VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- Vancouver Whitecaps striker Darren Mattocks burned his upper right arm and shoulder while making dinner and is being treated at a hospital. The MLS team said in a statement the accident happened Sunday but did not say how the 21-year-old Jamaican forward burned himself. The team added Tuesday that it will have a better sense of his progress later in the week but expects a "complete recovery in due time." Coach Martin Rennie says Mattocks is "handling everything well and remains in good spirits." Mattocks joined the team in January after being taken second overall in the MLS SuperDraft.

Report: Celtics 'expected' to talk to Mavs about deal for Bogut

The Celtics reportedly are "expected" to talk to the Mavericks about a deal for Andrew Bogut, according to scout.com, but negotiations would be "dependent on what bigger move Boston can make".

Bogut, 32, is in the final year of his contract. The 7-foot center, while healthy, has played in only 26 games this year and is averaging just three points a game. But he's also averaging 8.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes, and rebounding has been one of the Celtics' big areas of weakness this year. The C's rank 27th in the league in reboundinh, and 26th in defensive rebounding.

According to scout.com, the Mavs would part with Bogut for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's first-round draft choices.
