Garnett leaves game with leg injury

Update: The Celtics are saying that the injury to Kevin Garnett is related to a leg muscle, possibly in his calf, and is not a knee injury. Garnett hurt himself going up for a dunk late in the first quarter against the Pistons and went to the locker room in obvious pain. He did not return to the game. X-rays came back negative and Garnett will undergo an MRI Thursday. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said after the game that Garnett would likely miss a few games, but the injury does not appear to be serious.


The play was eerily reminiscent of the one that ended his 2009 season against Utah and led to offseason surgery. As with that play there was no contact. Garnett hobbled back up the court and had to intentionally foul Tayshaun Prince to stop the game. He then fell to the ground and pounded the floor in frustration.

Mankins: 'Not playing for a contract'

FOXBORO -- Despite earning his third Pro Bowl berth on Tuesday night, Logan Mankins says he's not trying to prove a point by playing extra hard this season. 


"I don't know if you ever watched any of our games, but I tend to play hard the majority of the time so I don't think I'm playing for a contract right now," said Mankins, who missed training camp and the first half of the season because of a contract dispute before reporting prior to the team's Nov. 7 game in Cleveland. He has been in Pro Bowl form ever since. Bill Belichick hailed Mankins as a lineman of "superior toughness."


"It means a lot," added Mankins. "I'd hate to be known as a wimp or a dummy so I'll take the first one, that's a lot better. It's nice. That's not why we play games, to make Pro Bowls. We play to win games so if it happens, it happens and you're happy about it. If you never make one, that's part of the...

Welker wins Ed Block Courage award

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker was selected by his Patriots teammates as the recipient of the 2010 Ed Block Courage Award, annually voted to the player who best exemplifies the principles of courage and sportsmanship while also serving as a source of inspiration.


Welker tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee in the 2009 season finale in Houston, but had reconstructive surgery and returned from his injury well ahead of expectations. He was back in the starting lineup for the season-opener in 2010, and he heads into the 2010 season-finale with a team-leading 86 receptions for 848 yards with seven touchdowns. Welker’s 86 catches currently rank fourth in the NFL. Welker, who had three-straight 100-catch seasons from 2007-09, is expected to become the first Patriots player to lead the team in receptions in four straight seasons.


Welker and award winners from the 31 other NFL teams will be honored at the 33rd Annual Ed Block...
