Paul Pierce Has A Sprained MCL

ATLANTA, GA - MAY 01: Paul Pierce #34 of the Boston Celtics drops to one knee after their 87-80 win over the Atlanta Hawks in Game Two of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2012 NBA Playoffs at Philips Arena on May 1, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia.

It was more comforting when they called it a sprained knee. Adding the letters MCL makes it sound more medical which in turn makes it sound a lot scarier. He participated at shootaround this morning and looks like a go. It can not be overstated how important winning Game 6 is. Closing out the series tonight could give the Celtics four days rest (if Chicago can win in Philly and force a Game 7). I can't help but blame this all on Tebow(ing).

In other injury news, the official word is that Avery Bradley has a "sore rotator cuff," but is also expected to play and start tonight.
