Boston Celtics forward Gerald Wallace underwent arthroscopic surgeries on his left knee and his left ankle on Tuesday morning at New England Baptist Hospital and will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season.
The surgeries were performed by Celtics team physician Dr. Brian McKeon and were assisted by Dr. Mark Slovenkai, the team announced. Wallace had been set for postseason surgery due to bone spurs in his ankle that had lingered since last season, but a recent MRI on his ailing knee revealed a torn meniscus that required more immediate attention. This is the first time Wallace has had surgery during his 13-year NBA career.
