The Globe reports:

Celtics forward Brian Scalabrine is slated to be out the remainder of this month after being diagnosed with post concussion syndrome. Scalabrine suffered his third concussion this season against the Nuggets on Feb. 23 and has not played since. He is currently resting and won't begin monitored basketball workouts until he shows improvement. Celtics coach Doc Rivers is hopeful that Scalabrine can return to action on April 1 against Charlotte. has updates and quotes as well.

"I don't even know if I am supposed to tell you this. Looks like he's gonna be out a month. I think the return date is April 1st. That's not a joke. I didn't get into the evaluations, but they did say out a month. I was hoping maybe a week out, but the good news is he'll be back in time for the playoffs. That's a good sign."

On the other hand, he didn't have much to say about Garnett.

"He's moving a little better. He's jogging now," Rivers said, noting that there's no target date for Garnett to return to practice or basketball activity.
