According to CSNNE.com, Kendrick Perkins is expected to miss the remaining games of the west coast road trip for the Boston Celtics.

In Tuesday night's game against the Golden State Warriors, Perkins suffered a left knee injury after colliding with Warriors guard Stephen Curry.  

When asked how his knee felt after the games, Perkins stated that it was "real sore."

Perkins underwent offseason surgery on his right knee, after suffering an injury during Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Los Angles Lakers. That injury forced Perkins to miss the start of the season and wasn't able to return until January 25th against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The injury has been classified as an MCL strain and Perkins has been listed as day-to-day. The three remaining games of the road trip are against the Denver Nuggets, LA Clippers and the Utah Jazz.

Boston is already playing without centers Shaquille O'Neal and Jermaine O'Neal. They also will be without big man Semih Erden, who is returning home to Turkey to see his ailing mother. Erden returned last night against the Warriors from a strained abductor and will need some time to shake off his rust.

Perkins injury places Boston in a very tough situation. The only other remaining forward is Glen "Big Baby" Davis.  

Rookie Luke Harangody will be forced to play significant minutes in the meantime.
