Celtics Training Camp 2011: C's Practice Notes From Thursday

BOSTON - Doc Rivers and the Boston Celtics held their first practice at TD Garden, the team's home arena, early Thursday afternoon after holding their six prior practices at Healthpoint, the team's practice facility, in Waltham, MA.

Rivers and C's general manager Danny Ainge addresses the biggest story so far at camp - the health of Jeff Green. Boston re-signed Green to a one-year deal worth $9 million, but the transaction has been held up due to a problem with Green's physical. Both Rivers and Ainge declined to comment on what the issue was, but Ainge did say the results were in.

Due to the uncertainty surrounding his health, Green was held out of practice Thursday, and at this point Ainge does not expect him to play in the team's first preseason game against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. Rajon Rondo (sprained right ankle) and Paul Pierce (bruised right heel) were also held out of practice.

Rivers does not plan on playing Pierce in the first preseason game against Toronto, but he said Rondo may play if his condition improves. Boston will hold a morning practice and an open scrimmage on Friday evening at TD Garden.
