“I don’t have any idea,” Celtics general manager Danny Ainge said after watching the workout by O’Neal, who is attempting to recover from a sore right Achilles tendon. “It could be a week or two weeks.
“I watched him work out, and he’s starting to do things on the court. We’re just still not sure of when he’s going to come back.
If Shaq misses two more weeks, I should point out, he will have missed the entire remainder of the regular season. Terrific. Which reminds me: I’m pretty sure a Celtics player could be dying, literally dying, and the Celtics would try to convince us he was okay. “It’s just a sore right Achilles tendon, guys. Nothing to see here.”
