For those who doubted the severity of Shaquille O’Neal’s injuried Achilles tendon, he just entered the Celtics locker room wearing a walking boot on his right foot, not exactly a positive indication that he’s returning soon. Today will be the fifth consecutive game O’Neal has missed with the injury and he is not expected to return until after the All-Star Break. The Celtics first game after the break is Feb. 22 against Golden State.
