Via the Herald’s Steve Bulpett:
The Celtics are sending Brian Scalabrine back to Boston for tests after he strained his neck in the win over the Nuggets in Denver last night.
GM Danny Ainge said the latest problem does not appear to be related to his two recent concussions and that Scalabrine felt fine last night and when the team arrived in Los Angeles. But the club is taking no chances.
I’m still in shock over the fact that Scal stayed in the game after getting knocked out. Make no mistake about it, he was out for second when he fell to floor. I don’t understand how the doctors/trainers let him play. Or how come none of his teammates waved them off the bench.
