Boston Celtics forward-center Chris Wilcox will miss a month because of an ulnar collateral ligament sprain in his right thumb, coach Doc Rivers said, according to ESPN.com. Wilcox, 30, who played on Maryland's 2001-02 national championship team, injured his thumb Tuesday against the Bulls and had sat out the past two games. "Chris is out; he's out for a while," Rivers said Sunday. "I don't know how long, but the first report I got was three to four weeks. " Wilcox is averaging 4.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 13.3¿minutes per game.

Lonise Bias arrives alone for the anti-drug luncheon, a tall, strong, self-possessed woman, striking in a blue linen suit as she crosses the flagstones of the Hyatt Regency atrium.You can see her son, Lenny, in her youthful stride, her athletic carriage, in the bones of her face, and then in the wide sweep of her arms as she makes her impassioned plea against the drugs that killed her son.And for a moment you can almost see the long reach of his fine, young body stretching once again for the basket in overtime against North Carolina at the Cole Field House.

With the NBA conference finals raging on, it's not surprising that several Ravens players have been monitoring the 2-2 series split between the San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the West and between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics in the East. Quarterback Joe Flacco said he thinks the Spurs and Heat will advance to the NBA finals. His pick to eventually win the championship? “The Spurs. They were obviously really, really hot, and they're playing a good team with [Oklahoma City forward]

A person with knowledge of the negotiations says the Celtics are making progress on a deal that would bring Shaquille O'Neal to Boston. Earlier Tuesday, the four-time NBA champion said he will be in the league next season and would rather retire than play internationally. The 38-year-old O'Neal spent last season with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He has struggled to find a contract from a team that can guarantee him playing time, enough money and a chance for one more championship.

Who dug you guys up? A funny thing happened to the Boston Celtics on the way to their eternal rest. Just before the funeral procession reached the cemetery, someone looked inside the hearse and found the decedent was alive. Now it's like one of those New Orleans funerals with the band breaking out into Dixieland and everyone strutting their way home — but with the guests of honor in the lead. I actually love the Celtics, although I'm not sure it shows, judging by some of my e-mail from New England.

The big showdown in the new Boston Garden yesterday ended up being the entire first round of the NBA playoffs in a nutshell. Game 7 of the Boston Celtics vs. Atlanta Hawks was a dud. What happened? The playoffs have rarely been this eagerly anticipated; they weren't going to sneak up on anybody the way the past two have. After a regular season some called the best in league history, with all eight Western Conference qualifiers winning at least 50 games and with every seed up for grabs going into the final five days, this year's playoffs were going to pick up where the regular season left off, and jump up and grab everybody from the opening tip of the very first game.

For sport fans outside of New England who have had a bellyful of the Red Sox and Patriots, there's some bad news: The Celtics are pretty good, too. Of course, they have been chugging along with the NBA's best record all season, so that's not exactly a news flash. But Boston's raid through Texas this week unequivocally served notice that the Celts are the clear favorite to win the NBA championship. When Boston journeyed into the so-called Texas Triangle, it was San Antonio, Houston and Dallas - three teams that have combined to win two-thirds of their games - who disappeared.

There are those hard-core conspiracy theorists who believe that commissioner David Stern works the NBA like a puppeteer, allegedly manipulating results to the league's best interests. Even if that's true, not even the late Jim Henson could have worked things this well to get this wacky a result heading into the NBA playoffs, which open today. Handicapping the field in the Eastern Conference alone, where none of the top three seeds - the New Jersey Nets, Detroit Pistons and Boston Celtics - were even in the playoffs last year, will require a divine skill.

Other kids might have dreamed of being like Mike, but Juan wanted to be like Reggie, the neighborhood kid who went on to Boston Celtics fame. And now Jamal wants to be like Juan. The University of Maryland's celebrated shooting guard, Juan Dixon, is a big part of the reason young basketball players run drills in a little cinder-block gym at Cecil-Kirk Recreation Center. Dixon, who led the Terrapins to their first national championship Monday in Atlanta, got his start playing on the same polished hardwood where seventh-grade shooting guard Jamal Hood practiced yesterday.
