The Celtics' first choices to defend Cleveland's LeBron James in Thursday's game are Marquis Daniels and Paul Pierce. And both Daniels and Pierce missed practice Wednesday with flu symptoms.
Daniels could be available for the game but Pierce, who also has a sprained thumb, is likely out.
The Celtics also just tweeted:
Marquis Daniels missed practice with the flu, and Doc says Paul Pierce is almost certainly out tomorrow night vs. Cleveland.
Ok, I'll ask the question. Did Nate bring the flu over from NY and infect Pierce and Daniels? Somebody quarantine Rondo STAT.
