Now that the NBA has suspended Kevin Garnett for Game 2 of the Celtics series with the Heat, the ig question for the Celtics is who will srart in his place? When the curtain lifted on practice Monday afternoon, Glen Davis was working with the first team, but Doc Rivers wouldn't committ to a specific plan. Both Davis and Rasheed Wallace also played coy.

A frusturated Dustin Pedroia briefly spoke to the media following the Red Sox' 8-2 loss to the Rays on Monday.

"I’d like to make a prediction [about a return date], but it’s kind of hard to tell. I wish it would have been a little bit quicker, but this is one of those things that needs rest," said Ellsbury. "It’s hard to say [whether a DL trip will be needed]. I’m hoping that I’ll wake up tomorrow and feel a little bit better."
Red Sox manager Terry Francona said that Ellsbury will have an "aggressive" day on Tuesday to test the progress of his chest. He is still experiencing a sharp pain when he breathes deeply -- something that Ellsbury said was limiting his...
Tampa Bay starter Jeff Niemann allowed just a pair of runs in seven innings to lead the Rays past the Red Sox, 8-2, on Monday afternoon. The Red Sox now own a record of 4-9 and stand six games out of first place following the four-game sweep by the Rays.
B.J. Upton homered and drove in three runs for the Rays (10-3) and Jason Bartlett had three hits and three runs.
