Celtics.com reports :
Brian Scalabrine and James Posey, who both sat out Saturday's win over New Jersey, practiced with the team Monday and both are expected in uniform and ready to go Tuesday night when the Celtics meet the Pacers in Indianapolis.

Posey injured his lower back on Wednesday night against the Nuggets, while Scalabrine suffered a concussion after taking an inadvertant shot from Hawks forward Al Horford.

"It feels a lot better," Posey said of his back after Monday's session at The Sports Authority Training Center at HealthPoint. "I got smashed in between like four players, and I tried to play through it, and then I tried to take a charge on J.R. Smith and fell on it, and that really didn't help the situation."

Meanwhile, Scalabrine says he doesn't remember how the actual concussion happened, but said he was told that the crowd was chanting his name in support as he was laying on the floor.

"People have mentioned that. I do appreciate that," said Scalabrine.
Good news on both players, and it's nice to hear that Scal appreciated the cheers / chant.
