The Celtics announced via Twitter that center Jermaine O'Neal has returned to Boston, rather than travel to Memphis for the last game on the Celtics four-game road trip. O'Neal sat out Thursday's game against the Heat with a left knee injury and he sought a second opinion in Miami while the team was there.
There was little hope that he would be able to play Saturday against the Grizzlies, and that leaves the Celtics with 11 healthy players while Delonte West sits out the final game of his 10-game suspension. O'Neal has been hampered by a number of injuries -- hamstring, wrist -- but the knee injury seems like a more significant concern.

Patriots left tackle joined The Big Show to talk about this week's matchup with the Steelers and also take one last look back at what went wrong against the Browns. Light called the Steelers "a great test for our offense," and noted that Troy Polamalu, particularly stands out.
"Troy Polamalu is a dynamic player at his position and the things he does in that defense," Light said. "He's fun to watch. You hope you don't watch him make too many big plays when you're playing against him. They've got a lot of good players. Hats off to them and their style and how they play it. It's a great test for out offense."
Light said there isn't any great mystery when it comes to playing the Steelers. "It's not like the Steelers have 30 different packages that they throw out there on the field," he said. "They pretty much play their defense. For the most part you're going to see a 3-4...
On a conference call with beat writers, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein said that while the team is planning for any number of contingencies this offseason, its preferred course of action would be to bring back Adrian Beltre to play third base and Victor Martinez to continue to catch.
Beltre was just honored with a Silver Slugger Award as the top hitting third baseman in the American League after hitting .321 with a .919 OPS, 28 homers and 102 RBI. Martinez, in his season and a half with the Sox, hit .313 with an .865 OPS, 28 homers and 120 RBI in 183 games.
“Our first choice for our third baseman in 2011 and beyond would be to bring back Adrian Beltre,” said Epstein. “Victor would certainly be our first choice to be our 2011 catcher and beyond. He did an outstanding job for us in the year and a half he was here. … I know it’s been portrayed in the media a little bit as if we haven’t...
If you were wondering if Paul Pierce's now infamous tweet: 'It's been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis' had any effect on the Miami Heat, it did. Heat forward Udonis Haslem described Pierce as "studio gangster" after Miami's practice Friday. The Celtics beat the Heat 112-107 Thursday night, their second win over Miami in as many tries.
