Savard: Saturday return would be 'fun'
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins center Marc Savard reiterated on Tuesday that he will not be playing when the B's take on the Flyers in Philadelphia on Wednesday. He noted that though he's not ready to get back into games just yet, he isn't feeling particularly behind in any areas. 


"I feel like I'm skating good, and battling with a 6-foot-5 guy [Adam McQuaid] every day, that's helped out. I'm  feeling good in all the areas. Still, the game's going to be a different thing. I'm not going to have miracles in the first game, which I hope maybe I do. It's going to be a little bit of time, but hopefully I can contribute every night."


Asked about Saturday night's game, Savard said, "That would be a lot of fun. Hopefully I can get in by then."

West undergoes surgery on wrist

Delonte West underwent surgery to repair a displaced right wrist fracture Tuesday morning at New England Baptist Hospital, the team announced. The surgery was performed by Dr. Drew Terrono and Dr. Hervey Kimball and assisted by Celtics Team Physician Dr. Brian McKeon and was deemed successful by the team.


There is no immediate update on when West may be able to return to the Celtics who are now missing both he and Kendrick Perkins (knee surgery) for a significant period of time. Center Jermaine O’Neal is also out at least through this week although there is no update on when he will be back either. The Celtics have said they won’t make a move to replace West and will rely on Von Wafer and rookie guard Avery Bradley to fill in the gap.

Brady among those missing at practice

FOXBORO — The following players were missing from the start of Patriots practice Tuesday afternoon: quarterback Tom Brady, cornerback Jonathan  Wilhite, offensive lineman Stephen Neal, defensive lineman Myron Pryor, defensive lineman Ron Brace and defensive lineman Mike Wright.

While most of the other players have been dogged by various injuries over the previous week or so — including Brady, who has had a foot problem as of late — Brace's absence is his first in some time. No Brace, as well as Pryor and Wright, leaves the New England defensive line a little thin at practice Tuesday afternoon.

The practice session, which is being held in full pads, is on the upper practice fields behind Gillette Stadium. New England is preparing for a Monday night showdown with the Jets.
