So says A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN, citing anonymous sources.
The Celtics have a well-respected medical staff, so I’m just going to nod and assume no one would ever put Glen Davis in position he shouldn’t be in. I trust the team on this. The Celtics need all the size they can get, if only to foul Howard in the post.
Update (4:48 p.m.): You’ve undoubtedly seen this on ESPN.com by now, but Danny Ainge gave further updates on WEEI today:
• Davis is “likely” to play;
• Daniels is out; Brian Scalabrine will replace Daniels on the active roster. Wouldn’t it be something if Scal made a huge shot tonight?
• Rasheed Wallace is a game-time decision.
Got all that? Imagine being Doc Rivers right now. The game starts in less than four hours, and there’s a decent chance half of your big man rotation will be able to give you little/nothing. If that happens, do you spend more time going small, with Pierce (or, gulp, Scal) at the four? Do you start playing a subtler version of Hack-a-Howard earlier in the game with the bench guys?
