Scal strikes again

WALTHAM  —  Paul Pierce [1] was sporting a bandage on the right side of his face after getting hit by an inadvertent elbow from Brian Scalabrine [2] during Thursday’s practice.

“It went great,” head coach Doc Rivers said [3]. “He elbowed one guy in the head and hit another guy so he’s back. Scal’s back.”

Pierce, who sustained only a minor scratch after a struggle for a loose ball, wasn’t the only victim of Scalabrine’s physicality in practice as J.R. Giddens got hit on the top of the head.

None of the injuries are expected to force any players to miss Friday’s game against Atlanta. Scalabrine returned to practice after back spasms forced him to miss two of the last three games.
