Kendrick Perkins is expected to miss the last three games of the Celtics' West Coast trip because of a left knee injury suffered in Tuesday night's victory against the Golden State Warriors.

A source told Perkins suffered a strained MCL. He's listed as day-to-day, but is expected to miss Thursday's game in Denver, Saturday's game in Los Angeles against the Clippers, and Monday's game in Utah.

Perkins left Tuesday’s game in the third quarter and said following the Celtics win that he was “real sore.”
Did the C's rush him back too soon? Maybe they wouldn't have had to play him so much so quickly if one of the O'Neals would actually suit up from time to time. Not good news. Celtics very much need to make a strong play for Troy Murphy.
