Paul Pierce will not play tonight, reports the Celtics Twitter account. It’s also likely he will miss the next couple games, according to Doc Rivers.
Marquis Daniels, though, will play. Daniels was sent home from practice yesterday with the flu, and is speaking like “an actor in a Sudafed commercial,” tweets ESPNBoston’s Chris Forsberg. If it weren’t such a big game, Daniels likely wouldn’t play.
