Wilcox appeared in 28 games last season, averaging 5.4 points and 4.4 rebounds over 17.2 minutes per game before a routine screening in March detected an aortic irregularity. He underwent surgery later that month at the Cleveland Clinic. Wilcox only this past week resumed basketball activities, but, once he completes his rehab, he will add much-needed frontcourt depth to the Celtics.
