The Celtics injury list just keeps on growing.
More bad news for Celts fans as backup big man Leon Powe will miss the rest of the postseason with a torn left ACL, an injury he suffered in Game 2′s win over the Bulls. Powe went to the hospital during the game for tests and an MRI revealed the worst fears.
With Powe, Scal and KG out, it looks like it’ll be up to Glen Davis, Kendrick Perkins and the so far ineffective Mikki Moore to play in the front court for the rest of the playoffs.
My Take: At this point the Celtics would love to just have warm bodies to bang around underneath. Last night we saw poor results when Pierce was forced to play power forward while the Bulls had two big men on the floor. It’s going to take a Herculean effort by the three big men to play well and stay out of foul trouble.
