Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters that Pierce sprained his ankle, but joked that the late-game injury is an old veteran’s trick for getting out of practice. “I told him we play tomorrow, so he’ll be OK,” quipped Rivers. Boston plays the Minnesota Timberwolves in the tail end of a back-to-back Monday at the TD Garden.
One of these days, the Celtics will start getting healthy.
On second thought, maybe not.
