The Celtics can breathe a sigh of relief: Despite leaving in the first quarter of Friday night's win over Sacramento, guard Nate Robinson should be good to go for Sunday's showdown against San Antonio.
According to Boston.com, Robinson practiced on Sunday after suffering a sprained ankle on Friday.
Paul Pierce is expected to be in the starting lineup despite being limited to shooting drills during Sunday's practice, and Kendrick Perkins will miss his second consecutive game with knee tendinitis, leaving the C's with 10 players.
(And we all know what that means: More Scal time.)
"Paul was sore, so that took us down to 10," Celtics head coach Doc Rivers told the Web site. "Nate's pretty good, I think he'll play. I don't think Perk will play. He may play, but right now I would say no. The way we're looking at it gives him two or three extra days, then he can play on Wednesday, so it just gives him a longer rest."
