Celtics catch a break when they learn Paul Pierce doesn't have one

Initial fears that Boston's star forward had suffered a broken foot prove unfounded. The team says it's only a sprain and lists him as day-to-day.

February 03, 2010

The Boston Celtics said a review by their medical staff determined Paul Pierce has a sprained left foot. He is listed as day-to-day.

Reports earlier Tuesday indicated Pierce might have broken his foot Monday at Washington, which would've idled him several weeks.

Del Harris resigns

Former Lakers coach Del Harris resigned as an assistant with the New Jersey Nets. Harris, 72, joined the team in late November after General Manager Kiki Vandeweghe was named interim coach following the firing of Lawrence Frank after the Nets' 0-17 start.

Crittenton won't contest

Javaris Crittenton said he won't contest his suspension for bringing a gun into the Washington Wizards locker room. The NBA suspended him and star guard Gilbert Arenas for the season.

Etc.

The Cleveland Cavaliers signed guard Cedric Jackson to a second 10-day contract. . . . Bulls guard Derrick Rose was excused from the rookie challenge at All-Star weekend and will be replaced by Golden State's Anthony Morrow.
