Pierce: 'I'm ready to go' for Detroit

WALTHAM -- Paul Pierce practiced on Monday and said afterward he is ready to go for the team's game in Detroit on Tuesday after missing the last three games with a sprained right thumb. "I would have been back for the Cleveland game, please believe me, as much as I love to play against Cleveland, as much as I love to play against LeBron," Pierce said. "I even went out there and shot before the Cleveland game because I wanted to be out there so bad. I don't think I'm rushing back. I think this is perfect timing. My body feels good, my hand feels good and I'm ready to go." The Celtics won their first game without Pierce against New York last Tuesday before dropping home games to Cleveland and New Jersey. For more, including WEEI.com video of Pierce from Monday's practice, visit the Green Street blog.

Julien expects no changes for B's

Claude Julien spoke to reporters Monday and discussed the upcoming trade deadline, "There really isn't anything we can do about it, you always work with the players you have in front of you and that's what I got to do right now. The players I have now are the players I expect to be here and until I'm told otherwise or something happens, that's the way I'm approaching it." The Bruins practiced Monday morning at TD Garden to prepare for the Montreal Canadiens who will come to town Tuesday night. Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, and Miroslav Satan were missing from practice but are expected to be back Tuesday morning for the pre-game skate.  For more Bruins news and updates visit the Big Bad Blog.

Perkins out sick, not expected on trip

WALTHAM -- Kendrick Perkins did not practice on Monday and did not make the afternoon trip with the team to Detroit. Perkins, who played in the team's loss to New Jersey on Saturday, became sick over the weekend, the latest player to battle flu-like symptoms. 

 

“If he’s feeling better he’s going to fly up [Tuesday] to the game," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. "Obviously, I don’t see that happening but if he’s feeling a lot better, we’ll have him do that. We just have so many guys that aren’t feeling well right now that we can’t afford to even have a guy around anybody else to let it start up again. We’re taking a different measure right now. We’re keeping all unhealthy people away from each other right now, even with injuries. Just stay away.” 

 

If Perkins can't go, Rivers said Wallace would likely start in Perkins' place at center. The...
