"He's been cleared," Rivers said. "He worked out yesterday. This is good for him to ease him in instead of just throwing him in. So that's how we're going to do it. The sooner we can get him on the floor, the better. All the doctors have cleared him. Once I hear that, he's ready to play." Pietrus was grateful when talking to reporters. "I'm very happy to get a chance to play," he said. "I'm very blessed to play from where I came from. It wasn't easy for me. It's been a very tough two weeks, but hopefully I'll be able to help my team again."

In less happy news, Ray Allen is out again with a sore ankle.
