Kendrick Perkins Likely Out For Rest of Road Trip

According to sources, Kendrick Perkins is expected to be out for the remainder of the Celtics’ west-coast road trip. After injuring himself against the Warriors, Perk is expected to miss the games in Denver, L.A. (Clippers) and Utah. If that’s all he misses, Perkins would return March 2 at home against the Suns.

With Perkins out, the Celtics are also down both O’Neals. Semih Erden recently returned to action after injury woes of his own, and if those reappear, the Celtics would just be down to Glen Davis, unless they make a trade or have to resort to Kevin Garnett or someone else as an emergency center.

If Boston is to make a trade to fill the void, they would first of all have to do it by 3:00pm EST this Thursday. Secondly, they would have to part with a select few members of their roster and/or draft picks, since they’re low on centers to begin with. Boston’s most likely option right now may to be to hope for health.
