Marquis Daniels has thumb surgery

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

  • damnit….that sucks ass

  • ouch baby.. very ouch

  • You know what this means? A lot more of TA.

    UGH that is the worst thing you could have said. I’d personally like to see more Lester Hudson or even Giddens over TA, unless of course we are trying to get other teams to notice him…

  • might just be the worst part of this news

  • Josh

    how did this happen exactly? during a game? practice?

  • It had been hurt for a while… but he caught a Rondo pass off the thumb in practice that either made it worse or caused a new injury.

    My prediction is since Daniels will be out for a little while Doc will give TA maximum three games to show something anything positive. If TA fails yet again then Doc will log on heavier minutes on PP and Ray.
    Like some of you have already mentioned give Lester and Giddens some burn. Why not Doc? Celts are playing scrubby teams from now until xmas. So why not experiment a little. Oh, I forgot… we know doc will play it safe.

    WTF man 6 – 8 weeks for that…


  • FSantos-whats up my man-3 games is not nearly enough time. I think realistically it will take at least a month for T.A. to be %100 ready. Who knows, maybe they’ll go out and get someone. Get well soon Quisy.
