Word from Celtics camp is that injured center Shaquille O’Neal will make his return to game action on Wednesday night when the Los Angeles Clippers and “The Blake Show” come to the TD Bank North Garden to face off against the Boston Celtics.
Shaq has been sidelined since February 1st with an achilles injury and has been lobbying for a return to game action this weekend. The Celtics have decided to keep Shaq out allowing him to practice a few more times and to avoid traveling to Milwaukee for Sunday night’s game against the Bucks.
Seems like we have been here a time or two with Shaq and the timetable eventually gets pushed back. The Celtics need Shaq to be at 100% in order to provide them with the inside help they desperately need at the moment. Shaq will help the Celtics most by playing 15-20 minutes per game whilst rebounding and creating a fearsome inside presence.
