The Herald Blog has some good news and some bad news.
Sebastian Telfair will, indeed, be playing tonight, but Theo Ratliff and Wally Szczerbiak will not.
Ratliff, who missed the first three games of the season with a back problem, could be out a while with this latest flare-up.
Szczerbiak walked by Doc Rivers a little less than an hour before tipoff and let him know that a right gluteus strain would make him unavailable. Szczerbiak hopes to be back by Monday’s game against Orlando.
The good news is that Telfair should be playing tonight. At least, that is good news if Rondo doesn't have to sit again. We desperately need his defense. The bad news is that Wally and Theo will be out tonight. The smart thing would be to put Theo on the IL and play Powe. But then, Doc has not been known to do the smart thing all that often.
