However, the Boston Celtics are playing it safe with the Dancing Bear, having him rest the final two games of the NBA regular season so he'll be as healed and healthy as possible for the first round of the playoffs.
While Yabu probably won't have a very big role in Boston's postseason, he could be called upon for significant minutes in the third and early fourth quarters of games to spell Al Horford. So, this is probably a wise move - no point risking injury with iffy players in games the Celtics don't want to win anyway.
Mr. Multitasker Yabusele says he will not play the last two games of the regular season so that he can rest his sore left knee. He should be ready to play by Game 1 of the first round. pic.twitter.com/r5wtJ6Eh4u
