Daniels may suit up against Magic

WALTHAM ‘€“ Marquis Daniels [1] may suit up against the Magic on Sunday, but Doc Rivers [2] is still undecided if he will play.

‘€œIf Marquis dresses, I still don’€™t know if he’€™ll play tomorrow,’€ Rivers said after practice. ‘€œI’€™m not sure.’€

While the Celtics [3] ran contact plays during practice, Daniels, who has been out since early December with a thumb injury, did not get as many hits in as Rivers would have liked. Daniels had previously said he was looking forward to getting his first real hit (he just preferred it didn’€™t come from Kendrick Perkins [4] or Glen Davis [5]).

But if it were up to him, he would be getting back on the court on Sunday.

‘€œHopefully tomorrow I’€™ll be ready to go,’€ he said. ‘€œWhatever minutes I get, I’€™ll be ready to go out there and perform.’€

After practice Daniels tweeted [6], ‘€œ1st game back 2morro, thumb is feeling pretty good so anxious to play I don’t think y’all understand’€
