Looks like Leon’s knee injury is a bit worse than we thought. They’re calling it a sprain and say Powe will be out 2-3 weeks.
Ray Allen is definitely out for tonight’s game. Stephon Marbury will start alongside Rajon Rondo whose most recent ankle sprain was not that severe.
Big Baby is back. He’s starting at power forward.
The Celtics are catching a break – Miami is without some dude named Dwyane Wade. He’s nursing a sore hip.
And this from Doc Rivers:
“We’ve earned the record that we have right now,” said Rivers. “We’re tied for the second seed in the East. We’re not going to catch Cleveland…the bottom line is these aren’t injuries where guys are not going to come back. We have time to put the pieces together.”
