Rivers suggested that Pierce is almost certain to be held out, though he didn't rule out a potential return if the thumb improved dramatically overnight, while Daniels looked so haggard, he was sent home from Wednesday's session.
"He looked terrible today, so we sent Marquis home," said Rivers. "He looked awful. We’ll see tomorrow. If [Pierce and Daniels can't play], I have no idea right now. We’ll figure it out."
Regarding Pierce, Rivers added: "I'm not going to say definitely, but most likely not [Thursday]. We'll just evaluate it day to day. We didn't want to take the chance of him getting hit on his thumb in practice, so that if he feels good [Thursday], he can go. If not, we'll wait. We've got [games] Thursday and then Saturday, then a two-day break, so we'll just go a game at a time."
No big deal. We're just playing the best team with the best 3 in the world and 2 of our small forwards missed today.
Good thing the box will have free booze tomorrow.
