Krstic Knee Injury Update: Bone Bruise, Listed Day-To-Day

The Celtics finally received some good news on the injury front on Saturday, as center Nenad Krstic, who was injured Thursday night in the win over the Spurs, has a deep bone bruise in his right knee, but nothing worse. He’s officially listed as day-to-day.

“We’re happy with the prognosis,” Krstic’s agent, Mark Cornstein said today. “We’re excited it’s not a severe injury. It sounds like a pretty deep bone bruise.”

The C’s originally feared that Krstic might have torn his ACL, which would have¬†definitely¬†ended his season. Krstic suffered the bone bruise on a collision in the second quarter in which his knee bent a bit awkwardly. He definitely won’t play Sunday against the Pistons, but he should be OK for the playoffs in a couple weeks.

Krstic’s injury coincided with the return of Jermaine O’Neal, who hadn’t played since January. Shaquille O’Neal may also return to the Green sometime in the next week as the C’s finally begin to get healthy up front.
