Doc enforces 'no talking' rule

WALTHAM -- On Saturday Rivers invoked a “no talking” rule on offense during practice. “I just told everybody today that they were too loud and so I said we’re going to have a non-talk practice for the next half hour,” he explained. The rule, however, turned out to be difficult to enforce. The players joked that Rivers was running a communist practice and had a hard time following along with the temporary restriction. Visit Green Street for more on the story.

Allen knocked down, leaves practice

WALTHAM - Ray Allen left Celtics practice on Saturday after getting unintentionally elbowed above the left eye and knocked to the ground by Kendrick Perkins. Allen received stitches above his left eye. “The sad thing is it was a skeleton offense. There was no defense,” said Doc Rivers. “We run a lot of hand-off stuff as you know and it didn’t go well. It was a hand-off with Perk and Perk had his elbow up while he was supposed to be handing it off to Ray. And those are the ones that hurt because you don’t expect those cuts to come at that time.” Visit Green Street for more information.

Reports: Hoyer to become Padres GM

According to multiple reports, Red Sox Assistant G.M. Jed Hoyer will be named the G.M. of the San Diego Padres. CBSSports.com is reporting that Hoyer's hiring will be announced in a press conference in San Diego early next week, perhaps on Monday.
 
Hoyer, 35, has been with the Red Sox since 2002, when he was hired as an intern. He was named Assistant to the General Manager in 2003, served briefly as the co-G.M. of the Sox (along with Ben Cherington) from Dec. 2005-Jan. 2006, before being named Assistant G.M. with Theo Epstein’s return to the organization in 2006.
 
Hoyer is perhaps best known for having spent his Thanksgiving in 2003 at Curt Schilling’s house, helping to convince the pitcher to waive his no-trade clause and agree to come to Boston. Hoyer also played significant roles in the deal that brought Coco Crisp to the Red...

Baby set for C's opener, Scal & TA not

WALTHAM --  Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Friday that despite some minor back issues with Glen Davis in the preseason, the power forward should be ready to go for Tuesday's opener in Cleveland. Davis played 16 minutes last Sunday in Toronto, scoring nine points off the bench. However, the news is not as promising for Brian Scalabrine [right ankle] and Tony Allen [right knee]. "Scal, his ankle, I don't expect him to be ready for opening night, but I'm not sure yet," Rivers said. "Tony is a definite 'no' but everybody else is good." For more, visit the Green Street blog.

KG: Enough with the injury questions

WALTHAM  --  Kevin Garnett reached his breaking point on Friday afternoon with questions about whether he is physically ready and back to 100 percent following surgery last May to remove bone spurs behind his right knee. "Next question," he answered when asked. But the question was asked moments later, in a different way. "I just told you. That [stuff] is getting old, now. That [stuff] getting real old. You're going to have to sit in your offices and come up with some new questions. Drink a little more beer now or whatever gets you going to come up with your questions." Told that he's likely going to hear that same question all season long, Garnett replied, "You're going to get the same answer, alright?" For more, visit the Green Street blog.
