Marquis Daniels Has Surgery

Not good news via the Celtics twitter:

Marquis Daniels had surgery this morning to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb. No time table on his return

So, more of Tony Allen and Scalabrine?  If he's out for a long time, I wonder if a move could be made.

Red's Army talked to a Pacers blogger a few days ago about Daniels and his history of injuries.  It is worth a read.

Jared Wade: During his three years in Indiana, Marquis played 45, 74 and 54 games - but it felt like less. It was frustrating because when he did play, he was a solid, if unspectacular contributor. It's just that he was always in and out of the lineup so much that it wasn't just the missed games, but all of the wasted time reintegrating him into the lineup every month.

Update: Dan Duggan of the Herald reports that he'll be out 6 to 8 weeks.  That means late January at the earliest, most likely early February.
