Celtics' Mickael Pietrus Passes Baseline Test, Recovering From Concussion
Boston Celtics swingman Mickael Pietrus suffered a nasty injury two weeks ago in Philadelphia, tumbling to the floor and sustaining a Grade III concussion in a road loss to the 76ers, but there's good news now on Pietrus' recovery. As Celtics coach Doc Rivers announced prior to tonight's rematch with the Sixers:

Pietrus suffered the injury on March 24 -- it was a scary scene, as the C's reserve lay on the floor for nearly 10 minutes, immobile. Coach Doug Collins led the Sixers in a team prayer for the opposing player.
Rivers said a week later that Pietrus would be "out a while," later amending that statement to say he was optimistic about him playing before the end of the regular season.
