*The Celtics again were shorthanded as Paul Pierce (right heel) sat out practice while Rajon Rondo sprained his right ankle during the workout. Neither injury is considered serious.
*Jeff Green, Brandon Bass, JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore did not practice today because of NBA paperwork and the potential David West deal that did not work out. Celtics coach Doc Rivers moved practice to 2 p.m. Monday to allow the league to approve the Bass deal and allow Johnson and Moore to be cleared.
*The Bass-Glen Davis trade includes former Celtic Von Wafer, who is going to Orlando in a sign-and-trade, but he’s in Europe so that’s why the trade is being held up. Bass is in Walthan and has watched the last two practices.
*Rivers said newly acquired Chris Wilcox can bring energy and is getting used to the Celtics’ practice style. Rivers said Wilcox got fatigued and thought the club took water breaks, but Rivers told him practice never stops and water is available but with no breaks.
