WALTHAM (CBS) – Shaquille O’Neal will not play in Game Two of the Celtics playoffs series against the New York Knicks, Doc Rivers said on Monday.

O”Neal practiced with the team last Thursday, but was ruled out for Sunday’s 87-85 Game One win after missing practice on Friday and Saturday.

Team doctors would not put a timetable on Shaq’s return.

O’Neal, out since April 3 with a calf sprain, averaged 9.2 points and 4.8 rebounds in 37 games for Boston.
