Perkins has already said he will "give it a go" in Game 7, but if he is unable to play, the Celtics would obviously be in trouble. After Tuesday night's loss, coach Doc Rivers speculated on who would take his place in the starting lineup if Perkins is out.

"I haven't given that any thought yet on who we would start. It's pretty easy to figure out, it'll be one of two guys -- Rasheed or Baby -- but I'm not sure. We've got to get better play out of Baby, and I told him that after the game. We do. He has to come with that same spirit he came in the famous Shrek and Donkey game. We need that again, and we need that from everybody."
