Celtics forward Gerald Wallace is out indefinitely after an MRI revealed a torn meniscus in his knee, coach Brad Stevens announced on Friday. He will likely undergo surgery and might miss the remainder of the season.
Stevens said Wallace had been playing with pain for some time. He was averaging 5.1 points and 3.7 rebounds for the Celtics this season. He played one of his best games of the season Wednesday, scoring 12 points and grabbing 10 rebounds against the Hawks.
The Celtics also announced they had signed guard Chris Babb to a 10-day contract.
