Injuries to some of the best players on the league’s best teams are occurring with alarming frequency. Last night, Chris Paul limped off the court with a strained groin while the Magic’s Jameer Nelson dislocated his right shoulder. MRIs scheduled for later today will reveal the scope of the damage (Might Rondo get the All-Star call to replace Jameer?). And the Lakers have lost Andrew Bynum for up to 12 weeks with a torn MCL.
Fortunately for us, the Celtics are only dealing with the flu. KG is definitely out for tonight’s game against Philly.
“We didn’t have to tell him,” Rivers said. “He’s sick still. He’s not well enough to play. We’re hoping on Wednesday when we come back we can have a practice and get him up and down the floor, and he can play Thursday and Friday. But if he’s not feeling great by (tomorrow), then he won’t play in those games either.”
TA is also sick. While he didn’t practice yesterday, he did fly to Philly with the team. Scal (post concussion issues) is also out.
For the record, I’ve not had my flu shot this winter. That thing hurts. Watching my 4-year-old son get his was enough pain for me.
