WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) -Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce is ready to go for Game 2 of the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Pierce took part in Sunday morning's shootaround at the team's practice facility and showed no ill-effects of the right knee sprain that sent him to the locker room in a wheelchair during Game 1.
Pierce was wearing a white sleeve over his knee as he played pickup with Sam Cassell at the end of practice. Coach Doc Rivers says Pierce will be fine.
The news isn't so certain on center Kendrick Perkins. He sat out the shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Game 2 because of a high ankle sprain.
