The team is still citing "personal reasons" for PP's absence from shootaround. This is after Doc was certain that he'd play today after missing Monday's game in Minnesota. The Celtics are only a game ahead of the eighth seeded Bucks with Milwaukee owning the tie breaker. Tonight isn't a necessarily a must win, but it would be nice to sweep the 4-game homestand against Detroit, Cleveland, Washington, and Brooklyn. The Pistons are no joke either; they've won both previous games against the C's in convincing fashion.
