Delonte West was on the court and in uniform around 5:45 p.m. before tonight’s game with the Knicks. West walked through practice today, but there is no definitive word yet on if and how much West will play.
Al Jefferson, who played 20 minutes against the Bobcats on Wednesday in his first game back since an appendectomy, warmed up vigorously on the court before the game.
Rajon Rondo left Celtics practice earlier today complaining of an illness. The Celtics will wait until Rondo arrives tonight to see if he feels well enough to play. Even if Rondo plays, he may see limited minutes today.
One non injury-related note: Sebastian Telfair appeared on the Garden parquet a little earlier than usual for his second matchup of the season with cousin Stephon Marbury and the New York Knicks. Telfair seems to smile more when playing games where New York is involved.
The Celtics locker room has just opened. Back in a bit with pregame reaction from Paul Pierce and Doc Rivers.
