr. Lewis Yocum next week. The procedure is expected to keep the 24-year-old out longer than his absence at the beginning of the 2012 season.

Kalish underwent two separate surgeries prior to the ’12 season, on both a bulging disk in his neck and a torn labrum in his left (throwing) shoulder — not the same shoulder on which he’ll have the operation next week. He didn’t begin...

Seidenberg game-time decision, Rask in net
By: DJ Bean

Dennis Seidenberg will participate in warmups prior to Friday night’s game against the Islanders and will be a game-time decision as he looks to return from a lower-body injury that has kept him out for the last two games.

“He’ll be game-time,” Claude Julien said after Friday’s morning skate. “I can tell you I’m more optimistic than pessimistic though, but again, game-time for the right reasons that we want to make sure that he is ready to go.”

Seidenberg took part in the morning skate after staying off the ice (the team did not practice) on Thursday. The 31-year-old participated in line rushes with Dougie Hamilton, his partner in last Saturday’s win over the Rangers (the only game in which he’s played this season and the game in which he suffered the injury). It’s worth noting, however, that Seidenberg practiced on...

Celtics deny pumping in crowd noise

In the midst of the Celtics’ fifth straight loss on Thursday, TNT broadcaster Marv Albert made multiple comments that the Celtics were pumping fake crowd noise into TD Garden, noting that the cheering seems disproportionately loud when many fans are sitting down.

Do the Celtics use artificial crowd noise at TD Garden?

Yes No I don't know, but I like to vote in polls

During a drawn-out discussion about the subject, Albert told analyst Steve Kerr: “It’s artificial. It’s absurd. And they do it here all the time.”

Doc: Need to see that effort 'every night'

The message could not have been more clear from Doc Rivers.

Even in a loss, the energy and fight needs to be there if the Celtics are to get back on track and make a second-half run to the playoffs.

“If I saw that effort every night,” Rivers said, ‘I’d be very happy.”

He wasn’t happy with the fact his team lost its fifth straight after winning six in a row. He wasn’t happy with his team’s execution down the stretch. But he was satisfied with making life tough on Carmelo Anthony again, especially in the first half 26 minutes, when they held him to 4-for-15 shooting from the floor.

He was happy with the fact that his team trailed 80-70 with eight minutes left and made a charge to make it a two-point game.

He says the signed are there.

“We missed a lot of open shots,” Rivers said of his Celtics, who finished...
