Paul Pierce’s Somewhat Mysterious Injury

by January 28, 2011

The team says it’s a thigh issue. Paul — who left last night’s game late in the fourth quarter — thinks it’s his knee. Either way, no one seems too worried about the minor injury. The Boston Herald reports: “The Celtics say Paul Pierce has a bruised right thigh. Pierce says he has a bruised knee. Whatever it is, the captain didn’t seem overly concerned about it after the game. He hopes to play against the Suns in Phoenix Friday night. Pierce said he banged his knee in the second quarter and the problem got worse. He limped to the dressing room after coming out of the game with 2:01 left.”
