Nets swingman Paul Pierce [1] is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a non-displaced fracture of the third metacarpal of his right hand, the team announced Monday.

The injury is likely to force Pierce to miss next Tuesday’s game vs. the Celtics [2] in Brooklyn.

Pierce was injured in the first half of Friday night’s 114-95 loss to the Rockets.

Pierce is averaging 12.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 15 games this season, his first in Brooklyn following the offseason trade that also included Kevin Garnett [3] and Jason Terry [4] leaving Boston.

The Nets [5] are 5-12 and ahead of only the Knicks in the Atlantic Division.
