Finally got an update on Mickeal Pietrus' condition. It was encouraging that he was not admitted to the hospital, but still very concerning. Paul Flannery just tweeted this update.
Mickael Pierus has been cleared to travel and will be seen by Celtics medical staff when he returns to Boston.— Paul Flannery (@Pflanns) March 24, 2012
And this from Chris Forsberg:
Story link coming, but initial tests (x-Ray, CT scan) revealed no abnormalities. It appears to simply be a concussion; More tests to be run.— Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) March 24, 2012
This is very good news. The fact that he is cleared to travel means he is doing ok short term. And the fact that were were no abnormalities is good. A concussion is still serious but happy it wasn't worse. Now we wait for the long term prognosis from the Celtics doctors. Forsberg also reported that Pietrus' first question was about what happened in the game. I love this guy. We need him. Please continue prayers. FLCeltsFan 3/24/2012 11:51:00 AM Tweet
