Paul Pierce Will Probably Play Sunday

Pierce said his knee was stiff and swollen. He will not practice over the next two days to get treatments.

The 10-year veteran described his injury as a “sharp pain” in his knee. He plans to put off an MRI until after the season.

“At this point, with two weeks left and six games to go, we can figure this out after the season,” he said. “It’s either I can play or I can’t regardless of what the MRI says.”

Pierce said if Game 2 were Friday he wouldn’t be able to play, and said the break in the schedule should help him get ready. [AZ Central]
