CSNNE.com reporter Sherrod Blakely tweeted earlier that he was joined on his flight to Cleveland by Brandon Bass, Mickael Pietrus, and Marquis Daniels. I inquired whether Bass will be playing in Tuesday night's Celtics-Cavs game, but he didn't respond. Either way, I think it's a good sign that Bass is traveling with the team, and hopefully he will be able to play.
However, Jermaine O'Neal stayed behind in Boston to have his hand examined by a specialist. No mention of Chris Wilcox, so it's unclear whether he will still be out with his groin injury. I am sure there will be injury updates closer to tip-off and we can get a feel for who is in and who is out for the Celtics' first game back after the All-Star break. DH 2/28/2012 01:13:00 AM Tweet
