Shaq Doubtful for Game 5 of Celtics-Heat Series
MIAMI (AP) -- Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal is not expected to play in Game 5 of the Boston-Miami Eastern Conference semifinal series on Wednesday night because of ongoing problems with his right calf.

O'Neal played a total of 12 minutes in Games 3 and 4, limping at times in those stints. He also walked with a pronounced limp Wednesday morning when the Celtics arrived for a shootaround practice in Miami.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers says, ``I doubt it, but we'll see.'' Rivers says O'Neal's calf got worse when he played.

O'Neal missed 33 of Boston's final 34 regular-season games, then sat out the first six playoff games.
