Rivers: Shaq ‘no guarantee’ for Game 1

Celtics coach Doc Rivers is not certain of the availability of Shaquille O’Neal for Game 1 of the NBA playoffs against the New York Knicks Sunday. Asked before Thursday’s practice if O’Neal would play, Rivers replied: “I do, but I can’t guarantee that. Tomorrow and the following day are the big days for Shaq. He’s going to try to get through practice and see what he can do.”
