Boston Celtics' Gerald Wallace Out for Remainder of 2014 Season With Torn Meniscus

Written by 

Gerald Wallace has caught some of the injury bug, and may miss some significant time. 

Wallace, a 12-year veteran, could sit out the rest of the 2014 season with a torn meniscus, Boston Celtics announced on Friday. Wallace felt soreness in his knee, took an MRI and found unsettling results, according to Celtics head coach Brad Stevens.

Boston has hit a brick wall as far as their backcourt health goes this season, so the Chris Babb signing comes at a great time for them. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge may have to add another body after listening to Wallace's latest development, which could include Rodrigue Beaubois who held a tryout on Wednesday for the Celtics. 

The 31-year-old small forward posted 5.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in the 2013-14 season. 

Note: Vitor Faverani may undergo knee surgery

Vitor Faverani could be out for the season as well. 

Faverani, who is nursing a bruised knee, may decide to take the surgery rout and end his season, the team announced on Friday. 

The 6-foot-11 center averaged 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game in the month of December, and has not played since Jan. 29.
