EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Will Brooklyn Nets small forward Paul Pierce continue coming off the bench?

That remains to be seen.

“I haven’t even thought about it yet,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said Wednesday. “We’ll talk to the staff, I’ll talk with him and we’ll make a decision. ... We’re not saying this is permanent. We’re going to take it day by day; that’s the only way we can do it.”

Pierce came off the bench for just the fourth time in his career Tuesday night.

“For him, going with the glove, getting used to the glove and also being out and having him come off the bench, I thought he did a great job with the second group,” Kidd reiterated.

• There were no updates on Andrei Kirilenko (missed 17 games with back injury) and Jason Terry (missed 10 games with a knee injury).

Asked about Kirilenko, Kidd said, “He’s getting treatment, and so that’s all I can tell you.”
