Reports are finally coming in on Twitter from the Celtics practice. Nate was out on the floor when the curtains opened but reports are that he didn't practice. However they are saying that he looks good and should be good to go for Sunday's game vs the Heat. That's good news for the Celtics depleted bench.
The good news stops there, however. The sorta good news is that Delonte put in his second full practice coming back from the wrist injury. He isn't expected to play vs the Heat but could put in an appearance Wednesday vs the Nets to get a little run before the All Star break.
The rest of the news wasn't good at all. Semih and Shaq and of course, Jermaine will all be out vs the Heat also. But, the word out of practice is that the Shaq and Semih's injuries are not responding well to treatment and they could be out beyond the break. We need to get at least one back up center back so hopefully one of them will heal quicker and get back after the break.
Chris Forsberg, as always, is right on top of things with video of Rondo putting up jumpers after practice. Hopefully he puts in a LOT of work on his jumper.
And, in the taking out the trash section, here are some words from Paul and Ray about the 3 point contest from the Celtics Twitter.
Ray jokingly says: "Paul said I have no shot in the 3-Point contest." Paul's response, with stern look: "No shot. I'm not smiling either."It's going to be fun!!! FLCeltsFan 2/12/2011 02:41:00 PM Tweet
