Forward Brian Scalabrine practiced at full speed today and is expected to be available for the Celtics when they visit Chicago in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series Thursday.
Scalabrine, who has been out since sustaining a concussion Feb. 23, wore a protective headband during the workout.
“It protects me in the slight chance I get hit there,” Scalabrine said of the white headband. “One our trainers jimmy-rigged it together. It could blow up — stock options available.
“My head is not an issue. I’ve been allowed to work out and I feel good. I didn’t even breathe hard.
“I have the benefit of seeing the last two games and we’ve been going over Chicago for a week now. So I’m comfortable with what we need to do.”
