Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck just finished up an appearance on ‘€œThe Big Show,’€ and touched on a couple of topics, namely Glen Davis and Rajon Rondo (Click here to listen to the complete interview):

Grousbeck confirmed Davis suffered a broken thumb in a recent altercation. Though he did not give a specific timetable for the forward’€™s return, he did suggest that such injuries ‘€œare usually not season-threatening. … It’€™s a broken thumb. I don’€™t think it’€™s going to be that long.’€

Grousbeck did say that the team expected to ‘€œsuspend or fine’€ Davis. Noting that the 23-year-old will be out for some time, Grousbeck suggested that the Celtics planned to sit down with the player and determine an appropriate punishment. ‘€œI think we’€™re going to ask him to chip in,’€ said Grousbeck.

On why they wouldn’€™t reveal what happened: ‘€œI can’€™t talk to him. He’€™s post-operative and I’€™m getting on a plane. It’€™s just the way it is.’€ Read the rest of this entry »

CLEVELAND  —  Cavaliers superstar center Shaquille O’Neal was asked about his friend Glen Davis, who did not make the trip to Cleveland for the season opener Tuesday night because of a reported broken bone in his right hand following a fight with a former LSU teammate on Sunday night.

“Well they call him Big Baby for a reason, he’s my son,” joked O’Neal, who like Davis starred in basketball at Louisiana State. “A lot of people don’t know that. He’s a great player. I’ve known him since he was a youngster.

“He works hard, has been working hard on his game. It’s an unfortunate incident but one thing about him is he’s a focused individual so he realizes he may have made a mistake so he’ll come back more focused than ever.”

The Cavaliers held a brief shootaround at Quicken Loans Arena on Tuesday morning.

WALTHAM —  Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Friday that despite some minor back issues with Glen Davis in the preseason, the power forward should be ready to go for Tuesday’s opener in Cleveland.

Davis played 16 minutes last Sunday in Toronto, scoring nine points off the bench.

However, the news is not as promising for Brian Scalabrine [right ankle] and Tony Allen [right knee].

“Scal, his ankle, I don’t expect him to be ready for opening night, but I’m not sure yet,” Rivers said. “Tony is a definite ‘no’ but everybody else is good.”

By   |  1 Comment

On Tuesday night, the Celtics overcame a 14-point deficit to defeat the Nets, 91-88, in Newark, N.J., during preseason action (recap here). With Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen getting the night off, the Cs were propelled by Rajon Rondo and the reserves.

  • Rondo led the Cs with 18 points, 13 assists, and nine rebounds in 40 minutes. This is in contrast to Sunday’s game against the Nets when he posted eight points, three assists and two rebounds in 26 minutes.
  • Rasheed Wallace (20 points, 9 rebounds, 25 minutes) was the Celtics‘ driving force in the first half. However, he rolled his right ankle in the third quarter and eventually left the game. Doc Rivers told the media he considers the injury to be mild.
  • Eddie House demonstrated his tenacious intensity by fighting for loose balls, forcing jump balls and hitting clutch shots, including a go-ahead jumper with 34 seconds left. He finished the night with 14 points.
  • Glen Davis continued to knock down his mid-range jumper en route to 18 points. The Celtics were a game-high plus-12 with Davis on the court.
  • J.R. Giddens, whose talent only had been showcased in the D-League, played his best NBA game. He grabbed 13 rebounds and scored seven points.
  • Marquis Daniels started the game but left after 15 minutes with a stomach bug.

The Celtics will travel to Hartford to take on the Raptors on Wednesday night.
