MIAMI (AP) - Boston center Shaquille O’Neal is out for Tuesday’s Game 2 of the Celtics’ Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Miami Heat.

O’Neal scrimmaged with the Celtics in practice on Monday. Celtics coach Doc Rivers says O’Neal looked good at times, then had trouble getting around by the end of the session. Rivers says O’Neal may be “likely” to play in Game 3 at Boston on Saturday.

O’Neal has missed much of the past three months with calf problems.

Meanwhile, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says forward Udonis Haslem will remain out for Game 2. Haslem has not played since Nov. 20 with a ruptured ligament in his left foot.
