Shaq definitely out tonight. Both he and Doc Rivers say the plan remains for him to play at Phoenix Friday night.
Perk said he has some soreness, but it isn't related to his knee. He knows he has a minutes restriction. Hopes to get up to 20 min. tonight.
When I heard Shaq made the flight to Portland, I thought he might play, but that's not the case. It makes sense to play Friday vs Phoenix and Sunday vs Los Angeles.
Glad to hear that Perk's knee isn't sore at all…
