Pierce Expected Back Soon

After checking with the medical team and watching Paul Pierce go through Boston’s light practice on Saturday, Doc Rivers still had some uncertainty as to when he could expect him back. He is expected to return sometime this week, albeit in a limited capacity.

“It could be sooner (rather) than later,” said the coach, mentioning home games Wednesday and Friday against Miami and New Jersey, respectively, as possibilities. “We talked about it enough that I do know when he does, there’ll be no back-to-backs and there will be an extreme minute limitation early on. They were talking about a 10-12-minute thing early and then 10-15 minutes. I was thinking that ain’t good.”
