Shaq out, may miss road trip

Shaquille O'Neal will miss Friday night's game with the Bulls. It's the third straight game that Shaq has missed since colliding with Amar'e Stoudemire last week. Doc Rivers also said that Shaq may not make the team's road trip, which will take them from Oklahoma City to Dallas and then Miami and Memphis.


Also of concern for Rivers is the status of Rajon Rondo. The coach said that Rondo's feet have been bothering him, although he didn't specify an injury. Rivers said he wouldn't hesitate to take him out of the game if he looked like he was struggling.


The Celtics did receive a bit of roster relief from the league in regards to Delonte West who had counted as one of their 12 active players during his suspension. For the last five games of his suspension, West will now be listed among the inactives, although with injuries to Kendrick Perkins, Avery Bradley and now Shaq, the Celtics don't have 12 healthy players.

Welker: 'I'm not really big into' trash talk

FOXBORO -- In a week that has featured the trash-talking episodes between Kevin Garnett and Charlie Villanueva of the Pistons and Andrew Bogut of the Bucks, Patriots receiver said Friday he would much prefer letting his play on the field do the talking.


"For me, I feel like there's a line," Welker said Friday. "I'm not really big into it unless it's one of those deals where you do get into the heat of battle but it's not really one of my fortes. There are things said. I think it just depends on the player and the guy out there. Some guys like to do it, some don't. You can get caught up in the emotion of the game and probably say some things you wish you had back. 


Ray Allen of the Celtics said he cringes when he hears NFL players having a microphone on them during games and doesn't want to see the same thing in the NBA. Welker said Friday he can relate after wearing a microphone during a Patriots...

Favre did not return but did not sustain a concussion, as he passed tests performed Sunday night. Meanwhile, Gary Guyton was also fined $7,500 and penalized 15 yards for his hit on Favre late in the first quarter that helped set up Minnesota's first touchdown.
