Boston Celtics fans may finally have an explanation for the underperformance of former sixth man Jason Terry. Terry recently had an arthoscopic procedure on his left knee to remove plica. The plica can cause swelling and inflammation in the knee.
After the minor procedure, however, general manager Danny Ainge said, “I saw him today, and he looked great. He's doing really well."
When Ainge was asked if he believed Terry was bothered by his knee during the playoffs, he replied, "I'm sure it was bothering him."
If the Boston Celtics can get Terry back to the kind of player that he was in Dallas just two years ago, the Celtics will have a bit more of a scoring punch from Terry than they had this past year.
