Thumb Injury Could Sideline Boston Celticsâ€™ Chris Wilcox Â ESPN Bostonâ€™s Chris Forsberg tweeted that Doc Rivers said the Boston Celtics are expected to announced that Chris Wilcox will be sidelined with a thumb injury that could keep him out three to four weeks. Forsberg also tweeted that it is a ulnar collateral sprain, and [...]
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them hereâ€¦ highlighting the big storyline. Because thereâ€™s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
I love that title, because the Câ€™s sure have looked like theyâ€™ve had none at times this year. And as a Celtics fan, I expect the best every year, and we just havenâ€™t seen it yet. So whatâ€™s it going to take...

Boston Herald Avery close call â€“ Mark Murphy tells us that Avery Bradley may possibly return as early as this week. ESPN Boston Câ€™s want to stay big when [...]
The seemingly center-less Celtics, may be without faux center Chris Wilcox for a month according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe:
Chris Wilcox, who played some solid minutes off the bench, could miss a
month with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament in his right thumb,
according to coach Doc Rivers. Wilcox injured the thumb in Tuesday's
loss to the Chicago Bulls while...
Hello CelticsLife readers! The Boston Celtics will be coming to my city on Christmas Day, and I would never miss a chance to see the boys in green live. I will be at the game and hopefully some of you guys will be too!
I'd love for you to drop in, say hi, and maybe take a picture. If you're at the game, tweet at me @CjEuLnTICS. It'd be funny if any of you were in my...
For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I donâ€™t know if I said this before, but Sullingerâ€™s my hero.I would write more, but Iâ€™m going to see Les Miserables...
The Boston Celtics are signing forward Jarvis Varnado of Sioux Falls in the D-League, league source tells Y! Sports.
â€” Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) December 24, 2012
Varnado was drafted by the Miami Heat with the 41st overall pick in the 2010. The 6'9" power forward played 2 years in Italy and in Israel and went to camp with Miami in 2011 and 2012. He was one...
The last time the Celtics signed a shot-blocking force from the NBA Development League, he turned out to be a big part of their frontcourt rotation.
Jarvis Varnado is no Greg Stiemsma, but it made sense when the Celtics announced Monday that they had signed the 6-foot-9 forward, who played most recently with the Sioux Falls SkyForce in the D-League. Varnado, 24, was a second-round...
Happy Holidays CelticsLifers! Â May your days be merry and bobble-in' with a win streak starting tomorrow in Brooklyn.
What are you hoping to scoop? Â Varejao under the hoop? Â Josh Smith and an alley-oop? Â DeMarcus with his head re-grouped? Â Me - gimmeÂ Banner 18 and a coupe.
Okay so I'm not a poet and I certainly don't know it but sound off in the comments section...

The Celtics will sign Jarvis Varnado of the NBA D-League.
The Celtics have signed Jarvis Varnado.
Nothing is ever promised, but for all the Brooklyn Netsâ€™ improvements in the last year and a half, they figured to remain a reliable victim for the Celtics entering this season.
Even after two meetings and two Celticsâ€™ losses, all the ingredients were there to make the Nets a match made in heaven for Boston. They were a slow-paced team that defended poorly and was prone to bad...
Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesdayâ€™s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnettâ€™s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didnâ€™t respond well to:
