Shaq Will Not Play vs. Bobcats Tonight

The C’s depth will be tested once again tonight as veteran center Shaquille O’Neal will sit out his second straight game to rest a lingering sore calf injury. Here’s the report from the A Sherrod Blakely from CSNNE.COM down in Charlotte:

When Boston’s medical staff decided that O’Neal would not play in the C’s 102-101 win at Philadelphia on Thursday, the decision was made then to sit him out for tonight’s game.

“He should be able to play by the New York game (on Wednesday),” Rivers said.

 O’Neal wants to play, but the Big fella understands the big picture here in Boston.

“That’s considerate of them,” O’Neal said of holding him out. “We all have the same vision ahead of us. We’re doing good right now. It gives Semih a chance to get some burn (playing time), J.O. comes back soon. Further down the road, we’ll have our whole team back.”

O’Neal has said previously that he would take pain killers in order to play now, but the C’s have resisted the need for a quick-fix and have instead focused on him rehabilitating his injuries with time and rest.

“They’re saying, ‘get it right,'” O’Neal said. “That’s very commendable of the Celtics organization to say, ‘get it right.’ I’ll take these next couple of days off just try and get it right.”

    Good. They should be able to handle the bobkitties without him, and they'll most definitely need him for the playoffs. Absolutely need his rebounding and high-efficiency scoring.

    The Bobcats seems to always play the Celtics hard. Having Shaq would have been good tonight, but it is better for him to rest the knee. Even with the added depth to the Bigs, we are scary thin right now up front. Erden, KG, Big Baby, then who? Hopefully no one gets in foul trouble, Steven Jackson can light it up any night.
