Mickael Pietrus Injury Update: Celtics Swingman Returns Wednesday

BOSTON - Doc Rivers didn't know when he might see swingman Mickael Pietrus back out on the court for the Boston Celtics, even saying that he thought Pietrus might be out for the year. As it turns out, he'll see him again Wednesday.

Pietrus has been cleared by doctors to return to action after suffering a closed head injury (later ruled a concussion) against the Philadelphia 76ers last month. Pietrus has not played since Friday, March 23, missing 10 games in total.

While Pietrus is back, Rivers told reporters in his pregame media address that he would not play a lot in Wednesday night's game against the Atlanta Hawks at TD Garden. Rivers will also have to adjust to the absence of starter-turned-sixth man Ray Allen, whose ankle swelled up and will miss Wednesday's game. Rivers did not know when Allen would return.
