Celtics’ Pierce, Garnett Out Against HEAT

The Boston Celtics announced Thursday that neither forward Paul Pierce nor center Kevin Garnett will play in Friday’s visit to the Miami HEAT.
As expected, both players traveled with the team for a brief two-game road trip, but neither will dress for the first night of a back-to-back because of sore ankles. Garnett sat out eight games because of left ankle inflammation before playing the past two contests for Boston; Pierce has missed two games recently because of sore ankles.The Celtics are 0-3 in the games Pierce has missed this season.
Given that Garnett and Pierce traveled to Miami, it’s likely that both could be back in the lineup for Saturday’s game in Orlando.
