Update: The prognosis is a sore left knee for Perk. His status is day to day.
Update #2: He’s out Sunday, too.
An update from the TD Garden, where Kendrick Perkins will be inactive tonight. No word yet on the reason, Head Coach Doc Rivers did not comment on the move in his pregame media availability period. Rasheed Wallace will start in his place.
Quick Analysis: Common sense here says Perk is sitting tonight against an inferior opponent as a way to just give him rest when the team doesn’t need him. In Utah earlier this week, it was noticeable how much he was struggling with his lift, so this could be some kind of foot/leg injury the team is being cautious with.
More updates on Perk’s condition from The Garden as the situation develops.
