Celtics captain Paul Pierce worked out Monday and experienced limited soreness in his bruised right heel, but coach Doc Rivers does not believes he will be ready for Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat.
"He worked out [Monday], went pretty well," said Rivers. "He didn’t get as sore, so that’s a good sign. He's not going to play tonight -- I doubt it at least."
Asked if Pierce was to sit out Tuesday's game whether he'd likely miss Wednesday's season-opening road-trip finale in New Orleans as well, Rivers was noncommittal.
"We’re just going to go day-by-day," said Rivers. "I’m not sure."
