Doc Rivers after the game: “He got hit pretty badly. I know they think it’s a deep bruise. He’s probably out [Wednesday vs. New Orleans].”
Paul Pierce, if you were wondering, almost certainly will miss Wednesday’s game against the Hornets, according to Doc Rivers.
“He worked out [Monday], did some shooting [Tuesday] — he’s feeling better, there’s no doubt about that,” said Rivers. “He won’t play tomorrow, either — it’s probably safe to say that. Then we’ll wait and see, maybe the home-opener [on Friday against Detroit].”
