Scal not likely to play this week

WALTHAM  —  Brian Scalabrine [1] watched Tuesday’s practice on the sideline, still slowed by back spasms that forced him to miss last Friday’s game against Phoenix.

“I don’t anticipate him playing this week but with the backs you just never know,” Celtics [2] coach Doc Rivers [3] said following practice.

Scalabrine returned on Saturday night against the Nets [4] and scored five points in 20 minutes off the bench, including a 3-pointer.
