Celtics president Danny Ainge appeared on The Big Show Wednesday afternoon and said the team is being cautious with Paul Pierce's injured right thumb heading into Thursday's game against the Eastern Conference-leading Cavaliers. "It will be a game-time decision," Ainge said. "You never know with Paul. We want to be cautious with that thumb because those things can get aggravated easily. I don’t think the injury is serious, but they can get aggravated over and over and over."
Ainge said he thought newly acquired guard Nate Ropbinson "was playing a little nervous" in his Celtics debut Tuesday night against the Knicks. As for Robinson and Rajon Rondo sharing court time, Ainge wasn't sure that was a good fit. "I don’t think that it’s an ideal tandem," he said. "I look at it more as an option that Doc has occasionally. I don’t think it’s something we should see every night or something like that, unless it’s very successful, and it could be."
