BOSTON (AP) - Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge won’t be at the team’s playoff opener after his minor heart attack.

Team spokesman Jeff Twiss said Friday that Ainge is resting comfortably and could be released from Massachusetts General Hospital by Sunday. Boston plays the Chicago Bulls on Saturday and then again on Monday before going on the road for Game 3 next Thursday.

A spokeswoman for Massachusetts General Hospital referred comment to the team.

Ainge was hospitalized Thursday morning after missing Wednesday night’s regular-season finale because he wasn’t feeling well.
