WILMINGTON -- Injured Bruins center David Krejci told reporters Thursday that he plans to be ready for training camp upon getting screws removed from his wrist in a month. Out since the beginning of Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, Krejci has frequented Ristuccia Arena as he continues to recover.
"I've been doing rehab for the past month and it's going good so far, so hopefully it will go that way," Krejci said. "I'm going to have surgery in [four weeks] to take the screws out and after that I should be able to go on the ice and start lifting much heavier weights than I'm used to right now.

Krejci had surgery on the wrist in early May and began his rehab a month ago. He plans on being ready after another month. For more on the Bruins, go to...

Mannix said he thinks the Knicks and Nets are out of the running, but the Cavaliers and Bulls still have a shot. "Right now, momentum is building for a short-term deal in Cleveland," he said.
Mannix also said that even if James does join Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, the Heat aren't necessarily the favorite to win a title. "Even if those...
