Just a quick rundown of all the injuries the Celtics are currently dealing with:
Shaquille O’Neal is nursing a sore achilles and is expected to be out through the All Star break.
Paul Pierce missed yesterday’s practice due to illness and is expected to play tonight against the Lakers.
Delonte West made it through a full practice yesterday in place of Pierce and is still on schedule to return after the All Star break.
Semih Erden remains out with an adductor strain and is likely to remain out through the break.
Marquis Daniels’ timetable is now looking like it will be around two months instead of the one month as originally thought.
Jermaine O’Neal decided to have surgery on his injured knee after rest was not making a difference and is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.
