"I was just with Shaq, we were just working out down in Waltham," said Ainge. "Shaq is either going to play Sunday or Tuesday. … I think that Doc probably — "bleed into the playoffs" — I think is something different than he’s not going to play until the playoffs. But it looks like he’s ready to go Sunday or Tuesday."
I'll believe it when I see it but it sounds like good news.
