Celtics Vs. 76ers: All Systems Go (Sort Of) Against Philadelphia

BOSTON - Doc Rivers has a (mostly) healthy roster as his Boston Celtics head into their game with the Philadelphia 76ers on Easter Sunday at 6 p.m. EST. That is, as healthy as this team is going to be at the moment.

Aside from the season-ending heart ailments of Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox, as well as the wrist surgery that sidelined Jermaine O'Neal, Boston will bring a relatively healthy roster into Sunday night's game.

Mickael Pietrus is the only key cog still missing from the team the Celtics will take into the playoffs, as he continues to recover from the concussion he suffered against (ironically) the Sixers several weeks ago. There was good news, though, as Rivers said that Pietrus' condition is improving and he was in the building Sunday (and he wasn't wearing shades).

Also, Avery Bradley will start once again and Ray Allen will come off the bench for Boston.

For more on Pietrus' condition, as well as other pregame news, listen to the audio below.
