Celtics forward Paul Pierce isn't sure if he'll be able to play on Monday night in the back end of a home-and-home series with the Raptors.

Teammate Brian Scalabrine rolled into Pierce's knee a few minutes into Sunday's 94-88 win. The injury originated Dec. 15, when Utah's Mehmet Okur caught Pierce in similar fashion.

Pierce ended up playing 41 minutes against the Raptors in Toronto.

"We're still going to get it checked, because he clearly was moving right . . . until he had to take a shot," coach Doc Rivers said of a fourth-quarter jumper that kept Boston above water. "It's amazing how offensive players when they get the ball they get healthy. But we're a little concerned about that because we didn't think he moved well at all the rest of the game.

"I was scared to take him out of the game because I thought if I took him out in the second half we probably wouldn't have been able to put him back in."

Pierce is hoping for the best.

"Scal fell into it - the knee that's been sore for the last few weeks, the same one I hyperextended," Pierce said. "It's just a little sore. I aggravated it a little bit, but I was getting treatment after the game and I'll see how it feels (today). Hopefully it'll get better overnight.

"I was a little ginger on it for most of the game after I got the hit, but I just wanted to be out there to help my team."

because rat face is just like that [expletive] tom brady, who says hes hurt every week during the season and then shows up to a miracle.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

I'm sure it's just coincidence that he has a great game RIGHT AFTER he whines about his knee...This guy is a joke.

Their real concern should be for their woeful bench, thin front court past Garnett, a fading Rondo with no back-up, and a figured out Celtic defensive scheme that no longer holds any water.

Drama queen, there is nothing wrong with him... He is just jealous because Lebron James is getting all the attention...

This guy went from underrated to overrated after 2 years...
