Boston, MA - Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal saw game action Sunday for the first time since February 1.

He lasted just 5 1/2 minutes before getting injured again.

O'Neal, 39, had been sidelined with a strained left Achilles's tendon, then suffered a right calf strain in a win over the Pistons on Sunday.

Celtics head coach Doc Rivers did not have a timetable for O'Neal's return following the game, but did say the strain was not bad.

"It's very minor. Scary, more than anything." Rivers added.

O'Neal scored six points before exiting. He averaged 9.3 points and 4.9 rebounds in his first 36 games with Boston.
