Belichick: 'We'll see' on Gronkowski injury

On a conference call with reporters Tuesday afternoon, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said “we’ll see how it goes” when it comes to the health of tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was spotted at Gillette Stadium Monday in a walking boot after suffering an injury to his lower left leg in the AFC championship game.

“We haven’t practiced, obviously, in the last couple of days. We’ll just see how all that is when it’s time to go,” Belichick said when asked if he felt fortunate that the injury wasn’t more serious.

Gronkowski was tackled by Baltimore defensive back Bernard Pollard at the end of the third quarter and landed awkwardly on his left leg. After leaving the field briefly for treatment, he returned for the bulk of the fourth quarter, and said after the game that he felt “good.”

“As you know, it’s hard to gauge injuries,” Belichick said....

Howard: Celtics' O'Neal 'crossed the line'

BOSTON -- In the third quarter of Monday night's 87-56 blowout of the Magic, Celtics center Jermaine O'Neal took issue with what he perceived as an elbow thrown his way by the Magic's Dwight Howard, so O'Neal waved his finger in the All-Star center's face as he shouted a few choice words.

The two had to be separated by teammates, and both O'Neal and Howard were assessed technical fouls.

"It's stupid to fight on the court at all, so I wasn't about to go back into it with him," said Howard, who was held to 18 points on 4-of-15 shooting in the loss. "But that's kind of crossing the line when somebody puts their hand in your faceI just put his hand out of my face. I didn't run up on him. It's basketball. We're not MMA fighters. I don't know why I got a tech, but I'm cool."

Howard has led the league in technical fouls each of the past two seasons, and he's already picked up three this season. O'Neal's technical was his...

Mashup: 49ers' Harbaugh still mad at refs

With 2:29 remaining in Sunday's NFC championship game, Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled the ball on the New York 21-yard line and it was recovered by the 49ers. However, the officials ruled that Bradshaw's forward progress had been stopped, so the Giants retained possession. That doesn't sit well with 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, who compared the play to the infamous tuck rule call that helped Tom Brady and the Patriots defeat the Raiders in the Snow Bowl 10 years ago.

"In my opinion, that was a fumble," Harbaugh said Monday. "I'm sure the league will defend it and the officials will defend it. But to me, that play was still going on. There was still struggling by Bradshaw. … I felt like it was analogous with the tuck rule."

Also in the news, former Lakers forward Robert Horry offered his take on the Shaquille O'Neal-Kobe Bryant feud, blaming Phil Jackson for inciting the two players.

Van Gundy: 'That was an absolute beatdown'

Magic coach Stan Van Gundy didn't mince words after his team set a franchise low for points in a game and tied a Celtics record for fewest field goals allowed with 16.

"It's the first game in my career that I've been through where literally not one guy had played well," Van Gundy said. "There's no finger pointing. I'm foremost among them. I'm not calling out my team, I couldn't find anything for us to do. That was an absolute beatdown and it was actually in a lot of ways a lot worse than the score indicated."

Boston took a 10-point lead into halftime, and never looked back. The Celtics held the Magic to only 20 second-half points and just five field goals.

"That's the most dominating defensive performance, at least, I've ever had against me," Van Gundy said.

"I don't think we gave up," the coach added. "We just continued to get our [butt] kicked."

Horton likely suffering from concussion
By: DJ Bean

 Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told reporters Monday that forward Nathan Horton likely has a concussion and is considered day-to-day by the team. 

Horton left Sunday's win over the Flyers in the second period after he was hit in the head by Philadelphia forward Tom Sestito. The league did not discipline Sestito for the hit to the head. 

Horton's postseason was ended in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals last June when he was the victim of a blidnside hit from Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome. After struggling to begin this season, Horton admitted that he still wasn't back to being his usual self after the concussion.
