No Shut Down In Sight

Shira Springer reports:

It should come as no surprise that Paul Pierce might not meet with doctors until after the season. Pierce prefers competing to sitting on the sideline, especially when he knows that his younger teammates benefit from having him on the floor.

"Eventually, I'll see the doctor," said Pierce. "I'm the type that will get a cut and not wear a Band-Aid."

Asked if he may wait until the season is over, Pierce said, "Possibly."

At this point, the strongest possibility is that Pierce will finish out the season in uniform, take some much-needed time off, then work hard over the summer in Los Angeles to regain the strength and conditioning he lost because of a stress reaction in his left foot.
