I don't think it comes to a shock that both KG, and Pierce sit out this Wednesday. They shouldn't play a preseason game in Boston, the game won't matter, and Rondo isn't out there playing. I do worry about the health of KG and Pierce. The game is on January 26th. I recall KG's first year in Boston, and he was out with the abdominal strain when the C's played in Minnesota during the 2007-08 season. So it worries me a little.

"As of right now, those two won't play in Boston," Kidd said. "They'll play in the final (preseason) game (in Miami on Friday)."
Pierce said he probably wouldn't travel to Boston, though Kidd said he hasn't talked with Pierce or Garnett about travel.
Pierce played the first 15 seasons of his career in Boston before being traded to the Nets along with Garnett and Jason Terry in the offseason.
"I'd rather do it once than twice," Pierce said of making his return to Boston.
