According to Gary Washburn and The Herald, the Celtics learned today that Chris Wilcox won't be back this season. There are no details yet on his heart condition, but we wish him the best on a speedy recovery. Personally, I thought Wilcox was the epitome of what the Celtics are all about. He had this energy and enthusiasm when it came to doing the dirty work and it was great seeing him throw one down from Rondo on a fast break. Major Tommy Points to you, big fella. Get well.
Update: Chris Wilcox will undergo aortic surgery at Cleveland Clinic on March 29.
