Nenad Kristic Day-to-Day After Negative MRI

The Celtics received a scare Thursday night when center Nenad Kristic went down with a right knee injury. Many feared the C’s would be losing another big man for a long period of time, leaving the team shorthanded up front. But that won’t be the case, CSNNE is reporting: “It could have been worse—a lot worse. Saturday’s MRI results on Nenad Krstic’s right knee came back negative, which means the 7-foot center’s injury isn’t nearly as serious as first feared. Krstic suffered the injury in the second quarter of Boston’s 107-97 win at San Antonio on Thursday. He came down awkwardly while running down the court, and was unable to return to action. In fact, the Celtics have not ruled out him returning to action as early as Tuesday’s game against Philadelphia. Krstic has what team officials classify as a bone bruise on his right knee, and are listing him as day-to-day. As far as when he’ll return to action, that has yet to be determined. When it comes to establishing a rern date, bone bruises rank among the toughest injuries to get a read on.”

    Let’s hope Nenad is not going to be “back in the lineup in a few days” like the C’s have been saying about Shaq for weeks.

    Kinda the total opposite of Shaq’s injuries, looked much worse than it really was, while Shaq’s look like nothin, but last For-ev-er…

    Their big men are hurting.

    There is no “i” in Nenad Krstic.
    Regardless, if the Celtics are expecting this guy to start for them in the playoffs, then they are already done! Shaq came back for 6 minutes last night and got hurt again.
    This team is just lacking chemistry now. Not a good time to play around with the lineup that has served you well for the last 3 years. Thanks Danny Ainge!
