Brian Scalabrine returned to Celtics practice today for the first time since sustaining a concussion in a Feb. 24 game. Scalabrine has not been cleared for full participation, but was able to take part in noncontact drills.

"It's encouraging," Scalabrine said. "I got the go-ahead to go 5-on-0."

Dr. Robert Cantu of Emerson Hospital approved the return after Scalabrine experienced eight successive days of workouts without concussion symptoms.

Scalabrine will likely miss the Celtics' games against New Jersey tomorrow and Miami Friday. He is expected to travel with the team to Cleveland for Sunday's game but he has not been cleared to play in games.
