Celtics ailing heading into Wed. vs. Nuggets

The Celtics are heading into Wednesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets with a myriad of injuries. Several players sat out practice today in Waltham and coach Doc Rivers does not know how many will be in the lineup for the Denver game.

Nate Robinson (personal reasons), Rajon Rondo (hamstring), Glen Davis (illness) and Shaquille O’Neal (knee) didn’t participate in practice. Robinson may return to the team tomorrow while Davis is trying to get over a high fever.

Rivers said O’Neal and Rondo are questionable for Denver.

Jermaine O’Neal, meanwhile, was working with assistant coach Roy Rogers doing post moves although there has been no timetable for his return. O’Neal has not played since Nov. 8 at Dallas.
