Paul Pierce to Miss Preseason Opener With Heel Injury While Jeff Green’s Injury Remains a Mystery


The injury bug isn't making preparing for condensed 66-game regular season any easier for the Celtics.

The injury doesn't seem to be too serious, however. It's unknown, though, the extent of Jeff Green's mystery injury, an injury that caused the newly signed forward to fail his physical after agreeing to a new one-year deal.
