The timetable (3-6 weeks) for return on the Kyrie Irving injury now allows the Celtics to sign a 16th player to a 10-Day Contract. Boston has met the criteria by having four players (Irving, Gordon Hayward, Daniel Theis and Marcus Smart) miss three consecutive games to injury and each player unable to perform playing services due to injury or illness for a minimum of two weeks.

With infielder Deven Marrero headed to the Diamondbacks for player to be named or cash, Brock Holt would seem to have cemented a spot on Red Sox roster. Marrero, competing with Holt for a utility job, was out of options and couldn't be sent to the minors without clearing waivers. Not surprising that Arizona would be interested. Assistant GM Amiel Sawdaye was Red Sox's amateur scouting director when Boston drafted Marrero in first round in 2012. Dbacks GM Mike Hazen was Red Sox assistant GM at the time.

Brad Stevens already had a solid case for Coach of the Year by simply keeping Boston near top of the East despite all the team's injuries this year. But this week Boston beat two of the top four teams in the West with a injury-ravaged roster in which half of the bodies available to Stevens are rookies. Few coaches get more out of what's available to them than Stevens.
