J. O'Neal to miss Kings game

Kevin Garnett isn't the only Celtic player who won't be able to play Wednesday against the Kings. Jermaine O'Neal will also miss the game after his knee swelled up Wednesday morning. O'Neal missed 19 games with a knee injury, but he returned on Christmas Day and has played in the last 10 games. O'Neal didn't play in the second half against in a blowout win over Toronto last Friday, but he played 21 minutes against the Rockets on Monday.

 

"I’m concerned," Doc Rivers said. "He’s [played three] weeks now and a practice and his knee swelled up. First of all it has to be extremely frustrating for him because he worked his butt off to get back and he was playing well. And secondly, we all have common sense. That’s a concern. Why is this happening? We have to figure that out."

Garnett may be out until Monday

The original prognosis for Kevin Garnett's return from a strained calf was two weeks. Now it appears that it will take a little longer. Garnett won't play tonight against the Kings, as expected, but Doc Rivers sounded pessimistic about whether Garnett would be ready to go Friday against the Bobcats. That puts Monday's game with the Magic as the new target date.

 

"Eddie [Lacerte, the team's trainer] and I talked about it yesterday and it will really depend on what we do [Thursday]," Rivers said. "My guess [for Friday] is no, because after that we have two days off. My thinking right now, unless he comes out and practices the whole practice and looks great, is probably off Friday too and then probably [play] Monday." 

 

Rivers is aware that people are questioning the nature of Garnett's injury, but he insisted that nothing has changed except the timeline. "There’s no conspiracy here or...

Pedroia: Sox have no problem with Ellsbury
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia joined The Big Show for his weekly "Laser Show" segment on Wednesday. A master in the art of trash talk, Pedroia said that Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who called Tom Brady an "ass---" among other things, hasn't won enough to warrant such talk. Brady has won three Super Bowls, while the Florida State product is still looking for his first ring. 

 

"It's 3-0," Pedroia said. "So let's stop talking about 'F you' and stuff until we get even."

 

"Everyone plays in their sport long enough that if you're going to talk and do your thing, it's going to come around at some point and get you, and you've got to be able to handle it."

 

Pedroia added that given the Jets' trash-talking and touchdown celebrations vs. the Patriots, Brady has the right to show emotion when he beats the Jets, the very thing Cromartie took...

Cromartie stands by Brady talk: 'I hate him'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Antonio Cromartie met with the media after Jets practice on Wednesday, a day after his obscenity-laced tirade against Tom Brady. The cornerback was asked if he had any regrets regarding the comments made to the New York Daily News.

 

"No. Why would I regret them?" asked Cromartie. "That's my opinion and how I feel about it. There's no reason for me to sit back and take anything I said about him back, and I'm not."

 

Cromartie was asked again if he thought Brady taunted the Jets in the 45-3 Patriots win in Week 13.

 

"Yeah he did," said Cromartie. "Be professional. He's been there before. Act like you've scored touchdowns before. My opinion is never going to change about Brady. At the end of the day it's going to be what it's going to be. I hate him, he hates the Jets."
