Report: Pierce bangs knee in practice

Paul Pierce limped off the court during practice on Sunday in Waltham after banging his right knee into the leg of forward Shelden Williams, according to ESPN. The injury, according to head coach Doc Rivers, didn't appear serious. But it was enough to force him out of the final moments of practice. "It's starting to feel better, I hope he's fine," Rivers said following the session. The scary moment at the end of the practice comes as the team prepares to welcome back Rasheed Wallace to action in time for Monday's game against Dallas at TD Garden. Kevin Garnett is hopeful to return on Friday against Portland. For more, visit the Green Street blog.

Former Sox Offerman punches ump

Former Red Sox second baseman Jose Offerman lost his temper on the baseball field again, this time punching an umpire in a Dominican winter league game Saturday night. According to the Associated Press story, Offerman was taken to a police station to wait until the end of the game to see if the umpire, Daniel Rayburn, would press charges. Offerman, an All-Star for the Red Sox in 1999, had an incident in 2007 in which he charged the mound and swung a bat at a pitcher during a minor league game in Bridgeport, Conn.

Coakley calls Schilling a Yankee fan

Curt Schilling might not have entered the Senatorial race back in October, but he certainly is getting involved now. The presence of Schilling, who has put his support behind Republican candidate Scott Brown in the race also involving Democratic candidate Martha Coakley and Independent Joe Kennedy, was most recently brought to the forefront thanks to a comment by Coakley stating that Schilling is a Yankees fan. The exchange involving Coakley came in an interview with WBZ radio's Dan Rea, with the Massachusetts' Attorney General wanting to offer the reminder that Brown supporter, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, was a Yankees fan. Coakley then went on to mistakenly suggest that Schilling was also a fan of the Yanks before being corrected by Rea.
