WALTHAM -- Shaquille O'Neal will likely not be able to return to the Celtics lineup on Wednesday after all, coach Doc Rivers said following Saturday's practice. Rivers indicated he was hoping to have both O'Neal and Delonte West back by Wednesday to help them begin getting playing time to gear up for the playoffs.
"Probably not going to be ready Wednesday because his foot is bothering him a little again," Rivers said. "Delonte, we're hoping Wednesday."
O'Neal has missed the last 12 games and has been out since Feb. 1 with a sore right lower leg and sore right achilles tendon. Delonte West missed his third straight game Friday with a sprained right ankle. Glen Davis shot free throws following Saturday's practice but is still nursing patellar tendinitis in his left knee and is expected to miss several more days of practice while Von Wafer, who injured his right calf during Friday's win over the...
Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters in Fort Myers that both outfielder J.D. Drew and pitcher Jon Lester have been sent home with the flu. Drew was scratched from his scheduled appearance in a game against the Orioles in Sarasota, while Lester "probably won't" make his scheduled start on Sunday against the Mets in Port St. Lucie. In Lester's place, Michael Bowden is expected to start on Sunday.

After scoring 27 points and drilling his first five 3-point attempts of the night in a 107-103 win against the Warriors, Ray Allen admitted that a sore right knee nearly forced him to miss his first game of the season.
"I just had a little bit of soreness in there that I worked through over the last day and a half," Allen said. "Coming in this morning, it felt similar and I was kind of taking it hour-by-hour and seeing how it felt when I got down here and when I got down here, it felt better.
"This morning I just came in and got treatment and just try to play it by ear. That's why I have a suit on in case I was on the bench. I honestly thought when I came down here, there might be a chance but I came down here as usual to be ready to play. It's hard from one day to the next and then the day before say, 'I'm not playing tomorrow' because you feel a little soreness. You have to get in there and...
Clay Buchholz tossed three shutout innings, getting five groundballs and striking out a pair of batters, in his second spring tuneup as the Red Sox beat the Yankees, 5-3. Buchholz threw 24 of his 45 pitches for strikes in working his way through the Yankees' regular lineup.
Shortstop Jose Iglesias, however, proved the star of the game. He collected two hits and a walk in four plate appearances while also making a dazzling play in the field. In the seventh, he made a diving stop of a grounder up the middle, jumped to his feet and regained his balance just long enough to unleash a strong throw to first to clip Jorge Vazquez.
Ray Allen had 27 points and made his first five attempts from 3-point range, while Paul Pierce had 13 of his 27 in the third quarter as the Celtics survived a late charge by the Warriors, 107-103, Friday night at TD Garden. Jeff Green had his best game yet for his new team, scoring 21 in 28 minutes for the Celtics, who won their fourth straight. Allen's offensive rebound with 13 seconds left led to a Warriors' foul as he sealed the win with two free throws with 12 seconds remaining.
Allen hit his first seven shots from the floor, helping the Celtics race out to a 64-53 halftime lead. Monta Ellis bettered his 19.8 points per game career average against Boston with a game-high 41 points and helped the Warriors cut an 18-point Celtics' third-quarter lead to seven entering the fourth.
Ellis drilled a 3-pointer from the left baseline with 4:06 left to cut the Boston lead down to four, 100-96. His second straight...
