So as I was editing the post “Paul Pierce Has Undefined Injury”, I got onto twitter and saw awesome news. I didn’t feel an UPDATE on the post with the title “Undefined” fit well, so I made another one. Please excuse the lack of length on this but it is important and breaking news. According to Blakely on Twitter Paul Pierce is listed as day to day with a strained mid foot. We can now all take a collective breath, and sleep well tonight. Phew.
Via A. Sherrod Blakely Twitter:
Pierce has strained mid-foot injury. Listed as day-to-day.
Also via Gary Washburn:
According to Celtics, Paul Pierce has mid-foot sprain and is day-to-day. Team Dr. reviewed MRI and X-ray tonight and determined condition
We will keep you updated as more information becomes available, and if heaven forbid there are any changes to this injury as it has changed all day long. This, however is the most trustworthy news we have heard all day as finally someone reports what the CELTICS said instead of what “a source” said.
MORE INFO (Added):
Via A. Sherrod Blakely on CSNNE.com:
While it’s clearly not a season-ending injury, there’s still a chance that he might miss some games.
The Boston Celtics just announced that the Captain suffered a strained left mid-foot injury during the first quarter of Boston’s 99-88 win at Washington on Monday.
Team officials are listing Pierce as day-to-day
If there is one statement there that sets me at ease it is that he wont be missing the whole season. As of about 4 o’clock this afternoon I thought we may have seen the last of Pierce for the season, making a chance a championship that much more difficult. I mean, even if he came back in a month to two months off a broken foot, how far would he be behind? Answer: quite a bit and not as prepared as he could be for the quickly approaching postseason. Like I said… Phewww..
