The Celtics return home for the first time in 16 games to face the retooled Washington Wizards and here is a quick injury update:
*Mickael Pietrus has been diagnosed with a concussion and may miss several games. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said Pietrus isn’t even close to taking those NBA-mandated concussion tests to determine when he can return.
*Ray Allen had an MRI on his left ankle which was negative but he will miss tonight and won’t make the trip to Charlotte tomorrow to face the Bobcats. His status is uncertain for Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz.
*Avery Bradley will start tonight at the shooting guard after leaving Friday’s loss to Philadelphia with a sprained left ankle.
