Shaquille O'Neal A Game-Time Decision For Celtics' Game 2 Vs. Heat

Shaquille O'Neal will be a game-time decision for the Boston Celtics' Game 2 against the Miami Heat in the second round of the 2011 NBA Playoffs, reports Paul Flannery of WEEI.com.

O'Neal didn't play in Game 1 or any of Boston's four games against the New York Knicks in the first round of the playoffs. He had a short stint in one regular season game in April, but tweaked his hamstring and missed the rest of the Celtics' schedule. He hasn't played substantial minutes since early February, and Boston coach Doc Rivers told Flannery that this was Shaq's first scrimmage in the last month.

"He looked great yesterday. He went through the whole practice. He was phenomenal actually. He had one stretch that was phenomenal. Then by the end of the practice he was struggling walking. We’ll see but I would say Game 3 is becoming likely. Game 2, were not sure but I doubt it."

The Celtics visit Miami for Game 2 at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, trailing in the series 1-0. For more on the C's, visit CelticsBlog.
