Pierce out against Miami

Paul Pierce [1] will not play against Miami and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Tony Allen [2]. Doc Rivers [3] also said that he didn’t think Pierce would be able to play Friday against the Nets [4]. The Celtics [5] are considering the foot injury to Pierce to be a day-to-day situation.

Rivers said there is a chance that Marquis Daniels [6] could be ready to return Sunday against the Magic, but he stressed that the team wouldn’t make a decision on Daniels based on Pierce’s availability.
