Wilcox out indefinitely for cardiac tests

LOS ANGELES -- Doc Rivers isn't sure when Chris Wilcox will be back with the team, or if he'll ever be back with them as he undergoes more tests for a heart-related condition. The coach said before the Celtics took on the Lakers on Sunday that Wilcox has been tested periodically for heart-related issues throughout the last four or five years.

"He never had a condition but I think we all have different things that you’re a candidate for," Rivers said." And I think he was maybe in that, but it was never a condition that was risky or anything like that. Unfortunately now it may be."

Rivers also referenced forward Jeff Green who is out for the season after a preseason physical found a heart aneurysm. Green had surgery in January and is expected to return to the court next season.

"It’s not a great place. It’s scary. It really is," Rivers said. "The chances of having one of these in a year...

B's suffer more injuries in latest loss
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins suffered a 5-2 loss that saw Tim Thomas get yanked after a period, but it was the other players who left the game that should have the already injury-riddled B's concerned. 

Adam McQuaid left the game in the first period after hurting himself trying to hit Penguins forward James Neil, but he wasn't the only Bruin to suffer an injury. Patrice Bergeron was hurt blocking a shot in the second period. After leaving the bench and going to the room, he came back for a shift but left the game again. Bergeron took one more shift in the third period, but ended up leaving the game for the third time and did not return. Max Sauve, making his NHL debut in place of the injured Benoit Pouliot, was also injured in the second period, meaning the B's played with only 10 healthy forwards. 

To make matters even worse, defenseman Johnny Boychuk was the victim of a hit from Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin that could be looked at by the league....

Iglesias sidelined by groin injury

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias was supposed to make the trip to Sarasota on Sunday morning to play a "B" game against the Orioles, but instead he was scratched and skipped the trip while dealing with what manager Bobby Valentine described as "a little stiff groin."

"I believe it’s his left, and if it’s not, it’s his right," said Valentine. "Call it a hunch."

Valentine said that Iglesias incurred the injury last Monday, but only mentioned it to team trainers on Saturday. In all likelihood, the shortstop will sit out of games through the Sox' first off-day of the Grapefruit League schedule on Wednesday.

"I’m going to see how it is when he comes tomorrow. I have the inclination to not play him through the off day, unless he’s perfect," said Valentine. "He’s a kid who has great desire, and right now I’m not going to let...

Wilcox not with C's, undergoing heart tests

Celtics forward Chris Wilcox did not make the trip to Los Angeles after what the team called "routine cardiac testing," that will require follow-up tests. Wilcox missed Friday's game with Portland with the team citing a personal matter.

There is no timeframe for the tests although Wilcox will miss the team's next two games against the Lakers and Clippers at the least. A free agent forward, Wilcox is averaging 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in his first season with the team.

In an unrelated matter, the Celtics had to void the contract of Jeff Green after tests revealed a heart aneurysm. Green had heart surgery and is sitting out the season.

Aceves, Bard shine against Rays

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- After Daniel Bard turned in three shutout innings, Alfredo Aceves followed suit with three scoreless innings of his own, allowing just two hits while striking out two, as the Red Sox shut out the Rays, 5-0. In his last two outings, Aceves has retired 15 of the 17 men he's faced.

While Bard is a presumed frontrunner for the rotation, Aceves has pitched as well as any candidate for the last two spots in the rotation. On Saturday, he mixed fastball, curves, cutters and his changeup while throwing an efficient 40 pitches, 29 for strikes.

While Aceves carried enormous value last year in the bullpen last year, pitching coach Bob McClure offered an interesting perspective on the role in which a pitcher's value can be greatest.

"He’s someone we have to  eally seriously look at as a possible guy in that starting rotation," said McClure. "To me, you win with starting pitching. Is it nice to have a...
