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.
