Now it’s to the point where the Celtics have no idea when the 7-foot-1 center, who turned 39 years old today, will return to action.
When asked about O’Neal and a likely return date, Celtics head coach Doc Rivers acknowledged he had no idea.
“He (O’Neal) worked out with us the other day,” Rivers said. “Some of the pain returned.”
Rivers spoke with Ed Lacerte, the team’s head trainer.
“Eddie just said don’t expect him anytime soon,” Rivers said.
In the report, A. Sherrod Blakely also noted, “Jermaine O’Neal (left knee surgery) is making progress, but there’s [no] telling when he’ll be back or how effective he’ll be upon returning to the court.”
