Brandon Bass (Knee) Out 10-14 Days

Forward Brandon Bass, the Boston Celtics’ stellar sixth man, will miss 10-to-14 days with inflammation in his right knee, and if you bet on basketball, you can bet it could have been a key setback before Sunday’s 95-91 win against the Chicago Bulls.

Rivers said the news came as a bit of a surprise to him, as he was informed by team trainer Eddie Lacerte on Sunday morning that Bass almost certainly will be out through the All-Star break — which begins February 23rd, a game that sees many do betting online between the East and West in Orlando, the home of the Magic.

The replacement for Bass, rookie JaJuan Johnson, played a season-high 33 minutes and scored 12 points against Chicago.  Johnson added four rebounds (three offensive), two steals, one assist and one block.

More injuries:¬†Jermaine O’Neal (shoulder/knee) also missed the win over the Bulls, and Chris Wilcox stepped up in the starting lineup and registered 11 (5-6 FG) and nine rebounds in 26 minutes of action.
