Doc on Daniels: 'Probably out for a while'

While the Celtics got good news on the availability of Glen Davis and Rasheed Wallace for Game 6 against Orlando, the news was much more pessimistic on Marquis Daniels, who is out indefinitely after suffering a concussion minutes after Davis sustained his own in Game 5 against the Magic. 

 

"Marquis is out and probably out for a while," Rivers said. "If they're putting a uniform on, they're good [to play].

 

"[Daniels] had tingling in his feet, his hands and couldn't feel either one for a while so that gets dangerous.  We don't know how long. He feels good now. Everything's back. That's something you have to be careful with. Eddie [Lacerte] said he's the one, you just can't take a chance."

 

Brian Scalabrine is dressing for Game 6 and is taking Daniels' spot on the active roster.

Davis was hit by Magic center Dwight Howard with an elbow and staggered to half court before collasping. "He caught me off guard," Davis said. "That was the big thing. I didn't see it coming." Davis also said that he didn't lose a tooth, but he have a brace in his moutch knocked out. Asked if he thought the play was dirty, Davis said, "I don't know what to think."

Daisuke explains 'lower body soreness'

Prior to the Red Sox game with the Royals Friday night at Fenway Park Daisuke Matsuzaka clarified what he meant when he referenced having "lower body soreness" throughout his Thursday night outing.

 

"It doesn't happen that often. I just think it's one of those days where your body feels a little heavier than normal. You feel a little bit lethargic," Matsuzaka said through translator Masa Hoshino. "I think that's what it was. But today I think because I relied a lot more on my upper body pitching in the game last night, I think my upper body is a little more tired than usual.

 

"It's certainly not an injury. I wouldn't even go so far as calling it fatigue. I think that can happen to any player, where you get out of bed in the morning and feel a little bit off. It just so happens yesterday was one of those days ... my body just wouldn't cooperate."

 

Matsuzaka finished his...
