Paul Pierce definitely hammed it up, but...

I've had many knee dislocations in my time. If the knee is out of place, it's incredibly painful and it's honestly scary. When the joint is put back in place, the knee almost instantly feels perfect again. It feels bruised/sore, but it feels stable again, and fairly pain free once the joint is set. With these types of injuries, a simple tight wrap will suffice and you can play again on it fairly quickly.

I have no idea what Pierce's actual injury was diagnosed with, but I've dislocated my knee and played the next day multiple times (loose tendons), so it's not too far fetched to think someone could be in pain one second and fine a few minutes later if the joint was set properly.
