Perk Refuses To Be Diagnosed

Can't say I'm surprised.  Just hope he's alright and not doing anything to create long term issues.

Celtics center Kendrick Perkins sustained a left shoulder strain in the final quarter, but said he plans to play in Game 5 tomorrow, to the point where he will refuse to have the injury diagnosed by a magnetic resonance imaging exam.

"It didn't pop out, it's something like a muscle strain," Perkins said of his shoulder. "It's the playoffs and the tissues don't have time to heal, so it's weak back there. It'll take two months and I'll be all right. I'm not taking the MRI. If I take the MRI and they find something, I may be out."
