NBA: 'No evidence of bad faith' with Green

The NBA has awarded the Celtics a 2013 second-round draft pick from Oklahoma City in response to a complaint filed by the Celtics over the Jeff Green trade in February 2011. Green missed the entire 2011-12 season following heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm.

In a statement, the NBA said:

"As part of a ruling in a trade disclosure dispute between the Boston Celtics and the Oklahoma City Thunder, NBA Commissioner David Stern today awarded the Celtics a 2013 second-round draft pick held by the Thunder. Stern found that there was no evidence of bad faith or any intent to withhold information on the part of Thunder management or its physicians, but that Oklahoma City's cardiologists were in possession of information about Jeff Green that was not shared with Thunder management and that should have been disclosed to the Celtics in connection with the trade of Green in February 2011."

The pick is believed to be the Bobcats' second-...

Buchholz diagnosed with esophagitis

The Red Sox released a statement Tuesday prior to their game against the Blue Jays regarding the condition of pitcher Clay Buchholz:

"Clay Buchholz has esophagitis which led to an erosion of the esophagus and an associated gastrointestinal bleed. He has been evaluated and observed at Mass General Hospital. Clay is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery."

Web MD defines esophagitis as, "Esophagitis is an inflammation of the lining of the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. If left untreated, this condition can become very uncomfortable, causing problems with swallowing, ulcers, and scarring of the esophagus."

Buchholz was scratched from his scheduled start Sunday, having been admitted to Mass General.

Ellsbury could start rehab games by Friday

Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury, out since April 13 after suffering a subluxation of his right shoulder, might be able to start playing in games on a minor league rehab assignment as soon as Friday, according to Sox manager Bobby Valentine. At the beginning of his rehab assignment, which will commence with the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League Red Sox, Ellsbury will serve as a designated hitter.

Valentine characterized himself as "optimistic" but "cautious" about Ellsbury's progress.

"I think it's great the he got himself back to the point where he can be back on the field," said Valentine.

Ellsbury was hitting .192 with a .300 OBP and .269 slugging mark at the time of his injury. When Ellsbury begins playing in games, it will start a 20-day clock for his participation in major league games, at the end of which -- barring a physical setback -- he would be expected to return to the Red Sox' major league team...

Lowell: Youk trade solved 'awkward situation'
By: DJ Bean

Former Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell joined The Big Show Tuesday to discuss the Red Sox and the trade of Kevin Youkilis. 

Lowell said that while the return the Sox got -- pitcher Zach Stewart and utility man Brent Lillibridge -- wasn't overwhelming, the team was able to get out of an "awkward situation," as the veteran Youkilis had lost playing time to 23-year-old Will Middlebrooks. 

"We'll see if it's a good trade," Lowell said. "This is a wait-and-see thing. I understand the move for the Red Sox. From what I've seen, I love what I've seen from Middlebrooks. Young kid, strong, has got power, is a run-producer. He's shown that he can handle this level. Now, is there a track record? No, but I think there's enough of what they've seen that they say, 'You know what? We're freeing ourselves of an awkward situation,' because when the other guys come back, what are you going to do?

"You can't throw...
