Paul Pierce (shoulder) is a game time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.
The Nets have seen Pierce back in action since suffering the shoulder injury, so they're going to let him make the call. If he wants to play Tuesday, he will, but he probably won't log his usual minutes.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Yankees grant RHP Scott Baker his unconditional release.
Baker was enjoying a serviceable career when he was with the Twins, but Tommy John surgery in 2012 derailed his career. He has yet to return to that form he exhibited when he was a starter in Minnesota and the Yankees have released the 33-year old. Baker could get signed by a team who believes that they can jump start his spiraling career. Analysis: Colby Conway
