Doc Rivers Again Rests Starters for Season Finale Against Knicks


April 13, 2011

No surprises here — Doc Rivers is once again resting his starters for the final game of the Celtics' regular season.

The Celtics' four All-Stars — Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo — are all healthy but will all sit on Wednesday night as the C's take on the Knicks at the TD Garden. Shaquille O'Neal, Jermaine O'Neal and Delonte West will also take the night off to rest minor injuries.

With West out with a sprained ankle, Carlos Arroyo gets his first start in a Celtics uniform. He and Von Wafer will be the C's starting backcourt.

For the Knicks, Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony will be inactive for the season finale. Amare Stoudemire is expected to start but see limited minutes.

Here's the lineup card for C's-Knicks:

Carlos Arroyo, PG
Von Wafer, SG
Jeff Green, SF
Glen Davis, PF
Nenad Krstic, C

Toney Douglas, PG
Landry Fields, SG
Bill Walker, SF
Amare Stoudemire, PF
Ronny Turiaf, C
