CSNNE.com spoke to Mickael Pietrus today, and he acknowledges that he dodged a bullet.
"We have been playing good basketball and to end the trip like that was sad," Pietrus told CSNNE.com.
He added, it "could have been worse."
So not only is he on his way back and talking to the media, Sherrod added this little nugget to his piece:
Depending on how those tests go, Pietrus could be back on the floor as early as Sunday's game against Washington
I don't really expect him to be available tomorrow, but I suppose it depends on how the tests go. If he passes all the league-mandated concussion testing and can go through a full-contact workout, then he'll get the OK.
Quite honestly, I don't care if he's available tomorrow. Just the mere fact that it's even possible is a HUGE sigh of relief that he's going to be OK. This has been a season full of scares and close calls. It's hurting the team on the floor, but at least these guys are walking and talking. The Celtics haven't exactly had that level of luck in the past.
