Shaq out for Game 2 against Knicks

Shaquille O'Neal won't play in the Celtics' Game 2 matchup against the New York Knicks, according to Comcast SportsNet New England's A. Sherrod Blakely.

He tweeted on Monday: "Shaq out for Game 2. Baby's minutes will probably be about the same."

Blakely thinks that O'Neal should take the rest of the series off.

"That's what I would do. But he'll come back when he's healthy enough to."

Shaq didn't practice on Monday after failing tests on Saturday. He missed 27 games with various injuries before he strained his calf during his first game back on April 3.
