By no idea, Ainge meant Sunday or Tuesday
"I was just with Shaq, we were just working out down in Waltham," Ainge told WEEI. "Shaq is either going to play Sunday or Tuesday. ... 'Bleed into the playoffs' I think is something different than he's not going to play until the playoffs. But it looks like he's ready to go Sunday or Tuesday."
So, I guess Shaq will be back before the playoffs. The more time the two O'Neals are both suiting up together the better. Though, I wouldn't be surprised at all if Shaq isn't playing on the aforementioned days.
