WALTHAM -- Paul Pierce was sporting a bandage on the right side of his face after getting hit by an inadvertent elbow from Brian Scalabrine during Thursday's practice. Pierce wasn't the only victim of Scalabrine's physicality in practice as J.R. Giddens got hit on the top of the head.
"It went great," coach Doc Rivers said of Scalabrine's return from back spasms. "He elbowed one guy in the head and hit another guy, so he's back. Scal's back."
None of the injuries are expected to force any players to miss Friday's game against Atlanta. Back spasms forced Scalabrine to miss two of the last three games. For more, visit the Green Street blog.
