Mickael Pietrus will miss Monday’s game with the Orlando Magic with what is being described as a shoulder injury. Pietrus is scheduled to have an MRI tomorrow after what head coach Doc Rivers described as not being able to lift his arm over his head.
Based on the evidence, this is not a good sign. Mickael Pietrus logged 34 minutes of action against the Wizards Sunday and saw his shoulder “flare up” on Monday according to team sources.
The Celtics have been devastated by injury and we are only a few weeks into the season. The Celtics enter tonight’s game down five players and will need to channel a spark from some unlikely sources.
Mickael Pietrus brought an energy to the aging club, an energy that is going to be hard to duplicate given the present state of the roster.
In seven games played this season, Mickael Pietrus has been averaging 8.7 points and 1.1 rebounds per game.
