“He’s had some improvement, but I don’t know how much. I’m just going by what [team trainer] Eddie [Lacerte] and [team physician Dr. Brian] McKeon tell me. They thought he’s had some improvement.”
At times like these, I wish the Celtics had always been forthcoming about injuries. Alas, after an earlier report Shaq might be done for the year and Doc’s subsequent optimism (of sorts), we’re right back where we were before: when we see Shaq playing, we’ll believe it. Until then, regard every report, update and rumor with skepticism.
