Boston Herald...no byline.Marquis Daniels will be out for 6-8 weeks after undergoing surgery on his left thumb.
The Celtics swingman missed last night’s game against the Bucks because of the injury and had undergone an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.
Last night Celts coach Doc Rivers said the Daniels injury has been affecting the entire second team.
“I’ve seen a lot of things. He hasn’t been able to hold onto the ball,” Rivers said. “I think it’s affected Eddie (House), because earlier in the year, and especially in preseason, Eddie was getting great shots off of Marquis passes. Now (Daniels) doesn’t have the ability to pass and I think that affects Eddie.”
Rivers also said: “I’ve been thinking about it and just watching him practice. He tried to get a rebound with one hand when he needed both. He wouldn’t say anything. He kept saying it’s fine, just a little pain, nothing big. … but let’s get it fixed.”
Apparently that’s just what the Celtics have done.
