The Boston Celtics are once again down a big body. Current starting center Nenad Krstic suffered a right knee injury as he drove to the basket near the end of the first half of the game against the Spurs.. The injury looked serious due to awkward bend. Krstic hobbled his way to the locker room. The Celtics sent out a message that he would not return to the game.
It is a good thing that Jermaine O’Neal did return to play tonight. Had he not the Celtics would have Glen Davis and really nothing else to man the middle. If this injury is serious and Krstic is done, Shaq better be coming back soon because this team is now as thin as they were before JO returned and that was paper thin. However, the Celtics still have some depth and size on the roster that could be returning or getting back to form soon. Do not forget that Troy Murphy was signed as insurance. It looks like Murphy might be a bigger signing than people thought. Murphy does need to get his ankle back to form and get better conditioned to be effective. The three weeks left should be enough time for that. The team has Shaq, JO, and one Troy Murphy on the roster. All they need is them to be healthy. However, that has been the issue the entire second half of the year. Stay tuned for updates on this injury. Remember Go Green Or Go Home!!!!!
