No Arroyo: The Celtics will be without newly acquired Carlos Arroyo, who will join the team for Tuesday’s practice in Boston. Doc Rivers said Arroyo was acquired for his veteran savvy and to spell Rajon Rondo, who is playing heavy minutes of late.

No Wafer: Swingman Von Wafer did not make the trip to Milwaukee and Rivers said he is unsure how long he will be out. Rivers also said Shaquille O’Neal, who is celebrating his 39th birthday today, is not close to returning after pain returned to his Achilles tendon. The Celtics also will be without Glen Davis, who is out with a sore left knee.

Celtics have nothing on Bucks injuries: Milwaukee will be without four players tonight: Center Andrew Bogut, who usually fares well against the Celtics, has a left ribcage strain; Drew Gooden has left plantar fasciitis; Ersen Ilyasova has a concussion and Michael Redd remains sidelined with a torn left ACL and MCL.
