LOS ANGELES — Celtics [1] starting center Kendrick Perkins [2] had to be helped off the court after his right knee appeared to buckle in a collision with Andrew Bynum [3] under the Lakers basket midway through the first quarter. League officials reported during the game that Perkins had sustained a sprained right knee.

The center had X-rays on the leg and his return for Game 6 was ruled out by the team during halftime. Perkins will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. His status for possible Game 7 on Thursday is uncertain.

Perkins and Bynum collided going for the rebound with 5:30 left in the first and Perkins landed awkwardly and remained on the floor several minutes while pointing at his right knee. He was helped off the court by Brian Scalabrine [4] and Shelden Williams [5] and could not put any weight on the leg as he made his way back to the dressing room.
