You can continue and read my rant on the different stories coming out about the Pierce injury…. OR you can read the final report HERE.
According to many different sources, Paul Pierce has an injury on his left foot. The extent of the injury ranges from a tweak in the ankle which will keep him out for a couple of games, to a broken foot which could possibly end his season. As we try to remain a credible source of reliable Celtics information, we will not speculate on the extent of the injury, but instead just inform you on who is saying what and you can debate with yourself over what is true or not, because at this time NOBODY knows the true definition of his injury.
As was written by David Aldridge on NBA.com, Paul Pierce likely has a broken foot. But guess what? David Aldridge also said before the season started in regards to Glen “Big Baby” Davis’ injury, that he was out for the season. We saw that that was far from factual. Also, he said in that same writeup that he was our backup Center. 9 times out of 10 Davis is our backup Power Forward. Afterall, he was filling in for Kevin Garnett last year was he not DA? Just for kicks and giggles here is what David Aldridge had to say:
All-Star forward Paul Pierce for a significant period of time to a broken left foot, according to a league source.
The team does not know for sure if Pierce’s foot is broken after X-rays taken Tuesday; more tests are scheduled. But it “looks that way,” the league source said.
Then in an update later, to make up for his attempt to be the first one to report on the subject:
Another league source, while acknowledging that Pierce hurt his foot Monday, also said there was not yet definitive word that Pierce broke his foot and that the injury “might be a lot less serious” than that. Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss said Tuesday evening that the team’s medical staff had yet to make a determination of the extent of Pierce’s injury.
CSNNE is speculating that due to the fact that he has to have more tests done tomorrow, he likely does not have a broken bone. They think the X-Ray that was done today would be the way for the team to come out and say he has a broken bone. They instead figure he may have some injury that can be tested with an MRI (tendons, ligaments, etc).
Again, who the heck knows until tomorrow. Danny Ainge said the team will have a better understanding as to what is wrong with Pierce once the tests are finished tomorrow.
