WALTHAM — The Celtics  will likely be without Paul Pierce  when they take on LeBron James  and the Cleveland Cavaliers  at TD Garden on Thursday night, according to Celtics coach Doc Rivers .
Pierce was kept out of practice on Wednesday to protect his injured right thumb while Marquis Daniels  was sent home with flu-like symptoms.
“I’m not going to say definitely but most likely not [Thursday],” Rivers said. “We’ll just evaluate it day-to-day. I didn’t want him to take a chance of getting his thumb hit at all in practice so that if he did feel good [Thursday] but if not, we’ll just wait. We’re just going to go a game at a time with him.”
Asked if he were concerned that Pierce’s thumb was anything more than a sprain, Rivers said likely not. “I would know if it’s something else and it’s not,” he said.
Also missing practice on Wednesday was Daniels. “We sent Marquis home. He looked awful so we’ll see [Thursday] and if not I have no idea right now so we’ll figure it out,” Rivers said.
