Update (Monday, 2:28PM): The MRI on Pierce's foot came back negative and he will play against the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday night, according to CSN NE.

Original Post:
Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce had a tough game on Sunday, shooting 0 for 10 and scoring one point in 40 minutes in Boston's 85-82 win over the Miami Heat. After the game, Pierce brought up two health concerns as explanations for his play.

First, Pierce told the Boston Globe that he would undergo an MRI on his left foot on Monday. WEEI reported that Pierce first injured his left foot "a few weeks ago."

WEEI.com also reported that Pierce told reporters that he "sprained his hand yesterday at practice." ESPN Boston noted that it is Pierce's right wrist, which is his shooting hand.

Sunday was a historically bad performance for Pierce. CBSSports.com's Ken Berger noted that the last time Pierce didn't make a field goal while playing more than 10 minutes was in March 1999, nearly 12 years ago. ESPN Stats also noted that it was only the fourth time in a career that has spanned 937 regular season games that Pierce didn't make a field goal.

Additional updates on Pierce as soon as they become available.

Pretty astonishing level of hate coming from the peanut gallery here.
I'm still sitting back going "PP went 0 for 10 and the Celtics won anyway"
That just tells me that this team is learning how to take up the slack that they're going to HAVE to take up eventually, when Pierce and Ray and KG are gone and they're trying to avoid a re-run of 1994-1998...
Of course, there were two player deaths involved in that collapse, but still....

Paul Pierce looks like the most unfit player in the NBA, don't get me wrongb PP has game and skills but he looks like he has a fa to muscle ratio of 90:10.  I'm suprised he isn't injured more.  What is his workout regimen? Doughnut curls and Yoohoo flexes...

They should probably sit him. They could probably start gody and beat the nets.

Damn, now they will have to come up with a different excuse for that performance.

It doesn't matter much as long as they can still beat the Heat! The Heat aren't much a threat to beat the Celtics these days.

He should have had them cart him off on a stretcher only to return after the TV timeout. Or does that only occur for his fake injuries?

He's saving that for the playoffs.

No need to make excuses WHEN YOU WIN!!!  Unlike the Heat (and apparently their fans) the Celtics could care less about individual stats.
