Pierce's Leaking Elbow

Pierce's elbow is leaking (Herald):

Paul Pierce’s left elbow is swelling again, but he said it is not something that will cause him to miss games. 
“It still leaks,” said Pierce, who picked up his 2,500th NBA assist in the third quarter last night. “It’s very painful, but I have a high pain tolerance.” 
The captain doesn’t expect the elbow to heal until the summer, but he also doesn’t anticipate having another operation like the one he had last summer. 
“It looks nasty,” said Rivers, “but it’s not something that affects his basketball.”

Sounds like a perfectly good excuse for shutting him down sometime in the near future.  A thread on this subject has already been started in the forums.
