“We’re looking at a couple of different surgical options,” agent Mark Bartelstein said yesterday in the midst of attempting to figure out where his client would land. “That would end his season, if it came to that. But we have him seeing the best people in the country, and then we’ll go from there.” Bartelstein fully anticipated yesterday’s move.“It’s something we knew might happen with their roster the way it is,” said Bartelstein. “We always knew there was the possibility he would get traded, because they’re trying to free people up on the roster,” he said. “They’ve been talking to a bunch of teams about him.” Boston Herald

Ken Berger: Not having much luck dangling Nate Robinson and pick for wing upgrade, Celtics now trying to use Marquis Daniels' contract, sources say. Twitter

The Celtics are one of those elite teams that will be on the list of every bought-out player who wants a chance to win a championship. So that will be to their advantage. It also means they are likely to waive Daniels to open a roster spot, with Daniels likely given a chance to make the team next season when he recovers from a bruised spinal cord. Daniels and his representatives are well aware of this possibility; Ainge created such quandaries by filling his roster with 15 players. But his pickings will be meatier once teams that acquired players for salary dumps complete the buyouts. Boston Globe

Then we’re going to see what we’re going to do going forward. He’s got one more visit left, then we’re going to talk with the Celtics medical staff.” Boston Globe

With Marquis Daniels having gone down with a bruised spinal cord in Sunday’s game after a collision with Gilbert Arenas, Ainge admitted that the team is more likely to make calls than simply field them. “We’re having conversations,” Ainge said. “I think the Marquis incident makes us a little bit more proactive rather than just receiving calls and seeing what else might be a possibility to back up Paul [Pierce] or Ray [Allen] in the playoffs.” WEEI.com

The Celtics announced via their Twitter account that Marquis Daniels was released from the hospital early this morning. The post said that Daniels was reported to have been joking and in good spirits. That’s a far cry from how he left the court yesterday afternoon after his scary injury against the Magic. Daniels crashed to the floor after colliding with Magic guard Gilbert Arenas. He lay motionless for some time before being strapped to a stretcher and removed from the court. Boston Herald

Midway through the second quarter, Nate Robinson pass the ball to Marquis Daniels in traffic. The pass was a little off, and when Daniels went to reach out for it, he caught his right thumb on another player. As Quis' grimaced in pain, you could only have thoughts about last season, when he injured his left thumb and was never the same for the remainder of the season. That doesn't seem to be the case this time around. Daniels seemed in good spirits after the game, with no bandage or ice on the thumb. He did say that it swelled up a little bit, but he could bend it without too much pain. Oh, and according to him, he'll still be able to play that new Call of Duty video game. Celtics Blog
