Shaq may miss west coast trip

Via Scott Souza:

Doc Rivers on Shaquille O'Neal: probably not going to play Tuesday vs. Cleveland, may miss West Coast trip.


Doc Rivers: Shaquille O'Neal's hip is "locked up." Coach said team may want to avoid him taking 7-hour flight to Portland and back-to-backs.

Shaq might make it to LA for the Lakers game.  We'll see.  But this is the problem with a 38 year-old, 7'2", 350 pound (or whatever) center with a bum hip.  This stuff is gonna happen. The good thing is that the playoffs give you travel time.  Until then, we'll just have to deal with setbacks like this.

    Sounds like Perk is gonna be back before Shaq. “Locked-up hip” sounds painful to me.
