Doc Rivers already said Shaquille O'Neal will be ready for Game 3 against the Heat, but there's a chance he'll go tonight, reports WEEI. Shaq is being dubbed a "game-time decision" right now.

"He looked great yesterday," Rivers told reporters. "He went through the whole practice. He was phenomenal actually. He had one stretch that was phenomenal. Then by the end of the practice he was struggling walking. We’ll see but I would say Game 3 is becoming likely. Game 2, were not sure but I doubt it."

Shaq has yet to play in the postseason and hasn't seen meaningful minutes since February. He made a brief return in April, but only made it a few trips up and down the floor before straining his calf.

Shaq has been practicing however and even scrimmaged some. As Rivers pointed out above, the team is really encouraged with the way he performed and looked. Whether he's able to hold up in an actual game though, is yet to be seen.

The Celtics and Heat play Game 2 tonight at 7 p.m. ET.

Shaq cannot save them

His body is washed out and used up. Come to think about it that describes the whole Boston team rather well.

Is that what Boston wants?  Man, I can give them 15 minutes and 6 hard fouls for half the price...call me Doc!

Perkins stat line is worse than that... Its not about individual preformance.  Its about a huge body near the basket and someone to give 6 more hard fouls.

Never before have I ever seen so much reported about someone whose box line will look like this:  6,4,0.
