Rasheed Wallace Foot Injury: Out a Week?

Continuing a recent trend with the Celtics, Rasheed Wallace will not sit out up to a week with a foot injury. He missed Monday night’s 102-96 loss to the Hawks, and should be out for the rest of the week. Kevin Garnett is also out of action, leaving the Celtics pretty thin at big men.

“Looks like a week, maybe,” Rivers told the Globe. “It’s day-to-day, but I would say maybe a week. Maybe less. I think it’s toe, foot. I’m not sure what it is. I don’t know exactly. I know it started hurting him last night after the game. In the locker room he was saying his foot was bothering him. And then this morning it got bigger I guess. But when he came to the game he thought he was going to play. He actually went out and and tried to warm up, and he came in and said, “Hey Coach, I can’t go.” And we did x-rays and all that, and they were negative, but they also showed that he probably needs a break.”

In Wallace’s absence on Monday, Rajon Rondo took five threes (and made just one in typical ‘Sheed-style), and Doc Rivers received a rare double-technical and was ejected. It sure seemed like ‘Sheed was with the team.

With both Garnett and Wallace out, look for Kendrick Perkins, Glen “Big Baby” Davis, Shelden Williams, and Brian Scalabrine to step up and fill in at the power forward and center positions.
