Pierce bangs his knee

Paul Pierce [1] limped off the court during practice on Sunday in Waltham after he banged his knee into the leg of forward Shelden Williams [2], according to ESPN.

The injury, according to head coach Doc Rivers [3], didn’t appear serious. But it was enough to force him out of the final moments of practice.

“It’s starting to feel better, I hope he’s fine,” Rivers said following the session. Pierce was spotted at the end of practice with ice on his right knee – the same one that forced Pierce to the sidelines for five games around the holidays with an infection.

“He got kneed [in] same exact spot,” Rivers said. “It’s just amazing the luck right now with things like that.”

The team held a full practice on Sunday after his team held a short workout on Saturday that included a skills competition.

The scary moment at the end of the practice comes as the team prepares to welcome back Rasheed Wallace [4] to action in time for Monday’s game against Dallas at TD Garden. Kevin Garnett [5] is hopeful to return on Friday against Portland.
