WALTHAM Tonight's game against the New York Knicks will be a playoff preview in name only.

The Boston Celtics as well as the Knicks are expected to sit most of their key players.

Among the Celtics not expected to play is Delonte West, who re-aggravated a right ankle injury that had sidelined him earlier this season.

West did not participate in the team's morning shoot-around, and is doubtful to play.

The only other Celtic not to participate in the shoot-around was Shaquille O'Neal, who is still nursing a strained right calf injury suffered against Detroit on April 3.

Both players are questionable for Boston's Game 1 playoff matchup against New York, a game that's likely to be played on Sunday.
