C's Jaylen Brown (hip) questionable for Game 5

On the brink of elimination at the hands of the defending NBA champs, the Celtics may have to try and survive Game 5 without one of their bright spots of this series in first-year pro Jaylen Brown. 

One night after recording nine points in 20 minutes of Game 4’s 112-99 loss at Quicken Loans Arena, the Celtics have announced Brown as questionable for Thursday’s game with a right hip pointer. 

An attempted answer to Cavaliers superstar LeBron James, who still torched the C’s for 34 points in 38 minutes despite his first half foul trouble behind a ridiculous 15-for-27 from the field, Brown joins Amir Johnson (shoulder) and Jae Crowder (groin).

But both Johnson and Crowder have been given the ‘probable’ tag by the Celtics versus the aforementioned ‘questionable...

Farrell on D&H: Players clear have their back
By: WEEI

John Farrell joined the Dale & Holley show for his weekly appearance on Wednesday afternoon and addressed concerns surrounding his job security. For the full interview, go to the Dale & Holley audio on demand page.

Farrell responded to Fox Sports insider Ken Rosenthal’s piece on Tuesday that indicated a managerial change could be imminent if the 23-21 Sox didn’t turn things around. Rosenthal also noted that dating back to 2013, some players have privately expressed concerns about Farrell’s inability to strongly defend his players when they come under media scrutiny.

“I think our team, our players are pretty clear that I do have their back, and I think there are plenty of examples to indicate as such,” Farrell said.

Hanley won't be playing 1B in near future
By: WEEI

John Farrell stopped by the Dale & Holley show for his weekly appearance on Wednesday afternoon before the Sox took for the second game of six-game homestand. For the full interview, go to the Dale & Holley audio on demand page.

With first baseman Sam Travis set to make his major league debut on Wednesday night against Rangers lefty Martin Perez, Farrell discussed Hanley Ramirez’ potential to play first moving forward.

“If it’s available to us, yeah,” Farrell said when asked whether he wants to see Hanley play first against American League ballclubs. “But I think at the same time, you know, if physically that’s creating some issues for him, what I don’t want to do is jeopardize and miss at-bats in the DH slot.”

Ramirez has only started one game at first all...

WR Hawkins announces he's signing with Pats

The Patriots have another receiver in town.

Former Browns and Bengals wide receiver Andrew Hawkins announced on Uninterrupted, he’s signing a deal with the Patriots. Hawkins said it wasn’t about the money and he wanted to join a contender. He also mentioned what a thrill it will be to work with Tom Brady.

Hawkins worked out with the Patriots last week and does most of his work in the slot.

The now 31-year-old had his best season in 2014 with the Browns when he had 63 catches for 824 yards and two touchdowns. Last year he hauled in 33 passes for 324 yards and three touchdowns. It was also the only season he played in all 16 games.

The Patriots don’t appear to have room on the roster for him, but Hawkins could be a player to bring in for training camp and have around in case any of the top receivers were to get injured.
