BOSTON – You can add Daniel Theis to the list of walking wounded Boston Celtics players.
The 6-foot-10 forward, a key sparkplug off the Celtics’ bench all season, has a left knee injury that had him walking around with a noticeable limp following Boston’s 99-97 loss to the Indiana Pacers.
Theis told NBC Sports Boston that he will have an MRI performed on the knee tomorrow morning.
“So we’ll see how that goes,” Theis said.
Depending on the results of the MRI, the Celtics may find themselves even more depleted than they already are in terms of regular rotation players.
Jaylen Brown suffered a concussion in Boston’s 117-109 win at Minnesota last week, with Celtics head coach Brad Stevens already ruling him out for games played this week.
The Celtics are also monitoring Kyrie Irving’s left knee which was too sore for him to play in the second half of Boston’s 99-97 loss to Indiana on Sunday. While it’s not considered serious, it may result in him missing games between now and the end of the regular season to better insure he’s good to go when the playoffs roll around.
Al Horford had a fever and did not play in Sunday’s loss, but his sickness isn’t considered serious so he’s likely back in the lineup for Boston when they return to the floor on Wednesday against Washington.
