No Mo Powe

Bad news - reported by Marc Spears: Powe is done for the year.

According to an NBA source, Celtics forward Leon Powe suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee Monday night and will miss the remainder of the playoffs.

Powe had an MRI after injuring the knee in the second quarter of the Celtics' 118-115 victory over the Bulls in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. The injury was originally diagnosed as a sprain, but the Celtics apparently received worse news today. Powe is expected to have surgery soon.

Powe is a free agent after this year.  Not sure how much time he'll need to recover but this can't help him much.  Really, really, really hate to see this issue crop up again for this guy.  Aside from missing him on the court, I feel for him off the court.  Hope he recovers quickly and comes back to play for Boston.  Get well soon Leon.
