Shaq travels with C's

Not that it ever seemed in doubt, but Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal joined his teammates Saturday for a flight to Miami in advance of Sunday's Game 1 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Heat.

The Celtics were hoping to put O'Neal through some on-court activity Friday. A team official said after the practice that there was no update on O'Neal and that he remained status quo. Rivers had noted before the session that he was more confident that O'Neal would play in the series, but set no definitive timeline for his return.
