All in: Pierce, Ray and Bradley to play

Despite lingering injuries from their first round win over the Hawks, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Avery Bradley will play for the Celtics in their series opener against the Sixers Saturday night at TD Garden. 

Pierce is dealing with a sprained MCL in his left knee. Allen is dealing with soreness in his ankle and Avery Bradley has a strained rotator cuff in his left shoulder. 

Pierce and Allen were kept out of Friday light practice while all three were cleared after shootaround on Saturday morning, though Allen didn't participate in the shootaround.

"[Allen] is doing all right," Rivers said an hour before Game 1. "He didn't go through shootaround but progressed today. We need them."

Ortiz says heel sore, but will still play

David Ortiz was back in the lineup Saturday after leaving Friday night's game in the seventh inning with left heel soreness.

"Just running down the line I took a hard step right when I got to the bag and my heel got sore," said the Red Sox DH, who was hitting third for the Sox against the Indians in the third game of the teams' series. "I iced it last night. I'm OK. It's still a little sore, but I'll try [tonight]."

Red Sox Bobby Valentine said Ortiz assured him he was ready to go.

"When I talked to him he said he's probably not going to be stealing a lot of bases tonight, but he's OK to go," Valentine said. "We have and understanding if he feels anything, if he feels like maybe he should not be swinging, even in the middle of an at-bat, he'll let us go. But he says he's OK to go and the training room thinks he's OK to go."

Valentine also commented on how he would approach playing Ortiz in...
