BOSTON (AP) - Boston forward Paul Pierce missed the Celtics' home game Friday night against Cleveland because of a sore left ankle.
Coach Doc Rivers said before the game that the Celtics were being cautious with Pierce, but expected him to be available Sunday when they host the Washington Wizards.
Pierce also missed a game at Minnesota on Monday for the birth of his son.
The Celtics were also without Kevin Garnett, who missed his eighth straight game because of inflammation in his left ankle.
