Perkins Maybe Out, Pierce In

New, comments - Perk "likely" out tomorrow; Pierce will play

Kendrick Perkins is not on this afternoon’s flight to Michigan and it doubtful for tomorrow night’s game against the Pistons. But Doc Rivers left the door open, saying that if the Celtics’ starting center feels better, he could fly in tomorrow.

The Celts will welcome Paul Pierce back after a three-game absence.  Pierce worked out today, and his sprained right thumb was fine, having responded well to treatment.
