Perkins rejoins starters with Shaq out

Shaquille O'Neal won't play Friday night against the Mavericks, and he may not play Sunday against the Magic either as he deals with his latest ailment -- an inflamed Achilles. As expected, Kendrick Perkins will return to the starting lineup just five games into his comeback from knee surgery. The move was inevitable, but the timetable is a little quick for Celtics coach Doc Rivers. "I wanted to wait a little bit, honestly," Rivers said. "It is what it is."

 

Rivers is hoping to have Shaq back by Thursday when the Celtics play the Lakers. Asked if Perkins was now the starter for good, Rivers wouldn't commit one way or another. "I don’t know yet," Rivers said. "We were probably going to start Perk after the All-Star break anyway, so we’ll see."

Kraft: Deal can be done in next week

Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft said Friday sounded an optimistic note about the uncertain labor situation on Friday, saying “a deal can get done in the next week.”

In an interview with the NFL Network, Kraft made it very clear who he believed was holding up a potential deal between the owners and the players.

“In my opinion, we could get a deal done in the next week if business people sat down on both sides and we tried to get the lawyers in the background,” Kraft said. “You just had a situation where we were sued that we didn’t get enough money from the networks. I know as chair of the Broadcast Committee, I’ve worked with our committee and the Commissioner, and we generated revenue at a very serious time in our country.

“We were just sued that we didn’t do a good enough job, so the players wind up paying $15 million in legal fees for something that is...

Falling snow, ice injures seven at Super Bowl

According to the Dallas Morning News, ice and snow melting off the roof of Cowboys Stadium -- home of the Super Bowl on Sunday -- injured seven people, with one of the individuals being described as having been critically injured. As a result, all but one entrance to the stadium was closed in order to protect workers and visitors.

 

Dallas has been struggling with the uncharacteristic ice and snow that has hit Dallas this week, leading to dozens of emergency room visits, terrible road conditions and the cancellation of several flights. Even so, the weather is expected to improve in advance of Sunday's game.

King on D&H: Goodell never went back to BB

During his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday morning, Sports Illustrated's Peter King talked about the profile piece he did on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell this week and the comments Goodell made about feeling "deceived" when Bill Belichick was not forthcoming with the press about the Patriots' role in Spygate.

 

King was asked why Goodell did not go back to Belichick and tell him his performance before the media was not what the commissioner expected.

 

Said King: “I asked him, I said, ‘Did you go back to him and did you ever contact him about it?’ And he said, ‘No.” And I think his whole thing was, at that point — and I’m interpreting here — his whole thing was at that point, the wounds are wide and the wounds are ugly. To exacerbate the wounds at this point is not something I want to do.

 

“Now, I’ve heard from...

Kraft: Pats lacked 'good game plan' vs. Jets

Patriots owner Robert Kraft, in remarks to reporters in Dallas, suggested that the Patriots were missing "a good game plan" in their season-ending loss to the Jets in the division round of the playoffs. He also expressed frustration with the interception that QB Tom Brady threw on a screen pass that killed the momentum of the first Patriots drive, as well as other areas in which his team failed to execute against its divisional rival.

 

"I don’t know, a good game plan,” Kraft told reporters in response to a question about what the Patriots were missing that day. "I mean, you have to hand it to the Jets. They came in and they did a good job. And actually, if you think about it, we drove down the field those first two drives. Tommy was unbelievable. He had (11) games without an interception and then threw that lazy interception. They go down and they miss the field goal and then we come drive right down again, and...
