Paul Pierce re-tweaked ankle, not practicing today. Garnett likely back Sunday.
From the Boston Globe's Gary Washburn:

Several other reporters sent out similar tweets from the C's practice today. The general consensus is that if the playoffs started now, he'd play. We'll see what this means for Friday. According to Doc Rivers, Garnett will not play Friday. Here's a tweet from the Metro West Daily News' Scott Souza:
#Celtics coach Doc Rivers: Kevin Garnett will not practice today, may play Sunday. May do shootaround tomorrow, but will not play Friday.

Overall I guess this is good news regarding the team's two veteran superstars. It's still disconcerting though; the playoffs are just two weeks away, so their day to day health is starting to become a factor.
In less significant injury news, Terrence Williams also dislocated his finger last night, but doesn't appear likely to miss an time:
T.Williams dislocated his right pinky finger during last night's game. Halftime X-rays negative. He has it taped up and will try to practice
