West is being listed as day-to-day after spraining his right ankle Monday in Washington. The fact it’s the same ankle he hurt in February makes this a bit more of a concern, but West is insisting he’ll be all right.
Danny Ainge admitted the health of West and Shaq is a concern, but not his biggest.
“My concerns going into the playoffs are still how well our big four are going to play,” Ainge said. “No. 2 is the health of everyone, from Shaquille and Delonte (West) to everyone. But I think that when KG (Kevin Garnett) and Ray (Allen) and Paul (Pierce) and (Rajon) Rondo play well, we win. When three out of the four play well, we win.”
Nobody has as much riding on this postseason as Ainge does. If the Celtics fall before reaching the Finals, Ainge should move out West, change his phone number and share his new address with nobody. But if they can somehow piece this broken puzzle back together, he’s redeemed.
