WALTHAM — Barring any unforeseen changes, Shaquille O’Neal [1] will make his Celtics [2] debut as the starting center on opening night against LeBron James [3], Dwyane Wade [4] and the Miami Heat [5] on Tuesday night at TD Garden.

“Most likely Shaq, to be honest,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers [6] said following Monday’s practice. “We haven’t officially announced it but most likely.”

Rivers added that back-up centers Jermaine O’Neal [7] and Semih Erden will both suit up and be ready to play. O’Neal has been playing with torn cartilage in his left wrist while Erden has a sore shoulder that Rivers indicated will take some “managing” to keep him healthy enough to play.
