Better to get this done now than during the regular season.

In the Celtics loss to Philadelphia Monday night, Darko Milicic aggravated a wrist injury. Tuesday he is getting a cortisone shot in right wrist and will miss a couple of Celtics preseason games, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that Milicic would miss tonight’s game against Brooklyn in addition to Thursday’s game on the road against the Nets in Brooklyn.

“It’ll be better after the shot,” Milicic said.

A couple of games now is nothing. The Celtics need to have both Darko and Kevin Garnett ready to go when the season starts, particularly with it looking like Chris Wilcox may not be ready to soak up some minutes.

Boston could use a lot of solid minutes out of Darko this season to help keep Garnett’s minutes down.

    Why is this guy even on the Celtics or even still in the NBA. I thought Ainge was smarter than that.

    That’s probably a plus for the C’s.

    @bozosforall, I agree, Darko is Turkish for “not very good”.
