Big Baby, 'Sheed back for Celtics in Game 6

BOSTON (AP) — Boston's Glen "Big Baby" Davis is back in uniform for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Magic.

Celtics coach Doc Rivers says Davis can play Friday night against Orlando. The Boston forward blacked out on the court with a concussion in Game 5 on Wednesday by an inadvertent elbow from Magic center Dwight Howard.

Rivers says Rasheed Wallace is also cleared to play. He tweaked his back in the last game, when the Magic won to avoid elimination for the second time in a row.

Boston Guard Marquis Daniels, who also had a concussion, will not play.

The Celtics lead the series 3-2. A loss would force a Game 7 in Orlando and give the Magic a chance to be the first team in NBA history to come back from a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series.
