Man… the hits just keep on comin'

Kendrick Perkins is expected to miss the last three games of the Celtics' West Coast trip because of a left knee injury suffered in Tuesday night's victory against the Golden State Warriors.

A source told CSNNE.com Perkins suffered a strained MCL. He's listed as day-to-day, but is expected to miss Thursday's game in Denver, Saturday's game in Los Angeles against the Clippers, and Monday's game in Utah.

Well, that's different from a bruised knee, isn't it.  Well… we just can't win with the injuries.  Here's hoping this really is a day-to-day thing and he'll be ok soon.

UPDATE:  Gary Washburn confirms this is a minor injury.  Exhale, people.

    I hope they sit him for a while. No rushing back. Im really glad this (seems) to be a minor thing. But (once again) weve been here before, so as a rule, im taking the severity announcement with a grain of salt.
