Gerald Wallace will have season-ending surgery to repair his torn meniscus as early as Tuesday.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Dec 09 '79
Gerald Wallace has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and is out indefinitely.
Wallace is also battling bone spurs in his ankle. Add the two injuries together, and the veteran could very well miss the rest of the season. The always injury-prone Wallace has appeared in 58 games this year, averaging 5.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists. His absence will open up tons of minutes for Jerryd Bayless and Chris Johnson, especially until Avery Bradley (ankle) returns.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Dec 08 '79
Gerald Wallace came off the bench on Wednesday and hit 4-of-8 shots for 12 points, 10 rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes.
He didn't have a steal, block or 3-pointer, but still played pretty well despite the benching. He's averaging 9.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.0 steals over his last five games, but he may have trouble playing this well if he continues to come off the bench. Jerryd Bayless started in his place tonight and blew up for 29 points.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Dec 07 '79
Gerald Wallace will come off the bench on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.
The Celtics not having Jared Sullinger (concussion) or Kelly Olynyk (toe) means Wallace will have to play some power forward. His value goes up a little bit tonight against another team with some holes in their frontcourt.

Gerald Wallace started once again with Avery Bradley (ankle) out on Saturday against the Kings, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.
Wallace got ejected after the game and made some funny comments about the refs so he might be looking at a fine. He's very hit or miss even when he starts and plays a boatload of minutes so owners should use him with extreme caution.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Dec 01 '79
Gerald Wallace made another start with Avery Bradley out with an ankle injury and had nine points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and a block on 3-of-5 shooting in 34 minutes on Wednesday.
He filled the stat sheet tonight, but his lack of scoring and shaky hold on a starting job makes us leery of trusting him. He also hit the floor hard on several occasions tonight, and he could find himself injured if he keeps playing like Crash. But as long as he's starting, Wallace should at least be on the fantasy radar right now.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Nov 22 '79
Gerald Wallace hit all three of his shots (including a three) to finish with eight points, three rebounds, four assists and three steals in a start for Avery Bradley (ankle) on Monday.
Wallace is worth a look in deep leagues if he gets spot-action like this but that's about it. He's been a mixed bag in this type of role so far this season.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Nov 21 '79
Gerald Wallace chipped in four points and three rebounds during Sunday's loss to Dallas, but he also turned the ball over three times in 15 minutes.
The veteran forward admitted that his "whole body is sore" after a hard fall on Friday, and even said half-jokingly that he should change his nickname since he's no longer able to 'Crash' around the court and recover as quickly as he used to. Despite filling up the stat sheet on Friday, Wallace has been too inconsistent for use in typical fantasy leagues.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Nov 19 '79
Gerald Wallace started for injured Avery Bradley (ankle) in Friday's win over the Kings, scoring eight points on 4-of-8 shooting with 12 rebounds, nine assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes.
Turn back the clock and count that money if you started him in FanDuel. Crash took advantage of a prime situation against a depleted Kings team, and with Bradley and Rajon Rondo expected back soon there's nothing really to see here. Wallace could easily go 1-for-3 for two points, three boards and a steal the next time out.
Gerald Wallace F BOS Nov 14 '79
Gerald Wallace returned from a family funeral in time to play on Sunday, but coach Brad Stevens opted to keep him out of the lineup.
The Celtics played with the lead throughout the first half and Stevens had already suggested that he'd give Wallace some time to gather himself emotionally, so his DNP-CD isn't too surprising. He should be ready to go vs. the 76ers on Wednesday.
