Kendrick Perkins cleared for full practice

Celtic center Kendrick Perkins told reporters prior to Monday night's game against the Rockets that he's been cleared to participate in full practices next week.

 

Already playing 3-on-3 in practice, Perkins said he could return to game action in three weeks from the ACL tear he suffered in Game 6 of the 2010 NBA Finals that kept him out of Game 7 against the Lakers as well as the first 36 games of this season.

 

Perkins' new timetable is similar to that of Celtics guard Delonte West, who broke his right wrist after playing just five games this year. Both players were seen on the floor at the TD Garden shooting around prior to Monday night's game.

Belichick: 'This is winner take all'

Patriots coach Bill Belichik made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Monday afternoon and addressed Jets coach Rex Ryan‘s comments that the playoff game on Sunday will be about "about Bill Belichick vs. Rex Ryan."

 

"I'm not worried about what they say, I'm worried about what we do," said Belichick. "I don't know, we're just getting ready to play."

 

Belichick was asked about the bye week and the possibility that a week off might actually hurt a New England team that was heading into the postseason on a eight-game winning streak.

 

"We've had byes before," said Belichick. "Have one every week in the regular season. Had some in postseason. We feel comfortable with where the team is at … the players will be in tomorrow [Tuesday] and we will be ready to roll."

 

The new playoff overtime scoring rules has been a source of...

Ryan: Revis 'best player in football'

Jets coach Rex Ryan gave his All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis the highest of praise on Monday, telling the assembled media at his press conference that Revis is the top player in the NFL. Revis shut down Reggie Wayne in the Jets win over the Colts, holding the wideout to just a single catch for one yard.

 

“Quite honestly, he’s the best player in football,” Ryan said. “That is what you saw out there. Hold Reggie Wayne, who led the league in catches, I think he had 111 catches, to one catch for one yard. That tells you how good Darrelle Revis is. I know he’s probably not going to win the Defensive Player of the Year award, but the impact he has is amazing. We were able to do some coverages during the game where we actually played man-coverage strictly on his side regardless of who the receiver was and roll their coverage away from it. You only do that if you have Darrelle Revis. He’s an amazing once-in-a-...

Gedman named hitting coach of Spinners

The Red Sox on Monday named former catcher Rich Gedman as hitting coach of the Lowell Spinners. Gedman played 11 seasons for the Sox (1980-90) and was twice an All-Star.

 

“We are pleased to welcome Rich Gedman back to the Red Sox organization and into the Spinners family,” said Spinners President/General Manager Tim Bawmann. “Having been a part of Red Sox nation, Roger Clemens 20 strikeout game and the 1986 World Series as part of a fantastic career, Rich has a wealth of baseball knowledge he can impart on our young players.”

 

The club also announced that Chili Davis has been named hitting coach for Triple-A Pawtucket. Davis was a three-time World Series champion (Minnesota in 1991 and the Yankees in 1998 and 1999) and a three-time All-Star with the Giants in 1984 and 1986 and the Angels in 1994. The Red Sox made a flurry of personnel moves on Monday, which also included the addition of...

Kevin Garnett out against the Rockets
By: admin

Kevin Garnett's return will have to wait at least one more game, as the Celtics forward will miss his seventh straight game Monday night against the Rockets in Boston.

 

"We had a shootaround this morning, and he didn’t participate, so that mean he wasn’t ready," C's head coach Doc Rivers said prior to the game. "I didn’t even ask. He’ll tell us and so will [team trainer] Eddie (Lacerte)."

 

Garnett attended the morning shootaround but did not participate. The Celtics face the Kings at home on Wednesday, and Garnett could return then from the strained calf he suffered Dec. 29 against the Pistons.
