Delonte West surgery set for Tuesday

WALTHAM -- Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced that guard Delonte West will have surgery on Tuesday for the fractured right wrist he suffered last Wednesday night late in the second quarter against New Jersey after driving in for a lay-up. Rivers said the team will know more about West and his fate for the rest of the season following the procedure.

 

"Surgery [Tuesday] and then we'll know more after that," Rivers said after practice on Monday. 

 

Rivers aded starting point guard Rajon Rondo’s left hamstring is no longer an issue but his sore left foot still remains troublesome. “The foot is the bigger issue. The hamstring [injury] is gone for the most part.” Rivers said.

 

Rondo returned on Friday against Toronto after a three-game absence with a strained left hamstring. For more, visit the Celtics team page at...

Shaq misses Celtics practice unexcused

WALTHAM -- Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal missed practice on Monday when he forgot when practice began, according to coach Doc Rivers. The absence comes after the 12-4 Celtics were given Saturday and Sunday off by the coach to enjoy the Thanksgiving weekend. The Celtics confirmed he did make the team's flight to Cleveland for Tuesday night's game against the Cavaliers. 

 

"Today, we only had 11 guys, which sucks," Rivers said. "It hurts your practice because that means most of your guys are on the floor for the entire practice. That's not the way to go. He got times mixed up, he missed one, he owes us one. We're good."

 

Asked if he would punish O'Neal, Rivers joked, "I was going to spank him. He may not hurt. It may hurt me." The Celtics had a 90-minute practice that began at noon at their complex in Waltham.

Branch on D&H: 'I'm home now'

Patriots receiver Deion Branch stopped by for a brief visit with the Dale & Holley show Monday from Gillette Stadium as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Branch recounted his long touchdown pass from Tom Brady in Thursday's win over the Lions and talked about how grateful he is to be back in New England following the trade with the Seahawks.

 

"I'm just thankful for the opportunity that Mr. [Robert] Kraft and coach [Bill] Belichick came back to give me, the opportunity to come back and play here and join this team," he said. "I'm home now."

 

Branch said Brady makes his receivers want to run all out because he considers every option, as was the case on Thursday's big play, a 79-yard touchdown that tied the game in the third quarter.

 

"When the coaches install the plays, they have [options] 1's, 2's and 3's, by guys' names," Branch explained. "But it's really not that...

Savard: Return is 'just around the corner'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins center Marc Savard doesn't know when he will make his long-awaited season debut after battling post-concussion symptoms, but said on Monday that it won't be long before he is back. Following his third practice of the full-contact variety, Savard felt confident that he could soon be in the Bruins' lineup. 

 

"[It was] another good day, and a little bit of work after, and continuing to progress," Savard, who worked on battle drills with teammate Adam McQuaid, said. "Hopefully I'm going to get in soon, just around the corner."

 

Savard seemed quite sure that he would not be in the lineup when the Bruins take on the Flyers on Wednesday. Asked about his prospects of playing in Philadelphia, Savard replied, "I don't think so. No, I'm not going to be playing Wednesday. I don't think so."

 

The center's chances of playing on...
