Danny on Shaq's return: "I don't have any idea"

Boston Herald
As his teammates practiced at the AT&T Center yesterday, Shaquille O’Neal was at the Celtics practice facility in Waltham going through a private workout that included running and shooting.

But whether he returns for a regular-season game or waits until the playoffs is anyone’s guess.

“I don’t have any idea,” Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said after watching the workout by O’Neal, who is attempting to recover from a sore right Achilles tendon. “It could be a week or two weeks.

“I watched him work out, and he’s starting to do things on the court. We’re just still not sure of when he’s going to come back.
39 years old + 400 pounds + foot problems = probably not a good idea to trade your starting center.
