West out, Pierce in for Celtics

Paul Pierce, who has battled hand and foot injuries is in the Celtics starting lineup to play the Nets, while Delonte West will miss at least one more game after re-injuring his wrist in practice Tuesday. "He just wasn’t ready," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said of West. "It was just a freak injury unfortunately. There was no other damage. It just set him back." 

 

Rivers is hopeful that West will be back in time for the start of the team's West Coast trip next Tuesday in Golden State. "I’m hoping Delonte and maybe Shaq [will be back], but definitely Delonte," Rivers said.

Ainge: C's 'fielding calls' on possible trades

During his weekly appearance on the The Big Show, Celtics president Danny Ainge was asked for an update on the status of Delonte West. The guard was expected to make his return on Wednesday night vs. the Nets after missing the last 38 games with a broken right wrist, but he re-injured the wrist at practice on Tuesday.

 

"Delonte was hoping to play tonight, but he had a little bit of a setback," said Ainge. "He jammed his wrist yesterday, and he just has some pain in it. We're just not going to take a chance. We are probably going to hold him out him out after the break, or definitely hold him out until after the [All-Star] break."

 

The MRI taken Paul Pierce’s left foot and ankle earlier in the week came back negative. Ainge was asked if he thought it would benefit Pierce to skip this weekend's All-Star Game in order to rest.

 

"I think it [All-Star Game] is rest," said...

Seymour now highest-paid defensive player
By: DJ Bean

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, former Patriots defensive lineman Richard Seymour has agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Raiders worth as much as $30 million. The deal, which contains $22.5 million in guaranteed money, makes him the highest-paid defensive player in football.

 

Seymour was franchised for the 2010-11 season, earning $12.398 million in his second season in Oakland.

 

Selected by the Patriots with the sixth overall pick of the 2001 draft, Seymour played eight seasons in New England and won three Super Bowl titles. He was traded to the Raiders for a 2011 first-round pick prior to the 2009-10 season.

Chara: Prior teammate Kelly 'great addition'
By: DJ Bean

 

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins will see a new face in their lineup when Chris Kelly, acquired in a trade with Ottawa Tuesday night, joins the team for either Thursday or Friday's game. While Kelly will have nearly an entire Bruins dressing room full of new teammates, he will be reunited with B's captain Zdeno Chara, with whom he played in Ottawa in the 2003-04 and 2005-06 seasons. Chara had high praise for is former teammate and the move that the team made to acquire him. 

 

"It's a great addition. He's a hard-working player, a smart player," Chara said following Wednesday's practice. "He always plays his role well and is going to give us more depth in the middle and the experience he has. I think it's a great addition.

 

"He's always a guy that you can rely on to get the job done. He's a very smart player, and he's always thinking on the ice before he does anything."

Milbury on D&H: Kelly move 'a wise decision'

Mike Milbury of NESN and NBC Sports made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday to talk Bruins and NHL news.

 

Milbury indicated he likes the Bruins' acquisition of Chris Kelly from the Senators. "I think the Bruins have made a wise decision to add to their depth and toughness," he said. "In both cases, you can't get enough of it, particularly when it comes time for playoff time."

 

The Bruins reportedly have interest in Maple Leafs defenseman Tomas Kaberle. "He's a quiet player," Milbury said. "He's efficient, he's not a physical force, doesn't have a big shot, moves it pretty well from the point. I didn't mean to be too critical of him the last time we spoke. If I was, I stand somewhat corrected."

 

Added Milbury: "This is a player that's going to need to step it up in terms of intensity and commitment level if he does come to Boston....
