Celtics coach Doc Rivers is not anticipating any moves by the team before the NBA trading deadline Thursday.

"I don’t think there’s going to be much, but you never know," Rivers said after the Celtics practiced in Salt Lake City Wednesday afternoon. "At the last second something could pop up, but I doubt it."

The Celtics lost two guards this week; Sam Cassell was traded to Sacramento and Tony Allen had left thumb surgery today and is expected to miss the rest of the regular season.

"Tony and Sam, miss them," Celtics captain Paul Pierce said. "Unfortunately for Tony, he's having a really bad year as far as injuries. He's coming off an ankle injury and now this happens. It takes away from our depth at the wing position, so maybe we'll make a move or something, I don’t know. But it really hurt us at that position."

Forward Brian Scalabrine trained at full speed during a two-hour session and is expected to play against the Utah Jazz Thursday.
