Paul Pierce said that if it were a playoff game he could go tomorrow against New Jersey. Head coach Doc Rivers was more practical, saying he’d likely sit out tomorrow.
“He wasn’t going to do anything today. He may do a shootaround tomorrow and we’ll evaluate, but right now, I’m pretty sure he won’t play.”
Rivers also touched on Marquis Daniels, who practiced for the first time, going through skeleton sets with Rasheed Wallace, Eddie House, Glen Davis, Sheldon Williams and Brian Scalabrine.
When you miss the amount of games he’s missed, you can run but the timing of the game is completely different … He has to remember the stuff we did. He has to be re-taught all the stuff all over again. So it’s tough.
