getting better, it's still a little sore," Pierce said of his left foot
sprain. "I'm hoping over the break, with some time off, I can continue
the process of getting better. Definitely, the weekend is going to
help. I plan on playing tonight and plan on being in the All-Star game,
plan on being in everything."
Pierce will also be involved in the 3-point contest.
"I have been practicing, I feel pretty good about it, I
like my chances," Pierce said after the Celtics completed a
late-morning shootaround. "I don't see a lot of wear and tear if I
participate in the weekend activitites, play about 10-12 minutes in the
All-Star game. The 3-point contest, I don't really see too much wear
and tear, I don't look at it as something that is going to hinder me."
You can't tell me the foot won't benefit from 5 days of pure rest.
Is that what Rondo was referring to when he called out some players for having "agendas?"
