Pietrus Could Return To Action Against Heat
10th January, 2006 - 6:06 am
San Jose Mercury News - Oakland Arena will no doubt be packed Wednesday night as Bay Area fans catch their only glimpse of Shaquille O'Neal and the Miami Heat this season.

They may get a bonus appearance as well.

Warriors swingman Mickael Pietrus reported no pain in his right knee after logging heavy practice time Monday, a sign that he might be ready to return to a team that could use his spark off the bench.

Pietrus has missed the past 21 games because of a sprained medial collateral ligament suffered Nov. 21 against New Jersey. Neither he nor Coach Mike Montgomery said Pietrus would play Wednesday, but they also didn't rule it out.
Pietrus is officially listed as questionable.

``I wouldn't go that far'' as to say he's ready, Montgomery said after practice. ``But he looked good. There were no ill effects. It was good to see.''

The third-year player said he took part in about ``75 percent'' of practice and hoped for a full workout today. [READ]
