Shaq misses second straight game with calf injury wire reports

CHICAGO -- Boston center Shaquille O'Neal missed his second straight game with a strained right calf when the Celtics played the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night.

The 15-time All-Star returned Sunday against Detroit after missing 27 games because of a sore right leg but lasted just five minutes, 29 seconds before leaving again. He did not play against Philadelphia on Tuesday.

Coach Doc Rivers says he thinks O'Neal will be healthy when the playoffs start, but isn't sure what to expect from him, adding that's "the wait and see part about our team."

Boston was second in the Eastern Conference, three games behind Chicago and a half game ahead of Miami entering Thursday.
