Sources: Daniel Theis to Undergo Season-Ending Surgery on Torn Left Meniscus

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.

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
