According to another big man who made his first start since early November on Sunday night, Shaquille O'Neal will be fine and might even play Tuesday against the 76ers at TD Garden. Shaq strained his right calf and limped badly off the court with 11:11 remaining in the second quarter.
“He told me he's OK." said Jermaine O'Neal, who missed more than half the season himself after having his left knee scoped. "He seemed to be in good spirits when he left, and I think he may be out there on Tuesday, but we’ll see. He was laughing and joking, I think it was more of a scare for the guys on the team and the fans of the Celtics.
"But, I think getting some practice time, 'cause he hasn’t had the ability to practice, it was kind of on the fly, he hasn’t been able to test it. And today he kind of tweaked it, hopefully for us we can get him back sooner because he got out to a great start today.”
The Celtics will practice on Monday, when the team should know more about the health of Shaq, who was limited to six minutes in Sunday's 101-90 win over the Pistons at TD Garden.
