Pietrus Out Until Playoffs

 

This depressing-but-expected news courtesy the Boston Herald.

There is still no word on when Mickael Pietrus will be able to take the tests that will determine when he can resume playing, but Doc Rivers doesn’t hold out much hope he’ll be on the court before the playoffs.

“I can’t imagine it being any sooner,” the Celtics coach said before last night’s 100-79 win against Minnesota. “When I talked to him two days ago, he was talking about next week. But he has a concussion. That’s the way I looked at the conversation. But I don’t know. He may be right, but I doubt that. I would think with the severity of that injury, we would be very happy if he could return by the playoffs.”

That last, loaded line from Doc suggests it might actually be optimistic to expect Pietrus back by the start of the playoffs. Which means Avery Bradley — he of the recent strong play — should consider himself a key part of the rotation from now until the end of the season.

    Bummer to hear that he won’t be back anytime soon, but I’m glad he’ll be able to return & that he’s not being rushed back. The theme of this season has been pace, so slowly & surely, the C’s will get there and MP will be there with us for the ride.

    I think that now more than ever Doc Rivers need to bring Ray Allen off the bench when he returns to the lineup. I don't think he will, but he should. Why not try it for a few games? Having Bradley in the starting lineup has made them a better defensive time at the beginning of games and gives the C's an explosive backcourt that can give teams fits on both sides of the ball. I think this is the lineup they should stick with; Bradley needs to get more than 10-15 minutes a game. He's just a different player as a starter. I think Allen would be great as a 6th man because he plays with the second unit quite a bit anyways. Shorten the backcourt rotation and play bradley and allen 30 minutes per game.
