Marquis Daniels May Return in February

by December 10, 2009

The aggravated wrist injury was initially thought to be minor, but the surgery could reportedly end up sidelining Marquis for quite some time: “The Celtics are offering no formal timeframe on the return of swingman Marquis Daniels, but according to a basketball source, the club is not expecting Daniels back until some time in February. Translation: Daniels will miss somewhere in the neighborhood of eight weeks depending on he recovers from surgery to repair a ligament injury in his thumb. Daniels underwent successful surgery this morning at New England Baptist Hospital to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, the Celtics announced today.”
