Perk out sick

WALTHAM — Kendrick Perkins [1] did not practice on Monday and is not making the afternoon trip with the team to Detroit, according to the team.

Perkins, who played in the team’s loss to New Jersey on Saturday, became sick over the weekend, the latest player to battle flu-like symptoms. The Celtics [2] play in Detroit on Tuesday before returning home for a game against Charlotte at TD Garden on Wednesday. Marquis Daniels [3] and Paul Pierce [4] had to miss parts of last week with flu-like symptoms.

‘€œIf he’€™s feeling better he’€™s going to fly up [Tuesday] to the game,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers [5] said. “Obviously, I don’€™t see that happening but if he’€™s feeling a lot better, we’€™ll have him do that. We just have so many guys that aren’€™t feeling well right now that we can’€™t afford to even have a guy around anybody else to let it start up again. We’€™re taking a different measure right now. We’€™re keeping all unhealthy people away from each other right now, even with injuries. Just stay away.’€

If Perkins can’t go, Rivers said Wallace would likely start in Perkins’ place at center.
