Celtics center Kendrick Perkins (left shoulder) will not play against the Phoenix Suns Monday night, leaving the responsibility of defending Shaquille O'Neal to Kevin Garnett.

Perkins did not participate in the Celtics' scrimmaging at their Waltham practice facility this afternoon, but said he plans to return for Wednesday's visit to Miami. Glen Davis sustained a left elbow hyperextension in a clash with Garnett but is expected to play against the Suns.

"He's going to get evaluated tomorrow, but I'm going to say he's out," coach Doc Rivers said of Perkins.
