Updating the status of Celtics forward Mickael Pietrus after his scary fall on Friday night (video) at the Wells Fargo Center, the team said yesterday that he did indeed suffer a concussion but has not yet gone through tests. From the Boston Globe: “It’s a concussion and he’s not even ready to take the test yet,’’
Doc Rivers said. “We’ll just have to wait and see. He sounds great. I knew
he had a concussion, but I was more worried about his neck. So we’re
fortunate. I have no idea [when he will return], we haven’t talked about
We're just glad that it doesn't appear to be a serious neck injury. It was one of the more awkward spills we've seen in a while with the strange head-grab without even hitting his head. Concussions are scary business.
