“Usually you pass your physical by now,” admitted Rivers. “Listen, I’ll give you guys more tomorrow for sure. But I’ve been around long enough to know that if you haven’t passed your physical yet, then there’s something going on. I just haven’t found out, but I’ve been around long enough to know there’s something going on.”
Rivers pleaded ignorance, saying he had been in basketball meetings all morning and hadn’t conferenced with Ainge yet to talk about the latest test results. Ainge admitted more results were in, but wouldn’t offer any indication about what was found.
“We will know more about Jeff tomorrow. [He's] completing all tests and all results should be known by tomorrow afternoon,” said Ainge. “We’ll wait until then to give you guys all that information.”
