Celtics Vs. Pistons: Pietrus, O'Neal In; Garnett Is Still Questionable

BOSTON - Injuries have hampered the Boston Celtics in the last few months, but the team delivered some good news on Wednesday night when Celtics head coach Doc Rivers confirmed that Mickael Pietrus and Jermaine O'Neal will play against the Detroit Pistons.

However, there is still some bad news. Kevin Garnett (hip flexor) is still a game-time decision for Wednesday's game. Brandon Bass, who has been sidelined with a knee injury, will also be out for the Celtics.

One of the topics during Rivers' pregame chat with the media was, of course, Jeremy Lin. Rivers had some interesting takes on Lin, and you can hear it in his pregame press conference by clicking on the link below. Also, former Celtics assistant and current Pistons head coach Lawrence Frank spoke with the media. His audio can be heard below.
