Mickael Pietrus went crashing to the floor with 5:08 left in the second quarter of tonight’s Celtics-76ers matchup, and a stretcher was required to take him off the floor.
Pietrus moved his arms and legs before being taken off the court, but his teammates huddled around him looking forlorn. The scene was eerily similar to last February, when Marquis Daniels crumbled to the floor after a collision with Gilbert Arenas.
Despite not hitting his head against the floor after his fall, Pietrus immediately grabbed at the back of his head once his lower back hit the floor. It’s unclear yet exactly what happened, but Greg Dickerson said on CSNNE that it looked like Pietrus was spitting up blood.
Stay tuned for updates and keep Pietrus in your prayers.
