Paul Pierce Estimates Foot 80% Healed
After missing the first three games of the regular season with a bruised right heel, Paul Pierce scored 21 points and grabbed eight rebounds in Monday’s win over the Washington Wizards.
Still, the Celtics captain says he has a ways to go.
“[I’m] probably at like 80 percent as far as the foot is concerned,” he said following the 100-92 victory. “I still have to get my treatment. There’s still some bruising in the foot. I have to wear a lot of padding in my shoes. It’s coming along, but I’m feeling more confident I think. I’m not even thinking about it, and that’s the good part.”
