Mashup: NBA might block Isiah deal

Criticism continues to hit the Knicks for re-hiring Isiah Thomas as a consultant after his disastrous performance as coach and president. But the deal might not stand. The NBA reportedly is considering blocking the move, as Thomas is a current college coach, set to begin his second season at Florida International. Meanwhile, Thomas went on a sports talk radio show in Miami Monday and implied that he might bail on FIU if he has to choose between the two jobs. Also in the news, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing blames "overtrained athlete syndrome" for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, but he doesn't have many supporters after his appeal was denied by the NFL. Read about those stories and check out videos, trivia and more at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

BC linebacker Herzlich misses practice

Boston College All-American Mark Herzlich was held out of practice Monday with a foot injury. Herzlich, who missed all of the 2009 season with bone cancer, was set to return to practice for the first time on Monday.

"Yeah, it's frustrating," Herzlich told the Boston Globe Monday. "It doesn't get much more frustrating, to be honest. Mentally preparing to come back for the first day and being ready to go was obviously one of the goals. With my leg, that is fine and that's ready to go. This foot set me back. It's frustrating, I've just got to take it in stride."

Lester, Sox earn series split with Yanks

Somebody needed to step up for the Red Sox, and Jon Lester, Daniel Bard, and Jonathan Papelbon did just that. The Sox starter befuddled the Yankees for much of Monday afternoon’s series finale at Yankee Stadium, holding the hosts scoreless through 6 1/3 innings before giving way to relievers Bard and Papelbon. The end result was a 2-1 win for the Sox over the Yanks and renewed optimism as Terry Francona’s team heads to Toronto. For more analysis, visit Closing Time on the Full Count blog.

Ellsbury ties Red Sox stolen base record

By stealing four bases in the Red Sox' series finale with the Yankees Monday, Jacoby Ellsbury tied Jerry Remy's mark for the most steals in one game by a member of the Sox. Ellsbury, who came into the game with two steals on the season, had previously stolen three bases in a game on three different occasions. Ellsbury became the first opposing player to steal four bases against the Yankees since Brady Anderson managed the feat in 1998. With swipes by Ryan Kalish and J.D. Drew, the Sox also totaled six steals in a game for the first time since June 17, 2008. For more on the Red Sox see the team page at weei.com/redsox.
