Rivers expects everyone to play in Game 5 vs. Hawks

Celtics coach Doc Rivers said this morning he expects to have his full complement of players available for Tuesday night’s Game 5 against Atlanta.

Forward Paul Pierce tweaked his knee Sunday during a shootaround, but played in Game 4, putting up 24 points in 16 minutes. Guards Avery Bradley (shoulder) and Mickael Pietrus (hamstring) are also banged up, but both players are expected to play tonight in Game 5 in Atlanta (8 p.m., TNT).
