Pierce game-time decision vs. Pistons

Celtics captain Paul Pierce did not participate in the team's morning shootaround and is a game-time decision for Wednesday's tilt with the Detroit Pistons.

Pierce tweaked his right ankle in Sunday's loss in New York, but did not accompany the team to Minnesota due to personal reasons. Rivers said that night that he expected Pierce to play against the Pistons.

Kevin Garnett also did not participate in Boston's shootaround and remains on a two-week recovery plan as he recovers from left ankle inflammation.
