    Pierce is starting to scare me.

    I have watched Paul for his entire Celtics career. I have never seen him string 3 games like this together. This is more than the flu. Maybe it is just the worst slump of his career. But maybe he's hurt.

    I know some of you guys like to rag on Pierce for reasons I will never understand. But he is this team's best player. And without a healthy Pierce the Celtics can forget about winning a title this year.

    So let's hope it's nothing major.

    Re: Pierce is starting to scare me.

    The comment of JamezHill24 confirms how great Paul Pierce really is.  He (Pierce) consistently spoils seemingly great players (they are such mainly due to publicity) and it infuriates diehard fans like JamezHill24 (a Lebron Jamez or Kobe #24 fanatic).  Perhaps this guy has a Piercephobia, the fear of seeing Paul Pierce crushing his idol.

    The only remedy to this fear is to embrace the Truth, and the Truth will set him free.

    Pierce is obvioulsy dinged up.  He had an MRI on his foot.   Let's hope it's nothing serious.

    This team has done remarkably well considering all the injuries they've had.  A little R&R over the all-star break can only help.

    Have not heard anything other that he had the MRI and there was a problem with his shooting hand. Paul will be fine. I think some well deserved rest is in order.

    Just his presence took the Heats best defensive player out of the team defense concept.

    Along with a flu bug did you see him favoring his foot as he ran up and down the court? I would venture to say of all the big three if anyone is sure to come back is the gym rat Paul Pierce. Nonsense to suggest otherwise.  Garnett would not have played if he was in PP's condition.

    lol, probly shouldnt have insulted you. but come on, the guy is ailing with foot and hand injuries...plus he has the flu..mri today said neither injury is serious and will go away in time. all star break is one game away..all im sayin is the guy has had much worse injuries than this and has been fine. obviously we cant win a ship without pierce, but i wouldnt worry about him, he will be fine.

    I don't think its fair to question Paul's toughness (whoever is). These guys play with alot of stuff that we probably don't hear about. I think you have to give the player the benefit of the doubt. And don't cry about how much their making. Whoever doesn't like it don't watch the games, don't go to the games and don't buy the stuff they put out.

    Pierce's entire Feb stats are down (especially shooting percentage).  PP can have one or two bad games but rare that it goes on for 2 full weeks.  So, I'm not surprised that its the bumps and bruises.

    One thing I don't agree with folks on, however, is this comment of playing too many minutes.  Paul is not a league leader in minutes.  His minutes are fine.  In fact, one can get stress and tired kind of injuries from too many minutes.  But, a bruised foot where someone hits your foot and hits your hand happens and it has NOTHING to do with minutes.  it can happen in the first minute of the game.  It happens to young players and old players.  Its part of the game.

    I hope the Captain recovers well and I hope he takes some time to heal.  But, I don't think his injury comes from too many minutes.   Its just an injury that can happen to ANYONE whether you play 20 minutes of 40 minutes.

    df2, He's in his 30s...Doc needs to get him some rest, which preferrably means Danny needs to get a backup 3 otherwise Doc has to come up with some small ball lineup with Wafer, West trying to play the three (who else is there?) for the second unit...
