While Celtics forward Paul Pierce is listed as day to day after suffering a right knee contusion against Utah on Monday night, he still is expected to play against the Hawks on Wednesday night. Pierce was re-examined on Tuesday and no MRI or X-ray was needed, according to team spokesperson Jeff Twiss. A solid shootaround in Atlanta tomorrow morning is expected to solidify the All-Star’s expectations to play.
Celtics guard Eddie House is also expected to meet the team in Atlanta in time to play in Wednesday’s game. House missed the Utah game after the recent death of his aunt.
