Celtics Short on Big Guys

Scott Souza is reporting that Perk and Pollard both sat out practice today. Pollard woke up with back pain and Perk sat out with a sore foot. Doc said that it is Perk's big toe that is bothering him and that there is a good chance that the Celtics will be without both Perk and Pollard for tomorrow night's game against the Kings.

If Perkins cannot go, Kevin Garnett will switch over to center and Glen Davis may well get his first career start at power foward. Brian Scalabrine would appear the other top option as Rivers would seemingly like to keep Posey coming off the bench to back up both frontcourt positions.

"We will go small - we have no choice," Rivers said. "When you play a team like Sacramento you don’t want to go small. … Baby right now is probably a better fit, but right now I don’t know (who will start)."
