Jermaine O'Neal missed the last two games of the Celtics road trip with a knee injury and flew back to Boston early ater receiving a second opinion on his knee in Miami. O'Neal wasn't at practice Monday and his return is up in the air. The Celtics simply don't know yet how bad the injury is, or how much time it will take for him to return.
"Two, three weeks would be a guestimate," Doc Rivers said. "We don’t know exactly. We’re going through a couple of more evaluations." Rivers did say that he doesn't think surgery is an option, at least not at this point.
The Celtics might also be without Marquis Daniels when they play the Wizards on Wednesday. Rivers said that Daniels was away for family reasons and might not be back by Wednesday. There was some good news for the C's Monday, however, as rookie guard Avery Bradley participated in practice and Delonte West is now eligible having served...
In a conference call to discuss his hiring as the manager of the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Hall of Fame second baseman Ryne Sandberg told reporters that he had interviewed with the Red Sox about managing their Triple-A affiliate.
The Sox have been looking to replace Torey Lovullo, who spent 2010 as their manager in Pawtucket before joining John Farrell's coaching staff in Toronto. The organization has been talking to both internal and external candidates about the position, and apparently Sandberg was one of the individuals who was interviewed. However, the former Cubs great -- who had spent the last four seasons as a minor league manager in the Cubs system -- ended up returning to a Phillies organization that selected him in the 20th round of the 1978 draft.
Sandberg was passed over for the job of Cubs major league manager recently, with Chicago electing to hire Mike Quade. Sandberg turned down offers to join the...
FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick wasn't prepared to pour extra gas on the fire Monday afternoon when asked if the officials had control of the game when the Steelers took extra liberties with rough tackles after the whistle.
"Look, you've got two physical teams playing in a big game," Belichick said. "Emotions run high. I don't think that's uncommon."
Offensive lineman Logan Mankins took issue with the way Tom Brady was rolled into after his successful quarterback run for a third-quarter touchdown. Several Patriots felt the Steelers were taking liberties with Brady while he was prone and on the ground, trying to grab the back of his helmet and twist him awkwardly.
"I thought the game was, as far as that part of it goes, pretty well officiated," Belichick added. "There wasn't a lot of [dirty hits]. But that stuff happens in a lot of games, two...
Giants catcher Buster Posey and Rangers closer Neftali Feliz won the Rookie of the Year Awards for their respective leagues, presented by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Though Posey was not called up by the Giants until the end of May, he nonetheless claimed National League honors by hitting .305/.357/.505/.862 with 18 homers and 67 RBI in 108 games. The 23-year-old was a key component of the Giants team that won the NL West and then brought the first-ever championship to the San Francisco Giants. He claimed 20 of 32 votes to beat out Braves outfielder Jason Heyward, who had nine first-place votes. Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia (1) and Marlins first baseman Gaby Sanchez (2) claimed the other first-place votes en route to third- and fourth-place finishes, respectively.
Like Posey, Feliz was an impact contributor as a rookie for a team that reached the World Series. He took over closing duties in the first days of the...
Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork called in to the Dale & Holley show Monday afternoon to take part in his weekly conversation as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Following the bad week of practice leading into the Browns game, the Patriots rebounded last week with better preparation leading into Sunday night's game vs. the Steelers, and it paid off.
Said Wilfork: "Going into this past week, it was like, 'Let's get a good start.' Once we saw the film of Cleveland, we made the corrections, we put it behind us. I think everybody got off to a great start with practice. We had good practices last week and it showed yesterday. I think everybody took it upon themselves to do their job and try to play the game we needed to play. We all said we needed to play physical and we need to be aggressive against this football team, this Steelers football team. They don't know how to play no other way but physical and aggressive. We knew we...
