Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce will play on Monday versus the Hornets.
Insight: Pierce missed the team's shootaround Monday morning due to the passing of his close friend. He will be playing with a heavy heart on Monday and knowing how competitive Pierce is, he should play very well under dire circumstances. We wish Pierce the best through this tough time.

Description: Wizards small forward Paul Pierce is expected to play on Wednesday versus the Timberwolves according to the Washington Post despite hitting his knee on Tuesday.
Insight: However, with Wednesday's game being the second of a back-to-back set, we anticipate Pierce perhaps being on a minutes restriction. But if owners need him, Pierce should play.
