Paul Pierce practices, could play Tuesday vs. Celtics

Well what do we have here? Paul Pierce is practicing for the Nets today and has a shot to play against the Celtics Tuesday night in Brooklyn.

Pierce fractured his right hand on November 29th against the Rockets and was said to miss 2-4 weeks. If he does play against Boston, Pierce would be returning 10 days after the injury. Doesn't sound much like a player who lost his passion for the game, as previously reported by Washburn.

We will see if it actually happens, but either way it looks like Pierce will be back sooner rather than later.
