Turned ankle may force Paul Pierce to sit

NEW YORK — Celtics captain Paul Pierce turned his right ankle in the first quarter of Sunday night’s 108-89 loss to the New York Knicks and coach Doc Rivers said Pierce will “probably” sit out Monday night’s game at the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Despite turning his ankle early, Pierce scored 24 points on 6-of-16 shooting, grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds, and added 5 assists in 32 minutes at Madison Square Garden.
