Pietrus stays in Philly for testing
Pietrus suffered what is officially being dubbed a questionable closed head injury (concussion) during Friday's loss to the 76ers at Wells Fargo Arena. After being taken by ambulance to an area hospital, Pietrus underwent an x-Ray, CT scan, and was scheduled for an MRI.
Initially, Celtics coach Doc Rivers believed Pietrus would remain overnight, but the team later announced he would not be admitted.
Rivers admitted it was a frightening scene on the court.
"It looked awful," he said. "I saw it immediately -- I didn’t think he hit his head, I wasn’t sure, but I just saw his neck snap, so you knew that was bad. Obviously, he was throwing up on the floor, so that wasn’t very good either."
