Following the Celtics 115-104 W over the Hawks last Wednesday, Wallace told staff that he felt discomfort in his left knee after a 12 point, 10 rebound performance.

 "[Wallace] had some knee soreness [so Thursday he] went to the doctor and had MRI. It shows he has a torn meniscus," Stevens said before the team's practice Friday at HealthPoint. "He's sitting there and he had no idea. I feel bad for him. I told you many times: Gerald's a warrior, he plays through anything and everything. Literally, anything and everything is what we're learning. The next step for him will be determined in the next couple of days, but obviously we want to prioritize his health."

Wallace will likely undergo surgery on Tuesday to repair his torn meniscus. This will end his 2013-2014 campain.

To add depth, Boston signed Chris Babb of the D-League Maine Red Claws.

Wallace was averaging 5.1 PPG, 3.7 RPG, and 2.1 APG in 58 apperances, including 16 starts.
