WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) -Despite the Boston Celtics' 17-2 record, center Kendrick Perkins failed to get a good night's sleep.
What he did get was a sore toe.
Perkins said part of his bed fell on his right big toe Monday night and he might miss the Celtics' game Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings. It would be the first time Boston has altered its starting five this season.
``Man, that's a weird story,'' Perkins said after practice Tuesday. ``I was asleep. I guess whoever put my bed together didn't put it together right when I moved, so one side of my bed fell. My bed was tilted, so I got out of my bed to go push down on the other side.
``And when I was about getting ready to push down on the other side, the headboard started coming in. So I tried to push the headboard back so it wouldn't fall over. My foot was under the bed and the other side of the bed fell on my foot.''
X-rays were negative, but Perkins was limited to riding a bike and other non-basketball activities Tuesday. He is averaging 7.3 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.
Through 19 games, the starting five has been the same: Perkins, Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo.
Backup forward Scot Pollard also missed practice with lower back pain.
``Perk's foot, a big toe injury, and that is a concern,'' Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. ``Right now, I would say there's a very good chance we're going to be without Perk and Scot Pollard'' against the Kings.
