Shaq out tonight, likely longer

Shaquille O’Neal will miss tonight’s game with the shin/knee (his term is “fibula”) bruise that kept him out of last night’s game in Detroit.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said O’Neal likely won’t play Friday and could even miss the team’s upcoming road trip.

O’Neal is in the building tonight.

“Just watching him move, he didn’t move very well,” said Rivers.
