Doc: Sheed back Mon., KG to follow

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he is 'hopeful' that Rasheed Wallace can return from a sore left forefoot next Monday when the team hosts Dallas at TD Garden.

Francona: No quick Lowell solution

Speaking before the Boston baseball writers' dinner tonight, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said he doesn't expect any quick solution to the Mike Lowell situation on his roster. "I don't think that's possible," Francona said of Lowell, who recently had surgery on his right thumb. "He just had surgery. He's not going to pick up a bat until probably the second week of February. He's going to have to take some time and get himself into playing shape. You're talking about a [35]-year-old third baseman with a lot of mileage. We wouldn't play him nine innings anyway. We're not going to do that. We'll take good care of him. He's a guy that deserves respect. It's easy to give him respect, he's earned it. We love him." Meanwhile, Francona said news of Daisuke Matsuzaka's leg injury while training during for last year's WBC was 'old news' and the team is moving on. For more, including audio highlights, visit the...

Pees: I'm not fired

Dean Pees issued a statement late Thursday evening clarifying his situation. Pees, who had been the Patriots defensive coordinator the last four seasons and with the team as an assistant for the last six years, had reportedly been fired by the franchise Thursday afternoon. However, Pees, in a statement issued by the team, said that wasn't the case. “My contract with the New England Patriots will expire in a couple of weeks and I have informed Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick that I will not seek to renew it,” he wrote. “I enjoyed my time in New England, but feel this is the right time to pursue other opportunities. I had the privilege of working with some great coaches and great players over the past six seasons and leave the Patriots with some wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. In addition to the players and coaching staff, I want to thank the Kraft family, the media and the fans for all of their support.” For more Patriots news...
