Perk Update: Out Until At Least December

The Herald has an update on Perk's knee injury:

The Celtics center said last night that he has been told not to expect a return to action until late December or early January as the result of major knee surgery that has been scheduled for a week from today [Ed:  next Wednesday, July 7].

The Celtics center will undergo major reconstructive surgery to repair tears to the anterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee – all the result of an awkward and ultimately mortal landing with an offensive rebound during Game 6 of the NBA Finals. . . .

"They told me to expect late December or early January,’’ said Perkins. "I don’t know what is expected from something like this, but I’m just going to go with the plan and see what I have to do.

Get well soon, big fella.
