Nenad Krstic to Get an MRI on His Knee

The Celtics got Jermaine O’Neal back last night (who played surprisingly well), but lost another big man, and there’s no telling how long he’ll be out just yet. From NESN: “Nenad, I don’t know,’ coach Doc Rivers said after Thursday’s game, a 107-97 win over the Spurs. ‘He’s out obviously this weekend. MRI. That’s as far as I’m going to go.’ Krstic left with 2:18 left in the first half of Thursday’s game. He was leaping into the paint when he landed awkwardly on his right leg. His knee became bent out of shape and he immediately felt the pain. Krstic limped off the floor with the help of Celtics trainer Ed Lacerte. While the rest of the Celtics head straight to Atlanta, where they close out their four-game road trip on Friday night against the Hawks, Krstic will return home to Boston. He will undergo an MRI on Friday. Krstic has played 18 games for the Celtics since being traded from Oklahoma City to Boston on Feb. 24, starting all of them. He’s averaged 9.3 points and 5.6 rebounds per game.”

    Can’t catch a break.

    I saw his knee go all wiggly. It wasn’t pretty.

    Oops. Shouldn’t have traded Perkins.

    Perk has two bad knees, and they were not going to re-sign him. Krstic was playing well, but I would rather have Shaq and JO come playoffs. Perk might make it through the playoffs at 80%. As big and if as we have concerning JO and Shaq. Jeff Green gives them the scorer off the bench they needed. Roll the dice, Danny.
