Update: WBZ has posted video of the 7 minute news conference in which Pierce updates everyone on his condition, and he blows off people who accuse him of faking.
Paul Pierce talked about his injury today… and the Globe reports the news seems good:
“I can walk on it, I can bend it, but there’s a little sharp pain on the inside of my knee,” said Pierce. “There’s a little pain in there right now so I’m going to keep it wrapped, iced.”
Pierce said he would be receiving treatment 2-3 times a day to see if his knee responds. He was asked the million dollar question: Will he play in Game 2?
“I think there's a great chance I'll play on Sunday,” Pierce said, who acknowledged that it's still possible he could miss the game. “If the game was today I most likely would not play.”
This is actually great news… because Doc Rivers told WEEI this morning that if Pierce doesn't play… Tony Allen might start game 2. Tony Allen… who has been racking up DNP's in the playoffs… could get the start. Yikes.
