Reporting live from The Garden where Doc Rivers wrapped us his pregame session with the media. A few key notes from the Q and A, where Doc addressed his future with the team:
- The Big Three will not play tonight
- Kendrick Perkins will also not play (knee tendinitis)
- Tony Allen, who is still suffering from a fever will also not play
By my math, that leaves the Celtics with 9 active players for tonight’s game, once you include new addition Oliver Lafayette.
The C’s other new signing, Tony Gaffney will not be able to debut in Green tonight, due to a holdup with paperwork from his club in Israel. He played with them last year, before suffering a foot injury. Bad news for the UMass alumni, who undoubtedly has plenty of friends and family in attendance.
My guess for a starting five
Plenty more on the way, including a few quotes from Doc Rivers regarding his coaching future.
