Comeback pain: Thomas struggles in return

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas admitted before Wednesday's game that he was worried about his first fall and so it seemed to take a minute for him to react when he hit the parquet floor hard in the final minutes of the first half while absorbing a charge from former teammate Goran Dragic. And then came the audible groan as Thomas reached for the bruised lower back that had sidelined him the previous eight games, then rolled onto his side in obvious discomfort.

Isaiah Thomas on track to return vs. Heat

NEW YORK -- Isaiah Thomas missed his eighth straight game on Monday night in Brooklyn, but Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens said the injured guard is "as close to probable as it gets" for Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat. That sets the table for Thomas to potentially return against the team he suffered a bruised back against on March 9 when he hit the floor hard after a late-game drive to the basket. After enduring some abnormal swelling, Thomas has recently resumed basketball activities and Stevens sounded optimistic about his chances to play on Wednesday.

NEW YORK -- Fresh off the second triple-double of his career -- both coming in the past month's span -- Boston Celtics swingman Evan Turner showed up to his postgame chat with reporters on Monday night wearing an impossible-to-miss gold grill over his bottom teeth. Turner, who put up 19 points, 12 assists, and 10 rebounds over 40 minutes while leading Boston to a 110-91 triumph over the Brooklyn Nets, raved about Boston's response from a sluggish start and his teammates' ability to make him look good by knocking down shots before the conversation inevitably swung to his dental bling.
