As expected: Pierce hints that he will skip the preseason game in Boston

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Title seems pretty self explanatory.

Nobody wants to see Pierce make his return to Boston in the preseason.  Least of all him.

Paul Pierce says it's time for the Brooklyn Nets to start running New York - ESPN New York

Pierce wishes his Jan. 26 return to Boston were sooner in the regular season. "You just want to get it out of the way. When you gotta go through something tough, I've always been a guy that just wants to get it out of the way. It's gonna be in the back of my mind," Pierce said. Pierce added that he does not plan to go to Boston for the preseason meeting there against the Celtics. "I'll do it just one time next year," he said.

I'm pretty sure that coach Jason Kidd (still getting used to that) will agree and see to it that Pierce gets a break that day.  Probably even a day off.
