Following their loss in Cleveland on Tuesday, the Raptors announced that Chris Bosh has a "maxilla and nasal fracture to the right side of his face."Man Eastern Conference stars are falling by the wayside quick. Maybe the Bogut and Bosh injuries will convince Danny and Doc to rest the starting 5 before the playoffs. Personally I think Perkins's knee isn't right, Rondo could use some rest, and both Ray and Paul have shown this year they play great after a week or so off. KG ironically seems to be the one guy who the more he plays this year the healthier he seems to be getting. I know everyone wants the #3 seed, but what good will the #3 seed be if we have at best a fatigued team heading into the playoffs and at worst an injured team?
Bosh will not travel with the team. He will be kept overnight in the hospital for additional observation.
The Celtics started the season 23-5 when our team was fresh. At their age maybe 28 games is the most they can go at that level. Ironically the most games they would have to play in the playoffs is 28. Hmm... Get the starting 5 some rest and let's come out strong in the 2nd season. JR 4/07/2010 02:47:00 AM Tweet Edit
