Keyon Dooling's Comeback Cut Short for C's

Editor's Note: Please welcome our newest author, TLayman!

Just when the Celtics looked to be getting a little veteran depth at the guard position, Keyon Dooling went out with an injury in last night's 91-83 victory over the Magic.

Gary Washburn, of the Boston Globe, had a note about the latest setback for Dooling.

Meanwhile, Keyon Dooling’s return was short-lived as he left in the second quarter with a right hip pointer. He stepped on Jason Richardson’s foot and hobbled to the locker room. Dooling tried to come out for the second half but was told by trainer Ed Lacerte to go back to the locker room. He is uncertain for tonight’s game against the Pacers.

Dooling was already MIA from the Celtics rotation with a knee injury.

The 12-year veteran was averaging 6.6 points in 10 games for the Celtics this season. He has showed flashes as an outside threat opposite Ray Allen, especially in the early Miami game, and has shot the deep ball at a 40.7 percent when healthy.
