C's 'not worried' about Baby apology

Doc Rivers said before Wednesday's game that Glen Davis had yet to address his teammates and offer up an apology for Sunday's fight that led to a fractured right thumb, putting him out of action for at least six weeks. "No, not yet. He's got plenty of time," Rivers laughed. "We're not worried about that really. We had Cleveland last night, Charlotte tonight. That stuff will take care of itself." Rivers added that Davis, suspended by the team on Tuesday, was not in the building for Wednesday's home opener. Danny Ainge indicated on Tuesday that he expected Davis to apologize to the team sometime on Wednesday when the team returned for the home opener. For more, visit the Green Street blog.

Rivers on Scal: I think he's close

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said back-up forward Brian Scalabrine is getting close to returning to action. Scalabrine turned his right ankle when he inadvertently stepped on a camera at Madison Square Garden in the last week of the preseason. "I don't know the answer," said Rivers, who has been talking to team trainer Ed Lacerte about his condition. "I know he's going to dress tonight but he's not playing. I didn't ask Eddie. I knew he wasn't playing in the first two. I think he's close from the last talk I had with him."

Ainge: 'I wish Big Baby was sleeping the other night'

Boston Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge, who will be a weekly guest on WEEI, joined The Big Show to talk about a number of different topics, including the recent injury to Glen Davis. When Glenn Ordway asked about the team's new practice philosophies and sleep schedule, Ainge interjected with the witty response, "I wish Big Baby was sleeping the other night." Ainge went on to say that "you gotta give him credit. He came clean from the beginning...it's devastating to him. It's devastating to us." When asked about a possible suspension and/or fine, Ainge responded with "we want him around our team."
 

The Celtics GM liked what he saw in Tuesday's opening night win over the Cleveland Cavaliers and had hight praise for the bench. "It's the best bench we have had in the past few years. For certain," said Ainge.
