According to WEEI's Sean Grande, the Celtics starting center Jermaine O'Neal will not be playing tonight in the second game of the Celtics-Wizards double header. O'Neal left last night's game against the Wizards with a hamstring issue, so Doc Rivers will rest JO and start Greg Stiemsma in his place.

Back-up center Chris Wilcox will return to the Celtics bench after being out a few days with a shoulder injury.

    I just jinxed him lol:


  3. I wouldn't mind if Celtics just sat out JO for every 2nd night of back to backs. He's probably be out there if it was against a better team or if Wilcox wasn't coming back.


    that should be fine against the Wizards.

    ^^^ no we don't. he's a good player, but his attitude is bullshit and he wouldn't fit in whatsoever on the celtics. i figured JO would be rested on back to backs anyway, especially against weaker teams.

    JO has suffered from a mild hamstring injury last night. It was OK for him to return, yet the doctors decided to rest him just because. It's nothing serious.

  8. JR says:

    Agree shelbyl. Smart teams will rest their vets periodically during this compressed season. I expect KG to get some games of on the back ends of back to backs as well.
