Celtics Announce Shaq Will Not Play Game 1

A couple minutes ago The Boston Celtics announced that Shaq will be ready for the Playoffs but won't be ready for tomorrow's series opener against The Knicks.

This shouldn't be a huge hit to Boston because The Knicks really don't have anyone down low that will potentially dominate. Shaq will defenitely be needed for the later rounds, but i have to agree with Boston about taking it easy. If you force Shaq back for games where he's not needed you may end up without him when you need him.
