My main goal is to be ready for training camp.”

Daniel Theis will miss the remainder of the season with a torn left meniscus. Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania was first to report. Theis’ recovery period will be determined based on the damage found by surgeons, but he is expected to miss the remainder of the season, according to a person with knowledge of the injury. he person spoke with Celtics Wire under the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
The main factor in [Daniel Theis'] recovery time will be whether doctors elect to perform an arthroscopic debridement procedure, which removes a piece of the meniscus where it is torn, or a full repair. A debridement of the meniscus typically has a 2-3 month recovery period, while a full repair can require at least double the recovery time. The scope of the surgery will be determined by the imaging and examination already being done, as well as the condition of the meniscus when they go in for surgery.
Scott Souza: #Celtics Marcus Morris on Daniel Theis tearing meniscus: "That really hurt me because he played well. He's a great dude, a great teammate, always coming to work. For something like that to happen is definitely tough. It's just the #NBA, man."
Jay King: Brad Stevens said Daniel Theis is weighing his surgical options and will most likely miss the rest of the season.
Adam Himmelsbach: Stevens on Theis: “You really feel for him....we’re gonna miss him on the court but he’ll have a full recovery.”
Jay King: Stevens said Semi Ojeleye could play the 5 some when the Celtics need to go small now that Theis is injured. Yabu is headed back from Maine to rejoin the team.
Shams Charania: Sources: Celtics center Daniel Theis has suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee and will undergo season-ending surgery. Theis emerged as an important reserve for Boston this season.
Marc D'Amico: Brad Stevens has good news regarding Daniel Theis’ hamstring injury: “He did some shooting last night and felt really good. He’ll go through shootaround and will likely be available to play (tonight).”
Bill Doyle: Daniel Theis (sore right hamstring) won't play for Celtics tonight. Brad Stevens thinks Theis shouldn't be out for long, but "with muscular injuries, you just never know."
Chris Forsberg: Celtics rookie Daniel Theis and his reset nose will play tonight vs. Heat. He’ll still be masked. Brad: “I guess that’s just how quick it is."
Marc D'Amico: #NEBHInjuryReport: Daniel Theis (broken nose) is questionable for Wednesday night's game against the Miami Heat. Marcus Morris (sore knee) is ruled out.
Boston Celtics big man Daniel Theis broke his nose during Friday night's loss to the Utah Jazz, according to head coach Brad Stevens. After the team announced Theis was not expected to travel for Saturday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, there was an apparent reversal of plans. Theis did fly with the team. No word was given on his availability for the Grizzlies game, but it's a good sign he made the trip.

Joe Vardon: Excellent win for Team USA, given that it trailed by 7 at the end of one quarter. Jayson Tatum scored 27 and Kevin Durant added 23, and USA beat Czech Republic, 119-84, clinching the top No. 2 seed. It means a favorable matchup in the quarterfinals. More to come @The Athletic

Fournier remains the big question mark here. If the Celtics pay to retain him, then it’s likely a series of smaller moves to fill out the roster and then Boston could evaluate it needs early in the season. If Fournier gets a bigger offer elsewhere, the Celtics will have some tougher decisions but could emerge with another big trade exception and have a bit more freedom to spend this summer.

Mike Finger: Had a nice conversation with Patty Mills about the 2014 “Beautiful Game” Spurs and his currently rolling Boomers. As for whether he’ll have a new NBA contract by the time we see him again Tuesday? “That’s kept in the inner circle,” he said. “In the Australian trenches.”
