Daniels could return Sunday vs. Orlando

Marquis Daniels [1] confirmed before Wednesday’s game that he will return to practice on Thursday for the first time since having surgery on his left thumb in early December.

Head coach Doc Rivers [2] said he could possibly return on Sunday against Orlando but the more realistic date is next Wednesday in New Orleans against the Hornets. Rivers said he will not rush Daniels back just because Paul Pierce [3] is questionable and day-to-day with a left mid-foot sprain.
