Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce did not play in tonight's game against the Knicks. While it appears Doc Rivers is just resting his superstars, there is some concern about Pierce's left wrist. Here's the latest from Peter May:
Pierce, however, was wearing an ace bandage on his left wrist, which was covered with an ice bag. He said he hurt the wrist in the Atlanta game and that he doesn't believe the injury is anything more than a bruise. However, he said he'd have x-rays tomorrow just to make sure. "I don't think it's anything bad,'' Rivers said of Pierce's wrist.
Here's hoping this "injury" doesn't linger. Eddie House also sat with a strained right adductor. He might play in Wednesday's season finale against New Jersey.
My nitpick of the night: Don't get me wrong, I love KG – but it pisses me off when he doesn't join the team on the bench. I can understand when he's injured, because it's possible that he's getting treatment during the game. But why can't the man just throw on a suit and join his boys on the bench? And don't give me the garbage that he's too intense to sit and watch. There, I said it. Now bring on the hateful responses.
