Pierce's elbow is leaking (Herald):
Paul Pierceâ€™s left elbow is swelling again, but he said it is not something that will cause him to miss games.Â
â€œIt still leaks,â€ said Pierce, who picked up his 2,500th NBA assist in the third quarter last night. â€œItâ€™s very painful, but I have a high pain tolerance.â€Â
The captain doesnâ€™t expect the elbow to heal until the summer, but he also doesnâ€™t anticipate having another operation like the one he had last summer.Â
â€œIt looks nasty,â€ said Rivers, â€œbut itâ€™s not something that affects his basketball.â€
Sounds like a perfectly good excuse for shutting him down sometime in the near future.Â A thread on this subject has already been started in the forums.
