    Desperate times call for desperate measures. And right now there is no desperate measure quite like Shaquille O’Neal. Boston coach Doc Rivers told the media today that Shaq would be a go in Game 3 Saturday at the Boston Garden, tweets A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England. Rivers also said that the rest of…

    Shaquille O’Neal practiced with the Boston Celtics Thursday and Friday. He’ll play against the Miami Heat. At some point in the series. Probably. Yes, I know, pretty vague. But that’s what the Celtics have left us with. CSN New England gives us the quotes from Doc Rivers himself. “He just did a little bit yesterday,”…

  3. Shaq to practice on Friday, and then…

    Finally there are no more delays, no more reasons to put it off, Shaquille O’Neal is going to practice with the Boston Celtics on Friday, according to a tweet from Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe. Two days before the first game against the Heat. And then…. Depends on how it goes. Doc Rivers was…

  4. Shaq will not practice Wednesday, Thursday. Will he play against Heat?

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Now we return to Shaq Watch 2011… and still no sign of the big man. He did not practice Wednesday and will not Thursday according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England on twitter. That does leave open the chance that he practices on Friday and will be ready to go Sunday, but do…

  5. No Shaq in Game 4 for Celtics

    Apr 24, 2011, 9:47 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    They clearly don’t need him against New York — Boston is up 3-0 in the series — but the plans to have Shaquille O’Neal back continues to be pushed back. Doc Rivers has ruled Shaq out for Game 4 at Madison Square Garden Sunday, according to ESPN Boston. “He’s not playing [Sunday],” said Rivers. “We…

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game One

    UPDATE 3:42 pm: From the Department of Redundancy Department, we have an update on our update: Shaq traveled with the team to New York, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of CSN New England. Based on what Doc Rivers said before, that makes Shaq questionable for Game 4 on Easter Sunday. Which is a lot better…

    UPDATE 2:09 pm: As one would expect, Celtics coach Doc Rivers shot down the report saying Shaquille O’Neal is done for the playoffs. Our man A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England went to the source and talked to Rivers: I know that’s not true,” Rivers told CSNNE.com. “He’s going to play. I just don’t…

  8. Shaq out “indefinitely” for Boston

    Apr 16, 2011, 2:03 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    One of the keys to Boston being in this in June — one of the reasons that Kendrick Perkins could be traded — was that Shaquille O’Neal could do the job in the middle. The Celtics will not have Shaq for game one against New York and maybe longer, Doc Rivers and Danny Ainge told…

  9. Delonte West injured again, Shaq set for playoffs return

    Apr 12, 2011, 11:41 AM EST

    Delonte West, Rajon Rondo

    Is there a M*A*S*H* unit that follows the Celtics around? It just seems it would be cost efficient at this point. Boston picked up another injury Monday, but just one so it may be under their daily quota. This time it was Delonte West spraining his ankle, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSN New England.…

  10. “Just wait until Shaq gets back” is legitimate argument for Boston

    Apr 9, 2011, 5:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    The Chicago Bulls made their statement Thursday. Right now, the Bulls are the better team. If Thursday had been Game 1 of a seven-game series the Celtics would be in trouble. After the game, Kevin Garnett talked about Boston having another gear for the playoffs. Their fans are counting on that. That those days off…

  11. Shaq could return to Celtics Friday; Krstic back Tuesday

    Apr 4, 2011, 7:29 PM EST

    Shaq injured

    It’s just a calf strain. It’s not the Achilles that kept Shaquille O’Neil out for more than month. What happened to Shaq on Sunday was just a calf strain. Everyone kept saying that (especially Celtics fans). Still, Celtics players were a little down. Then came good news from Doc Rivers today that Shaq could be…

  12. So when is it for Shaq? Ainge says he could pay Sunday.

    Mar 31, 2011, 8:55 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    Earlier today, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Shaquille O’Neal might not really be ready to go for a while and his recovery could bleed into the playoffs.

    Okay Boston fans, now you can start to really worry. Doc Rivers pushed the timeline back for Shaq’s return from an Achilles tendon injury again, this time maybe as far back as the start of the playoffs, friend of the site A.

  14. Report: Shaq to return to Celtics by April 1. No fooling.

    Boston just needs to get everyone back and healthy for the playoffs, then everything will be just fine. That’s the mantra, so say it with me. Everyone back and healthy for the playoffs. But they could use to get their big men back a little before that. Just to remember what everybody looks like, work…

  15. Shaq says he’s “85 percent,” could be back next week

    Danny Ainge has placed a big bet on Shaquille O’Neal. He went from the summer insurance plan to the guy who should be the starting center for the Celtics in the playoffs. If he’s healthy. The Celtics yesterday decided to stop guessing when he might be back, but Shaq himself told ESPNBoston — at his…
