Boston Celtics rookie center Daniel Theis has suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and will undergo season-ending surgery, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Theis underwent further testing Monday morning after suffering the injury in Sunday’s home loss to Indiana. The 6-foot-10 center emerged as a critical part of the Celtics’ rotation this season, averaging 5.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in 63 games. He has helped bolster Boston’s frontcourt unit as a floor-spacer and defensive presence, along with Aron Baynes and Greg Monroe behind starter Al Horford.

Boston (46-21) currently has a firm grip on the second seed in the Eastern Conference, but lost Theis, Marcus Smart and All-Star guard Kyrie Irving to injuries in Sunday’s loss to Indiana.

Theis, 25, joined the Celtics last offseason after playing internationally in Germany. He has also had an extensive career with the German national team.

Missouri sophomore Jontay Porter will miss the entire upcoming season after tearing his ACL and MCL on Sunday, the school announced.

Porter suffered the injuries during a closed scrimmage against Southern Illinois.

He is the younger brother of Michael Porter Jr., the former top recruit who missed the majority of his lone season at Missouri last year before being drafted in the first round of the NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets in June.

Jontay Porter, a 6-foot-11 power forward, averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks last season and was expected to see a jump in production in 2018-19. He was named preseason second-team all-SEC last week.
