Shaquille O'Neal did not practice with the Celtics Saturday but is expected to play against Toronto in the team's preseason home-opener Sunday.

Said coach Doc Rivers: "Shaq -- just his hips, that will be an issue on and off at times, we're prepared for that."

Jermaine O'Neal (hamstring) returned to practice and will be available Sunday.

"He went the entire practice, so all good," Rivers said of Jermaine. "But we have to wait until tomorrow."
