WALTHAM — For the second time in three days, Paul Pierce [1] injured his right shoulder. This time, the injury happened midway through Celtics [2] practice when he ran into a back screen and fell to the ground. Rivers said trainer Ed Lacerte said if it’s just a stinger, Pierce should be fine to play.

“He actually got hurt again,” Rivers said. “It’s a stinger. It was the same exact reaction. It looked worse today. Eddie said if it’s a stinger, he’ll be fine but you get concerned because it’s a game and a practice, exact same thing.”

‘€œThat’€™s something you play a guy five minutes and that can happen, Rivers added. ‘€œThere’€™s nothing you can do about that. The good news is it’€™s not a shoulder separation or anything and probably the worst case is he misses a game or two, at worse. That’€™s not all bad and obviously, you’€™d like to have him and it’€™s not a lower body injury.’€

Meanwhile, Kendrick Perkins [3], who has missed the last two games with left knee tendinitis, is expected to return to the starting lineup on Wednesday night against Kevin Durant [4] and Oklahoma City at TD Garden.
