Well… didn't see this coming.
BOSTON – The Boston Celtics announced today that guard Marquis Daniels
underwent successful surgery this morning at New England Baptist
Hospital to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb. The procedure was
performed by Celtics Team Physician, Dr. Brian McKeon and Dr. Drew
Terrono. No time table has been set for his return.
Daniels has appeared in 19 games for the Celtics averaging 5.7
points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. The former Auburn Tiger
posted a season-high 10 points against Utah on November 11.
Scariest phrase in that: "no timetable has been set for his return". I would expect at least 4 to 6 weeks… I'd put my money on more than that, though.
Hope I'm wrong.
UPDATE: C's put the timetable at 6-8 weeks
