Updates from Celtics practice

I hope you like Semih Erden and Von Wafer

Shaq is likely to miss the next two games (Portland and Phoenix). Doc had this to say regarding Shaq's grumpy hip: "It's his hip. It's locked. I don't know what the hell that means. I don't know if there's  a key you go get or something." Chris Forsberg is a genius and he hypothesizes that the Big Shamrock will join the team in Phoenix, and make the trip to LA for the big showdown on January 30.

Marquis might not play against Cleveland tomorrow. He's not hurt, but he has a family issue, so he may not be available to go. With no Shaq/JO and no Marquis, Semih will probably get the start and Von will make his way off the bench sooner than usual.

Good news about Perk and Delonte after the jump
Do you not miss the trademark growl?!

Perk is amped for his return

The big man made the announcment that he was going to make his return to the floor on February 4, against Dallas... Apparently after seeing the thin front court at practice today (No Shaq or JO), Perk told Doc that he was ready to go tomorrow night against Cleveland. Loving the enthusiasm.

On the Delonte West front...

Everything remains positive. According to the guru himself, Chris Forsberg, Delonte was catching and shooting with no hesitation at practice today.
