Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and general manager Danny Ainge have been playing a lot of golf lately. They may have extra time to play more.

With the NBA lockout in progress, the scheduled opening of training camp next week remains in jeopardy.

Rivers and Ainge fended off questions Monday about the labor problems between the league and its players. Last Tuesday, a meeting between the executive committee of the NBA Players Association and the owners' labor relations committee produced no progress.

Ainge was the coach of the Phoenix Suns during the last NBA lockout and has sour memories.

The Celtics have just seven signed players and cannot add to their roster while the lockout continues. They're also working with a revamped coaching staff.
