The Globe has this update from the morning shoot around:
Celtics president Danny Ainge was at the team’s practice facility in Waltham during the team’s shootaround today and received a warm greeting from the players.
While Ainge was not available for comment, coach Doc Rivers said Ainge might attend Game 2 of the Celtics’ first-round series against the Bulls tonight.
Ainge suffered a minor heart attack last Thursday and wasn’t allowed to watch the Celtics’ Game 1 loss Saturday from his hospital room. He was released from the hospital last night.
Even though he said he wouldn’t speak about KG anymore, Doc had this to say:
While Rivers still seemed doubtful, he did hint there was a slight chance that injured Celtics forward Kevin Garnett could return to action in this postseason. Garnett, however, seemed a long way away as he walked with a noticeable limp at shootaround this morning.
“If he gets healthy, he gets healthy,” Rivers said. “But I don’t see it. If he does, it will be phenomenal. But that’s not anything I’m focused on at all.”
