Pietrus on return: 'A couple weeks, maybe?'
"I'd like to talk to you, but I don't play for Philadelphia," joked Pietrus as he left the building.
Moments earlier, though, Pietrus spoke briefly to ESPNBoston.com about his recovery from a head injury suffered against the Sixers on March 23. In his first public comments since his hard fall left him with a grade III concussion, Pietrus said he was "feeling good, much better."
Asked when he thought he'd be able to return, he answered, "Oh, I don't know. A couple of weeks, maybe? I'm hoping so."
"I'm doing everything they ask me to," he said. "I'm taking all the tests."
What kind of tests? Did he mean the neurological testing used to measure improvement following a concussion?
"Yes, those," he said. "I'm improving every time."
