Paul Pierce Day-to-Day With Foot Sprain

Celtics fans can breathe easy following a stressful day of ominous tweets, and false reports. Their guy’s foot isn’t broken: “It turns out that Paul Pierce has just a mid-foot strain and is listed as day-to-day and president Danny Ainge didn’t rule out the possibility of Pierce playing Wednesday night against Miami, although it appears unlikely. The Celtics medical staff reviewed Pierce’s X-rays and MRI and determined that his left foot wasn’t broken, as had been feared earlier. According to team sources, the Celtics thought Pierce may be out several weeks after bending the foot awkwardly after being landed on by Washington’s Caron Butler in the first quarter of the 99-88 win Monday over the Wizards. ‘We were concerned after watching the injury and seeing the soreness on Paul’s foot this morning and what it looked like on TV,’ Ainge told the Globe on Tuesday night. ‘I was worried, so I was very relieved to hear it was a sprained mid foot and that he’ll be back soon.”‘

    Don’t trip, next game he’ll come out on crutches and sit for the first 5 minutes then jump to the scorer’s table and gallop his way to 25-6-6, and just for kicks it will air on TNT while they constantly remind you they know drama

    even though its diagnosed as a foot sprain, don’t breath easy just yet… just look at Reggie Evans and his foot sprain, hasn’t played a game this season and he sprained it during training camp

    PP could use the rest. He’s been carrying the team on his back all season.

    No slight on the man, but I kinda hope this takes him outta the all-star game… I cant’t stand watching him jack up threes year after year. After year.

    It’s better for the C’s to go through these kinds of things now and hope to be healthy during the playoffs. This can provide some quality minutes for the bench to step-up and get some valuable playing time so maybe they will be a better team for this. When your players are getting old, you have to baby the injury(s) as much as possible in hopes of preserving for the most necessary timing.

    I’m not the biggest Boston fan, but glad to see he’s ok as I have him on my fantasy league. =P
