Injured Trio Out for the Weekend
BOSTON - The Celtics are down to eight healthy players, and they'll have to find a way to make it through the weekend that way.
Paul Pierce, Al Jefferson and Delonte West are all out for tonight's game against the Miami Heat and Saturday's game in Indianapolis against the Pacers.
Pierce (sore left elbow) is targeting a return on Wednesday night against the Sixers, but is expected to travel with the team on it's two-game trip to Indy and Atlanta. As for West (sprained left ankle), he is also slated to travel with the team after tonight's game and is hoping to return against the Hawks Tuesday night.
Jefferson (bruised left knee) will not make the trip, remaining in Waltham for treatment and conditioning work, and he is considered day-to-day.
