MIAMI — There was a change in the Celtics [1] 12 man active roster but it didn’t involve Shaquille O’Neal [2].

Carlos Arroyo [3] is in and Sasha Pavlovic [4] is out for Game 1. Teams can change their 12-man active list before every game.

“He knows this team,” Doc Rivers [5] said. “He was in their training camp. He was in their practice. He knows their personnel. I just thought he may be able to help us in some way.”

As for Shaq, Rivers said that he remains a possibility for Game 2, if not Game 3 back in Boston.

“He’€™s getting close,” Rivers said. “We actually had to make a decision so that’€™s better than what we had to do in the past. Maybe next game, if not I would say for sure Game 3.”
