Practice report: Barbosa, Wilcox, and Milicic participate

Greg M. Cooper-US PRESSWIRE

The Celtics just wrapped up a grueling three-hour practice with the entire 15 fully healthy minus Avery Bradley.

With no more preseason games on the schedule, the Celtics are hard at work in the basketball lab in preparation of their opening night showdown with the defending champs, including the newest in green, Leandro Barbosa:

That's good news on Barbosa and even better on Chris Wilcox. Training camp has been very exciting with guys like Jeff Green, Courtney Lee, and Jared Sullinger proving to be reliable building blocks towards a championship team, but it's players like Barbosa, Wilcox, and Darko Milicic that are going to prove to be the mortar off the bench. They may not be called upon every night, but there are going to be those occasional humdrum nights in January and February where Doc is going to call on his vets to fill in.

Some fun quotes from Rajon Rondo and Jeff Green:
