Pietrus suffered a knee injury in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Philadelphia 76ers and missed Boston's last game as a result. The Celtics got along just fine without him in Friday's win over the Pirtland Trail Blazer, but Pietrus should be ready to play against the Lakers.
This season, the small forward is averaging 6.7 points per game and 3.1 rebounds per game. He has not played more than 25 minutes in a game since Feb. 22.
