The Boston Celtics announced Thursday that neither Paul Pierce nor Kevin will play in Friday's visit to the Miami Heat.
Boston Celtics center Kevin Garnett will sit out Monday's visit from the Miami Heat due to illness, according to coach Doc Rivers.
Somehow, bad injury luck has saved the Celtics' season.
Boston Celtics rookie forward Jared Sullinger left Wednesday's game against the Sacramento Kings due to back spasms and did not return.
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers broached the idea of giving veteran shooting guard Ray Allen a game off in order to rest his ailing right ankle, but after consulting with the team's training staff, Allen pleaded his case to stay on the floor.
Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen all left Game 2 at one point with injuries, but none are considered serious.
