With the playoffs quickly approaching and the Celtics seeding set in stone, there really is no reason to play their key guys other than get a rhythm going heading into the playoffs. That especially goes for the veterans.
The 35-year old Jason Terry for one missed the last game against Orlando. Apparently he could miss more than that with some "bothersome" legs.
Jason Terry could miss both the last two games. Doc said his legs are bothering him.

The ailments don't end there, apparently Celtics captain Paul Pierce is fighting some sort of "illness" and did not practice today.

If it were me, I'd rest both guys until the playoffs, there is very little benefit to playing them.
Should the Celtics play their veterans over the next two games?
