West leaves Celtics game with ankle injury

After Wizards center JaVale McGee ran over him at midcourt in the third quarter, Celtics guard Delonte West left the game with a sprained right ankle and will not return to action on Monday night.

In late February, West injured the same right ankle in practice and missed eight games before returning on March 16. Even after reentering the Celtics lineup, West told reporters that he still had a chipped bone in his ankle. He had 11 points and five assists in 23 minutes against the Wizards before leaving the game.

Maddon: Crawford fits best in No. 2 spot

Speaking before his team's game with the Red Sox Monday night at Fenway Park, Rays manager Joe Maddon explained that in a perfect scenario he believed Carl Crawford's best spot in the batting order was hitting second. Maddon added that in his opinion Crawford's second-best spot was hitting third, with the leadoff spot serving as his third option.

“In a perfect world, with what I know, I would go 2, 3, 1," Maddon said. "And I’m just talking about his comfort zone. You could make the perfect argument that he should be a No. 1 hitter. I’ve often said he’s a lot like Rickey Henderson. He’s got a great combination of speed and power. I get it. But just to consider comfort within a player's comfort zone, wherever that may be. I was always aware of that and able to maneuver it.

"I’ve never had a lineup as thick as this lineup. He is almost like a [Ben] Zobrist to them. You can almost hit him all over the...

Johnny Damon: 'Manny is in a better place'

Johnny Damon returned to Fenway Park Monday for the first time as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays. It appeared a week ago he would be returning with another 2004 World Series hero - Manny Ramirez. But Ramirez announced his retirement rather than face an MLB-imposed 100-game suspension for an 'issue' concerning a recent test under MLB's PED testing program. 

“It’s a very sad thing that happened with Manny," Damon said prior to Monday's game. "I wish him nothing but the best. He was a great teammate of mine. He was a great player. I was just hoping that we would continue to have all the fun that we had when we had the press conference. For it to end so abruptly and for the reason, it’s sad. I hope Manny is in a better place. I heard he’s going to be traveling. He deserves to do it. After 18 or 19 years in the big leagues, it’s time for him to walk away. Unfortunately, it’s under these terms.

"I...

Report: Shaq expected back for Game 1

Despite playing once since Feb. 1 due to multiple injuries, Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal is expected to practice with the team on Thursday and return for Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs, according to Globe reporter Gary Washburn.

 

O'Neal has missed 43 games this season, including the last four with a strained calf he suffered after playing five minutes against the Pistons on April 3. He did not play in the 26 games prior to that game because of an inflamed Achilles tendon.

 

If the Eastern Conference playoff picture remains as is, the Celtics would face the Knicks in the first round. Meanwhile, multiple reports indicate that the Celtics will sit Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen -- if not all the starters -- againt the Wizards on Monday night. Glen Davis, Delonte West and Jeff Green are expected to start in their place.
