Jermaine O’Neal (knee) practiced at full speed today and is expected to play at Detroit Tuesday night.
“He practiced so he’ll play tomorrow,” coach Doc Rivers said. “Obviously, tomorrow morning, if it swells or something, he can’t, but right now he looked good.”
The status of Shaquille O’Neal (shin bruise) has not been determined, Semih Erden replacing him in practice.
“It depends on what Shaq does, but there’s a good chance,” Rivers said of Erden’s chances of playing. “He looked okay. He’s still go t a ways to go but he’s trying his best and that’s all you can ask for as a coach.”
