Ainge on Big Show: Perkins' health a concern

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined The Big Show to talk about the trade that sent Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City and how he sees the new pieces fitting for his team. Ainge reiterated that there were a number of factors that led to the trade, including the financial ramifications of a new contract for Perkins, who would have been a free agent after this year, as well as the chance to add players who can help the Celtics win this year. Ainge also was concerned about Perkins' knees.

 

"I was worried about Perk's health," Ainge said. "Perk was not the same player coming off the knee surgery and then he had the sprained knee ligament against Golden State that was going to put him out for a few more weeks. There was some concern there."

 

Ainge added later in the interview: "There's one thing I would never question with Kendrick is his integrity, his character, his work ethic...

Report: Brady, Mankins could join union fight

Multiple outlets are reporting Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and offensive lineman Logan Mankins have agreed to serve as plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the NFL if the players’ association decides to decertify. The duo, as well as quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees, would lend their names to the suit similar to the one the NFL filed in 1993 that was headlined by former star Reggie White. (That suit, in many ways, paved the way for NFL free agency.)

However, the decertification hammer still hasn’t been dropped by the players. If the NFLPA does file for decertification (something they would have to do by 5 p.m. to have it affect the current CBA) the players would be allowed to file suit — which would then have the names of the players on it — against the owners for restricting trade. (Disbanding the union would be necessary because a union is not allowed to sue a party with which it is collectively bargaining.) If the...

Doc: Baby to miss only 'couple of games'

WALTHAM -- The Celtics received good news on Thursday when an MRI revealed that Glen Davis has only left knee patellar tendinitis and no major structural damage. The power forward, who has started at center many times this season in place of Shaquille O'Neal and Jermaine O'Neal, said he will need only a week to rest the injury before returning to action. 

 

Celtics coach Doc Rivers confirmed that assessment after practice on Thursday. 

 

"Nothing serious but he may be out for three, four or five days," Rivers said. "But it's nothing serious. He'll miss Friday [vs. Golden State]. I think he'll miss a couple of games. But overall, that's pretty good."

 

Davis, who injured the knee going up for a dunk with 49 seconds left in Wednesday's game against the Suns, said he's been playing with the soreness all season and initially aggravated the knee in Game 7 of the NBA finals last...

Jenks makes solid debut in Red Sox loss

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Bobby Jenks made his first appearance of the spring Thursday, giving up one hit and no runs over an inning in the Red Sox' 2-0 loss to the Phillies at City of Palms Park. It was the latest Jenks has waited to pitch in a spring training game, having taking an approach suggested by Red Sox' pitching coach Curt Young that included leading into the appearance with four bullpen sessions and two simulated games.

 

I made some really good pitches. I threw the ball for the most part exactly where I wanted to," Jenks said. "All in all, it was a really good day."

 

Jenks, who hopes to make about eight more spring training appearances before the beginning of the regular season, explained that he threw various forms of his fastballs, along with changeups, during his 12-pitch outing. The reliever's only blemish came when Philadelphia's Shane Victorino led off the fifth inning by hitting a double on a...

Celtics make Pavlovic signing official

The Celtics officially added Sasha Pavlovic to the roster, signing the free agent swingman. With Pavlovic on board the Celtics have the maximum 15 players on their roster. They still have room to maneuver with center Chris Johnson working on a 10-day contract. The 6-foot-8 Pavlovic has played in just 14 games this season, splitting his time between the Maveriks and Hornets. He offers insurance on the wing and playoff experience. He's likely to compete with Von Wafer for playing time behind Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Jeff Green.
