Celtics vice president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Tuesday afternoon that he doesn't believe the sprained right ankle suffered by Glen "Big Baby" Davis is as serious as first feared. Davis got mixed up with Golden State's Ronny Turiaf with 9:52 left in the game when Turiaf landed on his ankle.

Davis left Oracle in arena wearing a protective boot and walking with crutches.

"I haven't heard anything, which means nothing is serious," Ainge said. "I sent (trainer) Eddie (Lacerte) a text and I haven't heard anything and usually that means it's not much."

Meanwhile, Ainge said the team will evaluate Paul Pierce's right knee this weekend to determine when he will return. "We don't have any definite dates or change on Paul," he said.
